Dodgers’ Brandon McCarthy mows ’em down in return to mound

first_imgMcCarthy struck out eight in his five innings including the first batter he faced since April 25, 2015.“The first strikeout, I was like, ‘OK, at least, if nothing else, I didn’t end my career with a home run to Justin Upton,’” said McCarthy who gave up a three-run homer to Upton in San Diego before leaving his last game with a torn ulnar collateral ligament that had to be repaired by Tommy John surgery.“That was the first thing I thought of. But other than that, it became business as usual.”The dominant performance by a Dodgers starter has become business as usual at a very unexpected time. Since learning on Thursday that Clayton Kershaw would be sidelined indefinitely with a back injury, the Dodgers have won four consecutive games. Their starting pitchers in those games — Kenta Maeda, Bud Norris, Scott Kazmir and McCarthy — allowed only one run (in the first inning of Maeda’s start in Milwaukee on Thursday) on 10 hits in 23 innings.“I think Kersh would tell you everyone is the same in here,” Dodgers outfielder Trayce Thompson said. “Obviously, he’s not. He’s the best player in baseball, in my opinion. But you can’t try to make it all up. You can’t replace Clayton Kershaw. Everyone just has to do a little more. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “We’ve just got to take it one game at a time. I think that’s the approach we’ve been taking the last few days.”It’s an approach that left the Colorado Rockies stone cold. They managed just two runs and 12 hits in the three-game series at Dodger Stadium, striking out 41 times in the 27 innings. It was only the seventh time in franchise history they’ve been held to only two runs in a three-game series and the 12 hits were the second-fewest in those games.“All the guys, they’ve really taken it and embraced it and really stepped up,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said of the pitching performance in the Kershaw-less stretch. “Results withstanding, there was no panic. There was no people in the clubhouse feeling sorry for themselves.“The wins are maybe a coincidence. But I think the intent to play hard and pitch well and play well — there was a purpose behind it. Four in a row since Clayton — but we understand there’s a lot of slack that we have to pick up and keep going.”McCarthy’s return is a step in the right direction. He retired 15 of the 18 batters he faced, allowing a pair of singles and walking one. None of the baserunners advanced beyond first. His eight strikeouts included the final three batters he faced before being pulled from the game. McCarthy threw 72 pitches, matching his highest total from the four minor-league injury-rehabilitation assignment starts he made before rejoining the Dodgers.“This was as good as I’ve seen him in years past. This rivaled it, really,” Roberts said. “The fastball had late life, threw the breaking ball when he needed to, mixed in a couple changeups. Eight punch outs in five innings — he just kind of continued what our starters have done this entire series.“Drove in a run too.”That came on a bases-loaded walk in the Dodgers’ three-run second inning. Rockies starter Jon Gray gave up a leadoff home run to Thompson (his 13th) and the next four Dodgers failed to put a ball in play — Gray hit Howie Kendrick with a pitch then walked three straight, including McCarthy. Justin Turner’s two-out RBI single cashed in another run.“He was definitely better than I expected,” said Grandal, who added a solo home run in the seventh inning. “I’ve caught guys that came out of Tommy John surgery in that first start, it doesn’t really go quite as well as they want. I was surprised by the fact that his secondary pitches and velocity were there. I mean, 94 (mph), might have touched 95 and pretty much stayed there — very surprised to see that.“It seemed like he didn’t miss a step from last year. … It was a good time to step up.”center_img LOS ANGELES >> Brandon McCarthy is all too familiar with the process of being injured, rehabilitating and returning to action.But when his elbow gave out 14 months ago, he said the fear entered his mind “that it could have very well been my last pitches.”They weren’t.McCarthy returned to a major-league mound Sunday afternoon at Dodger Stadium and pitched five scoreless innings as the Dodgers completed a three-game sweep of the Colorado Rockies with a 4-1 victory.last_img read more

Thunder’s Sam Presti disagrees with Paul George’s claim that trade to Clippers was ‘mutual’

first_imgThunder general manager Sam Presti, however, disagreed with George’s claim when he spoke with reporters one day later.”I think the world of PG,” Presti said. “I think everybody knows that. I know that he had used the term ‘mutual.’ I wouldn’t necessarily agree with that because that would infer that we were wanting to trade Paul George, which I think most people would agree that that probably wasn’t on the top of our offseason priority list. But I would say that it was not adversarial at all, and I also fully respect the way that it was handled. Related News The Thunder did not want to move Paul George.The 29-year-old wing — who was sent to the Clippers earlier this month in exchange for a huge package of picks and players — said at a press conference Wednesday the trade “was a mutual thing” between himself and Oklahoma City. Did Kawhi Leonard lead the Lakers on? ‘They didn’t have to wait for me’ “And then, ultimately, we will, just like every team in the NBA or in pro sports, ultimately have to rebuild the team. I feel really good about the fact that we were able to make it work for everybody and figure out a solution.”Oklahoma City was reportedly looking to flip Paul and had some initial discussions with the Heat, but no deal materialized, and he is expected to begin the season with the team. “And the fact that we were able to make it work in a way that benefited the franchise made it something that we could do.”The Thunder are expected to enter a major rebuild after moving Russell Westbrook, Paul George and Jerami Grant this month. In those deals, they acquired eight future first-round picks, along with promising guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, wing Danilo Gallinari and nine-time All-Star Chris Paul.“The primary focus for our organization based on the circumstances that we inherited this summer is first, we need to reposition the franchise,” Presti said. “Second to that, we need to replenish the franchise after 11 years of not ever being able to do that because we were in such a pursuit for maintaining a team that could get to the postseason and contend in the postseason year after year after year. Chris Paul says he’s ‘excited’ to play for Thunder after Rockets trade Kawhi Leonard says he was ‘very close’ to choosing Lakers, Raptors over Clipperslast_img read more

For Family Promise of Monmouth County, Home is Where the Heart…

first_imgDespite her job at the Goddard School in West Long Branch, Hooten lacked the financial resources to afford an apartment for herself and her children. For the board members, staff members, legislators, volunteers and donors who worked to make it happen, this was a moment to celebrate: A day to cut the ribbon on a reality that began as a dream – the dream of having a stable home for the agency whose mission is to help homeless families find stable homes of their own. OCEANPORT – The red brick building at 501 Malterer Ave. was as crowded as a holiday party last Friday as supporters of Family Promise of Monmouth County gathered to celebrate the official opening of the agency’s day center for homeless families on a site formerly part of Fort Monmouth. FPMC, an affiliate of thenational Family Promiseorganization, paid FMERA$1 for a 99-year lease on the2,800-square-foot buildingand 2-acre site. The nonprofit investedapproximately $125,000 torenovate and improve thebuilding for its new mission. Anthony and Tatiana Rivera were among that number in 2018, when their mother, Suheil Hooten, found herselfwithout a home following theend of her marriage. The nonprofit is one of three social service agencies supporting the homeless that was granted the right to occupy a building at the former Fort Monmouth by the Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Authority (FMERA). The day center includesa comfortable living room,a fully stocked playroom,locker space where familiescan store their belongings,two showers, a kitchen, alaundry room and officespace for the agency’s threefull-time employees. Behind success stories like Hooten’s is a corps of volunteers from area religious congregations who work together to provide shelter, food and a constellation of services that support FPMC families as they tackle the obstacles that stand between them and stability. According to the 2010 U.S. Census, Monmouth County is the fifth wealthiest of New Jersey’s 21 counties, with an annual median family income of over $100,000. Nevertheless, some 200 children in this county become homeless every year. Those employees are supported by an estimated 1,200 volunteers from area Protestant, Catholic and Jewish faith communities who do everything from making sandwiches to wielding sledgehammers. By Eileen Moon “It was very hard as a single mom with two kids to have to give up and say, ‘What am I going to do?’ ” she said. Fortunately, she found Family Promise. “They put a roof over my head. Me and my children had a safe haven. They provided all our meals. That gave me an opportunity to save every penny that I had. It was just amazing. They really provided time for me to do what I needed to do.” Today, Hooten and her two children have a three-bedroom apartment in Freehold that she was able to afford with the help of FPMC’s savings match program that doubled the money she set aside from her paycheck to cover the cost of a security deposit. “We’ve been working ongetting into this buildingsince 2008,” said FPMCboard vice president MikeMeriton. “The great ironyof this is that our missionis to help families in needget a permanent home andwe didn’t have a permanenthome ourselves.” “We are a small team but we are a dedicated army,” said FPMC executive director Christine Love. “Everything that you see in this building, we did with blood, sweat and tears.” “I was homeless as a child, but I was also homeless as an adult,” Love told the gathering Friday. Despite those struggles, she eventually graduated summa cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in social work, followed by a master’s in business administration. “It doesn’t matter where you stop,” she said. “It matters that you keep going.”last_img read more

The group is in direct competition to industry giants like Ericsson, Huawei and Nokia Siemens, which offer similar technology and services to operators.“To be chosen by MTN as their strategic partner ahead of a strong list of competitors is testament to our unique service which is based on industry-leading technology platforms, content management expertise, managed services … combined with 24/7 technical support …” IMImobile founder and CEO Vishwanath Alluri said.“IMImobile’s value proposition and technology solutions will enable MTN to reduce the time-to-market for new services, boost Average Revenue Per User and keep MTN at the forefront of innovative services,” January-Bardill said.MTN introduced a number of products and services during the Fifa Confederations Cup in June 2009. “This content is currently being archived to allow football fans to relive the moment long after the games,” the operator said.Content streaming of the 2010 Fifa World Cup is one of MTN’s largest projects, as it has exclusive global mobile content rights for Africa and the Middle East. The MTN-IMImobile partnership will be instrumental in delivering exclusive World Cup content on subscribers’ handsets, including soccer match news, fixtures, match results as well as team and group profiles, MTN said. Through the partnership IMImobile will use its Service Delivery Platform, which will include its DaVinci Content Management System (CMS), to tailor content for local consumer preferences. An example of this would be providing material in French or Arabic.IMImobile will deploy its full CMS across Botswana, Côte d’Ivoire, Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, South Africa, Swaziland, Uganda, Zambia, Benin, Guinea Bissau, Guinea Republic Conakry, Liberia, Afghanistan, Syria, Cyprus and Yemen.“This is a major commercial milestone for IMImobile as we continue to build our offering to support leading operators worldwide,” said Alluri. “We are excited by the opportunity and are looking forward to helping MTN achieve its objectives of creating substantial additional revenue streams.”MTN is a multinational group that was founded in South Africa in 1994. It is listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange, Africa’s largest stock exchange, and operates in 21 countries across the world.IMImobile positions itself as a “leading provider of converged mobile and online technology platforms and content services to mobile operators and media companies around the world”. It lists leading operators and media companies such as Vodafone, Virgin Mobile, Google, Reuters, Airtel and Yahoo! as some of its customers. It has operations in 40 countries and offices in Asia, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East.last_img read more

SA vendors prepare for World Cup

first_imgInformal traders such as these are gearing up to take advantage of the business opportunities offered by the 2010 Fifa World Cup. (Image: Jeffrey Barbee, MediaClubSouthAfrica.com. For more free photos, visit the image library.)Informal traders are learning foreign languages in preparation for the thousands of visitors from all over the world expected during this year’s Fifa spectacular.Thulani Mabhena arrives early to secure his spot and start laying out his merchandise outside the Hector Peterson Museum, in Orlando West, Soweto South Africa’s biggest township. “Bonjour ma soeur [Hello my sister],” he says to a lady passing by rushing to catch a taxi to work. “Bonjour Thulas [Hello Thulas],” said the woman. “Comment allez-vous ma soeur? [How are you my sister?],” replies Mabena with a bright smile.Mabhena, or Thulas as he is affectionately known, has been practising French for the past four weeks. “I’m getting really good at the language now. By the time the foreign visitors arrive here for the World Cup in June I’ll be brilliant. This will make them feel welcome, and hopefully they will purchase a few items amidst all the excitement,” he said.Thulas uses a French book he got from a friend to learn French. He focuses on learning basic phrases, such as greetings, and simple terms to explain and negotiate prices and make sales. “I mainly started learning French because I realise how popular Soweto is, particularly this historical area. Many tourists come here all year round. I suspect during the World Cup there will be even more tours to this area.”The museum is on Khumalo Street and is a commemoration of the 16 June 1976 Soweto Uprising. Thousands of students took to the streets to protest against being taught in Afrikaans at schools, as dictated by the Afrikaans medium decree. Hector Peterson was one of the hundreds of children who were killed when police responded to the protestors with teargas and live bullets.The historic museum is a short distance from where police opened fire on students. It takes visitors on a journey through the build-up to the youth rebellion, the events of the day and its tragic end result.Tourists visit Soweto all year round, taking tours to historic sites such as the Hector Peterson Museum. This makes it a hot spot for vendors selling South African arts and crafts, and other memorabilia.Thulas sells handmade, beaded leather shoes, shirts, hats, wooden bangles, wooden wine glasses, handmade painted tablecloths, calabashes, small sculptures of elephants and rhinos, key holders, and other craft painted with South African flag colours.“I’m not the only person selling here as you can see. I want to put myself a step ahead of the pack. The other vendors here can’t speak French. Who do you think the tourist will want to buy from – the guy speaking a language they can’t understand, or the one that speaks their language?”Serving SA on a hot plateAbout 10 Kilometres east of the museum lies Soccer City the largest stadium in Africa and the flagship venue for the Soccer World Cup 2010. The stadium can seat 80 000 people and will be hosting both the opening match and the final.Ntabiseng Molefe is cooking up a storm with her friend Lufuno Mgomane. They dance and sing along to traditional Mozambican music coming from a small CD player. “Bom dia Senhor [Good morning Sir],” they say in unison as a gentlemen approaches them to enquire about the price for one plate of food. The gentlemen speaks to them in Portuguese and they reply in Portuguese, checking their notebooks every now and then to make sure they get each phrase right.They make a successful sale and break into uncontrollable laughter from excitement as the man walks off with his plate of steamy tripe and pap (Afrikaans for stiff porridge) singing and bopping his head to the sounds of the Mozambican music in the background. “We did it amigo [friend],” said Molefe.Mgomane and Molefe have been learning Portuguese from their neighbours and construction workers working in the area who come from Mozambique. “We sell food here which is just a few kilometres from the stadium. Tourists will pass us here on the way to the stadium. They will smell our lovely South African food and want to taste it. Then we will charm them with our Portuguese. We’ll be selling endless plates.”The two ladies say they chose Portuguese because they believe it’s more universal in ‘football world.’ “The Brazilians are the most popular team and the Spanish team and they can both speak and understand it. Many African countries speak it too. In football world I think most people can speak or understand some Portuguese,” said Mgomane.Molefe says they are keen to be part of the big event and want to interact with the tourists, football fans and players. By learning the language, they believe they are giving themselves a good chance in business and in enjoying this once in a lifetime experience. “I’m sure the players will also drive past here touring or on the way to the stadium for games. They will hear the music and us speaking their language. I’m sure they will give us their autographs and say hello,” she said.“Tourists might also get lost on the way to the stadium and they always ask the people on the streets for directions. Imagine how welcome and safe they will feel when we respond to them in their own language. The music helps to create a vibe too and draw people’s attention. It will make tourists stop and dance for a while, the smell will catch them, and we will make big sales. ”Mgomane agrees. “We are determined to sell this country of ours. With every sale we make we will serve South Africa to the tourists. They will remember the warmth of the pap, and the people of this country.”Vendors key to tourism attractionThe Durban police station has set up classrooms where vendors can learn French. A young woman who recently finished her French degree has been giving classes to vendors who work along the beachfront where most of the city’s top hotels are located.The classes have been going on for the past two months, and take place three times a week.Durban will host seven World Cup matches and expects 100 000 visitors during the tournament. The city wants to ensure that vendors benefit from the influx of visitors.The vendors will not be allowed in areas managed by Fifa, including the stadiums, where only official World Cup partners such as Coca-cola and Budweiser are allowed to sell their products.To insure the traders are still able to benefit from the event, three new markets are being built to house 500 stalls along the beachfront.“Informal traders are a key tourism attraction,” said Vumi Mchunu, the city’s coastal areas manager“It is important for them to know other languages in order to interact with their customers clearly during the World Cup,” she said.Though many vendors in South Africa have little education, some battling to speak English one of the country’s official languages. They are enthusiastic about learning a new language, hoping it can boost their growth and their small business.last_img read more
