Dodgers complete sweep of Nationals, come home with four-game winning streak

Subscribe here.When the Dodgers skipped town a week ago, they might have been trailed by angry villagers wielding pikes and torches. They had just been swept in a four-game series by the Cincinnati Reds and were in the throes of a six-game losing streak that would continue in Miami.They return on a four-game winning streak, matching their season-high, having swept a Nationals team that won 13 of 15 games before the Dodgers came to town.“A little bit of success kind of breeds confidence and takes that monkey off your back,” said Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner, who returned from his wrist injury at the start of this trip. “Get on a roll here, keep the momentum going. I think the confidence is back that they’re going to take a good at-bat every time. Bullpen did another outstanding job, covering a lot of innings this weekend.“I just think that little bit of swag, I guess, is back.”You want swag? Sunday’s starting pitcher Alex Wood even stole a base for the first time in his professional career. Nationals right-hander Stephen Strasburg was slow to the plate, no one was holding him at first base in the seventh inning so Wood told first-base coach George Lombard he was going. Lombard was “non-committal,” Wood said, probably trying to maintain plausible deniability.“I didn’t know he had the green light,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “I was as surprised as anyone. He just went on his own.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error PreviousWashington Nationals’ Juan Soto looks from the dugout during a baseball game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Sunday, May 20, 2018, in Washington.

Moving runners and hitting with runners on base occasionally. The bullpen has even done its job.And – they’re winning again.Kike’ Hernandez and Yasiel Puig hit two-run home runs Sunday, lifting the Dodgers to a 7-2 victory and completing a three-game sweep of the Washington Nationals.center_img Wood was safe at second but his left hamstring cramped up as he was warming up to pitch the bottom of the seventh and Roberts opted to pull him from the game. It’s probably a good reminder to the rest of the Dodgers not to get too far ahead of themselves with this four-game revival.“Any time you started the way we have it’s nice to come and play a quality team and get a sweep, especially the way we have with the doubleheader – three games in 48 hours,” said Wood, who held the Nationals to three hits in six innings. “It was a big series for us. You know you look for that marquee win or wins in a series against a team like the Nats, a playoff contender. Now you hope you go back home and hopefully turn the corner. I guess we’ll find out this week.”Hernandez was looking to turn a corner of his own. After striking out in his first at-bat against Strasburg Sunday, Hernandez was 5 for 37 (.135) with 14 strikeouts in May.“I think I’ve been the team’s worst hitter this month,” said Hernandez, who has been “working really hard in the cage” to make some changes in his approach that will simplify his swing.He kept it simple in his next at-bat, jumping on a first-pitch fastball from Strasburg in the fifth inning and driving it into the visitors’ bullpen for a two-run home run.“I was just trying to get a hit with a runner on base,” Hernandez said. “I feel like it’s been three months and I haven’t got one since spring training. I was trying to get a hit and used a very strong man’s bat and it went out.”Hernandez identified that very strong man as “my dad” – Chase Utley, who picked the bat for him Sunday.Strong as Puig is, he went without a home run in his first 108 plate appearances this season. His two-run shot in the eighth inning was his fourth homer in his next 25 plate appearances and it gave some breathing room to a bullpen that pitched 15 innings in about 28 hours at Nationals Park. The relief corps that had been a stack of Jenga blocks waiting to collapse on a nightly basis put up zeroes in 14 of those 15 innings.last_img read more

‘Surprised’ champions retain Brenda King foursomes

first_img Defending champions Claire Dowling and Tracy Atkin retained the senior women’s Brenda King Foursomes at Gog Magog, Cambridge – to their great surprise.“We thought we’d thrown it away,” said Claire as she recounted the tale of their last five holes: bogey, bogey, bogey, double bogey, par. Tracy added: “It’s a bit of a surprise, we never imagined we’d still win. (Image © Leaderboard Photography)But despite the finish they pulled off a one-stroke win over the Surrey pair of Alison Gee and Debbie Richards, while Staffordshire’s Sue Spencer and Sally Sketcher were third, two shots further back.Sharing fourth prize were the Frilford Heath pairing of Annie Gowing and Kate Evans who have come so close over recent years, having also been runners-up twice and third. “We’re the bridesmaids,” laughed Annie.Claire (Copt Heath) and Tracy (Leamington & County) have played in this event twice and won twice, building on a friendship which dates back to their days as internationals. But, as they came down the 18th at the end of their second round they were planning their ‘retirement’. “We were talking about packing it in – but now we’ll be back next year!” said Tracy.They opened their defence yesterday with a score of 78 on the Wandlebury course, which put them in a share of second place and a stroke behind the Gee/Richards combination.Today, on the Old course, they reached the turn in two-over par, before they began to falter, eventually returning a second round score of 79.Behind them Alison Gee (Walton Heath) and Debbie Richards (Burhill) had lost their slender lead over the front nine but they kept battling, holing a birdie putt on 15 and hitting the pin on 16. With one hole to play they were sharing the lead once more, only to bogey the last to end their challenge.This was also their second appearance in the event, having come fifth last year. “Perhaps it’ll be third time lucky,” said Debbie as she looked ahead to next year.The handicap trophy was won by Sue Spencer (Whittington Heath) and Sally Sketcher (Trentham), who were playing in the Brenda King for the first time. Sue is a past Staffordshire captain, while Sally was simultaneously the second team captain.Leading final scores157 Claire Dowling (Copt Heath) & Tracy Atkin    (Leamington and County) 78 79158 Alison Gee (Walton Heath) & Debbie Richards (Burhill) 77 81160 Sue Spencer (Whittington Heath) & Sally Sketcher (Trentham)    82 78162 Annie Gowing & Kate Evans (Frilford Heath) 82, 80; Karen Thompson & Gabi Heuchel (East Berkshire) 79 83165 Julie Ballard (Littlestone) & Sheila Stirling (Royal Mid Surrey) 83 82; Suzette Worthington & Paula Crabtree (Bristol & Clifton) 82 83 2 Oct 2013 ‘Surprised’ champions retain Brenda King foursomes last_img read more
