States to vote on adding 10th director to Cricket Australia Board


Melbourne [Australia], October 14 (ANI): Australian cricket’s owners will be asked to vote on the addition of a 10th director – the fourth independent director – to the Cricket Australia Board (CAB) at its Annual General Meeting (AGM) later this month.

CA’s intention is to hand the new position on the board to the ABC and Santos director, Dr Vanessa Guthrie, who has also served as deputy chair of the Western Australian Cricket Association in recent years and is the former chair of the Minerals Council of Australia, ESPNcricinfo reported.

“New South Wales wanted to put up Mike Baird, so went through a number of discussions around that, we also think Richard Freudenstein’s been an outstanding director, even more so at the moment given his media background, so we’ve moved him across as an independent and Mike Baird comes on,” CA’s chairman Earl Eddings said.

“It’s always very difficult with nine seats trying to meet all the requirements of diversity, ex-international players and skillsets. So we felt it was a prudent thing to take a bit of pressure off the states to put another independent there, so it gives us a bit more flexibility going forward. Vanessa’s an outstanding candidate, so I think it’s a win-win,” he added.

Such a change to the CA constitution must be agreed to by a two-thirds majority of the states, who at the AGM will each be represented by three voting representatives. This measure was itself a product of the political maneuvering required to move to an independent board, as the increase of all states to three votes – by a simple majority vote – was devised to circumvent South Australia’s opposition to the removal of direct representation.

MLB roundup: Yankees rout Red Sox for 10th straight win

September 20, 2020

J.A. Happ struck out nine batters over eight innings as the visiting New York Yankees recorded their season-high 10th straight win on Saturday with an 8-0 victory over the Boston Red Sox.

Clint Frazier homered among his three hits and drove in three runs for the Yankees, who have won 10 in a row for the first time since June 8-18, 2012. New York has won 12 straight over Boston dating back to last season.

Happ (2-2) recorded his first outing of at least eight scoreless innings without a walk since June 27, 2009. The 37-year-old left-hander scattered four hits in 113 pitches to improve to 13-4 in his career against the Red Sox.

Luke Voit and Kyle Higashioka each had an RBI single and Gio Urshela had a pair of sacrifice flies for the Yankees. DJ LeMahieu extended his hitting streak to 12 games with a single off Chris Mazza (1-2) to lead off the first inning. He advanced to third on a pair of walks before scoring on Urshela’s first sacrifice fly.

Athletics 6, Giants 0

Jesus Luzardo combined with three relievers on a six-hitter and Jake Lamb broke open a tight game with a two-run home run as host Oakland once again beat Bay Area-rival San Francisco.

The win lowered the magic number for the first-place A’s to one for clinching the American League West. With second-place Houston’s win over Arizona later Saturday, the magic number stayed at one.

Luzardo (3-2) took a no-hitter into the fourth and then caught a break when the Giants pieced together three singles in the inning. The third of the three was an infield single by Mauricio Dubon, but A’s first baseman Matt Olson, after taking a late throw from shortstop Marcus Semien, was able to pick Donovan Solano off third base to end the threat after he’d rounded the bag too far.

White Sox 5, Reds 0

Tim Anderson hit two of Chicago’s five solo homers and Dallas Keuchel grinded through four innings in his return from the injured list as Chicago cooled off host Cincinnati, which had its six-game winning streak snapped.

Anderson, Yasmani Grandal and Jose Abreu hit back-to-back-to-back home runs in the eighth to break open a two-run game.

Keuchel, who dealt with back spasms and most recently started on Sept. 6, was far from dominant, but was good enough to make it through 75 pitches while allowing four hits, walking three and striking out seven against the Reds, who are back in playoff contention.

Twins 8, Cubs 1

Eddie Rosario, Miguel Sano and Josh Donaldson homered, and Minnesota gained an easy win over host Chicago to clinch a playoff berth for the second straight year and the third time in the past four seasons.

Jorge Polanco added two hits and a run for Minnesota, which won for only the second time in its past six games. The Twins evened the series against the Cubs, with the finale set for Sunday.

David Bote doubled and drove in Chicago’s lone run. The loss snapped a five-game win streak for the Cubs.

Astros 3, Diamondbacks 2

Jose Altuve recorded his first multi-RBI game in almost a month, and Michael Brantley delivered a crucial defensive play in the seventh inning as host Houston defeated Arizona to square their three-game interleague series at one game apiece.

Altuve produced a run-scoring fielder’s choice grounder in the third inning and an RBI double in the sixth that pulled the Astros even at 2-2. Altuve drove home George Springer with his two-base hit and scored the go-ahead run when Kyle Tucker chased Arizona starter Luke Weaver (1-8) with an opposite-field RBI single three batters later.

With the Astros clinging to that one-run lead in the top of the seventh, Brantley completed an inning-ending double play by corralling a line drive off the bat of Jon Jay and firing to Altuve at second base to double off the Diamondbacks’ Pavin Smith. A replay review upheld the call.

Marlins 7, Nationals 3

Miguel Rojas finished a triple short of a cycle and Garrett Cooper homered and drove in three runs to lead host Miami past Washington.

The Marlins, who are chasing their first postseason berth since 2003, remained in second place in the National League East with nine games remaining. Miami will close out its home schedule on Sunday with a doubleheader that also concludes the five-game series against the Nationals.

Rojas went 3-for-5 with his fourth career leadoff home run off Nationals starter Patrick Corbin (2-6, 4.76 ERA). Cooper’s two-run homer in the third made it 3-0. Corbin allowed all seven Marlins runs on 14 hits over six innings, with no walks and seven strikeouts. Winner Pablo Lopez (5-4, 3.96 ERA) struck out seven and walked three while allowing three hits over 5 1/3 innings.

Dodgers 6, Rockies 1

Chris Taylor homered and hit a triple, AJ Pollock also went deep, and Los Angeles beat Colorado in Denver.

Clayton Kershaw pitched seven strong innings and Justin Turner also had two hits for the Dodgers. Kershaw (6-2) allowed one run on four hits and struck out six without walking a batter to help the Dodgers win their fifth straight and sixth in their last seven.

Kevin Pillar had two hits for the Rockies, who have dropped four in a row. Rockies starter Chi Chi Gonzalez (0-2) retired the last six batters he faced before leaving after five innings. He allowed three runs on four hits and struck out two with one walk.

Phillies 3, Blue Jays 1

Andrew Knapp and Adam Haseley each produced two hits and an RBI to lift host Philadelphia to a victory over Toronto.

Andrew McCutchen added an RBI single and two walks for the Phillies, who won their third in a row in this four-game series. Phillies starter Vince Velasquez threw 104 pitches over six innings. Velasquez (1-1) allowed two hits and one run while striking out six and walking three.

The Blue Jays have lost six straight games after managing just two hits. Blue Jays starter Hyun Jin Ryu gave up six hits and two runs in six innings. Ryu (4-2) struck out eight and walked only one.

Mets 7, Braves 2

Rookie David Peterson struck out a career-high 10 while Robinson Cano homered and finished with three RBIs as host New York beat Atlanta.

Peterson (5-2) got the better of fellow rookie Ian Anderson by allowing one run on three hits and four walks. He carried a shutout into the sixth. Peterson is the first Mets starter other than Jacob deGrom to strike out at least 10 since Noah Syndergaard whiffed 11 against the Chicago White Sox on July 30, 2019.

Atlanta’s Freddie Freeman went 0-for-5 as his 12-game hitting streak and 33-game on-base streak each came to an end. Anderson (3-1) took his first big league loss after allowing three runs on four hits and four walks while striking out eight over 4 2/3 innings.

Rays 3, Orioles 1

Yoshi Tsutsugo homered early, and Randy Arozarena added a tiebreaking two-run shot later as visiting Tampa Bay defeated Baltimore. The Rays have won the first four games of this five-game weekend series and will try to finish the sweep Sunday afternoon.

Charlie Morton (2-2) pitched five solid innings to get the win. He squirmed out of trouble a few times, allowing one run on five hits. He struck out six and walked two.

The Rays’ bullpen came through once more, throwing four shutout innings. Jorge Lopez (2-1) took the loss for the Orioles, giving up all three runs over six innings. He surrendered eight hits and one walk while striking out five.

Tigers 5, Indians 2

Detroit scored four eighth-inning runs following the retirement of their manager prior to the game and downed visiting Cleveland.

Ron Gardenhire cited health reasons for his sudden departure. He was replaced by Lloyd McClendon, who will manage the club for the remainder of the season.

Eric Haase and Daz Cameron each had two hits, a run scored and an RBI. Victor Reyes and Harold Castro each reached base three times and drove in a run for Detroit. Jose Ramirez drove in both runs for the Indians.

Cardinals 5, Pirates 4

Tommy Edman’s RBI single capped a five-run seventh inning for visiting St. Louis, who obliterated what had been a no-hitter in a win over Pittsburgh.

Mitch Keller pitched six no-hit innings for Pittsburgh, which built a 4-0 lead, but Sam Howard (2-3) gave up two runs and three hits in the seventh. Ke’Bryan Hayes and Jose Osuna each hit a solo homer, and Colin Moran had an RBI single for the Pirates, who have lost 11 of their past 12 games.

Tyler O’Neill added a two-run double and Kolten Wong an RBI single for St. Louis. Cardinals starter Kwang Hyun Kim pitched 5 1/3 innings, giving up four runs and six hits, with four strikeouts and one walk.

Brewers 5, Royals 0

Corbin Burnes struck out nine in six scoreless innings in his latest stellar performance to help Milwaukee blank visiting Kansas City.

The right-handed Burnes (4-0) gave up just four hits without issuing a walk before leaving after 100 pitches for Milwaukee, which won its third straight game and fifth in its past seven.

Ryan Braun broke the game open with a three-run homer during a four-run eighth inning against the Royals, who have lost the first two contests of the three-game series after entering with seven wins in their previous eight games.

Mariners 4, Padres 1

Justus Sheffield pitched six strong innings and Luis Torrens hit a tiebreaking, two-run double against his former team as Seattle defeated San Diego.

The Mariners were considered the home team as the series was moved from Seattle because of hazardous air conditions in the Pacific Northwest due to wildfires.

The loss prevented the Padres from clinching a National League playoff berth.

Angels 4, Rangers 3

Los Angeles rallied against one of the best pitchers in the majors to defeat Texas in the second game of their four-game series in Anaheim, Calif.

Mike Trout singled home David Fletcher in the bottom of the eighth to give the Angels a one-run lead and complete the comeback after falling behind 3-0 to the Rangers’ Lance Lynn. Lynn threw at least 100 pitches for the 36th consecutive game, and allowed three runs and seven hits, struck out five and didn’t walk a batter in seven innings.

Los Angeles starter Andrew Heaney went 6 2/3 innings, allowing three runs and six hits, striking out eight and walking one. Mike Mayers (2-0) retired the final six batters to earn the win. Shohei Ohtani homered, singled and scored two runs for the Angels.

Penrith Panthers notch 10th straight win with thumping 38-12 victory over Cronulla Sharks as Matt Moylan endures tough return to foot of mountains


Spun around so many times by Liam Martin on Friday night, he might just regain his senses by the morning. Only his old fans out west, who once adored him, will see the funny side.

The club he left behind took a giant leap to the minor premiership, thrashing the Sharks 38-12 on Friday night and the only worry was when Api Koroisau left the game late with a calf strain.

It was their 10th win a row and vaults them three points clear of the Storm and Eels in the race for the JJ Giltinan Shield with just five games left. If only each was against Cronulla, who they also whacked 56-24 last month.

John Morris’ side is still likely to make the finals, but on this evidence will surely be fodder. After 15 rounds they’re still to beat any team inside the top eight.

“They’re just too good a team and we probably got what we deserve,” Morris said. “They’re outstanding and certainly in my eyes the team to beat this year.

“They’ve got strength all over the park. We made six line breaks today, but every time we made a break black jerseys were coming from everywhere. There was no excuse for our defensive effort, I thought it was horrible at times. And we’ve got to fix that up really quick.”

Where Moylan fits into the picture come finals time, only his coach will know. He has first-choice half Shaun Johnson back next week, Chad Townsend perhaps the week after and young fullback Will Kennedy is serviceable in the No.1.

Johnson was a game-day withdrawal, days after he gave evidence at Kevin Proctor’s judiciary hearing which resulted in a four-week ban for the Titans captain. It also came in the same week he became a father for the first time.

If he had played, he would have spent the whole night standing in front of Viliame Kikau. Once bitten, twice shy?

For the 14th week in a row, Penrith didn’t concede a try inside the opening 20 minutes. Better still, they piled on three of their own.

‘I’m looking to see if there’s any complacency, but I can’t see it.’

Nathan Cleary

Kikau, who ended up on report for a late shot on Braydon Trindall, which his coach described as “clumsy”, stormed over the top of Johnson’s replacement for the opener inside four minutes. It was all one-way traffic afterwards.

“There’s still things in there we need to fix,” Ivan Cleary said. “I don’t mean to be arrogant or disrespectful to the Sharks. We’re just turning up and trying to get better each week. You don’t win 10 in a row if you’re not doing that. I’m looking to see if there’s any complacency, but I can’t see it.”

If Johnson hasn’t been able to shake the spotlight this week, then Brent Naden knows he feels.

The Panthers winger called out a group of fans for alleged racial abuse in the table toppers’ tight win over the Warriors last week, and was mobbed by his teammates when he finished off Martin’s long break when he breezed past Moylan.

In between, Josh Mansour touched down in his 150th NRL match and teenage sensation Stephen Crichton vaulted to the top of the NRL try-scorers’ list with his own in the shadows of half-time as Penrith cruised to a 22-6 lead at the break.

The second half was much like the first, Moylan helping Martin celebrate his freshly inked two-year contract extension by letting him cruise past again. Only this time the back-rower didn’t need any support to cross the stripe.

Penrith’s No.6 Jarome Luai, the man who has benefited most from Moylan’s exit, stepped his way over. Mansour bagged a double. Others were queueing up.

As for Moylan, he couldn’t get back up that tunnel quick enough.

MLB roundup: Machado, Padres slam Rangers in 10th

August 20, 2020

Manny Machado hit a walk-off grand slam on a full count with one out in the 10th inning Wednesday night, giving the host San Diego Padres a 6-3 win over the Texas Rangers.

With Jurickson Profar on second to start the inning and representing the tying run, Texas reliever Rafael Montero (0-1) walked Trent Grisham and Fernando Tatis Jr. after pinch hitter Greg Garcia had bunted Profar to third.

Machado then drove his sixth career walk-off homer into the second deck in left. It was also the Padres’ third grand slam, and third win, in as many days against the Rangers. Tim Hill (1-0) got the victory despite entering with runners on base in the top of the 10th and permitting the go-ahead run to score.

The Rangers took a 3-2 lead in the top of the 10th when Willie Calhoun drove home the tiebreaking run with a two-out, bases-loaded, 45-foot single in front of the plate. Texas had loaded the bases with no outs before Hill entered the game and held the Rangers to one run.

Astros 13, Rockies 6

Kyle Tucker tripled twice and homered among his four hits, Martin Maldonado, Carlos Correa and George Springer also homered, and Houston beat Colorado in Denver.

Correa had three hits, Tucker had four RBIs and Correa drove in three runs. Astros third baseman Alex Bregman left the game in the fourth inning after apparently injuring his right leg on a double to right. Matt Kemp, Chris Owings and Raimel Tapia had two hits each for Colorado, which has lost eight of its past 10.

Framber Valdez (2-2) allowed three runs, one earned, on seven hits and a walk in 7 2/3 innings. He struck out five. Ryan Castellani (0-1) allowed five runs on eight hits and a walk while striking out one in 5 2/3 innings.

Rays 4, Yankees 2

Mike Brosseau delivered a tiebreaking, pinch-hit single with one out in the eighth inning off Zack Britton, and surging Tampa Bay continued its success over host New York.

The Rays won for the 10th time in 11 games and improved to 5-1 so far in the 10-game season series with the Yankees. Choi and Mike Zunino hit early solo homers off Gerrit Cole, who ran his unbeaten streak to 28 starts. Britton (0-2) took the loss. Luke Voit tied Aaron Judge for the Yankees’ team lead with his ninth homer.

Tampa Bay starter Tyler Glasnow allowed two runs on two hits in 5 2/3 innings. He struck out eight and walked three. Ryan Thompson allowed two hits in a scoreless inning and winner Pete Fairbanks (3-1) struck out Hicks to end the seventh. Jalen Beeks stranded runners at second and third to record his first save of the season and second of his career.

Mariners 6, Dodgers 4

Austin Nola homered and drove in four runs as host Seattle snapped a seven-game losing streak while ending Los Angeles’ seven-game winning streak.

Dylan Moore also homered, Taijuan Walker (2-2) went seven strong innings and fellow right-hander Taylor Williams struck out Corey Seager with the bases loaded in the ninth to end it as the Mariners won the opener of a five-game homestand.

The Dodgers got solo homers from Max Muncy, Joc Pederson and Cody Bellinger. Other than the solo shots, Walker gave up only one other hit. He walked one and struck out eight, matching his season high.

Blue Jays 5, Orioles 2

Randal Grichuk hit two home runs and Tanner Roark pitched five solid innings as Toronto swept its three-game series with host Baltimore.

Grichuk hit home runs in the second and sixth innings to give him four in the series and six on the season, all in the past six games. He also flew out to the left field wall in the eighth inning. Grichuk’s solo shot in the second inning gave Toronto a 1-0 lead and his two-run blast in the sixth gave the Blue Jays a 3-2 advantage.

The right-handed Roark (2-1) gave up two runs (one earned) as the Blue Jays put together their first three-game winning streak of the season. The right-hander worked around nine hits with one walk and five strikeouts. The Orioles’ Anthony Santander extended his hitting streak to 14 games with a first-inning double. Baltimore left-hander Tommy Milone (1-3) gave up three runs on seven hits over six innings with no walks and seven strikeouts.

Red Sox 6, Phillies 3

Rafael Devers homered, doubled, singled and drove in three runs as Boston beat visiting Philadelphia to end its nine-game losing streak.

Mitch Moreland added a pair of hits and Jackie Bradley Jr. knocked in two runs for the Red Sox, who also ended the Phillies’ four-game winning streak by holding Philadelphia to three hits. Austin Brice (1-0) picked up the win in relief and Brandon Workman earned his fourth save in four opportunities with a scoreless ninth inning.

Phillies starter Jake Arrieta (1-3) tossed 4 1/3 innings and gave up five hits and four runs to go along with four walks and three strikeouts.

Indians 6, Pirates 1

Carlos Santana hit a three-run homer for the second straight night, Domingo Santana added a three-run double, and Aaron Civale pitched a complete game five-hitter as Cleveland won at Pittsburgh.

The Indians have won a season-best five straight games. The Pirates have lost 13 of their past 15.

Civale (3-2) struck out six and walked none. He lost his shutout in the ninth inning when Cole Tucker doubled and later scored on Josh Bell’s sacrifice fly.

Cardinals 9, Cubs 3 (Game 1)

Matt Carpenter hit a grand slam before the first out of the game, and five St. Louis pitchers combined on a two-hitter for a win in the opener of a doubleheader at Chicago.

Tyler Webb (1-1), the third Cardinals pitcher, earned the win with 1 1/3 hitless innings. Jack Flaherty, making his first start since Opening Day on July 24, gave up a run on one hit — Ian Happ’s leadoff homer — and two walks while striking out three over 1 2/3 innings.

Tommy Edman had three hits and two RBIs for St. Louis, and Brad Miller added a two-run double and a single.

Cubs 4, Cardinals 2 (Game 2)

David Bote laced the tiebreaking two-run single in the seventh inning as Chicago edged St. Louis to salvage a split of a doubleheader in Chicago.

The Cardinals were the “home” team in the nightcap, which was a makeup of a game scheduled to be played in St. Louis on Aug. 8 — one of 15 games the Cardinals had postponed due to a coronavirus outbreak within the team.

Kyle Schwarber and Willson Contreras opened the seventh inning with back-to-back singles off Andrew Miller (0-1). After Jason Heyward struck out, Nico Hoerner delivered a pinch-hit single to load the bases. Giovanny Gallegos entered and gave up Bote’s go-ahead hit on an 0-2 pitch.

Royals 4, Reds 0 (Game 1)

Brad Keller continued his stellar start to the season, allowing three hits in 6 2/3 scoreless innings, as host Kansas City blanked Cincinnati in the first game of a doubleheader.

Keller (3-0) didn’t allow a hit until Tucker Barnhart led off the sixth with a bloop hit to center field. Keller missed the start of the season as he built up strength after a positive COVID-19 test during summer training, but in three starts, he has pitched 17 2/3 scoreless innings. He struck out five and walked three — Jesse Winker all three times.

Trevor Rosenthal got the last out to record his sixth save in as many chances. Luis Castillo (0-3) took the loss for the Reds. He gave up four runs (three earned) on five hits in 3 1/3 innings, walking two and striking out five.

Reds 5, Royals 0 (Game 2)

Trevor Bauer threw a one-hitter as Cincinnati returned the favor with a shutout after host Kansas City blanked the Reds in the first game of the doubleheader.

Bauer (3-0) pitched seven scoreless innings in the nightcap. He allowed only an Adalberto Mondesi single with two outs in the fifth inning. Bauer walked three and struck out nine, lowering his ERA to 0.68. He has yielded just two runs on eight hits in 26 1/3 innings covering four starts this season.

All of the Reds’ runs came as a result of four home runs — a two-run shot from Jesse Winker and solo blasts by Eugenio Suarez, Nick Castellanos and Curt Casali.

A’s 4, Diamondbacks 1

Mark Canha’s two-run home run and 6 1/3 scoreless innings from starter Jesus Luzardo helped host Oakland earn a win over Arizona.

Under smoky skies from area wildfires, the A’s put an end to the Diamondbacks’ six-game winning streak.

Luzardo, a 22-year-old left-hander who battled shoulder problems last season, set single-game highs in innings pitched and strikeouts (seven) in earning his second win of the season against no losses. He walked two batters and gave up four hits.

Brewers 9, Twins 3

Ryan Braun, Christian Yelich and Avisail Garcia each hit two-run homers, and Brett Anderson allowed one run over six innings as Milwaukee cruised to a victory over Minnesota in Minneapolis.

Keston Hiura also homered and had three hits for the Brewers, who batted around twice in the first five innings en route to their fourth victory in five games. Garcia finished 2-for-4 with four RBIs and Braun and Yelich also had two hits.

Anderson (1-2) held the Twins to five hits and didn’t walk a batter while striking out five.

Mets 5, Marlins 3

Michael Conforto smashed a two-run, tie-breaking homer in the ninth to lead New York past host Miami once again, putting the Mets in position for a four-game sweep Thursday.

Miami has lost five straight games and eight of its past 10.

New York’s Jacob deGrom pitched six scoreless innings, lowering his ERA to 1.93. The two-time reigning National League Cy Young award winner allowed four hits and no walks, striking out seven. He was in line to win the game and go to 3-0, but the Mets bullpen allowed three runs — on a wild pitch with a .138 hitter at the plate, a hit-by-pitch to a .206 hitter and a walk to another .138 hitter.

White Sox 5, Tigers 3

Edwin Encarnacion smacked two solo home runs, and Jose Abreu went 2-for-4 with the go-ahead solo shot to help host Chicago defeat Detroit in the major league debuts of both starting pitchers.

Neither right-hander factored into the decision, however. Chicago’s Dane Dunning spaced three runs and five hits in 4 1/3 innings with one walk and seven strikeouts. The Tigers’ Casey Mize — the No. 1 overall selection in the 2018 draft — compiled a nearly identical line, allowing three runs on seven hits with zero walks and seven strikeouts over 4 1/3 innings.

The bullpens took it from there. Four Chicago relievers combined on 4 2/3 innings of hitless relief with one walk and four strikeouts. Evan Marshall (1-1) was the winner after striking out one in a scoreless eighth as the White Sox won their fourth straight.

Giants 7, Angels 2

Wilmer Flores and Austin Slater each homered to give host San Francisco a big lead early, and the Giants coasted past Los Angeles.

Flores hit a three-run homer in the third inning and Slater hit a two-run homer in the fourth, both off Angels starter Patrick Sandoval, to stake Johnny Cueto (2-0) to an early lead. The Giants starter took it from there, taking a shutout into the sixth inning before the Angels got on the scoreboard on Anthony Rendon’s two-out RBI double that knocked Cueto out of the game.

Albert Pujols’ RBI single later in the inning off Giants reliever Andrew Suarez got the Angels to within 5-2, but they never got closer. It marked the 2,086th RBI of Pujols’ career, tying him with Alex Rodriguez for third on the all-time list behind Hank Aaron (2,297) and Babe Ruth (2,214).

Nationals at Braves, ppd.

Washington’s scheduled game at Atlanta was postponed due to rain. The contest will be made up as part of a doubleheader on Sept. 4.
