(AP Photo/David Dermer)CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Indians can return to clinching their division and playoff preparations.Their historic winning streak is, well, history.ADVERTISEMENT Cleveland had its AL record run stopped at 22 straight games on Friday night as the Indians were beaten 4-3 by the Kansas City Royals, who became the first team to conquer the defending league champions since Aug. 23.Jason Vargas (16-10) pitched into the sixth and Brandon Moss homered off Trevor Bauer (16-9) as the Royals, who were beaten five times by Cleveland over the past few weeks, ended baseball’s longest win streak in 101 years.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSFederer blasts lack of communication on Australian Open smogThe Indians set a new league mark and came within four of matching the overall record held by the 1916 New York Giants, a 26-game string that included one tie.Despite the loss, Cleveland’s magic number for clinching the AL Central dropped to two following Minnesota’s loss to Toronto. End of his agony? SC rules in favor of Espinosa, orders promoter heirs to pay boxing legend Winning start Following a magical, walk-off win in extra innings on Thursday night, the Indians couldn’t muster another late rally.When Francisco Lindor struck out with a runner on first to end it, the sellout crowd of 34,025 gave the Indians a prolonged standing ovation. Manager Terry Francona brought Cleveland’s players out of the dugout to salute their fans, whose cheering grew louder and louder.This was something they’ll likely never see again in their lifetimes and both the Indians and their fans wanted to savor every second of an accomplishment while looking forward to October, when the games become more meaningful.“They’ve been so supportive,” Francona said of the crowd. “The atmosphere around here is incredible and I think our players wanted to show their appreciation. It’s by no means the last game of the year or anything like that, it’s just been pretty incredible how they’ve reacted and we just wanted to show our appreciation because we don’t take it for granted.“I don’t think anything is over.”ADVERTISEMENT Break new ground Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles01:04Trump attends World Series baseball game in Washington DC02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player awardcenter_img A costly, catty dispute finally settled Learning about the ‘Ring of Fire’ The Indians, who are already assured a playoff spot, not only broke the previous AL record of 20 held by the 2002 “Moneyball” Oakland Athletics, but they served notice that they well could be the team to beat in the postseason as they attempt to get back to the World Series and perhaps end their 68-year title drought after the Chicago Cubs halted their 108-year dryspell at Cleveland’s expense in 2016.With one last chance in the ninth, the Indians put the tying run on base before Royals reliever Mike Minor struck out the side for his first pro save, fanning Lindor on a pitch in the dirt for the final out.It was Lindor on Thursday night who had prolonged the streak with a two-out, two-strike RBI double in the ninth inning before Bruce doubled home the winning run in the 10th to give Cleveland win No. 22.That touched off a wild celebration, which shook Progressive Field and gave Cleveland fans a chance to get ready for bigger games to come.“I think it was appropriate. We haven’t lost a game in three weeks. We played a good game,” Cleveland outfielder Jay Bruce said. “It wasn’t like we got just blown out or anything. I think (it was important) to have a bit of a light-hearted attitude about it all, and not take it too hard, obviously, because we’re in a great position.“We just did something that, depending on who you ask, one or no teams have ever done. So, it’s one of those deals where we understand what the situation is, and this is not something that would happen very often.”For the better part of a month, the Indians had no equals.“What they did over there was amazing. I mean, it’s utterly amazing,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “It’s just unfathomable for me that you can go three weeks without losing a game. I mean, it was a tremendous accomplishment.”“I mean, we’ve got a runner on first, two outs, two strikes on Lindor, and I told Jirsch (third base coach Mike Jirschele), ‘man, we’ve been here before.’ Luckily we got through it tonight,” he said.On their way to making AL history, the Indians romped through the league like no team has before.

‘More alive than ever’, says Neymar after scoring debut

first_img0Shares0000Neymar marked his Paris Saint-Germain debut with a goal and an assist as his new team beat Guingamp 3-0 on Sunday nightPARIS, France, Aug 14-Neymar wasted no time in making an impact on the field for Paris Saint-Germain, scoring on his debut in a 3-0 win at Guingamp and declaring he felt “more alive than ever”.The Brazilian world record signing was handed a start by coach Unai Emery for the game in Brittany, two days after international clearance came through for his 222 million-euro ($261 million) switch from Barcelona. The 25-year-old, at home in PSG’s all yellow change kit, played a part in the own goal scored by Jordan Ikoko that gave the away side the lead early in the second half.He then set up the second goal for Edinson Cavani with a superb pass in behind the Guingamp defence before completing a comfortable victory with his team’s third goal eight minutes from the end as PSG made it two wins from two to start the French season.“People think that leaving Barça is to die, but no, it’s the opposite,” Neymar told reporters.“I’m more alive than ever. I play, I’m very happy, and football is the same. Only the country, the city and the team change, but football is the same.”Guingamp coach Antoine Kombouare, a former PSG player, described Neymar as a “phenomenon”.“It’s been a long time since I have seen such a phenomenon. All his teammates want to play with him and he brings competition,” said Kombouare.“Everyone gets more time because of him, he can accelerate and make a difference. We’re happy that we don’t have to play PSG every weekend.”Despite the many distractions of the last couple of weeks, including trips to China, Portugal and the French Riviera and glitzy presentations to the media and PSG fans, Neymar lasted the full 90 minutes.He had taken the place of Javier Pastore in the Paris side in the only change from last week’s 2-0 win over Amiens, completing a 350 million-euro front three with fellow South Americans Cavani and Angel Di Maria.Neymar was one of four Brazilians in the PSG line-up, not including Brazil-born Italy midfielder Thiago Motta, for the game played before a sell-out crowd at the 18,000-capacity Stade du Roudourou.Guingamp, a sleepy little town 500 kilometres west of Paris with a population of barely 7,000, may have been a slightly incongruous setting for such an occasion but the match was broadcast live in more than 180 countries according to his new club.That was a sign of the interest generated worldwide by Neymar’s transfer, which Qatar-owned PSG hope will help them conquer Europe after so far coming up short in the Champions League in recent seasons.– ‘Quality players’ –Paris Saint-Germain’s forward Neymar (3rd-R) celebrates after scoring a goal with defender Thiago Silva during the French L1 football match against En Avant Guingamp (EAG) at the Roudourou stadium in Guingamp on August 13, 2017 © AFP JEAN-SEBASTIEN EVRARDEmery’s side are also desperate to regain the French crown after losing out to Monaco last season.“I’m very happy. The main thing was to win. The team played well and I played well,” Neymar, speaking in Spanish, told Canal Plus, after the match.“It is always very important to score, not just in the first game. This is a very big challenge for me as a person, but we have a great team.”Neymar, playing mainly as an inside left, threatened sporadically in the opening stages before his cross in the 35th minute found compatriot Marquinhos, who headed against the woodwork.He then watched as a Cavani free-kick was tipped over by Karl-Johan Johnsson as the first half ended goalless.But PSG needed just seven minutes of the second half to get the breakthrough with Neymar involved in the build-up as Ikoko tried to play the ball back to Johnsson and succeeded only in passing it into his own net.Neymar then released Cavani with a delightful pass as the Uruguayan slotted home the second goal just after the hour mark.All that was missing was a goal of his own and that arrived eight minutes from the end as Neymar finished from close range following a Cavani cutback.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

HORRIFIC: DONKEYS STARVED TO DEATH AND LEFT ABANDONED IN FIELD

first_imgA walker was left shocked after finding two dead donkeys missing both their eyes and ears in a field in Gaoth Dobhair.The remains of the two animals were allowed to rot away in a field at Brinaleck for a month after they starved to death, a court heard today.ISPCA Inspector Kevin McGinley told Dungloe District Court today that he found the dead animals when he called to the farm of John Gallagher of Brinaleck, Gaoth Dobhair on January 31st, 2012. As well as finding the two dead donkeys, Inspector McGinley found a third donkey who was in poor condition with badly-overgrown hooves.Inspector McGinley said he had spoken with the 72 year old owner who admitted the animals had died a month earlier from exposure to the weather.Inspector McGinley said bushes in the field had been eaten back to the bare branch suggesting the animals had not been fed.Gallagher, who failed to turn up in court, faced one charge of causing cruelty to a donkey and two further charges of failing to dispose of two dead donkeys.The court heard that while Gallagher also used to own seven horses and another donkey, he no longer kept equine animals.Judge Paul Kelly found Gallagher guilty of all thee charges and fined him a total of €550 and also ordered him to pay the ISPCA’s costs of €513.Speaking after the case, Inspector McGinley said he was satisfied the case had been settled.“We believe it sends a clear message to all equine owners of their responsibility to care for and provide the necessary feed and vet treatment if and when require.“It is common knowledge that Ireland is going through an equine crisis at the moment.“However, owners must take responsibility for their care and welfare,” he said.********Donegaldaily.com – Donegal’s No1 News & Sports Website – more than 100,000 HITS Every Day – more than 30,000 Visitors Every DayFollow the leader on:https://twitter.com/DonegalDailyHORRIFIC: DONKEYS STARVED TO DEATH AND LEFT ABANDONED IN FIELD was last modified: February 13th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donkeys crueltydungloeGaoth DobhairISPCAlast_img read more
