ck, after beating Arizona March 22 during the Dodgers season- Antworten

LOS ANGELES -- Brandon Phillips gets as much of a charge out of making a defensive gem to save a run as he does hitting a home run. Wednesday night, he was able to do both in the same inning to help the Cincinnati Reds pin a frustrating loss on two-time Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw. Phillips and Homer Baileys seven effective innings led the Reds to a 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday night. "Regardless of who was pitching, it feels good just to come through for the team and do something positive to get us going in the right direction," Phillips said. "We havent been really scoring that many runs and havent been getting many clutch hits. Kershaws one of the best pitchers in the game, but tonight we just hit some mistakes." Phillips, a four-time Gold Glove second baseman, robbed Andre Ethier of an RBI single when he made a diving stop of his grounder in the hole and threw him out after a leadoff double by Dee Gordon. Bailey escaped the inning unscathed by striking out Yasiel Puig and Hanley Ramirez. "I feel like defence wins championships and offence sells tickets," Phillips said. "That defensive play I made really saved the game. Im surprised I got to that ball. I didnt really see it come off the bat really good." Bailey (5-3) allowed two runs and five hits while striking out six. The right-hander has won consecutive starts for the first time this season following his 5-3 victory over St. Louis last Friday. "It was good for me, especially with the April I had," Bailey said. "Obviously its not how I wanted to start the season. It took a little while to get my legs underneath me. I would have liked to put up a few more zeros, but doing it against Clayton -- and the fact that we scored three runs -- you just make sure you lock them down. It was a really big win. We needed that one. You dont ever want to get swept. I dont care where youre at or who youre playing." Ethier, who drove in a season-high four runs Tuesday night, was 0 for 3 against Bailey and is hitless in 21 career at-bats against him with seven strikeouts. "He was just moving the ball so well," Ethier said. "Hes one of those guys who can be wildly effective at times, and other times he can spot up a pitch and throw something in there at 93-94 -- then reach back for 96-97 -- and its moving all over the place. He can throw his other pitches for strikes, too, so its a tough combination. In the past, Ive seen a lot of cutters from him, and tonight I didnt see one. It was all two-seam fastballs and one breaking ball." Puig, who has reached base safely in 29 straight games, led off the Dodgers sixth with an opposite-field homer to right-centre that narrowed the gap to 3-2. But former Dodgers closer Jonathan Broxton retired Puig and Ramirez on flyballs for the last two outs in the eighth after replacing Manny Parra with a runner at second, and Aroldis Chapman pitched a perfect ninth for his fifth save. Kershaw (3-2) allowed three runs and seven hits in seven innings and struck out nine. He retired 14 of his next 16 batters after Phillips homer. The left-hander, who led the majors in ERA in each of the previous three seasons, has a 3.57 mark through his first six starts this year. He missed all of April because of a strained muscle in his back, after beating Arizona March 22 during the Dodgers season-opening two-game trip to Australia. Matt Kemp, who hadnt started a game in left field since his rookie year, was back there Wednesday on the eighth anniversary of his major league debut. It was his eighth career start in left, and first since June 21, 2006. Todd Frazier doubled over Matt Kemps head leading off the sixth and scored on a wild pitch to give Cincinnati a 3-1 lead. Only one of the last 34 home runs Kershaw has given up has been with more than one man on base. That was a three-run shot by former Seattle catcher Miguel Olivo, who eventually joined the Dodgers in January as a free agent -- and was released last week after biting off a piece of Triple-A Albuquerque teammate Alex Guerreros left ear during a dugout brawl. NOTES: Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully was back in the Dodgers TV booth after missing two games because of a chest cold. ... Canadian-born OF Jamie Romak, promoted from Triple-A Albuquerque because of Crawfords injury, pinch-hit for Kershaw in the seventh and grounded out to second on the first pitch he saw in the major leagues. ... Dodgers RHP Brandon League retired both batters he faced. He hasnt allowed an earned run in a career-best 22 innings spanning his last 16 appearances. Andre Roberts Womens Jersey .

Cody Ford Youth Jersey .C. -- Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith has been ruled out for Sundays game against the Atlanta Falcons.Hard work, dedication and sacrifice are the main reasons why Andy Murray has decided to re-hire Ivan lendl as his coach, claims Sky Sports tennis expert Mark Petchey. Murray announced on Sunday he would be rekindling his relationship with Lendl, with whom he enjoyed an enormously successful spell between 2012 and 2014.During their first period working together, Murray won Olympic gold, the US Open and then Wimbledon in 2013, but the partnership ended as Lendl felt unable to commit the amount of time his pupil required. Lendl (L) watches Murray during a practice session Murray has not won another major title since and, after splitting with Amelie Mauresmo last month, the world No 2 expressed his delight at sealing the reunion ahead of the tournament at Queens Club this week.And Petchey agrees that the 29-year-old has clearly made the right decision to go back and reappoint the Czech in order to bring the best out of him and to also work out a way of beating world No 1 Novak Djokovic.When you look at it in the cold light of day, certainly from Andys perspective it was obviously the golden period in his career, pardon the pun, with the gold medal and with obviously the two majors that book-ended that particular glory as well, he told Sky Sports. Murray will want Lendl to help him bring down Djokovic If youre looking for who is available right now in terms of a coach and obviously you want good feelings on court when youre looking at your box, then who better than Ivan to rediscover those.Not that Murray has been playing badly. In lots of ways this doesnt distract with what Jamie [Delgado] has done because hes had a fantastic claycourt season and hes played unbelievably well.But from Andys perspective he wants to put his name on another major trophy and felt that this is going to give him the best opportunity. Highlights from the Rome Masters Final as Murray recorded a rare victory over Djokovic Andy feels the need to talk to someone who has been in his shoes and theres not that many people around that have been in his shoes and if thats what he needs heading into a final of a major tournament then thats the type of person he needs to have a conversation with. If youre looking for who is available right now in terms of a coach and obviously you want good feelings on court when youre looking at your box, then who better than Ivan to rediscover those. Mark Petchey on Ivan Lendl Clearly that is why he has gone down the route that he has and unquestionably he has so much respect for what Ivan has achieved. They have very similar outlooks in terms of hard work, dedication and sacrifice. Theyre very compatible on a professional level.Petchey insists Murray will want Lendl to help him conserve energy through the main draw of a Grand Slam. At the French Open the Scot was put through his paces in the early rounds, playing two tough five-setters against Radek Stepanek and young French wildcard Mathias Bourgue. Murray needs to conserve energy at major tournaments I dont think its a technical thing that Andy is looking for from Ivan, said Murrays former coach Petchey. I think that Andy is looking for efficiency through the draw. A couple of times guys got inspired and all those slightly energy-sapping moments that come in a major tournament which possibly can contribute to you not playing as you would like when you get to the final. Murray defeated Djokovic in thrilling style to claim his first ATP Rome 1000 Masters title The whole process of winning a major isnt just about hitting forehand and backhands and serving well.dddddddddddd A lot of it is about the conservation of energy and from Andys perspective when he looks back at the French Open final, hell be feeling as though his first serve percentage dropped dramatically after the first set so was that a function of not getting through the draw as easily as he would have wished? Sometimes you cant do anything about it.The beauty of the sport is that sometimes opponents can play fantastic tennis and you have just got to adapt and react to that which is what he did, but was that a factor in why the first serve went down? Djokovic beat Murray in four sets in the French Open final last month Murray will hope Lendls impact carries into Wimbledon in a fortnights time, when he will again bid to bring down Djokovic, his conqueror in both the Australian and French Open finals this year.Djokovic currently holds all four major titles as well as dominance over the British No 1, winning 13 of their last 15 matches, including the last five at Grand Slams. Murray was humble in defeat to Djokovic at Roland Garros Playing Novak, he extracts perfection from you. You have to play virtually perfect tennis which is stressful enough stepping on to the court to play that and obviously you have to have the maximum amount of energy over five sets to be able to execute that, added Petchey.Getting Ivan when he did will give Andy that little bit of inspiration in terms of being able to play that week at Queens Club and find the level that hes going to need to win that title again. For Andy, grass is a very natural surface on which he moves naturally on it. He always returns well so as long as he returns well, hes one of the best three players comfortably on this surface and so he knows that if he puts in his best tennis on a grasscourt hes more than capable of winning plus he has a winning record over Novak on grass. His priority at the moment is working a way of getting past him. Check our game-by-game updates from Andy Murrays matches at Queens Club on skysport
