Cheap way to enjoy spring break, MLB

first_imgSome students this spring break won’t be lucky enough to travel to such sinful cities as Cancun or Panama City Beach. Their MTV spring break will have to wait.But sports fans can have their cake and eat it, too. With a little planning, a little bravado and a taste for gas station food, they can have a spring break to remember for less than $500.This year’s belligerently belated spring break schedule coincides with Major League Baseball’s opening week. The following is a guide to the perfect baseball spring break.First, take a few days to recoup. The semester has been long and arduous, and the season doesn’t start until Monday. On Tuesday, April 3, pack up the Honda Civic or Toyota Camry — whatever your roommate drives — with clothes, sleeping bags and the necessary sports magazines. There will be a lot of time to read on this trip.The first stop on this epic journey will be beautiful Busch Stadium in St. Louis to see the defending World Series champions take on the New York Mets. Leave Madison early in the morning in order to enjoy some of St. Louis’ sights. It’s a five-hour drive, and the game doesn’t start until 7 p.m.After checking out the arch and some of the other sights and sounds, it will be time to head over to Busch. Don’t go too early, though, because the game is sold out. But don’t fret. Outside the stadium will be a man most likely named Buzz. You’ll know him by the sun spot on his bald head and the patch over his right eye. Wait until just after the game starts to approach him. He’s crafty, but he loves to haggle, and you will be able to get some decent seats for a maximum of $50 per person. These will be the priciest tickets of the trip.Miles traveled: 360.79Baseball games: 1Money spent: $116After the Cardinals make mincemeat of the Mets, it’s time to head to Minnesota. No time for sleep on this trip. There will be time for that when you’re dead. At this point, you should be thinking about Dollar Dog Night at the Metrodome, where hot dogs are just a dollar on Wednesdays. This should be the motivation you need to drive through the night on nothing but Combos and Dr Pepper.When you get to the Minneapolis area, call my mom. Her name is Phyllis, and she makes the best french toast ever. She’ll make you some after your nap.Once you’ve recharged, head downtown to the dome, where Dollar Dog Night awaits. Cheap seats at the Metrodome will cost a mere $5 with a student ID — some of the best prices in the Bigs. Make sure to leave the stadium through the open doors and not the revolving doors, as the deflating dome creates a gust of wind that literally pushes you out.After the game, you can find a cheap hotel for less than $60, or you can call Phyllis again. She’s a swell lady, and she’ll be happy to take you in.For some cheap fun the next day, drive around the Minneapolis area looking for the places where scenes from “Little Big League” were filmed. Hint: The fishing bridge is located at Minnehaha Falls. When the scavenger hunt is over, it’s time to head back to Madison for a little break.Miles traveled: 1,190.27Fun had: tons o’Money spent: $181Your next game will be Milwaukee on Friday, where the Brew Crew will tangle with the Cubs. Consider this your spring training for trash talking, where you can practice on the hundreds of Cubs fans who traveled north for the game. Mark Prior and Kerry Wood starting the season on the down low, the Cubs paying more than $100 million for no more than 80 wins, or the fact that Chicagoans don’t seem to work are all good heckling points.Miles traveled: 1,269.35Sour gummy worms consumed: 1,353Money spent: $223If you have a Chicago or Milwaukee friend with you on this trip, drive to his or her house and sleep there. If you go to Chicago, let the Chicago friend drive. This will shave at least half an hour off the trip time, but it will also shave a year or two off your life. Totally worth it.The last game in this whirlwind of emotion and magnet schedule giveaways will take place at U.S. Cellular Field, aka Comiskey Park, home of the Chicago White Sox. Here you’ll get another chance to see the Twins, or “piranhas,” as Ozzie Guillen calls them, in action. This should be the trip’s climax, as these two teams will be competing with Detroit for the AL Central championship this season, and it will be a heated early-season battle. Cheap seats can be had for as little as $8, though the grub will be a little more expensive.Miles traveled: 1,360.5Times your nervous friend tapped the imaginary break: 191Money spent: $300Since this match is a day game, you will be able to drive home in time to enjoy your Saturday night out in Madison. You will have traveled 1,508 miles, spending only approximately $304 along the way, though that is the cheap estimate and assumes four people in the car.You will have seen the defending national champions, experienced baseball in a dome, and talked trash to Chicagoans from both ends of the city. Only a fool would miss out on that.And look on the bright side: At least you won’t have tan lines.Robert Panger is a senior majoring in journalism, and you can read his “Benchwarmer Bob” guest column periodically throughout the semester.

Superlatives from Syracuse’s 73-53 win over Miami

first_img Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on January 24, 2019 at 9:58 pm Contact Charlie: csdistur@syr.edu | @charliedisturcocenter_img Since Syracuse’s upset of then-No. 1 Duke, a once-stagnant offense has broken out. The Orange’s hot shooting continued on Thursday night, as the team shot 49.1 percent from the field and 46.7 percent from beyond the arc. Elijah Hughes’ 22 points and six 3s led the way for Syracuse (14-5, 5-1 Atlantic Coast), which blew out Miami (9-9, 1-5) inside the Carrier Dome, 73-53. The Orange have won three straight and remain tied atop the conference standings.Here are the superlatives from the dominating victory.Big Moment: Paschal Chukwu’s block and Jim Larrañaga’s technicalWith just under 12 minutes remaining in the game, Ebuka Izundu went up with a layup. The ball was swatted away by Paschal Chukwu. UM players pleaded for a goaltending call but didn’t get one. Seconds later, Hurricanes head coach Jim Larrañaga, made his way to the court, screaming and throwing his arms in the air.He was quickly charged with a technical foul by the referee, and Tyus Battle made both free throws on the opposite end. The Orange, already on an 8-2 run, used the technical free throws to push the lead to double digits and pull away.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textStud: Elijah HughesA Miami player corralled a Marek Dolezaj missed shot and threw a lead pass to Zach Johnson running up the court. He caught the ball and rose up against Elijah Hughes, who met him at the rim and blocked the ball. The following possession, — after Hughes nabbed the defensive rebound — Dolezaj found Hughes on the left wing. He nailed it as the Carrier Dome crowd erupted. Head coach Jim Boeheim gave him a slap on the butt.Hughes could not miss on Thursday night, dropping 22 points with six 3s on 66.7 percent shooting from deep. Hughes was extremely active on the defensive end, too, adding three blocks and three steals.Dud: Oshae BrissettOnce again, Oshae Brissett struggled creating offense inside the paint. Drives that gave him open looks came up short. Jumpers rimmed out. Outside of his and-1 finish midway through the first half, Brissett struggled mightily. The sophomore forward finished with just seven points on 25 percent shooting. On a day where Syracuse’s offense had been on fire, Brissett was anything but.Highlight: Tyus Battle’s passingFresh off his third ACC Player of the Week award, Tyus Battle did not score a single point in the first half. While he missed all three shots in that frame, the junior tied a career-high with six assists. He even found Buddy Boeheim for 3 multiple times while manning the point as Frank Howard sat.While Battle found offensive success in the second half — scoring 10 points — his passing stood out and helped create offense for a hot-shooting Syracuse squad. He finished with nine assists. The highest single-game total by any player this season came in just more than 21 minutes.Lowlight: ReboundingIt was expected that Syracuse, the nation’s tallest team, would have no trouble out-rebounding Miami on Thursday. The Hurricanes are the 238th tallest team and have notoriously struggled on the boards. Yet, Miami doubled the Orange in first-half rebounds, grabbing eight on the offensive glass in the process. The Hurricanes finished the game with 39 rebounds to the Orange’s 28. Paschal Chukwu registered double-digit rebounds in back-to-back games but ended with just four rebounds on Thursday night.Early in the first half, Elijah Hughes and Oshae Brissett both blocked a pair of Miami shots into the stands. A long 3 before the shot clock expired came up short, but the Hurricanes grabbed the offensive rebound and scored a 3 seconds later. Second-chance points kept Miami close the entire game, as the Hurricanes outscored the Orange in that department, 19-6.last_img read more

Dodgers on wrong end of shutout in Cincinnati

first_img Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start Things went further awry in the third after leadoff singles by Tucker Barnhart and Nick Senzel. Joey Votto bounced a ground ball to Corey Seager at shortstop but Seager’s throw to second baseman Chris Taylor was wide of the base and sailed into right field.“I know with Votto we have the infield obviously shifted over so it took some time for CT to get over there,” Roberts said. “Softly-hit ball, trying to throw to a guy who’s in motion, trying to get the forceout there. I really couldn’t tell how much of a misfire it was, if it was, or if CT just couldn’t get to the bag.“It was just one of those things that we just didn’t execute.”Buehler was almost out of the jam with no more damage when he got Eugenio Suarez to pop out and struck out Winker. But Yasiel Puig (who struck out in all three at-bats Friday) dropped a full-count single into center field to drive in two runs.Center fielder Alex Verdugo started to charge the softly-hit single but pulled up to play it one the hop instead, throwing too late to get Votto at home.“It looked like it was off the end of the bat, weakly hit,” Verdugo said. “Off the bat, I took a couple hard steps in, running in hard. I felt I had a better play getting it on the bounce and throwing the second runner out. Now seeing what I see, obviously both runners scored, I think I probably would have just gone there and gone for the dive.“Just one of those things, fastball down, end of the bat, big swing but off the end of the bat. I felt like I had the right read, the right jump. … Even if I did dive I think it would have been bang-bang. It would have been one of those with a very low catch percentage on the play.”All three runs in the inning were unearned and Buehler allowed no more over the next three innings, retiring 10 of the 11 batters he faced after Puig’s two-run single.But the Dodgers’ offense never came to life against Mahle or three Reds relievers, spreading out their six hits and not getting a runner past first base after the third inning. CINCINNATI — It defies proper spelling but Cincinnati’s Great American Ball Park leaves the space between ‘Ball’ and ‘Park.’ But it does provide another way for baseballs to leave the yard.Even in this age of home runs, the Reds’ home field annually ranks among baseball’s most accommodating venues. It turned stingy Saturday afternoon, however, as the Dodgers were shut out by right-hander Tyler Mahle and the Reds bullpen in a 4-0 loss.After hitting four home runs Friday night, the Dodgers managed just six hits Saturday, all singles.“Mahle just had our number really. We just couldn’t get anything going,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies “I thought early the fastball — he was running it in on our guys and beating us in. Then I thought we started getting the handle on him. He wasn’t striking his breaking ball. I thought we took some good swings. I thought (Matt) Beaty had some good at-bats today.“Outside of that he just found a way. Not a bunch of punch (five strikeouts in six innings). We just didn’t get a whole lot of good swings off against him.”It was only the 12th time in their first 47 games that the Dodgers didn’t get off any home run swings — but they lost eight of those 12 games (while going 26-9 when they hit at least one home run). It is an unsurprising split in baseball’s powerball era.“The homer — that’s in our mix offensively. It is,” Roberts said. “I do think that getting on base by way of walk and situationally I think we’ve been pretty good this year. But, yeah, you look around the league teams that don’t homer don’t win a lot of games. So I think that definitely applies to us certainly.”The Dodgers have hit 74 home runs this season, second in the National League behind the Milwaukee Brewers. But their pace has slowed considerably from the unsustainable early barrage of 24 in their first 10 games (a franchise record).center_img Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season “It’s hard to go into a game where you say you’re trying to homer,” Roberts said of the losing record without homers. “You understand it, that we’re better when we do homer. We win more games. But our approach, our plan is still our plan and that’s to put the barrel to it, swing at strikes. When we do that, yeah, we do homer. But to go into it trying to homer, I definitely advise against that.”Coming into Saturday’s game, it had been Dodgers pitchers putting up the zeroes. But a 24-inning scoreless streak ended when Jesse Winker hit a solo home run on the ninth pitch of his at-bat against Dodgers starter Walker Buehler in the second inning.“The Winker homer, I take my chances on that pitch really to anybody,” Buehler said of the 2-and-2 fastball. “It was at the top of the zone, kind of my strength.”Related Articles How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco last_img read more
