C-NS boys volleyball earns sweep over Liverpool

first_imgFor all the great progress the Liverpool boys volleyball team had already made in 2019, it still was like every other large-school challenger in Central New York in that it was chasing Cicero-North Syracuse.So it was that the Northstars and Warriors had their first head-to-head match last Monday night a Liverpool Middle School, and though Liverpool improved as the night went along, C-NS remained on top.Prevailing in three sets 25-15, 25-17, 25-22, the Northstars saw Brandon Millias earn 23 assists and 10 digs, with Dan Seliger leading the front line as he earned 10 kills. Kevin Felasco had five kills, with Brandon Champion (four kills), Carter Wisely and Grant Sennett (three kills, three blocks) helping, too.

Dodgers’ Kiké Hernandez ready to embrace single-position role

first_imgSince he joined the Dodgers, Hernandez has a .990 fielding percentage in 81 games at second base. The franchise leaders at the position (minimum 300 games) are Jackie Robinson and Mark Grudzielanek at .983.“It allows me to show my full potential because I’m just working at one spot,” Hernandez said. “I can just focus on being as good as I can be at only one position instead of trying to get really good at six, seven different spots.“In another way, it gives me a little bit more comfort at the plate hitting, not having to move around and focus on those two parts that much. I’m excited and happy. I’m also going to try to stay here for a few more years.”Roberts said Hernandez’s biggest area of improvement has been his approach against right-handed pitching. Last year 12 of his 21 home runs came against right-handed pitchers. He previously had nine career home runs against right-handers and 19 against lefties.There’s an echo of Turner’s transformation there too; only a dramatic swing change allowed him to become an everyday player. During his first spring training as a third baseman, Turner said he would miss the variety of playing different positions. Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season “Clayton’s always going to poke holes in something,” Roberts said. “Today would probably be the curveball. But for me, the way the ball was coming out, the depth of his slider, threw some changeups – I was very encouraged.”Kershaw will begin the season on the injured list. There is no precise timetable for his return.“We talked about a few-week kind of plan,” Roberts said.ALSOIn addition to Buehler’s start Sunday, the rest of the season-opening rotation has been set: Hyun-Jin Ryu will pitch against the Diamondbacks on Opening Day (Thursday), followed by Ross Stripling (Friday) and Kenta Maeda (Saturday). Julio Urías will start Monday’s series opener against the San Francisco Giants. … Stetson Allie, Dustin May, Kevin Quackenbush, Josh Thole, Paulo Orlando, Daniel Castro and Ezequiel Carrera were officially reassigned to the Dodgers’ minor league camp. There are officially 28 players on the Dodgers’ spring training roster. … Uniformed personnel will wear a patch in memory of Don Newcombe beginning on Opening Day and throughout the 2019 season. … Newcombe, the 1956 MVP who founded the Dodgers’ community relations department and served as an advisor in his retirement, died Feb. 19 at age 92. Hernandez, however, isn’t nostalgic for his super-utility label.“Maybe I’ll miss playing short,” he said, “but that’s about it.”THE SIMSPitching to teammates for the final time this spring, Walker Buehler impressed in a four-inning simulated game at Angel Stadium. Buehler’s upper-90s fastball was typically overpowering, and the right-hander declared himself ready for his regular-season debut Sunday afternoon against Arizona.Buehler had been delayed early in spring by a dead arm. Now, he said, “we’re right to where I would have been last year.”Clayton Kershaw, who threw a two-inning sim game, could not say the same. The left-hander threw all his pitches, but their spin fell short of midseason form.Related Articles How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire ANAHEIM — It’s easy to forget, but in the two seasons before he became a Dodger, Justin Turner did not spend the majority of his innings in the field at any one position. In his first season in Los Angeles, Turner was a backup at first, second and third base. It wasn’t until Don Mattingly declared him the primary starter at third in 2015 that Turner knew which glove to bring to the field without first checking the lineup card.So it is for Kiké Hernandez in 2019. Last year, he appeared at every position except catcher. Now he’ll only need his second baseman’s glove for the foreseeable future. In a professional career that began in 2009, Hernandez said, “I haven’t really had that.”Manager Dave Roberts recently made the switch, declaring Chris Taylor his super-utility fielder. Hernandez’s bat might have won him the job. He sports a .278 batting average, .344 on-base percentage and .500 slugging percentage in spring training (through Sunday) compared to Taylor’s .185/.254/.370.But Hernandez is also the team’s best fielding second baseman, at least in Roberts’ opinion. His potential impact in the field cannot be overlooked as he transitions to the new role.center_img Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start last_img read more

Purple & Bold: Welcome back, Brandon Ingram

To receive the newsletter in your inbox, sign up here.Lakers Nation is happy for you, Brandon Ingram.Fans are happy for themselves, too, of course: Anthony Davis’ 27.3 points and 9.3 rebounds have helped lift the Lakers to a Western Conference-best 27-7 record.But folks in L.A. also are plenty glad to see B.I. – whose Lakers’ tenure ended with him dangling as trade bait and beset by a stunning diagnosis of deep venous thrombosis in his shoulder – becoming a leader in New Orleans. When the Pelicans faced the Suns earlier this month, Ingram broke into a dead sprint to try to affect what looked like a no-doubt-about-it Kelly Oubre Jr. dunk. Ingram was unsuccessful. He crashed to the floor in a heap.“He was in foul trouble that game,” Josh Hart said. “I was like, ‘Big fella, might wanna let that one go next time. We’d rather have you in there.’ He was like, ‘No. I’ve got to set the tone.’ That’s the kind of leader he is.”Ah, yes.Josh Hart will be back too, as will Lonzo Ball (who produced a 27-point, 10-rebound, 10-assist triple-double last time out in a victory over Houston). Hart is averaging career-highs in points (10.9), rebounds (5.9) and assists (1.5).Maybe that all sits well with you, too, Lakers fans?
