Post subject: fourth inning to break a scoreless tie. Australia, which was Post Posted: Sat Sep 30, 2017 12:37 am
Arrogate ran California Chrome down in the shadow of the post to grab the spoils in a renewal of the Breeders Cup Classic that truly lived up to its billing as a duel for the ages. Dubai World Cup winner California Chrome set easy fractions in front and Victor Espinoza looked to have matters under control as he went for home.Art Shermans superstar opened up a gap on the Khalid Abdullah-owned Arrogate, but the young pretender would not be denied under Mike Smith, to give trainer Bob Baffert a third Classic victory in a row. Baffert said: I was a bit worried, he was just loping around. I thought Man, I hope I have him fit enough.When Chrome was out there cruising, I thought no way hes going to catch him, hes going to run second, but at least he showed up.Then all of a sudden, Mikes riding and hes catching up little by little with that big stride kicking in. I felt like when Trevor (Denman) says this is un-believe-able. I never thought he would be able to catch Chrome.It takes a lot to get me excited and that was some race.Sherman was gracious in defeat and pointed towards the Pegasus World Cup invitational at Gulfstream Park in January as being the final race of California Chromes career.He said: Im very proud of the way he ran and there are no excuses. What can I say, he ran his eyeballs out.He ran his race, but just got beat in those last couple of jumps.That winner (Arrogate) is the real McCoy. I knew he was the one we had to beat, but I didnt know how good he was.We had no excuses. He broke so darn good that I figured wed be in front early. The fractions were fine.When we were in front turning for home, I thought hed win, because he usually hangs on. Hes been so good all year long, but it just shows that you cant win every race.He will be back for sure.Espinoza said: I am so proud of him, he ran a great race. Maybe in hindsight I should have let him roll a bit earlier. We have had our ups and downs, and I know what its like to be down and then come back.He was cruising, but weve probably met a good horse today.The pair finished a chasm clear of third-home Keen Ice, whose trainer Todd Pletcher bemoaned a lack of pace.The pace didnt really develop quite the way we thought it would, he said.We were hoping theyd mix it up more than they did. I thought he put in a good, long sustained run. He showed some guts and fought hard for third and showed some guts.Javier Castellano, who rode Keen Ice, added: Im very satisfied with the way he ran today. It was a good third place to the best horses in the country. Also See: Live results service Full racecards Get Sky Sports ï¿¡10 completely free bet! Cheap Baltimore Orioles Jerseys .

"Four now," Carl Gunnarsson told the Leaf Report proudly following a 5-2 victory over New York on Tuesday night, the clubs fifth straight at home. SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. -- Make room, David Ortiz. Theres a mini "Big Papi" swinging a big bat for Nashville, Tenn., at the Little League World Series. With the bases loaded and fans chanting "Big Papi! Big Papi!" Trae McLemore hit a 1-1 pitch over the fence in centre to cap Nashvilles 10-2 victory over Corpus Christi, Texas, in an elimination game Saturday. McLemore, who was nicknamed in honour of Ortiz by his parents, finished with two hits and drove in six runs. And he had his mother, Brenda Gonzalez, in tears as he rounded the bases in the top of the sixth. "When I hit that grand slam, it was just energy running through my body," said the 5-foot-11, 209-pound player. "Its been one of my dreams to come and play in this tournament. Another one was to hit a home run. After that, I looked at my mom, and she was crying." Pausing, before breaking into a smile, McLemore added: "And I was like, Oh, thats awesome." Ben Pickman struck out 10 and allowed three hits over five innings for Nashville (1-1), which stayed in contention in the double-elimination tournament. The Southeast champion opened with a 3-2 loss to Westport, Conn., on Thursday. The one scare for Nashville came in the sixth inning when infielder Knox Preston fell awkwardly and hit his head while stumbling awkwardly into first base on a ground out. Preston was examined on the field, and required assistance to get to his dugout. Nashville manager Randy Ramirez said Preston was being tested for a possible concussion. It was two-and-done for Corpus Christi (0-2), which failed to get its offence on track. The Southwest champion will conclude the tournament playing Perth, Australia (0-2), in a consolation game Monday. Perth was eliminated following a 4-0 loss to San Lorenzo, Puerto Rico, earlier in the day. The one bright moment for Corpus Christi was how Jared Cruz responded after giving up the home run to McLemore. Cruz hit a one-out solo homer to centre in the bottom of the sixth to round out the scoring. And it came off McLemore, who relievved Pickman.dddddddddddd "It just shows that these guys didnt give up," manager Randy Ramirez said. "That was a good way to show it, more so for Cruz, because he came back and hit if further." The game began as a pitching duel. Both Pickman and Corpus Christi starter Jesus Ortiz did not give up a through three innings. That changed when Pickman fouled off three consecutive pitches before hitting a single down the first base line. Christopher McElvain followed with a double to right, and McLemore drove both home with a one-out single up the middle to key a three-run inning. Nashville manager Chris Mercado credited Pickmans single for getting his offence going. Once we started hitting the ball, I feel like the other guys feel it, and feel more positive," Mercado said. "I was trying to get them fired up, get them going. And when they did, it was fun." Nashville scored three more in the fifth, and McLemores home run in the sixth rounded out the scoring. He hit the 46th grand slam in series history, and first since Yoshiki Suzuki hit one on Aug. 18, 2011, for Hamamatsu City, Japan. It was the first grand slam by an American player since Andy Rios hit one in 2009 for Chula Vista, Calif. "I call him Pops. Hes just the big daddy," Pickman said. "Everybody loves him. Hes out front, encouraging, loud. He helps fire up the team." PUERTO RICO 4, AUSTRALIA 0 Pitcher Tommylee Sierra shut out Australia for 5 2-3 innings in keeping San Lorenzo in contention in the international bracket of the tournament. Sierra fell one out short of a complete game because he reached the Little League limit of 88 pitches per game when he recorded his 10thstrikeout of the game in the top of the sixth inning. Leonardo Lizardi got the final out for Puerto Rico, which scored three times in the fourth inning to break a scoreless tie. Australia, which was making its first LLWS appearance, was eliminated from title contention. Maverick Hamilton pitched a five-inning complete game for Australia and gave up seven hits.
