Title: the Premier League
Post by: zxlbxj1 on December 15, 2018, 02:42:30 pm
SAN FRANCISCO -- Except for about 30 friends and family in the stands, Sacramento native Vance Worley silenced the announced crowd of 41,794 at AT&T Park with the best performance of his career. Worley tossed a four-hitter for his first shutout, and the Pittsburgh Pirates pounded Madison Bumgarner early in a 5-0 win over the struggling Giants on Monday night. "Just glad I gave them something fun to watch," said Worley, who didnt grow up a Giants fan but heard "a lot of lip" from friends after coming up in the Phillies organization. Worley sure seems to bring his best against San Francisco. Worley (4-1) struck out three and walked one in an efficient 100-pitch outing. His only other complete game came in a 7-2 win over the Giants on July 26, 2011, in Philadelphia. Four players drove in a run off Bumgarner (12-8) in the first, and Josh Harrison hit his seventh homer in the second to provide all of Pittsburghs pop. Worley worked over batters the rest of the way to hand San Francisco its fifth straight loss and 12th shutout this season. The right-hander was acquired from Minnesota on March 25 for a player to be named or cash. He spent time in extended spring training and with Triple-A Indianapolis before being thrust into Pittsburghs rotation because of injuries. Worley has made the most of his opportunities in the majors. He has a 2.54 ERA in eight appearances this season, including seven starts. "He had to fight back. He had to make some adjustments," Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. "Hes been focused. Hes been prepared. Hes not doing anything he hasnt done before. His confidence is playing. The command is whats showing up." Worley didnt allow a baserunner until Pablo Sandoval singled for the first of his two hits. Gregor Blanco hit a swinging bunt single in the sixth before being nabbed trying to steal second. And Hunter Pences two-out triple in the ninth was the only other hit off Worley. The Giants, who were just swept in a three-game home series by the Dodgers to fall out of first place in the NL West, were counting on their All-Star pitcher to help wash away their woes. Instead, Bumgarner gave up five runs and six hits in four innings. He had allowed one run in 14 innings since the All-Star break and was coming off his best start of the season. All that evaporated in a 41-pitch first. He allowed three hits, two walks and committed one of two San Francisco errors in the inning when he misfired to second trying to pickoff Andrew McCutchen. TRAINERS ROOM Pirates: Left fielder Starling Marte can come off the concussion list Wednesday but likely wont resume baseball activities until a few days after that. Giants: First baseman Brandon Belt passed his concussion test, resumed working out and is expected to return early in the teams 10-game road trip that begins Friday at the New York Mets. ... Backup catcher Hector Sanchez failed his concussion test and said he will be out least another three days. ... Center fielder Angel Pagan (back) will go through his pregame workout routine Tuesday in Arizona, and if everything goes well the Giants will set a date for his rehab assignment. ON DECK Pirates: LHP Francisco Liriano (2-7, 4.18 ERA) looks for his second straight victory. Giants: RHP Tim Hudson (8-7, 2.65 ERA) tries to stop his three-game home losing streak. TURN TWO: The Pirates helped Worley out with two double plays, including a spectacular turn by second baseman Neil Walker in the fourth. Walker grabbed shortstop Jordy Mercers glove scoop barehanded while falling, turned and threw to first to get Michael Morse. "I knew I was going to have to bare-hand the ball, but I just didnt know where it was going to be," Walker said. "It was kind of just instinctual." HOME-FIELD DISADVANTAGE After starting the season 22-9 at home, the Giants are 6-20 in San Francisco since and 28-29 overall. "This is kind of where you make your money at," said Bumgarner, who is 4-6 at AT&T Park this season. "Its really weird." Goedkoop Air Max Kopen ( .

The Patriots, who had a bye in Week 10, will look to continue the offensive success they had a week earlier when New England scored 55 points and racked up 610 yards of total offense in a 55-31 drubbing of the Pittsburgh Steelers.Paul Merson believes Leicester winning the Premier League title at Old Trafford would be embarrassing for Manchester United and Louis van Gaal. The Foxes can clinch the title with a victory on Super Sunday, which would leave Manchester Uniteds hopes of finishing in the top four in tatters.Merson has, however, backed Louis van Gaals side to triumph in his predictions, and thinks it will be fitting if Leicesters remarkable story ends with them winning the trophy at home against Everton next week. If youre a Manchester United fan you dont want Leicester winning the Premier League there on Sunday, that would be the last thing you need, Merson told Sky Sports.If youre the manager of Manchester United and that happens youre in severe trouble. Louis van Gaal is under pressure as it is, I know theyre in the FA Cup final, but if this team get beat at home and Leicester win the league in front of 75,000 of their fans? They arent going to be happy with that. The pressure could increase on Louis van Gaal if Leicester win on Sunday They had it a few years ago [in 2001/02] when Arsenal went there and won it, and that was bad. But this would be even worse for them in my opinion.No disrespect, but little Leicester going to big Manchester United and winning the Premier League - its embarrassing Im afraid. I dont think it will happen, though, and I think Manchester United will win this game.  Arsenal won the title at Old Trafford in 2002 I was very impressed with them in the first half of the FA Cup semi-final, and with Wayne Rooney playing a bit deeper theyre a betterr team.dddddddddddde added: The story of Leicester winning it is unreal, but to put the icing on the cake and go and win it at one of the biggest football clubs in the world? Honestly, Ive thrown the book Im reading into the sea because of Leicester. Its been extraordinary, but this would be the ultimate story of all time. It would be unbelievable. Ander Herrera hopes Manchester United can spoil Leicesters title party Whats happening this season is an absolute miracle. If youre reading a book and it says a 5,000/1 shot wins the league, then all of a sudden youre on the last page and you win it at Old Trafford? You cant write that, its impossible.If Im being honest, though, youd like to see them win it at home against Everton. Their fans have been great this year and they deserve it.
