There is no relief this time around for the Blue Jazz Rangers’ sporadic loss.

Toronto – For a while, the Toronto Blue Jays were on their way to a near-perfect weekend. When they took a 6-1 lead in the fourth inning, they looked ready to sweep over the Rangers for the first time since 1996 and start the season 3-0.

But after three effective innings, Hyun-Jin Ryu fought in the fourth, allowing four consecutive injuries, the last of which knocked him off his feet and chased him out of the game. By the end of the innings, six Rangers had scored and Texas was ahead, 7-6. A strong bullpen effort at that moment could have put the game off, but the Blue Jays relivers allowed five more runs in a 12-6 loss, the team’s first of the season.

All told, Ryu was charged for six earned runs in five hits in 3.1 innings – a disappointing debut for a skilled pitcher who struggled to expand in 2021. His fastball averaged 90.1 miles per hour, a slight increase over last year, but the Rangers hitter had no problem squaring his off-speed pitches, hitting four balls at least 100 miles per hour in the fourth inning alone.

On Friday, a strong Bullpen effort helped the Blue Jess out a fair start from Jose Berrios, but Toronto reliever battled with Julian Marioweider, Ross Strippling, David Phelps and Taylor Sosedo on Sunday. If a silver lining is found in the one-sided loss, it is Jordan Romano and Emmy Garcia who took leave after pitching in a drawn game.

In different situations, the story of the game could be Matt Chapman, who made multiple powerful dramas in defense as well as hitting his first home run as a Blue J. In fact, there was an innings for Chapman to make an impact in the game.

On top of the first, Marcus Semien led with a ground ball between the third and short. Chapman swings to his left, slams and throws the target at the first base for many third basemen that cannot be recorded. Just minutes later, Chapman also announced his offensive presence. With two runners on and two outs under the first one, he set foot on a fastball with a speed of 97 miles per hour and sent it to the center field at 432 feet for his first injury as a Blue J, a three-run home run.

With these two dramas, Blue Jays witnessed the full potential of Chapman, who has been under contract with Blue Jays for two seasons. A three-time Gold Glove winner, he brings elite defensive skills to a position that attracts lots of ground ball – especially when Rue is pitching. And although his offensive numbers have dwindled in the last year, he is expected to continue to tap into the power that allowed him to hit 36 ​​home runs once in Oakland.

Four Blue Jays Sunday Homed, including Chapman. George Springer led the game with a single shot, Danny Janssen hit his second of the season in the second inning and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. hit a career-high 467-feet in the third inning. The Blue Jays have now scored seven home runs and 20 runs in three games. As expected, this team could clash with anyone.

Before the game, Blue Jess officially promoted fast outfielder Bradley Zimmer while utility player Gosuke replaced Katoh with Triple-A to make room on the roster. After a weekend where the Blue Jays used their bullpen extensively, more rosters may need to be run by Monday.

From here, the Blue Jays fly to New York, where they will play four games against the Yankees. This will be a significant test – and to pass it will require more consistent starting pitching than they have achieved so far.

Meralco mercilessly bottled up the enemy on Sunday night and the Bolts picked up the incredible match against Barangay Geneva to turn the tide of the PBA Governors Cup title series back in their favor.

Eight points behind in the half, Meralco Defense led Jean Kings to an 83-74 victory at 26-point output and a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven final. Which has stunned hugely pro-Geneva fans who have flocked to the Mall of Asia Arena with over 16,000.

And then the Bolts fired on virtually all cylinders in the final two frames, which led Tony Bishop Jr. and Chris Newsom to lead the way because Meralco would not only pull the nose but also take it in the race-two-four. The series is heading towards a positive feeling when the series returns to the Cave Smart Araneta Coliseum in Cuba, Queens City on Wednesday.

“I sometimes sound like a broken record, but both teams have played really good defense tonight. You can tell by the score, “said Meralco coach Norman Black.” It was very difficult to score there, so it’s just a matter of getting some stops and trying to hold on as long as we can. “

Bishop, who beat Geneva’s opponent Justin Brownlee in the Best Import race, finished with 30 points and 16 rebounds and collected Newsome 20 and 11 with six assists to complete a deadly 1-2 attack that the Kings never had an answer to. The last two quarters

“Although we had some good offensive performances,” Black added.

The defense, however, still proved to be the biggest story of the contest as Cliff Hodge anchored a non-nonsense stand that was highlighted in two sequences on the minute of death when he stabbed a Christian standhardinger short and then made an offensive foul. The next play is the Geneva Center which took the wind out of the joint flock of kings.

Brownlee went on to lead the Kings with 19 points but was forced by Hodge to a 10-for-1 clip from the three-point range, which was converted by 13 shots from 99-93 Game 2 wins. 4 out of 32 to underscore how it struggled.

Allen Maliksey, who was scoreless in Game 2, hit seven of his 10 points in the fourth period for the Bolts, who are looking to win a title series for the first time in four encounters with the Kings for the franchise’s first PBA crown.

No one was needed to remind Black that this lead was reminiscent of the two clubs’ first meeting in 2016. At that point, the Kings won the next three games on their way to the title.

“I just live in the present — which we are 2-1 above, and we will be back this Wednesday. We have a few days to get our feet fresh, and so do they (Jean Kings), ”he said. INQ

The Chiefs snap a three-game slide in hopes of getting fans to play

Since injuring his right knee in the opener, Arelano Slotman has played a bracket in every single game for Justin Arana.

But against Mapuya on Sunday, Basudera forgot to pack it in his bag on his way to the Greenhills at Camarines Norte, 6-foot-7, La Salle.

“It was already ready with my luggage but I forgot to bring it,” said Arana in Filipino. “Sure, I’ll never hear the end of it from my managers.”

Maybe not. Because with the situation, Arna, who feared to tear up his ACL in that game, doesn’t seem to need to wear the contraption the way he did.

Rilling Cardinal

“I am just happy to be here because we have come from three different rates. We have worked really hard for this. We know Mapua is a physical team, “said Arna, who had three blocks and three assists.

Jordan Sta. Anna and Art Oliva helped him with 15 and 10 points, respectively, as the Chiefs improved to 2-3.

“Our coaches have reminded us that we can’t go down, we have no way to go up,” Arna added. “It’s good that my teammates have moved on and we’ve been able to put into practice what we’ve done in practice.”

The Cardinals, whose start was 3-0, moved on from Adrian Nokam jumper four minutes into the 62-60.

That’s when Sta. Anna and Arna pressed for six unanswered points as the win kept the Chiefs’ hopes of making it to the play-offs from the top six teams out of the singles round. INQ

Rating of the contestants: four star Arabic Richard Young

Texas A&M, Georgia, Ohio State, Alabama, Oklahoma, Oregon and Florida staff, one of the best in the country on Sunday, dropped its over 50 offers to seven, leaving additional springs step by step. The Seven to Land race is now underway between 2023 four-star Lehigh Acres (Fla.) Tailback Richard Young.

Each team in the country will feature Richard Young in their list. Fighting against 7A Florida teams for Lehigh High School, Young was that bullish power back, covering 196 to 1,755 yards and scoring 19 quicks in just 10 games. But based on the scheme, the players who are currently on the collegiate roster and chatting along the recruitment route, have been given space to compete for Richard Young’s verbal promise.

1. Florida

The Gators have made a fantastic comeback from Louisiana in 2022 out of class in Trevor Etienne. Combining Young’s skills with Etienne’s will give the Gators a truly dynamic pairing. Under new head coach Billy Napier, enthusiasm for Florida is on the fever pitch. The Gators under Napier have so far focused on details and cultural changes that are noticeable not only for employers, but also for parents and former players. Young has visited Gainesville four times since last summer, twice with new staff. Florida is the only in-state team on its list.

2. Georgia

The long list of standout tailbacks outside Athens speaks for itself. Georgia has a running back tradition that rarely matches. Carrying the weight of winning a national championship in 2021. While no one has been able to climb to the top of the 1,000-yard rushing mark, Georgia carries between split land White (856) and James Cook (728) which keeps them fresh for a terrible push in the post-season. With Kirby Smart and the company getting young on campus at the end of March, Georgia’s interest is real. It’s hard to shake the memory of Yankee wearing a Georgia Bulldogs shirt at the FBU Freshman All-American Game in his hometown.

3. Alabama

Any employer who chooses to sign with Crimson Tide knows what to expect; Bama is a winning program that will always be in discussion with head coach Nick Saban for the national championship. From a tailback perspective, Alabama builds and develops NFL talent. Brian Robinson is set to make his mark on the next level from the latest 1,000-yard race Tuscaloosa. Jamarian Miller of Texas, the tide in 2022 only took one back. The timing of the opening game and playing for the competitors keeps Alabama in the spotlight.

4. Ohio State

There is an underground movement among the top players in Florida that could make the Buckeyes a big winner in this recruitment cycle. Ohio State landed three four-stars in 2022 class outside of Florida, defensive back Ryan Turner and Kyrie Stokes and defensive end Kenyatta Jackson. Athlete Cedric Hawkins is already verbally attached to the 2023 class. Three to four more Sunshine State talents chatting behind the scenes are already leaning towards Columbus. Mark Fletcher’s four-star return to American Heritage on Tuesday could influence Young’s decision.

5. Texas A&M

The Aggies had an eye-opener running late to close class 2022, pushing past both Georgia and Alabama. Texas A&M have been losing many key players in their 8-4 team since last season but there is plenty of talent in the ranks of underclassmen to fill the roster. The 2021 bike included four-star running backs Amari Daniels and LJ Johnson, and Le’Veon Moss was a November addition to the 2022 class. This backfield is deep and talented, what does that mean for 2023 and 2024 prospects, who want to get on the field early?

6. Oklahoma

While Norman’s new coaching staff feels like a complete reset, the Suners’ offense should remain explosive under offensive coordinator Jeff Leby. Levy, an OU graduate, has made a name for himself at UCF as an offensive coordinator and has backed his rise as one of the game’s best last seasons at Ole Miss. In 2021 the rebels made the eighth best crime in the country. The shadow of caffeine in Oklahoma coming out of Levi’s Lane will help indicate how strong the goldsmiths in the 2023 class could be in the early stages of this crime.

7. Oregon

This fall in Oregon, Dan Lanning’s meteoric rise will be under the proverbial microscope. The Ducks transformed their entire four-year run from Mario Cristobal into Lanning, changing from an offensive-minded leader to a defensive-minded one. Former Florida State offensive coordinator Kenny Dillingham (2020-21) has been replaced by Joe Moorehead. Could the old Florida relationship help bring Dillingham and Lanning out of South Florida? Oregon is a top program, but distance is a factor that takes players from all over the country. Coach Cristobal pulled seven out of the reach of the Pack-12 in 2021; Can Lanning have the same effect?

“It has never been easier to deal with the emotional turmoil we are facing,” Ronaldo said.

In a post on Instagram on Saturday, Ronaldo added: “I want to apologize for my anger and, if possible, invite this supporter to watch a game at Old Trafford as a fair play and a sign of the stadium.”
