Wellington boys get first win; girls lose first game

first_img———In the girls game, Wellington improved to 3-0 with another big performance by Ryleigh Buck at the plate, who was 2-of-3 at the plate in game one and getting a home run in game two. Wellington opened the very active offensive day, with Buck and Brooke McCorkle scoring on a Madi Lewellen single. Wellington scored four runs in the fifth when Abby Goodrum singled Baylee DeJarnett home. Abby Goodrum and Madi Adams also scored.Wellington had 11 hits to Mulvane’s 10. The Wildcats committed one error, while Wellington made none.Lewellen picked up her third win of the season from the pitching circle, allowing two runs, 10 hits, and two walks. She had no strike outs.In the second game, Mulvane hitters made Wellington pay dearly in the top of the first, scoring 11 runs against freshman hurler Brooke McCorkle.Wellington, though, would chew down the lead that started in the third when R. Buck hit her third homer of the season to make it 11-4. After a Wildcat run in the bottom of the third, Wellington scored two runs in the top of the fourth. Then Avery Rusk smashed a 3RBI home run in the fifth. A Jacelyn Buck double and a Goodrum triple gave Wellington four more runs in the top of the sixth, and the Lady Dukes were temporarily in front 14-12.However, Mulvane took advantage to two errors to start the sixth and would eventually score six runs to take back the lead and take a four-run lead into the final inning. The Crusaders could score just one run in the top of the seventh, falling to their first defeat of the season.Mulvane would get an eye-popping 21 hits in the game on pitchers McCorkle and Erin Goodrum, while striking out twice. Wellington, which has been so proficient defensively,Wellington had 13 hits in game two including three doubles, one triple, and two home runs. The Crusaders travel Monday to El Dorado.Game 1: Wellington 7 Mulvane 2WHS  0 0 2 1 4 0 0     7 11 0MHS  0 0 2 0 0 0 0     2 10 1WP Lewellen 7I 10H 2R 2ER 0K 2BBLP WilsonRusk 1/4 1R 1BB 1SBE Goodrum 2/4 2RBI 1HBPR Buck 2/3 1R 1RBI 1BB 1HBP 2SBMcCorkle 0/3 1R 1RBI 2BBJ Buck 1/4Lewellen 1/4 2RBIB DeJarnett 2/4 1R 1SBA Goodrum 1/3 2R 1RBI 1BB 1ROEAdams 1/4 1RGame 2: Mulvane 18 Wellington 15WHS  2 0 2 2 4 4 1     15 13 7MHS  11 0 1 0 0 6 X.  18 21 3LP McCorkle 1/3I 10H 11R 10ER 1K 1HBP     A Goodrum 5 2/3I 11H 7R 1ER 2KWP Egan SV WilsonRusk 1/4 2R 4RBI 1HR 1ROEE Goodrum 2/3 2R 1BB 1HBPR Buck 2/3 3R 4RBI 1BB 1HR 2SBMcCorkle 1/1 2RBIAdams 2/4 1R 1RBIJ Buck 1/5 1R 1RBI 1DBLB DeJarnett 1/4 1BB 1DBLA Goodrum 1/5 2R 1RBI 1TRIPLEZimmerman 2/3 3R 1RBI 1BB 1DBL 1ROEOathout 0/3 1R 1BB 1ROEFollow us on Twitter. by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — The varsity Wellington baseball won its first game of the season while the Wellington girls softball team lost its first game of the season in Mulvnae.On Thursday afternoon, Wellington baseball coach Jeff Frazee earned his first victory as the head Crusader coach beating Mulvane 4-1 in the nightcap of the doubleheader. Wellington lost the earlier game, 5-4.On the girls side, Wellington defeated Mulvane 7-2 in game one, but lost the second 18-15.Wellington girls are now 3-1 in the regular season. The boys are 1-3.For the boys, it proved to be an interesting afternoon in which the Crusaders fell behind Mulvane 5-0 before rallying with four runs in the top of the seventh that came up just one run short.That set up game two in which Wellington scored two runs in the top of the first and would never relinquish the lead thereafter.Sophomore Cade Phelps earned the victory pitching all seven innings and allowing just two hits, two walks while striking out four. Wellington’s defense committed just one error, a big improvement from the season opener.On the offensive side, Wellington ripped off eight hits, including RBI singles by Therin Frame and Connor Burnett. Wellington stroked four doubles from Frame, Wesley Gilmore, Ca. Phelps, and Connor Phelps. Gilmore was very proficient getting on base in game two with a .667 OBP.In game one, Wellington gave up five runs in the early stages of the contest, and went into the seventh inning down 5-0.But Wellington’s offense roared to life when Gilmore chucked an RBI single which was followed by a Ca. Phelps RBI.Wellington had nine hits in 29 at bats with Cameron Bartelson, Ca. Phelps, Burnett and Jared Shields each getting doubles. Burnett led the team with a .750 on base percentage.The Crusaders return home Monday to host Collegiate. The 1995 State Championship Baseball team will be honored between games (more on that later).

NHL trade deadline 2020: Top candidates to be moved, by position

first_imgThe NHL’s Feb. 24 trade deadline is less than a week away, but there’s already recent significant activity in the trade market.On Monday, the Los Angeles Kings sent winger Tyler Toffoli to the Vancouver Canucks. The day before, the New Jersey Devils shipped Andy Greene to the New York Islanders and forward Blake Coleman to the Tampa Bay Lightning. Last week, the Minnesota Wild traded Jason Zucker to the Pittsburgh Penguins. Goaltender Ryan Miller, Anaheim DucksIt’s a thin market for goalies heading toward the trade deadline. For clubs seeking an experienced backup, Miller could be the best bet.While he’s years removed from his Vezina Trophy heights of a decade ago, the 39-year-old Miller has plenty of playoff experience. If he willing to waive his modified no-trade for one last shot at the Stanley Cup, he could provide worthwhile goaltending depth for a contender.Honorable mention: Craig Anderson (Ottawa Senators), Aaron Dell (San Jose Sharks), Alexandar Georgiev (New York Rangers). We recently listed the 10 players most likely to be moved by the trade deadline.NHL TRADE TRACKER: Deals completed ahead of the deadlineHere’s a look at the best trade candidates by position:Left wingChris Kreider, New York RangersA fast, physical winger, the 6-3, 217-pound Kreider also possesses good offensive skills. With 23 goals and 42 points, he could finish this season with 30 goals and 60 points.Kreider’s attributes make him very attractive to playoff contenders. He’s been linked to the Boston Bruins, Colorado Avalanche and St. Louis Blues. The New York Post’s Larry Brooks suggested the Rangers send him to the Columbus Blue Jackets for winger Josh Anderson.Honorable mention: Andreas Athanasiou (Detroit Red Wings), Mikael Granlund (Nashville Predators), Ilya Kovalchuk (Montreal Canadiens).CenterJean-Gabriel Pageau, Ottawa SenatorsWith 24 goals and 40 points, the 27-year-old Pageau is the Senators’ leading scorer. A versatile two-way forward who can play center or on the wing, he’s on track for a career-best 30 goals and 50 points.Pageau’s also a proven playoff performer, with 12 goals in 35 post-season contests. The Edmonton Oilers and New York Islanders could covet his all-around skills.Honorable mention: Derek Grant (Anaheim Ducks), Joe Thornton (San Jose Sharks), Vincent Trocheck (Florida Panthers).Right wing Mike Hoffman, Florida PanthersA reliable offensive winger, the 30-year-old Hoffman has exceeded 20 goals and 40 points for the sixth consecutive season. He’s also among the Panthers’ leading scorers.Slated for UFA eligibility this summer, there’s talk he could be swapped for a top-four defenseman. He carries an annual salary-cap hit of $5.187 million. Contenders with salary-cap space seeking scoring punch – the Avalanche, Blue Jackets, and Dallas Stars – could come calling.Honorable mention: Kasperi Kapanen (Toronto Maple Leafs), Ondrej Kase (Anaheim Ducks), Kyle Palmieri (New Jersey Devils).Left defense Alec Martinez, Los Angeles KingsWinner of two Stanley Cups with the Kings, Martinez is a skilled defenseman who plays well at both ends of the rink. He has a year left on his contract with an affordable $4 million salary-cap hit and lacks no-trade protection.Martinez will be enticing for teams in need of blue line help. It’s believed the Florida Panthers and Winnipeg Jets could be among the suitors.Honorable mention: Jonas Brodin (Minnesota Wild), Ron Hainsey (Ottawa Senators).Right defenseMatt Dumba, Minnesota WildThe Wild’s trade of Jason Zucker to Pittsburgh is fueling speculation that more moves are in store if they don’t gain ground in the playoff race. Dumba, 25, has frequently surfaced in recent media trade chatter.A talented puck-moving blueliner, he’s struggled to regain his form since suffering a season-ending pectoral injury in 2018-19.Dumba has three seasons left on his contract with an annual average value of $6 million. A club with cap space seeking long-term defensive help could pursue him before the deadline. Honorable mention: Sami Vatanen (New Jersey Devils).last_img read more

Deontay Wilder officially demands a trilogy fight with Tyson Fury

first_imgThe contest was ruled a majority draw, with scores of 113-113 115-111 and 112-114.Since then, Wilder scored a highlight reel knockout win over Dominic Breazeale in May before stopping Luis Ortiz in November with one of the most powerful punches in recent memory. In that same time span, Fury scored a TKO win over Tom Schwarz before overcoming a huge cut to outpoint Otto Wallin in September. Deontay Wilder has demanded an immediate rematch with Tyson Fury after falling to a seventh round knockout loss to the Gypsy King just over a week ago. Wilder had 25 days to notify Top Rank and Fury that he would demand a rematch, a right included as a clause in their fight contract. He only needed seven, with the confirmation coming via ESPN on Sunday.  Top Rank boss Bob Arum told ESPN the bout will likely take place on July 18 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The rematch clause stipulated Los Angeles, New York or Vegas must host the rematch. Fury won the WBC heavyweight title from Wilder in a one-sided performance in their rematch in February. Wilder was knocked down twice – and hit the canvas another two times due to slips – before his cornerman Mark Breland threw in the towel in the seventh round. The American was furious with the stoppage, wanting to go out on his shield. After initially sacking Breland, Wilder posted a video to social media saying the trainer will remain on the team. The bout was a rematch of their hugely controversial 2018 draw, held in LA.Fury outboxed Wilder and looked set for a big upset before being dropped twice late in the fight. last_img read more

Five things you didn’t know about Wilt Chamberlain’s 100-point game

first_imgMORE: Classic photos of Wilt Chamberlain, an unstoppable giantAside from the fact that Chamberlain hit triple-digits, what do you really know about the game? Let’s go back 58 years to learn more about Chamberlain’s iconic performance.1. Wilt Chamberlain’s stat line was insane, even beyond the 100 points. Chamberlain finished with 100 points on 36-of-63 shooting from the field (57.1 percent) and 28-of-32 shooting from the free throw line (87.5 percent). Keep in mind Chamberlain shot 51.1 percent from the line for his career, so hitting nearly 90 percent of his free throws in one game is some kind of anomaly. Miss only one extra free throw, and he’s stuck on 99. (Not impressive at all!)Along with all of the buckets, Chamberlain also grabbed 25 rebounds and found time to dish out two assists. The NBA did not record blocks until the 1973-74 season, so it’s likely he also had a few of those. Heck, Chamberlain might have posted a 100-point triple-double. 2. This was the perfect matchup for Wilt Chamberlain to score 100 points.All the pieces fell perfectly into place. The Knicks finished as the worst team in the Eastern Division that year, and they didn’t have their full frontcourt to challenge Chamberlain in the paint. New York’s starting center, Phil Jordon, was out with the flu, though it may have been something else keeping him on the sidelines.”The inside scoop was he was hungover,” said Darrall Imhoff (via the Los Angeles Times), the man who took Jordon’s spot in the starting lineup. Imhoff struggled with foul trouble throughout the game, leaving 6-9 rookie Cleveland Buckner to battle Chamberlain, and as everyone now knows, that didn’t go well.But hey, let’s at least give Buckner credit for scoring 33 points of his own. He just happened to come up 67 points short of his opponent.3. The Warriors started force-feeding Wilt Chamberlain once they realized 100 points was possible.Chamberlain scored 41 points in the first half, not all that surprising considering he averaged 50.4 points per game over the entire season. Chamberlain routinely went off for 50 or 60 points throughout his career, but this one felt different, especially when the crowd got behind the chase for 100.Via NBA.com:He scored 23 points in the first quarter and had 41 by halftime, then tallied 28 in the third quarter, when the fans began to chant, “Give It To Wilt! Give It To Wilt!”That’s exactly what the Warriors did, feeding Chamberlain at every opportunity in the fourth quarter. The Knicks tried fouling other Philadelphia players to keep the ball away from Chamberlain, but the Warriors countered by committing fouls of their own to get the ball back.Chamberlain took a pass from Warriors guard Joe Ruklick, who played only eight minutes off the bench, and scored his final two points with 46 seconds left to the delight of the fans in attendance. (And you guys complain about Russell Westbrook chasing triple-doubles.)4. The 100-point game was played in Hershey, Pa., not Philadelphia or New York. The Warriors were playing a “home” game, but the team had to travel to Hersheypark Arena. Uh, what?Back in those days, the NBA was working to gain a larger audience, and without the benefit of a massive TV deal, teams had to reach the fans directly. Neutral site games were not all that uncommon, but the schedule did present a challenge for players.”There were no hotels for us to go to or stay in because we didn’t do those kinds of things in those days,” Chamberlain said. “We went straight to the arena where we had to wait around for five or six hours for the game. But it happened to be in this arena they had a shooting gallery, old penny arcade, so some of the guys went there, and I started shooting rifles and so forth.”And I couldn’t miss anything. So if there was ever a clue that I was going to have a hot day, this was definitely the clue.”5. The only thing more absurd than Wilt Chamberlain’s 100-point game was his stat line for the entire 1961-62 season. Seriously, just take a moment and think about this: 50.4 points and 25.7 rebounds per game on 50.6 percent shooting from the field and 61.3 percent from the line (a career high, by the way). Chamberlain attempted nearly 40 field goals and shot 17 free throws per game. But that’s not the best part. Chamberlain averaged 48.5 minutes per game. If you’re scratching your head now, yes, NBA games are only 48 minutes long. However, the Warriors also played 10 overtime periods that season, and Chamberlain logged 3,882 of a possible 3,890 minutes.It’s safe to say we won’t see any NBA players eclipsing those season numbers or the famous 100-point total any time soon. Hall of Famer Wilt Chamberlain didn’t have the ability to use the “100” emoji on March 2, 1962, so he had to settle for a simple piece of paper to illustrate his level of dominance that night.”The Big Dipper” dropped 100 points in 48 minutes of work as the Philadelphia Warriors defeated the New York Knicks, 169-147. In leading the Warriors to victory, Chamberlain broke his own single-game scoring record of 78 points set on Dec. 8, 1961, against the Los Angeles Lakers, a game that included multiple overtime periods. Only one player has even eclipsed the 80-point threshold since Chamberlain’s historic night — the late Kobe Bryant poured in 81 against the Raptors on Jan. 22, 2006.last_img read more

‘Modern Warfare’ tracer rounds: How to get the guns included in purple pack

first_imgMORE: Map details for “Modern Warfare” season 4Here’s what to know about the new tracer rounds:How to get purple tracer rounds in ‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’Scroll to the store section of the multiplayer or “Warzone” menu (either works), and “Tracer Pack: Purple” should be the first option in the featured section. It costs 1,600 CP to buy the bundle. It comes with two gun blueprints in which you can equip purple arounds, as well as a knife called “Stinging Nettle.” There is also a charm of an angry crab — aka “Stabby Crabby — and a calling card of a woman with a thought bubble reading “Da F—!?”Can you get purple tracer rounds for free?Nope, unfortunately the only way for players to obtain purple tracer rounds is through the COD store, though it is possible you’ll run across the blueprint on the ground in a multiplayer match. Which guns use purple tracer rounds?There is one assault rifle blueprint and one submachine gun blueprint in the bundle. The assault rifle with purple tracer rounds is the GRAU 5.56, while the submachine gun is the MP7. Both guns are popular enough that you can expect to see plenty of purple in the coming weeks.There is no way at this point to equip purple tracer rounds on guns besides the GRAU and MP7.Do colored rounds provide a competitive advantage?Not unless you’re a big believer in mental advantages. The colored rounds are meant to be cosmetic, but there’s something quite satisfying about leaving a small crowd of purple above a fallen enemy that perhaps provides a little emotional boost for players. As they say: look good, feel good. If you’ve noticed bright purple emanating from bodies in “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare” recently, it hasn’t been a hallucination.The game introduced a bundle called “Tracer Pack: Purple” for multiplayer this week that colors gun rounds purple when shot from a specific blueprint. This is the latest in a series of limited time colored round releases during “Modern Warfare.”last_img read more

Kirk Herbstreit and Chris Fowler could call NFL ‘Monday Night Football’ games this fall

first_imgESPN’s No. 1 college football broadcast duo at least temporarily could become the network’s “Monday Night Football” broadcast duo in 2020.If this year’s college football season is delayed or canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic, ESPN “will likely turn to” play-by-play announcer Chris Fowler and analyst Kirk Herbstreit for its NFL broadcasts, according to Front Office Sports’ Michael McCarthy. ESPN’s “MNF” booth is currently vacant, as the network is moving on from the broadcast duo of Joe Tessitore and Booger McFarland. After trying but failing to land big names like Al Michaels, Tony Romo, Peyton Manning and Drew Brees for its Monday night booth, ESPN is expected to hire a new duo from its pool of current broadcasters. McCarthy listed Louis Riddick, Dan Orlovsky, Pat McAfee, Steve Levy, Dave Pasch and Brian Griese as candidates.But that hiring process reportedly is on hold while ESPN awaits word on the status of the college football season.MORE: Trey Wingo, Wendi Nix are in limbo at ESPN”It all hinges on when and if college football comes back,” a source told McCarthy. “If Herbstreit and Fowler are ESPN’s best football booth, and a lot of execs at ESPN believe they are, why not have them call Monday night? They call the College Football Playoff national championship game every year.”Front Office Sports also noted Fox is approaching the season the same way with its currently vacant No. 2 NFL analyst job after Charles Davis left for CBS. The network’s top college football game analyst, Joel Klatt, likely would join announcer Kevin Burkhardt on Fox’s No. 2 NFL broadcast team with Joe Buck and Troy Aikman remaining the No. 1 duo.The NFL is proceeding as though its 2020 season can and will play out on schedule, with the season-opener scheduled for Sept. 10 and training camps — all teams must hold camps at their own team facilities this year — beginning in mid-July. The league reportedly is considering a condensed preseason with two games per team rather than four.There is more doubt surrounding the college football season in part because it involves so many more parties (the NCAA, conferences, schools, players) that need to be on the same page in terms of the preservation of health and safety for all. The Division I council is expected to vote Wednesday on a plan that would let the season start on time. MORE: Ranking ESPN’s internal options for “MNF”ESPN’s current broadcast deal with the NFL — which is set to expire in 2021, a year before the expiration of the league’s deals with NBC, CBS and Fox — is bad. ESPN reportedly pays more than $1 billion per year for the right to broadcast “Monday Night Football” games, for which the quality in scheduling has slipped, without being part of the Super Bowl broadcast rotation. NBC, on the other hand, reportedly pays just $950 million for the rights to “Sunday Night Football” games, which has become the league’s premier prime-time package, and its place in the Super Bowl rotation.ESPN will try to get a better deal in this round of negotiations, which is why it has been trying so hard to land an intriguing broadcast duo.last_img read more
