first_imgNEW YORK — The old guard took care of this one for the Phillies — with both their bats and their brains.Ryan Howard had four hits, including a tiebreaking single in the ninth inning, and Jimmy Rollins homered and scored four times to lead Philadelphia past the slumping New York Mets 5-4 on May 10.Chase Utley drove in two runs for the Phillies, who have won the first two games of the series against their NL East foes after dropping four straight to Toronto.Rollins, Utley and Howard, the All-Star core of Phillies teams that won five straight division titles and a World Series championship from 2007-11, combined to go 9-for-12 with four RBIs.“Yeah, it felt good. It felt like old times out there,” Howard said. “If we can get everybody going all at the same time, it’ll be a force to be reckoned with.”David Wright hit his first home run since opening day, ending the longest drought of his career, and had three RBIs. But the Mets wasted another great chance to score in the late innings, losing their season-worst fifth straight and eighth in nine games.Following some confusion in the eighth, Philadelphia reliever Mike Adams (2-1) escaped a major jam by retiring pinch-hitter Bobby Abreu on a bases-loaded comebacker to keep it tied.“Obviously, I had to make him swing the bat,” Adams said. “I threw a two-seamer that ran down and made him hit my pitch.”With runners on second and third earlier in the inning, the Phillies held a meeting at the mound and threw an intentional ball to Eric Campbell in his second major league plate appearance.That’s when Utley and catcher Carlos Ruiz noticed the 40-year-old Abreu, cut by Philadelphia near the end of spring training, getting ready in the dugout.Utley and Ruiz persuaded Adams to go after Campbell before Abreu had a chance to bat. “We decided to change our minds,” Utley said. “We saw him coming up there. We try to see everything, but we don’t always.”Adams said the chat pumped him up, and Utley is “always on top of it.” The intentional walk was called off and Campbell eventually took strike three.“That was pretty neat to watch,” Phillies Manager Ryne Sandberg said.Rollins drew a two-out walk from Kyle Farnsworth (0-3) in the ninth and went to third on Utley’s single. Howard followed with a line-drive single to center.Jonathan Papelbon worked a hitless ninth for his 11th save in 12 chances. With a runner on second, he retired Wright on a foul popup to end it.A frustrated Wright held his bat above his head most of the way back to the dugout, then lingered on an otherwise empty bench for a few minutes with the lumber still in his hand.“The frustrating part is losing,” Wright said. “An inning here, an inning there is costing us multiple games over the last few weeks.”After the start was delayed 39 minutes by rain, the Phillies wasted no time jumping on Dillon Gee, who had a 7.46 ERA in nine previous starts against them.Philadelphia began the game with consecutive singles and a stolen base before Utley’s sacrifice fly ended Gee’s career-best scoreless streak at 16 innings. Domonic Brown blooped an RBI single, but Gee dodged additional damage when Cody Asche lined out with the bases loaded.Wright tied it with a two-run shot on an 0-2 pitch from Kyle Kendrick, snapping a streak of 136 at-bats without a homer since March 31 against Washington.“I don’t build my game around hitting home runs, so it wasn’t too much of a monkey at all,” Wright said.Rollins homered off the facing of the second deck in right to put Philadelphia ahead 3-2 in the second.Kendrick retired 14 of 15 batters after Wright’s long ball and took a two-hitter into the sixth, when he walked leadoff man Juan Lagares. Daniel Murphy singled and Wright plopped an RBI double into right field, just beyond a diving Marlon Byrd.Campbell, with his parents taking pictures in the stands, was sent up to pinch-hit for his big league debut. He gave the Mets a 4-3 lead with a bases-loaded sacrifice fly against lefty reliever Jake Diekman — and was all smiles while receiving a high-five from Murphy and congratulations in the dugout.“It was a real up and down day,” Campbell said. Rollins legged out an infield single in the seventh and advanced on Scott Rice’s wild pitch. Utley doubled off the center-field fence to tie it at 4.(MIKE FITZPATRICK, AP Sports Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more


first_imgPakistan produced a clinical performance barring a couple of dropped catches and survived a late charge by Glenn Maxwell to defeat Australia by 11 runs in the second Twenty20 International on Friday in Dubai to win the three-match series with a match to spare.With the win, Pakistan registered their 10th successive T20I series victory under Sarfraz Ahmed, a run that began with a 1-0 win over England in 2016. The final match of the series will also be played in Dubai on October 28.Maxwell was dropped twice and scored 52 off 37 balls while Nathan Coulter-Nile scored a fighting 27 but it all came a bit too late as Pakistan held on and restricted Australia to 136/8.Earlier, opening batsman Babar Azam once again top scored with 45 and together with Mohammad Hafeez (40), anchored Pakistan to 147-6 after captain Sarfraz Ahmed won the toss and opted to bat.Pakistan’s bowlers do it again!Glenn Maxwell’s 37-ball 52 goes in vain as a tight bowling performance hands Pakistan an 11-run win in Dubai and an unassailable 2-0 series lead! #PAKvAUS scorecard https://t.co/GMoXSkZ6T2 pic.twitter.com/Yq6ZdOpqKVICC (@ICC) October 26, 2018″It’s not easy to get 10 out 10 in Twenty20, but credit goes to the boys, the way we have improved our bowling, batting and fielding,” Pakistan captain Ahmed said.”It’s a big win and now we will try to give the boys sitting on the bench a chance in the last match.”Australia top order batsmen once again choked against the left-arm spin of Imad Wasim (1-8) and legspinner Shadab Khan (2-30) before Maxwell and Coulter-Nile made a late recovery.advertisementWasim, who grabbed three wickets in the first match which Australia lost heavily by 66 runs on Wednesday, picked the wicket of dangerman Chris Lynn.Two in a row!For his another fantastic spell of bowling, @simadwasim is the Player of the Match.#PAKvAUS pic.twitter.com/6yBgtXeWffPCB Official (@TheRealPCB) October 26, 2018D’Arcy Short was run-out after the ball brushed the fingers of Wasim and crashed onto the stumps at the non striker’s end.Finch’s (3) struggle continued against Wasim before he holed out in the deep in Shadab’s first over while attempting a desperate big shot. Shadab also accounted for Mitchell Marsh’s wicket.”We were probably just a bit tentative in the powerplay,” Finch said. “Being six down in the last game, we tried to be conservative and when Pakistan put the squeeze on you, it can get tough. They are No.1 for a reason.”Ben McDermott was run out for the second successive time in the series by Fakhar Zaman, this time the fielder hitting the stumps with a brilliant backhand flick.Australia was stuttering at 73-6 in the 14th over before Maxwell and Coulter-Nile put on 59 runs but both were dismissed by 18-year-old left-arm fast bowler Shaheen Afridi in the last over.Like in the first match, Pakistan innings revolved around Azam and Hafeez’s 70-run second wicket stand.Australia pegged back Pakistan through its spinners Short and Adam Zampa with Short featuring in the dismissal of both batsmen.What a spell from Nathan Coulter-Nile!His 3/18 has helped restrict Pakistan to 147/6 even after Babar Azam and Mohammad Hafeez led them to 99/1.Will Australia chase the total down to level the T20I series?#PAKvAUS LIVE https://t.co/GMoXSkZ6T2 pic.twitter.com/u8JxcRBvBsICC (@ICC) October 26, 2018Hafeez holed out to Short at deep square leg while Finch caught Azam on the edge of the boundary at long off off Short’s left-arm spin.Coulter-Nile (3/18) returned to remove Shoaib Malik (14) and Hasan Ali off successive deliveries before Faheem Ashraf’s unbeaten 17 off 10 balls gave Pakistan enough runs to defend.(With AP inputs)last_img read more
