Written By First Published: 29th August, 2020 13:28 ISTcenter_img SUBSCRIBE TO US Ty France had four RBIs and the San Diego Padres posted another comeback victory, overcoming an early four-run deficit to beat the Colorado Rockies 10-4 on Friday night.Eric Hosmer and Wil Myers each contributed four hits as part of San Diego’s 19-hit attack. Manny Machado had three hits while extending his hitting streak to 10 games. Zach Davies (5-2) struck out six in 5 2/3 innings, allowing four unearned runs in the first.Matt Kemp hit a three-run shot for Colorado, and Nolan Arenado finished with three hits.San Diego tied the game with three runs in the fifth and pulled away with a four-run burst in the sixth. After hitting a one-out double, Fernando Tatis Jr. showcased his speed in scoring the go-ahead run, advancing on a wild pitch that barely trickled away from catcher Tony Wolters and sprinting home just ahead of a strong throw from Sam Hilliard on Machado’s sacrifice fly to shallow center off Jeff Hoffman (2-1). France added a three-run double to put the Padres up 8-4.The Rockies jumped on Davies in the first, with most of the damage coming on Kemp’s third homer. None of the runs were earned because first baseman Hosmer dropped a relay throw on Charlie Blackmon’s fielder’s choice that would have completed an inning-ending double play. Davies walked Daniel Murphy before Kemp drove a 2-0 pitch into the stand of evergreens behind the wall in center.The game was played through intermittent rain in the early innings.PAINFUL HITPadres reliever Emilio Pagán took a hard shot off his leg on a stinging one-out comebacker by Raimel Tapia, which rolled toward third for a single in the ninth. Trainers came out to the mound to check on him but he managed to stay in the game.ROOKIE MILESTONESan Diego rookie outfielder Jorge Mateo registered his first career RBI when he singled in a run during the fourth inning. In the ninth, he made a spectacular diving catch to take a hit away from Arenado.TRAINER’S ROOMPadres: C Francisco Mejia is making steady progress in his rehabilitation of his bruised left thumb. He went on the 10-day injured list on Aug. 17. “ He’s getting a lot of at-bats and he’s continuing to improve” at the team’s alternate training site at the University of San Diego, said manager Jayce Tingler.Rockies: RHP Chi Chi Gonzalez (right biceps tendinitis) had a strong bullpen session Wednesday and is slated to throw again in the next couple of days. Sidelined since Aug. 7, Gonzalez is nearing a return. “He’s really close to being ready to pitch for us,” manager Bud Black said.(Image Credit Pixabay) LIVE TV WATCH US LIVElast_img read more

first_imgGermany’s record goalscorer Miroslav Klose has called time on his international career.The veteran 36-year-old striker scored 71 goals in 137 appearances over 13 years for the national team.Klose signs off with Germany as a world champion having helped Joachim Low’s men triumph at the World Cup in Brazil last month.During the tournament, Klose became the most prolific goalscorer in World Cup history as he scored in the 7-1 drubbing of the hosts in the semi-final, to take his tally to 16 – one more than legendary Brazil striker Ronaldo.Speaking about his decision, Klose told the German Football Association’s official website: “With the title in Brazil, I achieved a childhood dream.”I am proud and happy that I was able to shape this great success for German football. I had a unique and wonderful time and many memorable moments in the national team. “Recent weeks have made me aware of those moments. For me there can be no better time to decide to end the national chapter.”The Lazio striker made his debut as second-half substitute in a World Cup qualification fixture with Albania in March 2001, and he had an instant impact by netting an 87th-minute winner.Klose played at four World Cups and won the FIFA Golden Boot award in 2006 when the tournament was held in Germany.He also featured in three European Championships, and only Lothar Matthaus has represented Germany on more occasions.Germany head coach Low took time to pay tribute to Klose’s glittering international career. “When I met last with Miro, he told me that he had a lot of thought and discussed [his decision] with the family,” he said.”I immediately felt that his decision was irreversible, that I cannot change his mind.”Miro Klose is an international star, he is one of the greatest strikers [to play] football.“His footballing qualities such as his aerial ability, his goal presence, his understanding of the game and his tireless commitment are second to none world-wide.”last_img read more
