Dustin May struck in head by line drive, Dodgers rally to avoid sweep in Arizona

first_img“We definitely felt adversity in this series and … it’s good to feel that every once in awhile. It was a humbling series for us. Now we can get back on track.”May felt more than adversity. He felt the impact of a Jake Lamb line drive that was measured a 91 mph off the bat. May underwent concussion testing and passed. He stood at his locker answering questions about the incident, claiming he didn’t even have a headache — an outcome that allowed teammate Ross Stripling to joke that May’s fluffy head of hair cushioned the impact.“I’m really kind of upset that I didn’t catch it because it grazed my glove,” May said. “It just pretty much grazed my glove but I think it slowed it down enough to not do too much damage. It hit off the band part of my hat so it was probably the best possibility I could look for. But it was really scary.“I saw it coming and I was, ‘Ohhhhh, get out of the way!’”The drive caught May in the side of the head behind and above his right ear. The ball caromed sharply into left field. The 21-year-old rookie dropped to the ground and lay there for a few minutes as a Dodgers trainer rushed out to check on him and May’s teammates gathered around. Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies May eventually stood up, put his hat back on and walked off the field with two members of the Dodgers’ training staff flanking him.“When it hit me at first it really just frightened me,” May said. “Then when I was on the ground, it was like, ‘Well, dang, I wish that wouldn’t have happened.’“Then I was like, I don’t want to rush it to get up because I’ve seen other people do that and it’s a worse outcome. So I figured I’d just stay down and see what happens, see what they say when they come out. … It still hasn’t really set in, that it hit me. We’ll see how it feels tomorrow.”Related Articles How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start PreviousLos Angeles Dodgers staring pitcher Ross Stripling throws against the Arizona Diamondbacks during the first inning of a baseball game Sunday, Sept. 1, 2019, in Phoenix.

(AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin)ExpandPHOENIX — Pitching in relief has not gone well for Dustin May.Making his second relief appearance since being promoted from Triple-A a month ago, the Dodgers’ top pitching prospect took a line drive off the side of the head, knocking him from the game.The liner back to the mound was the fourth of five consecutive singles the Arizona Diamondbacks had in the fourth inning as they scored three times, erasing an early Dodgers lead for the fourth consecutive game. This time, the Dodgers rallied on home runs by Cody Bellinger in the ninth and Joc Pederson in the 11th to win 4-3 Sunday.“We definitely felt some adversity, losing three out of three to start the series,” Dodgers catcher Russell Martin said. “Then we had to dig deep all the way to the end. Belly with a huge home run then Pederson coming off the bench with an absolute moon shot.center_img Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Lefty reliever Adam Kolarek replaced May and gave up the fifth consecutive single in the inning, allowing the go-ahead run to score.The Dodgers held multi-run leads early in each of the four games in Arizona – 3-0 the first three days and 2-0 on Sunday – but let them all get away.Sunday’s lead was built on solo home runs by David Freese and Martin. Freese’s homer came in his first at-bat since July 23 after being activated from the Injured List. Martin’s was the Dodgers’ 236th home run of the season, setting a new franchise record.Stripling handed that off to May in the fourth inning after pitching three scoreless innings in his return from the IL.In his first relief appearance on August 18 in Atlanta, May retired the first batter he faced then loaded the bases and gave up a grand slam.Against the Diamondbacks, he again retired the first batter and loaded the bases on three consecutive singles. That brought up Lamb who lined a 1-and-1 fastball back off May’s head. The ball ricocheted towards left field as two runs scored to tie the game. Josh Rojas singled off Kolarek to put the Diamondbacks in the lead.The Diamondbacks’ bullpen made their lead stand up into the ninth inning when manager Torey Lovullo chose to bring in lefty reliever Andrew Chafin to face Bellinger. Bellinger tied the game with his 43rd homer (tied for the major-league lead).Sixteen of those have come against left-handed pitching, the most for any batter in the majors this season. Bellinger also has the highest OPS for a left-handed batter against left-handed pitching.“He’s always hit left-handed pitching. Last year was certainly an aberration against lefties at times,” said Roberts who platooned Bellinger late last season. “He’s made the adjustments he’s needed to make. I feel very confident with him in the box against anyone.”Bellinger wore Pederson’s cleats Sunday — a superstition that has carried over for awhile now. For his part, Pederson took a bat given to him by Andre Ethier up to the plate against right-hander Taylor Clarke to lead off the 11th. The retired outfielder visited his old team Saturday.“He said it had a lot of hits in it,” Pederson said.It had one very big one. Pederson worked the count full then blasted the eighth pitch of the at-bat 454 feet into the right-field seats.Pedro Baez closed it out in the 11th for his first career save (in his 329th appearance), helping the Dodgers end a three-game losing streak and avoid a four-game sweep in Arizona.“It was as big of a hit for us as we’ve had all year considering obviously losing the first three here, where the pitching was at — you’re down to a couple arms at that point in time,” Roberts said of Pederson’s homer.“You have a four-game set and to come in here and lose four — there’s a lot of, I hate saying pressure, but it’s kind of a must-win situation as far as getting back on the winning track.” Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

Sanchez blames Man Utd flop on lack of game time

first_imgShare on: WhatsApp Instead, in his first full season at Old Trafford, Jose Mourinho was sacked and replaced by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as United finished sixth and as close to the relegation zone on points as they were to champions City.But despite winning no trophies, Sanchez has no regrets over joining United rather than City.“I’m very happy I went to Manchester United. I’ve always said that. It’s the club that’s won the most in England,” added Sanchez.“When I went to Arsenal it was fantastic — I was happy there — but United were growing at the time, they were buying players to win something.“I wanted to join them and win everything. I don’t regret going there.” London, United Kingdom | AFP | Alexis Sanchez believes his failure to shine in a dismal 18 months at Manchester United prior to joining Inter Milan on loan was due to a lack of opportunities.The Chilean moved to Italy on a 10-month loan deal last week with United still paying a large chunk of his reported £400,000 ($484,000) a week wages.Sanchez failed to live up to the expectations United had when signing him from Arsenal on a four-and-a-half year contract in January 2018, scoring just five times in 45 appearances for United.However, he started just 31 of 77 games the Red Devils played during his time there and played the full 90 minutes on just 13 occasions.“I’ve always said to my friends: I want to play,” Sanchez told the BBC.“If they would let me play I’ll do my best. Sometimes I’d play 60 minutes then I wouldn’t play the next game — and I didn’t know why.”Sanchez was signed with United second in the Premier League and aiming to close the gap on local rivals Manchester City, who were also interested in reuniting Sanchez with his former boss at Barcelona Pep Guardiola.center_img FILE PHOTO: Alexis Sanchezlast_img read more
