Nats Alive, Beat Giants, 4-1

first_imgSAN FRANCISCO — Doug Fister pitched seven shutout innings and the Washington Nationals capitalized on Madison Bumgarner’s one off-target throw, staving off elimination in the National League Division Series with a 4-1 win over the San Francisco Giants on Oct. 6.Fister helped the Nationals cut their deficit to 2-1 in the best-of-five series, and end the Giants’ postseason winning streak.St. Louis beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-1 later Monday to take a 2-1 lead in their series, with Kolten Wong hitting a two-run homer to snap a seventh-inning tie, Matt Carpenter going deep for the third straight game and John Lackey living up to his big-game reputation.The game in San Francisco turned when Washington scored two runs on Bumgarner’s throwing error in the seventh inning to end the ace pitcher’s 22-inning scoreless streak. Bryce Harper punctuated the victory with a solo homer in the ninth.Drew Storen allowed the first two batters to reach in the bottom of the ninth but shook off his postseason struggles, allowing a run in closing it out as Washington forced a Game 4 on Tuesday night.On a day Bumgarner had been nearly untouchable, his own miscue prevented a three-game sweep.Bumgarner fielded Wilson Ramos’ two-strike sacrifice bunt between the mound and the first-base line and fired to third rather than going for the sure out at first.“We probably should have taken the out of first. I made a mistake telling him to throw to third,” catcher Buster Posey said. “It happens.”Bumgarner’s throw sailed wide of Pablo Sandoval’s outstretched glove and bounced all the way to the tarp along the left-field wall before rolling over the bullpen mounds where two relievers were warming up.Sandoval nearly did the splits trying to make the play and stayed down in pain as the two runs scored. Trainers checked on the third baseman and he remained in the game.“That was an important play right now. In my mind I was like, ‘I have to do it, have to do it,’ Ramos said. “For me, that changed the whole game. Bumgarner threw a really good game. Those little things happen in games. If we do the little things, we’ll have an opportunity to win this series.”Asdrubal Cabrera followed with an RBI single. He spent the final eight innings watching the Giants’ 2-1, 18-inning victory Saturday night after being ejected for arguing a called third strike.The Dodgers, facing elimination in St. Louis for the second consecutive postseason, will turn to ace Clayton Kershaw on short rest Tuesday night in Game 4. Shelby Miller makes his first career postseason start for the Cardinals, one win from a fourth straight trip to the NL Championship Series.The Cardinals finished off Los Angeles in a six-game NLCS last year, knocking out Kershaw in the fifth inning of a 9-0 blowout in the final game.On Monday, two runners reached against Trevor Rosenthal in the ninth before he earned his second save of the series — with an assist from the grounds crew on a rainy night.With two runners on, Rosenthal missed badly on consecutive pitches to Juan Uribe. Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina and manager Mike Matheny went to the mound, and Matheny motioned toward plate umpire Dale Scott.The grounds crew was called out to apply a drying agent and rake the mound. Rosenthal threw a pair of practice pitches and found his footing, retiring the next two batters on flies to right for his sixth career postseason save.Hanley Ramirez had three of the Dodgers’ seven hits, including an RBI double in the sixth.St. Louis hit 105 homers in the regular season, the second-lowest total in the majors, ahead of only Kansas City. Wong’s two-run shot off loser Scott Elbert put the Cardinals ahead 3-1.Carpenter connected in the third. He and Albert Pujols are the only Cardinals players to homer in three consecutive postseason games.Pujols did it in 2004, the first two in the NL Division Series and the third in the NLCS.TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

According to Elliott, roughly 4.6 million children in the U.S. live in a home with a loaded and unsecured gun.“We hear about these tragedies all the time, even here in San Diego,” Elliott said. “With our Safe Storage of Firearms Ordinance, we hope to prevent life-altering accidental shootings by reminding gun owners that they are responsible for safeguarding those around them by securely storing their guns.”The ordinance is compliant with state law, Elliott said, which require guns manufactured, transferred or sold in California to have an accompanying safety device approved by the state Department of Justice’s Bureau of Firearms. The ordinance, according to the city attorney’s office, will help local law enforcement ensure that residents are following state law.Elliott will present the ordinance to the committee during its 9 a.m. meeting. The committee, chaired by City Councilwoman Monica Montgomery, will meet in the City Administration Building’s 12th floor Committee Room, located at 202 C St. center_img Posted: June 4, 2019 KUSI Newsroom Updated: 6:38 AMlast_img read more

The show provides a visual comparative of the iconography associated with each of the above emotions showcasing the depth of Indian art from the 1850’s to now.Every artist possesses an individual artistic sensibility which, when driven by raw emotion, truly manifests into his creation, affecting the form, composition and its dialogue with the observer.

Providing a visual comparative of the iconography associated with each of the emotions – Harmony, Love, Pride, Devotion and Acquiescence – the collection showcases the depth of Indian art from the 1850’s to the present. This Exhibition aims to show the depth of Indian Art in its entirety. The non-chronological display of the artworks, segregated via emotions, which translate themselves into certain physical decipherable forms, allows the viewer to read and dwell into the art itself, rather than assess it pragmatically based on market researches associated with specific artists. A small effort has been made with this exhibition for the art to speak for itself without being weighed down or enhanced by the artists’ biographies. The viewer will then experience art without judgment and/or in comparison to the plethora of stylistic languages through Indian Art.last_img read more
