Sato, Kondo reach final at Matchplay

first_img GET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMES TOMAKOMAI, Hokkaido – Nobuhito Sato edged Hirofumi Miyase on the first extra hole Saturday to win his semifinal of the Japan PGA Matchplay Championship, setting up a 36-hole final with Tomohiro Kondo who ousted Shingo Katayama with a 1-up victory.Fourth-seeded Sato, the Japanese tour’s money leader and the only quarterfinalist among the top five seeds, eliminated New Zealand’s David Smail with a 1-up win in the morning and then held off Miyase after blowing a three-hole lead in regulation 18 holes. Sato clinched his spot in Sunday’s final after hitting a 148-yard second shot to three feet on the first extra hole — the par-4 11th — where Miyase hit his drive into the trees and had to lay up, failing to save par.“I have a poor matchplay record and I never thought I would come this far. I’ve had problems in my swing all week but I’m happy to be where I am after winning matches in very trying circumstances,” Sato said. Yoneyama in control KAWAGUCHIKO, Yamanashi Pref. (Kyodo) Midori Yoneyama had trouble with her putting but fired a bogey-free 1-under-par 70 and maintained the lead by two strokes at the Fujisankei Ladies Classic on Saturday.Yoneyama, who has won four titles in her four-year career, carded one birdie — at the par-5 sixth hole — en route to a 5-under total of 137 at the Fujizakura Country Club in Yamanashi Prefecture.“I kept coming up short of the cup. Since it wasn’t raining in the first half of today’s round, I thought the greens would be faster than yesterday and most of my putting turned out to be a bit too soft,” Yoneyama said. center_img IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5last_img read more

Doris, James promise ‘excitement’ tomorrow at Leonora

first_img– Olympian looking forward to seeing much of Guyana RENOWNED for his exploits on the track, specifically in the 400 metres, Kirani James arrived in Guyana last evening, along with Guyana’s Commonwealth Games triple Jump gold medallist, Troy Doris and a host of athletes from the 25 countries set to feature at tomorrow’s Aliann Pompey meet.The National Track and Field Centre at Leonora will host the event for the third year and according to James and Doris, athletics fans could expect nothing short of fireworks.For James, competing at the Aliann Pompey Invitational provides him an opportunity to return to full fitness after missing a year from the sport he’s acclaimed for; recovering from Graves’ disease (an immune system disorder that results in the overproduction of thyroid hormones).On his return to the track on June 9 at the JN Racers Grand Prix in Kingston, Jamaica, James clocked an impressive 44.35 seconds to win the 400 metres at the event.According to the 25-year-old Grenadian who won his country’s first ever Olympic Medal in 2012 (400 metres gold), his primary intention ahead of next year’s world championship is to be in a position where he could reclaim his throne as the world’s best over the distance as he first did in Daegu.James also pointed out that he’s looking forward to the challenge tomorrow at Leonora, adding that he hopes that his presence inspires an upcoming athlete in Guyana, but warned that he’s also here to compete, throwing down the gauntlet to those desirous of a challenge.Nigerian Chidi Okezie, the African Championships 400 metres bronze medallist; Guyana’s 400 metres record holder (45.25 seconds) Winston George; US-based Guyanese Stephan James, Arinze Chance, Carlwyn Collins, Dequawn Nkosi Vancooten, Brian Roman, Shawn Semple, Joshua Walcott and South American Junior record holder, Daniel Williams, are all expected to face off against the legendary Grenadian.Meanwhile, for Doris, the Aliann Pompey Invitational will mark his first time competing in Guyana, and speaking to Chronicle Sport upon his arrival at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport, the Chicago-based triple jump specialist is looking forward to the competition, stating “I’ve basically competed against most of the guys and I’m looking forward to the challenge.”Doris (17.18 metres, his personal best) will come up against Donald Scott, the Outdoor USA Track and Field Championships triple jump champion, who leaped to victory with a distance of 17.37 metres, which was also a personal best.Suriname’s Miguel Van Assen who holds his country’s national record in the event, as well as the CARIFTA and South American title, also arrived in Guyana.Van Assen’s personal best is 16.94 metres. The Surinamese is also the 2014 Summer Youth Olympic Games champion.The triple jump at this year’s Aliann Pompey Invitational could steal the show, since also arriving to compete is the Bahamas’ Leevan Sands.Sands won bronze at the 2008 Olympic Games, as well as bronze at the World Championship and Commonwealth Games. He’s a Pan Am Games silver medallist and multiple times gold medallist at the CARIFTA Games.last_img read more

Kuldeep and Rohit dismantle England in ODI opener

first_imgNOTTINGHAM, England (Reuters) – India’s spin sensation Kuldeep Yadav tormented England with a six-wicket haul and Rohit Sharma then piled on the runs as the tourists won their opening one-day international with ease at Trent Bridge yesterday.The victory by eight wickets, and with 9.5 overs remaining, came after the hosts were all out for 268 with a ball to spare on a sunny afternoon in Nottingham.Sharma, who was dropped on 92, sealed his 18th century from 181 ODIs with a six before taking his tally to 137 not out.Captain Virat Kohli contributed 75 before being stumped by the quick-thinking Jos Buttler, ending a 167-run partnership and leaving India at 226-2, but the necessary 43 were found without difficulty.Left-arm wrist-spinner Kuldeep had earlier ripped through the hosts’ top order with three wickets in the space of 10 balls and completed his 10-over stint with figures of 6-25.The performance was the best by a spin bowler against England in one-day cricket. The 23-year-old left-arm spinner also conceded no boundaries on a slow, dry pitch. England, the world’s top ODI side who had started brightly after second-ranked India won the toss and opted to bowl, were 71-0 after the opening 10 overs, when Kuldeep was handed the ball.Jason Roy (38) was first to fall, with Joe Root (3) and Jonny Bairstow (38) both following lbw as the spinner weaved his magic.SHAKY ENGLANDEngland looked shaky at 105-4, after captain Eoin Morgan was caught by Suresh Raina off Yuzvendra Chahal, but Buttler (53) and Ben Stokes (50) restored some calm with half-centuries before Kuldeep struck again.Stokes’s 50 was painfully slow, coming off 102 balls and with only two fours.He was caught on his 103rd ball, a reverse sweep plucked out of the air by the diving Siddarth Kaul to take Kuldeep to 5-23. Buttler, caught down the leg side by MS Dhoni after reaching his 50 from 45 balls, had been Kuldeep’s fourth. The spinner, who also dismantled England during the recent Twenty20 series that India won 2-1, wrapped up by taking David Willey with his last ball, caught by Lokesh Rahul. Former England captain Nasser Hussain felt sympathy for his compatriots.“One thing that’s for certain is that England need to find a method to deal with him,” he told Sky Sports television of Kuldeep.“If they carry on playing him like this, he’ll be playing in the Test series too because he’s all over Root and Bairstow in particular.”The second of the three-match ODI series is at Lord’s tomorrow.

Warriors remain undefeated seven–wicket win over TKR ( 10-0)

first_imgGuyana Amazon Warriors (GAW) extended their undefeated streak to 10 following their eight-wicket win over Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR) last night at Providence to close off the group stage of the 2019 HERO Caribbean Premier League (CPL). TKR were invited to bat and contained to 143-5 from their 20 overs mainly due to three early wickets by left-arm spinner, Chandrapaul Hemraj who ended with 3-15.In reply, Warriors had a slight scare when the rains came and stopped play for 50 minutes with the score 59-3, at which point if the match been called off, it would have been deemed a tie.Shoaib Malik’s unbeaten 28 helped steer Guyana Amazon Warriors to their 10th consecutive win (Orlando Charles photo)Nevertheless, an unbeaten half century from Nicholas Pooran ensured the hosts reached 144-3, leaving eight balls remaining as they became the first team in the history of the CPL to play undefeated in the group stage The defending champions, TKR failed to find consistent partnerships with Hemraj striking off  consecutive legal deliveries bowling Javon Searles (01) who was experimented as an opener and Denesh Ramdin.Those two early wickets restricted TKR to 40-2 in the powerplay and sent the sold out crowd of 15000 into an uproar.The left-arm spinner then accounted for the wicket of Lendl Simmons (30) who looked dangerous early on. His half-hour stay at the crease saw him facing just 24 balls and hitting two sixes and three fours along the way as he passed 6000 runs in the format. Warriors began their hunt for wickets in the middle order but Colin Munro was keen on defying them.Munro played his way deep into the innings, scoring an important 40-ball 43 decorated by two fours and two sixes.Shimron Hetmyer had dropped Munro on 21 but redeemed himself by holding on to a catch from him down on the long on boundary. After Darren Bravo slugged a one handed shot high into the lights and safely into the hands of Hetmyer, a lot rested on the shoulders of their captain, Kieron Pollard.Pollard also found it difficult to counteract the Warriors’ bowling, hitting one six and four fours, finishing unbeaten on 36 from 27 balls mostly due to an 18-run final over.Nicholas Pooran launches one of his three sixes into the Grass Mound (Orlando Charles photo)Warriors began their chase cautiously with their two most consistent batsmen, Hemraj and Brandon King sharing in a 35-run opening stand. That partnership was broken as Hemraj looked to pull a short ball into the Green Stand but only managed to pick out Chris Jordan at deep mid-wicket for 12 and end the powerplay 43-1.King soon followed for a 23-ball 33 highlighted by seven boundaries  given out leg before wicket by a ball that struck top of the knee roll.Hetmyer’s stay was shortlived, the batsman picking out Simmons at cover. He left as the groundsmen came on with the covers as the  rain came sweeping across the Stadium.After the rain, it was the Pooran show. The 24-year-old Trinidadian laid waste to the bowlers towards the back end of the innings as he raced to 54 not out from 35 balls. Pooran’s innings was paced to perfection. He hit three sixes, two  over mid-wicket with one landing into the Grass Mound off a free hit as well as a flick into square leg off Chris Jordan in what was the shot of the night.The left-handed batsman similarly pummeled five fours, two consecutively off bowler Ali Khan, the first bringing up his half century with a swat over the bowler’s head and down the ground and the other a powerful cut to end the innings.Javon Searles had his stumps scattered by left-arm spinner, Chandrapaul Hemraj (Orlando Charles photo)At the other end was the skipper, Shoaib Malik a mere spectator with an unbeaten 28 form 29 balls consisting of two boundaries. Together, the pair forged an unbroken 86-run partnership. TKR will face St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots at 11.00 hours while Warriors will now play Barbados Tridents in the first qualifier at 15.30 hours tomorrow at the same venue.last_img read more

Orioles release veteran Alcides Escobar, paving way for Rule 5 infielders

first_imgThe rebuilding Orioles always seemed likely to keep Rule 5 infielders Richie Martin and Drew Jackson on their 25-man roster, but the release of veteran infielder Alcides Escobar further cements those plans.The former Kansas City shortstop and 2015 All-Star selection was granted his unconditional release on Wednesday after batting just .219 in 38 plate appearances in the Grapefruit League. Escobar signed a minor-league deal with Baltimore in mid-February and was viewed as an insurance policy in case Martin or Jackson — neither of whom have played above the Double-A level — were overwhelmed by spring competition.With Escobar’s departure, Martin, 24, becomes the clear favorite to be the Opening Day shortstop and entered Wednesday batting .270 with four extra-base hits, four runs batted in, and a .747 on-base plus slugging percentage. Meanwhile, the 25-year-old Jackson has played all over the diamond and is on track to serve as a utility player and entered Wednesday’s action hitting .333 with a home run, six RBIs, and a .798 OPS.Escobar, 32, posted a .593 OPS and was worth minus-0.7 wins above replacement in 140 games for the Royals last season.With Wednesday’s transaction, the Orioles have 38 players remaining in major league camp.last_img read more
