Medina Spirit Could Lose Ky. Derby Win; Track Bans Baffert
05/09/2021 2:16pm

Medina Spirits victory in the Kentucky Derby is in serious jeopardy because of a failed postrace drug test, one that led Churchill Downs to suspend Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert on Sunday in the latest scandal to plague the sport.Baffert denied all wrongdoing and promised to be fully transparent with the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission during its investigation. Bafferts barn received word Saturday that Medina Spirit had tested positive for an excessive amount of the steroid betamethasone, which is sometimes used to treat pain and inflammation in horses.Medina Spirits win over Mandaloun in the Derby stands for now.To be clear, if the findings are upheld, Medina Spirits results in the Kentucky Derby will be invalidated and Mandaloun will be declared the winner, Churchill Downs officials said in a statement shortly after Baffert held a hastily planned morning news conference outside his barn to announce and respond to the allegations.The track said failure to comply with the rules and medication protocols jeopardizes the safety of horses and jockeys, the sports integrity and the Derbys reputation.Churchill Downs will not tolerate it, the statement read. Given the seriousness of the alleged offense, Churchill Downs will immediately suspend Bob Baffert, the trainer of Medina Spirit, from entering any horses at Churchill Downs Racetrack.Medina Spirit is expected to run in the Preakness on Saturday, barring some abrupt change in plans or a decision from officials at Pimlico or Marylands racing commission that would prevent him from entering the second jewel of the Triple Crown.Officials from 1/ST Racing, a branding arm of the Stronach Group that owns and operates Pimlico, and the Maryland Jockey Club said Sunday they would consult with state authorities and that any decision regarding the entry of Medina Spirit in the 146th Preakness Stakes will be made after review of the facts. Officials rescheduled the post position draw for Tuesday afternoon, moving it back a day in light of the uncertainty.I got the biggest gut-punch in racing for something that I didnt do, Baffert said of the failed drug test. And its disturbing. Its an injustice to the horse. I dont know whats going on in racing right now, but theres something not right. I dont feel embarrassed. I feel like I was wronged. Were going to do our own investigation. Were going to be transparent with the racing commission, like weve always been.Hes a great horse. He doesnt deserve this. He ran a gallant race, Baffert added.The only horse to be disqualified for medication after winning the Derby is Dancers Image in 1968.Medina Spirit is Bafferts fifth horse known to have failed a drug test in just over a year. Flanked by his attorney Craig Robertson, Baffert said his barn was told that Medina Spirit was found to have 21 picograms of betamethasone slightly more than double what the trainer said was the allowable amount in a postrace sample.Betamethasone is the same drug that was found in the system of Gamine, another Baffert-trained horse who finished third in the Kentucky Oaks last September. Gamine was eventually disqualified from that finish because of that test and Baffert was fined $1,500. Betamethasone is legal under Kentucky racing rules, though it must be cleared 14 days before a horse races.Im not a conspiracy theorist, Baffert said. I know everybody is not out to get me, but theres definitely something wrong. Why is it happening to me You know, theres problems in racing, but its not Bob Baffert.Mandaloun, which lost the Derby by a half-length, is not going to the Preakness. If Mandaloun is declared the Kentucky Derby winner, that would mean the Triple Crown pursuit for 2021 would end right there. It is unknown how long Kentucky officials will take to determine whether the results of the Derby should stand or will change.If Medina Spirit is disqualified, his connections will not receive the $1.86 million winners share of the Derby purse money. But for bettors, anything that happens next wont matter those who cashed in on Medina Spirit still win, those who didnt still lose and those who backed Mandaloun missed out on a winning ticket that would have returned more than $50 on a $2 wager.Baffert was planning to saddle Medina Spirit and Concert Tour in the Preakness, going for a record eighth victory in that race. Except for 2020 when the races were run out of order due to the coronavirus pandemic, Baffert is undefeated with a Derby winner in the Preakness.Last month, Baffert won an appeals case before the Arkansas Racing Commission after he had been suspended by Oaklawn Park stewards for 15 days for a pair of positive drug tests involving two of his horses that won at the track on May 2, 2020. The horses tested positive for the painkiller lidocaine, which Baffert said they were exposed to inadvertently.But as Baffert insisted that horse racing can do better preventing doping, he also acknowledged the spotlight.I know Im the most scrutinized trainer and have millions of eyes on me. But you know what I dont have a problem with that, Baffert said. The last thing I want to do is do something that would jeopardize the greatest 2 minutes in sports.Animal Wellness Action executive director Marty Irby said in a statement that racing authorities should throw the book at those found guilty of violations. The failed drug test is just another in a long series of events shadowing the sport and the Derby, its best known and most prestigious race in recent years.Maximum Security crossed the line first in the 2019 Kentucky Derby before being disqualified by Churchill Downs stewards for interference in what was an unprecedented move. Country House, which crossed the line second in that race, is now considered the winner.In March 2020, Jason Servis who was Maximum Securitys trainer was part of a sweeping indictment that involved trainers, veterinarians and pharmacists in a horse doping ring. Baffert faced the doping allegations in Arkansas and Kentucky last year with Gamine, and now this.Im worried about our sport, Baffert said. Our sport, weve taken a lot of hits as a sport. These are pretty serious accusations here, but were going to get to the bottom of it and find out. We know we didnt do it.AP Sports Writers Tim Reynolds and Stephen Whyno contributed to this report.More AP sports: https://apnews.com/hub/apf-sports and https://twitter.com/APSports

Dodgers Blow Most of 13-Run Lead, Still Outlast Angels 14-11
05/09/2021 5:24am

The Los Angeles Dodgers scored 13 runs in two innings to take a massive mid-game lead. Over the next two innings, they gave 10 of it back to the Los Angeles Angels.The way the World Series champions rocky title defense has been going for the past three weeks, perhaps its no surprise they couldnt claim their first win in six days without some sort of energy-draining drama.The Dodgers still came out of Angel Stadium smiling.You dont want that to happen, but I think beggars cant be choosers right now, Mookie Betts said. Well take any win that we can get.Betts drove in a season-high four runs and the Dodgers held on for a 14-11 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday night, snapping their four-game losing streak in hair-raising fashion.We needed a win, so there was a lot more good that came out of tonight than bad, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said.But the highest-scoring game in Freeway Series history got that way in bizarre circumstances. After neither team managed a hit in the first three innings, the Dodgers went up 13-0 in the fifth, only to watch their bullpen surrender 11 runs to the Angels by the seventh.Just when the Angels could realistically think about the largest comeback in major league history the biggest lead ever blown is 12 runs the Dodgers bullpen retired their final seven batters. Victor Gonzalez pitched a 1-2-3 eighth, and Blake Treinen threw a perfect ninth for his first save.Clayton Kershaw 5-3 pitched five innings of two-hit ball on three days rest for the Dodgers, who emerged from a three-week funk for just their fifth win in 19 games. Corey Seager had three of the Dodgers 17 hits in their seventh win over the Halos in eight meetings over the past two seasons.All the wins count the same, Kershaw said. Were starting to figure it out. Tonight was a good start.The Halos scored seven unearned runs in a two-out rally in the seventh, caped by Jose Rojas first career homer. The dramatic three-run shot the only homer in a 25-run game trimmed the lead to three runs, but the Angels could take it no farther.Angels manager Joe Maddon watched the final innings from the clubhouse after getting ejected.You can feel momentum, even through a television screen, Maddon said. Really wonderful, the at-bats, moving the conga line. No quit. Thats kind of a bonding moment, in a sense. Really proud of the boys.Jared Walsh had a two-run single in a four-run sixth for the Halos, who took their sixth loss in seven games.The Southern California rivals had never scored more than 19 combined runs in the previous 131 editions of this series, which the Angels lead 71-61.The Dodgers scored 13 runs in two innings with just two extra-base hits, and all nine Dodgers starters scored for the first time since October 2019. After going 3 for 36 with runners in scoring position during their four-game skid, the Dodgers got hits in seven of their first nine opportunities in the fourth inning alone.The Dodgers chased Dylan Bundy 0-4 in the fourth with a spree of soft-contact hits leading to six runs.Its very frustrating, but at the end of the day, theres nothing you can do about it, said Bundy, who yielded five hits. You can put guys where theyve been hitting the ball against us, but as soon as you do, they hit it somewhere else.Kershaw hadnt pitched on three days rest since the 2016 playoffs, but he stepped up to help out the Dodgers injury-plagued rotation after he lasted just one inning against the Cubs last Tuesday in the shortest start of his career.Kershaw visibly didnt want to come out after five innings, and the Dodgers bullpen justified his concern.Relievers Dennis Santana and Mitch White also didnt get enough help: The Angels seventh-inning rally started with Austin Barnes error on Shohei Ohtanis two-out grounder.DJ AND JOEDodgers outfielder DJ Peters got his first major league hit with a double in the seventh when Jon Jay barely missed a sliding catch down the left field line.Maddon then was ejected for the 57th time in his career for arguing the ball should have been ruled foul by the umpires, who didnt change their call after video review. Maddon passed Sparky Anderson and tied Dick Williams for the 16th-most ejections by a manager in baseball history.TRAINERS ROOMDodgers: Recalled Peters and optioned RHP Edwin Uceta to cover for OF AJ Pollock, who strained his hamstring Friday.Angels: RHP Alex Cobb went on the injured list with a blister. He was scheduled to start Monday. They didnt immediately replace him on the roster.UP NEXTTrevor Bauer 3-1, 2.44 ERA pitches on four days rest for the Dodgers in the series finale against the Angels struggling Jos Quintana 0-3, 10.59. Bauer hasnt faced the Angels since 2017, but is 4-0 against the Halos in five career starts.

Chicharito, Jonathan dos Santos Lead Galaxy to 2-1 Victory Over LAFC in First El Tráfico of 2021
05/09/2021 2:18am

Javier Chicharito Hernndez had a goal and an assist, and Jonathan dos Santos scored in the 79th minute to give the LA Galaxy a 2-1 lead over rival Los Angeles FC on Saturday night.After a giveaway by LAFC deep in their own end, Hernndez won possession in the left side of the box and fended off two defenders. He then found dos Santos on a crossing pass as the midfielder was able to put it past Pablo Sisniega and into the near post for his first goal of the season.Diego Rossi evened it at 1 for LAFC in the 62nd minute with his first goal. Rossi got a pass from Corey Baird deep in the box and put it into the center of the goal. Rossi has six goals and five assists in the four years of the El Trfico rivalry.Chicharito scored his MLS-leading sixth goal of the season in the 11th minute with a shot into the far post. The score was set up after a great tackle by Derrick Williams.Many were expecting it to be the first meeting since 2013 between close friends Chicharito and LAFCs Carlos Vela, but Vela was out for a third straight game with a quadriceps injury.The Galaxy improved to 3-1 and are tied with San Jose atop the Western Conference with nine points. The Galaxy have won five of the 11 meetings with LAFC with three ties.LAFC 1-2-1 had a 60-40 advantage in possession and outshot the Galaxy 17-11. Bond made four saves for the Galaxy and Sisniega stopped one shot.UP NEXTLAFC: Travel to Seattle on May 16.Galaxy: Host expansion Austin FC next Saturday.

Freeway Series: Angels Snap 5-Game Skid, Blast Dodgers 9-2, Who Have Dropped 4-Straight
05/08/2021 5:17am

David Fletcher drove in three runs on three hits, Shohei Ohtani had two RBI doubles and the Los Angeles Angels snapped their five-game losing streak with a 9-2 victory over the slumping Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night.Justin Upton and Taylor Ward homered in the Angels four-run second inning, and Mike Trout had a late RBI triple as the Halos opened the Freeway Series with a positive jolt from only their fifth win in 16 games.We got the mojo back on our side a little bit, said Griffin Canning, who pitched six-hit ball into the sixth inning for the Angels. Hopefully we can keep bringing that same energy. It was a really good atmosphere. It was a lot of fun. Momentum is such a big thing in baseball, so any time you can keep the momentum on your side, its going to be beneficial.Mookie Betts homered in the ninth for the Dodgers, who have lost four straight. The defending World Series champions swept the six-game Freeway Series last season, but theyve lost 14 of 18 overall this year in an increasingly alarming early-season swoon.Were too good of hitters to do this for a whole year, Dodgers catcher Will Smith said. Eventually well get the offense going.Canning 3-2 ended the Angels recent pitching woes despite throwing to new catcher Drew Butera about 90 minutes after they first met. Patrick Sandoval then pitched 3 1/3 innings of relief for his first career save, completing the Angels best-pitched game of a rough week.Between Sandoval and Griff, that was outstanding tonight, Angels manager Joe Maddon said. Its almost like a complete game where your bullpen doesnt move around that much. All these other guys benefit from that.Julio Uras 4-1 had his least impressive start in a strong season for the Dodgers, yielding eight hits and five runs over five innings in his Angel Stadium debut.Uras surprising struggles werent the only problems for the defending champs, who also got a rocky season debut from reliever Joe Kelly and a Grade 1 hamstring strain for outfielder AJ Pollock.We just need to be better, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. I still know our players are very good and talented, but its about going up there and making productive outs, getting hits when you need to get them, and we just need to get better.The Dodgers scored first on Matt Beatys RBI groundout in the second, but Upton led off the Angels half with a 436-foot homer in his first game since returning from a two-day break with a bruised knee.After Ward added his first homer of the season, catcher Butera doubled in the first at-bat of his season debut before scoring on Fletchers two-run single.The Dodgers are already struggling mightily with pitching injuries, and their overall injury situation got even more shaky when Kelly, an Anaheim native, made his season debut in the sixth.The veteran reliever was tagged for RBI hits by Jose Rojas a fellow Anaheim native along with Fletcher, Ohtani and Trout, who got credit for a triple when Pollock misplayed his sinking liner to left. Pollock walked off the field gingerly after the play.Kelly, who had surgery to remove cysts in his shoulder late last year, gave up five hits and four runs while getting just two outs.BUTERA ARRIVESThe Angels acquired Butera from Texas earlier in the day in exchange for cash considerations. The 37-year-old journeyman catcher played 10 games for the Halos in 2015 before being traded to Kansas City and winning a World Series ring. Butera is filling in alongside Kurt Suzuki while Max Stassi and Anthony Bemboom are out with injuries.TRAINERS ROOMDodgers: OF Cody Bellinger ran at 60 effort and felt good afterward in Arizona, manager Dave Roberts said. The former NL MVP hasnt played since April 5 with a hairline fracture in his left leg. Rookie Zach McKinstry is moving without pain from his oblique injury.Angels: Bemboom cant play because his back recently locked up, manager Joe Maddon said. Stassi is on the injured list with an apparent concussion.UP NEXTClayton Kershaw 4-3, 2.95 ERA will start on three days rest for the first time since the 2016 playoffs against the Angels Dylan Bundy 0-3, 4.00 ERA. Kershaw is helping out the injury-depleted Dodgers because hes coming off the shortest start of his career Tuesday against the Cubs, throwing 39 pitches and going just one inning.
