Padres Beat Dodgers 5-3 For 1st Sweep of L.A. in San Diego Since 2010
06/24/2021 6:16am

The last time the San Diego Padres swept the Los Angeles Dodgers at Petco Park, in September 2010, right-hander Joe Musgrove was just starting his senior year at Grossmont High in suburban El Cajon.When the Padres got their most recent sweep of LA, at Dodger Stadium in April 2013, Musgrove was still three years away from making his big league debut.So yeah, its a big deal for the hometown kid to be part of a series that had Petco Park rocking for three straight nights.I feel like the rivalry is at its best that its ever been, Musgrove said after the Padres hit three solo home runs off reigning NL Cy Young Award winner Trevor Bauer and beat the Dodgers 5-3 Wednesday night for their first three-game sweep of the NL West rivals in eight seasons.Its a pretty level playing field between the two teams and I feel like were starting to show them that youre not going to walk all over us this year and that were going to fight, weve got the pieces to do it, and now its about going out and doing it, said Musgrove, who got a no-decision after pitching six strong innings. It feels good to be part of that.The game ended in front of a sellout crowd of 43,961 when pinch-hitter Albert Pujols lined out to third baseman Manny Machado, who finished off a tremendous series defensively by doubling Will Smith off second. That earned Mark Melancon his major league-leading 23rd save.San Diego is 7-3 this season against the Dodgers, including winning four straight, and has won two of the three series against the eight-time defending division champions. The Dodgers swept the Padres in the NL Division Series in October en route to winning the World Series.San Diego has won seven straight games overall, including a four-game sweep of the Cincinnati Reds, after losing 13 of their previous 17.Weve got areas to improve at and we are going to be a better team as the season gets going and down the stretch, manager Jayce Tingler said. I dont want to put a ceiling or a cap on what were capable of because this is the most talented group Ive been around. I do believe our best ball is still ahead of us, thats for sure.Trent Grisham drew a go-ahead, bases-loaded walk in the eighth.With the score tied at 3, Jake Cronenworth, who homered in the first, started the winning rally with a leadoff double off Blake Treinen 1-3 that went off the glove of leaping right fielder Matt Beaty. Machado, who also homered in the first, singled. Victor Gonzalez came on and allowed Eric Hosmers sacrifice bunt. Wil Myers was intentionally walked to load the bases before Gonzalez walked Grisham to bring in Cronenworth. Victor Caratini added a sacrifice fly.Cronenworth and Machado connected back-to-back with two outs in the first against Bauer, who won the 2020 NL Cy Young Award while with Cincinnati. Caratini gave the Padres a 3-2 lead with a leadoff homer in the seventh.The Dodgers tied it in the eighth when Max Muncy doubled and scored on Justin Turners opposite-field single to right.Bauer allowed thee runs and five hits in six-plus innings, struck out 10 and walked four.After allowing the consecutive homers in the first, Bauer settled down and retired nine of the next 10 batters before getting into and out of a jam in the fourth. After Bauer struck out Machado and Eric Hosmer, he walked Myers and allowed a ground-rule double to Grisham. Caratini was intentionally walked to get to Musgrove, who struck out looking.Musgrove retired nine of the first 10 Dodgers before Los Angeles broke through in the fourth. Muncy hit a leadoff double, Cody Bellinger activated earlier in the day walked with one out and Smith hit an RBI single. First baseman Hosmer went for a reverse double play on Beatys grounder and forced Smith at second but shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr.s return throw skipped past Musgrove for an error and Bellinger scored.Musgrove, who threw the Padres first no-hitter on April 9, allowed two runs, one earned, and two hits in six innings. He struck out five and walked two.Im a Padre fan. I grew up in San Diego, so Ive been living this for a long time and Ive been watching these series go down and its kind of the dream that you get to participate in an action-packed series like this, Musgrove said.Tim Hill 4-3 got the win.Manny Machado 13 of the San Diego Padres celebrates hitting a home run during the game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the San Diego Padres at Petco Park on Wednesday, June 23, 2021 in San Diego, California. Photo by Daniel Shirey/MLB Photos via Getty ImagesCOMPLIMENTING MACHADOMachado homered twice this series and played stellar defense. In the eighth, while playing in right field in a shift, he dived and fell a few feet short of catching Muncys double.Thats a bad man. Just an absolute bad man, Tingler said. Manny was unbelievable this series.TRAINERS ROOMDodgers: Activated Bellinger from the 10-day injured list after he missed seven games with tightness in his left hamstring. To make room, INF Andy Burns was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City.UP NEXTDodgers: RHP Walker Buehler 7-0, 2.48 ERA is scheduled to start Thursday night in the opener of a home four-game series against the Chicago Cubs, who will counter with RHP Zach Davies 4-4, 4.66.Padres: RHP Chris Paddack 4-5, 4.10 is scheduled to start Friday night in the opener of a three-game home series against the last-place Arizona Diamondbacks, who will counter with RHP Corbin Martin 0-2, 8.62.

Transgender Hurdler Ruled Ineligible for US Olympic Trials
06/24/2021 5:36am

Transgender runner CeCe Telfer will not be allowed to compete in the womens 400-meter hurdles at U.S. Olympic trials because Telfer has not met the conditions World Athletics established in its eligibility regulations for certain womens events.Telfer competed for the mens team at Franklin Pierce University a Division II school in Rindge, New Hampshire but took time off, then came back to compete for the womens team. In 2019, Telfer won the NCAA title.Telfer was entered in this weeks trials, but World Athletics put out new guidelines in 2019 that closed off international womens events of between 400 meters and a mile to athletes whose testosterone levels were at 5 nonomoles per liter nmol/L or more.Telfer had been on the list of qualified athletes for Fridays opening heats. A start list was published Wednesday evening that was missing Telfers name. USA Track and Field released a short statement that said athletes must meet the World Athletic requirements to be eligible for trials. USATF said it had been notified last week that Telfer had not met the conditions and the federation passed along that information to the runner. On Wednesday, Telfers manager, David McFarland, told The Associated Press in a statement that Telfer would respect the decision.

She will compete on the national and world stage again soon, McFarland said. To be eligible for an event, an athlete has to stay below the 5 nmol/L threshold for 12 months. In its guidelines, World Athletics says athletes can lower their testosterone level using an oral contraceptive pill, a monthly injection of a hormone therapy drug or by surgery to remove their testicles. It is their choice whether or not to have any treatment, and if so which treatment to have, World Athletics said in a Q&A discussing its policy. In a blog last week in Womens Health, Telfer said: I love what Im doing and Im getting to live my truth and live my authentic life. I believe that this is my way of being the change that I want to see in the world. And I live by that every single day.In its statement, USATF said it strongly supports inclusivity and providing a clear path to participation in the sport for all, while also maintaining competitive fairness. If CeCe meets the conditions for transgender athlete participation in the future, we wholeheartedly back her participation in international events as a member of Team USATF, the statement said.

Weather, Women's 400 Hurdles Set to Sizzle in Track Trials' Final Weekend
06/24/2021 2:34am

Dalilah Muhammad has all the prestigious credentials: Reigning world champion. Defending Olympic gold medalist. World record holder.Despite that, she doesnt always grab top billing in one of the most competitive races in track and field the womens 400-meter hurdles.The reason Sydney McLaughlin, the 21-year-old phenom who has been on Muhammads heels for most of the past few seasons and even deserves some of the credit for pushing the champion toward her world-record times. Act One of their 2021 drama is expected to take place at the U.S. Olympic track and field trials Sunday. The encore could happen in Tokyo at the Olympics. We definitely push each other to be at our best, Muhammad said. Thats a lot of pressure, but it also makes us so much better.Action resumes Thursday at the trials. There are still many spots up for grabs to Tokyo over the final four days, the last two of which are expected to reach 100 degrees 37.8 Celsius, with a potentially record-setting heatwave descending on the Pacific Northwest. To beat the heat, USA Track and Field moved the start times for Saturdays 20-kilometer racewalks to 7 a.m. two hours earlier than originally scheduled.With McLaughlin pushing her to the finish, Muhammad ran the 400 hurdles in 52.16 seconds at the 2019 world championships in Doha. She broke her own world record from two months previous. McLaughlins second-place time of 52.23 in Doha stands as the third-best time ever.McLaughlin burst onto the national scene by earning a spot for the 2016 Olympics at age 16. Much was made of her multiple talents including the ability to juggle while riding a unicycle.Muhammad, meanwhile, has largely stayed under the radar. She does not consider this a rivalry, per se.Its actually unfortunate that its looked up that way, the 31-year-old Muhammad said. In reality, I definitely wish nothing but the best for Sydney. I love to see where the event can go.Despite finishing second in the last major race, McLaughlin might be considered a slight favorite at the trials. Her best time this season 52.83 is nearly 2 seconds better than Muhammads 54.50. Muhammad is still rounding into form after suffering a hamstring injury earlier this season. Im lucky enough to have a lot of muscle memory in the event, Muhammad said. So it doesnt take a lot at this point of my career to figure out the speed and the pattern of the 400 hurdles.Noahs ArcWorld champion sprinter Noah Lyles had visions of a 100-200 sprint double. But it didnt work out in the 100, where he finished seventh. He promised no such letdown in his signature event, the 200, with the first round Friday and the final Sunday in the final event of the trials.I plan to go into the 200 and dominate, Lyles said. Point blank.Its a loaded field that also includes Terrance Laird, the LSU standout who just announced he was turning pro. Laird recently won the 100 meters at the NCAA championships and finished second in the 200. Long Jump ShowdownA pair of 30-something Olympic champions will headline the womens long jump. Tianna Bartoletta, 35, is the reigning Olympic long jump champion, with Brittney Reese, 34, taking second in Rio. Reese won the event at the 2012 London Games. The up-and-comer is NCAA winner Tara Davis from the University of Texas. Front & CentroMatthew Centrowitz will be a crowd favorite he was recently inducted into the University of Oregon athletics hall of fame when he begins his first step toward defending his Olympic title in the 1,500 meters. In Rio, Centrowitz became the first American to win Olympic gold in the mens 1,500 since 1908. Dont overlook Hobbs Kessler, the 18-year-old from Michigan who broke Jim Ryuns American under-20 record with a timeof 3:34.36 at the Portland Track Festival. Ryuns mark had been on the books since 1966.More Tokyo Olympics Coverageallyson felix18 hours agoTokyo Olympics: Meet the Moms Who Have Qualified for the U.S. TeamTokyo Olympics22 hours agoHere Are the 18 US Olympic Women&039s Soccer Team Players Headed to TokyoHurdlesGrant Holloway 110-meter hurdles and Rai Benjamin 400 hurdles are both at the head of the class in their events. Holloway won the 110 hurdles at the world championships, while Benjamin took silver in the 400 hurdles. Benjamins in hot pursuit of the record for the event, which is 46.78 and set by Kevin Young in 1992. He along with Karsten Warholm of Norway and Qatars Abderrahman Samba have all dipped below the 47-second mark.Its the level of competition that Karsten, Samba and myself have brought the 400 hurdles to running 47s is not going to be enough, Benjamin said. Im ready. Im prepared.Price & BerryDeAnna Price, the American record holder, and Gwen Berry have raised the profile of the American hammer throw. Price is the defending world champion and Berry is not far behind.Berry, a Black athlete, also is drawing awareness in her fight for racial justice. Berry was reprimanded soon after raising her fist on the medals stand at the Pan-Am Games in 2019 it rekindled a contentious debate about Rule 50. In December, she won a humanitarian award for her work raising social justice issues in the United States.
