López Escapes Jam to Help Miami Marlins Sweep Arizona Diamondbacks
05/07/2021 8:47am

Pablo Lpez came through with a strikeout when he needed it most, and the Miami Marlins won a close game for a change to complete their first sweep of the season.Lpez fanned Carson Kelly with two on to end the fifth inning, and four relievers completed a five-hitter to help beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 3-1 on Thursday night.The score was 1-all when a double and an error brought Kelly to the plate.The biggest at-bat of the night, Lpez said. My pitch count was high. You just want to go at the guy with everything youve got and empty the tank there.Adam Duvall hit a tiebreaking homer in the seventh, and the Marlins 14-16 improved to 4-11 in games decided by less than three runs.If we continue doing things the right way, the results are going to show, Lpez said. Were in these games, and we have a team full of guys who can make something happen really quick. Things are going to start snowballing.The Diamondbacks came into the series second in the majors in runs but were outscored 20-4 in the three games. We were playing very good baseball, and we got beat, manager Torey Lovullo said. The pitching shut us down. For three days we didnt play our brand of baseball. We know that, and its up to us to get the worm turned. Miguel Rojas led off the first inning with his first home run for the Marlins, but Madison Bumgarner retired the next17 batters.Bumgarner was hit on the right wrist by a 92 mph pitch in the second inning but was unfazed. Instead, the left-hander struck out the next five batters he faced.X-rays after the game were negative.Its a little swollen, Bumgarner said. Theres no great amount of pain.There was a little bit of a scare there, Lovullo said. Duvall greeted J.B. Bukauskas 1-1 with his sixth homer for a 2-1 lead, raising his batting average to .200. Miami added another run on two singles and Chad Wallachs sacrifice fly.J.B. made some mistakes over the plate, and that was the difference in the game, Lovullo said. The Marlins won with five hits.Lpez allowed only an unearned run in five innings. He remained winless this season despite an ERA of 2.04 in seven starts.Dylan Floro 2-1 pitched a perfect seventh, and Yimi Garca worked around a two-out single in the ninth for his fifth save in six chances.Miami came into the game fifth in the majors in ERA.Our pitching has been really good all year long, manager Don Mattingly said. And the bullpen in the last 10 days has come together where everybody is throwing good. Bumgarner allowed one run in six innings. He has an ERA of 1.17 in his past four starts, including a seven-inning complete game when he held the Atlanta Braves hitless, and his season ERA is now 4.91.Rojas error at shortstop in the second led to an unearned run, which scored on Pavin Smiths two-out double.WEB GEMMagneuris Sierra came off the Miami bench and made a leaping catch at the 387-foot sign in center field to rob Asdrbal Cabrera of extra bases in the seventh.I thought the ball was out of the ballpark when it was hit, Mattingly said.UP NEXTDiamondbacks: RHP Zac Gallen 1-1, 3.48 ERA is scheduled to start Friday to begin a three-game series at the New York Mets.Marlins: LHP Trevor Rogers 3-2, 1.91, the NL rookie of the month for April, pitches Friday to begin a three-game series against Milwaukee.More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/hub/MLB and https://twitter.com/APSports Follow Steven Wine on Twitter: https://twitter.com/SteveWine

University of Hartford Drops Sports From Division I to III
05/07/2021 1:06am

The University of Hartford Board of Regents voted Thursday to transition from a Division I to Division III sports model.The decision comes after the Hartford mens basketball team this season won its first America East championship and played in the NCAA Tournament for the first time, losing to eventual national champion Baylor in the first round.University officials said the decision comes after a year of discussion and study of the current athletics model, along with the potential for alternatives. The university also reviewed a report from an on-campus task force made up of coaches, staff, faculty, alumni and a member of the Board.A move to Division III will allow the University to further strengthen the academic, co-curricular, and wellness experience for all students. While we know this decision will disappoint some members of our community, we remain confident that this shift is in the best long-term interests of the institution and all its students, Board Chair David Gordon said in a statement.The discussion to downgrade to Division III has sparked marches on campus led by athletes and a petition from alumni to remain in Division I.The university will have to file its intent with the National Collegiate Athletic Association in January of next year. If approved, the university will work with the NCAA on the reclassification process.The transition to Division III would become effective no later than Sept. 1, 2025. All student-athlete scholarships and coaching contracts will be honored, a university spokesperson said.For the 2022-23 school year, the university will not be offering new athletic scholarships to incoming student-athletes.The University of Hartford owes so much to the generations of student-athletes and athletics staff who have added immeasurably to our community and are a source of pride for the University, UHart President Gregory S. Woodward said in a statement. As we transition to this new model for intercollegiate athletics in the coming years, I am energized by the opportunities we will have to support the success of all of our students, including our student-athletes.School officials said the transition better aligns with the universitys mission and goals of creating exceptional academic, co-curricular, and wellness experiences for all students.A consultants report released last month said the school could save more than $9 million a year by making the move, the Associated Press reported.The school joined Division I from Division II in the mid-1980s.For a more in-depth timeline of the transition, click here.University of HartfordApr 15Email Exchange Appears to Show UHart President Soliciting Support for Move to Division III AthleticsCollege Sports14 hours agoUHart Votes to Transition to Division III Sports

NCAA Reaches a Key Moment as Transgender Laws Multiply
05/06/2021 11:36pm

The NCAA has reached a delicate moment: It must decide whether to punish states that have passed laws limiting the participation of transgender athletes by barring them from hosting its softball and baseball tournaments.Legislation requiring athletes to compete in interscholastic sports according to their sex at birth has been introduced in dozens of states this year, and governors have signed bills in Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi, Tennessee and West Virginia. The Arkansas, Mississippi and West Virginia laws also cover college sports teams.The NCAA Board of Governors issued a statement April 12 saying it firmly and unequivocally supports the opportunity for transgender student-athletes to compete in college sports.When determining where championships are held, NCAA policy directs that only locations where hosts can commit to providing an environment that is safe, healthy and free of discrimination should be selected, the board added. We will continue to closely monitor these situations to determine whether NCAA championships can be conducted in ways that are welcoming and respectful of all participants.Last week, the NCAA announced a preliminary list of 20 schools being considered to host the early round of the NCAA softball tournament the 16 regional sites will be announced when the field is unveiled May 16. The 20 potential regional sites for baseball will be announced next week and that list will be pared to 16 on May 31.Three of the possible softball hosts Alabama, Arkansas and Tennessee are in states with signed transgender sports bans. This is kind of where the rubber meets the road for the NCAA, said Mac McCorkle, a Duke University professor of public policy. Karen Weaver, a former college field hockey coach and athletic administrator now on the faculty at Penn, called the NCAA statement as wishy washy as you can get.Weaver said the NCAA is in a precarious position because of separate, highly charged issues that are likely to impact its bedrock amateurism model: it is depending on Congress to create legislation allowing athletes to make money on use of their name, image or likeness. The Supreme Court also is considering a case weighing whether the NCAAs prohibition on compensation for college athletes violates federal antitrust law.The NCAAs statement on transgender sports bans was carefully worded, Weaver said, and I think its a tenuous time to be taking any kind of stance that might be viewed as political because theyre trying to craft their future in the Congress and Senate with the NIL legislation.Theyre trying to not tick off any potential folks who might vote for something that benefits the NCAA the most, Weaver said.Jeff Altier, the NCAA Division I Baseball Committee chairman and the athletic director at Stetson, said last month that his committee had been given no directive to exclude any school from consideration for hosting a regional. Altier referred other questions to the NCAA. Gail Dent, spokeswoman for the Board of Governors, did not respond to questions about the NCAAs willingness to pull events out of states with bans.Its surprising the NCAA would say one thing, that they are monitoring it, and then select site locations that are in areas of the country that are doing anti-trans, anti-LGBTQ legislation, said Shane Windmeyer, founder and executive director of Campus Pride, a national organization advocating for safer college environments for LGBT students. Windmeyer said the NCAAs Office of Inclusion has been an ally. He said Campus Pride and similar organizations have received grants from the NCAA to fund diversity and inclusion summits and other programming.The NCAA has had policies in place since 2011 that allow for transgender participation in sports. Testosterone suppression treatment is required for transgender women to compete in womens sports. Last year, following the Southeastern Conferences lead, the NCAA announced it would not hold championship events in Mississippi unless a depiction of the Confederate flag was removed from the state flag. The Mississippi Legislature acted swiftly to remove the symbol.In 2016, the NCAA made good on its threat to pull championship events out of North Carolina in response to the bathroom bill, which required transgender people to use restrooms according to their sex at birth and not their gender identity. Greensboro lost first- and second-round games in the mens basketball tournament in 2017 they were moved to Greenville, South Carolina. The law was repealed before the NCAA could take away more events.When they got involved with the bathroom bill in North Carolina, that was, in my opinion, a bold step for them, Weaver said. Im not seeing that same enthusiasm right now.The NCAA traditionally selects baseball and softball regional sites based on a teams performance as well as quality of facilities and financial considerations. This year, potential sites were pre-determined because each must be evaluated for its ability to meet the NCAAs COVID-19 protocols.Four of the top five teams in this weeks D1Baseball.com Top 25 No. 1 Arkansas, No. 2 Vanderbilt, No. 4 Mississippi State and No. 5 Tennessee ordinarily would be considered shoo-ins to be regional hosts. The four schools confirmed to The Associated Press they submitted bids to host but declined interview requests on the topic of the NCAAs decision.Since 2000, the home team has won 67.5 of baseball regionals and there is money to be made, too. A University of Arkansas study showed baseball fans visiting the Fayetteville area spent about $2 million during a three-day regional in 2018, excluding cost of tickets and in-stadium purchases.The NCAA is limiting attendance to 50 of stadium capacity at its spring sports championships because of the pandemic, so the windfall wont be as great this year.For now, everyone waits to see the next step on site selections from the NCAA, which has referred all questions to the Board of Governors statement.Speaking as a consultant, you can say to the NCAA, Oh well, you made this problem, you shouldnt have said anything, McCorkle said. I dont know how they navigate it, but I dont think theres any way to have avoided this.This story has been updated to correct Weavers employer to Penn, not Penn State.
