Baldwinsville boys soccer dominates F-M, 3-0

first_imgLess than eight minutes into the game, Tyler Johnson, already causing lots of problems on the left side, ripped a shot that F-M goalie Chris Szidat could not handle, which allowed Brennan Walsh to swoop in and convert the rebound.Midway through the first half, B’ville earned a free kick that Kantak dropped into traffic. Amid it, Stephen Foertch dropped a pass to Chase Hornsey, who scored to make it 2-0.It stayed that way until the early stages of the second half. Johnson was robbed by Szidat on a hard, curving shot, but seconds later was well-positioned to take the rebound of a corner kick and head it into the net.The fun continued at Nottingham Thursday night, and though this game was a bit closer and the Bees did surrender a goal, it still put away the Bulldogs 3-1.To its credit, Nottingham kept it tight for a while, only trailing 1-0 at halftime, but the Bees’ depth proved too much as three different players – Foertch, Malik Davis and Griffin Seeber – earned the three goals, Johnson adding an assistB’ville, now 5-0, has two more SCAC Metro division road games next week, traveling to West Genesee on Monday and then venturing to Liverpool Thursday night.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story Pagano, a junior already committed to Syracuse University, led the Hornets to two early-season victories, including a three-goal, two-assist effort in a 5-1 romp over East Syracuse Minoa on Sept. 7.Knowing all this, B’ville set about defending Pagano, and was quite successful. Marked by the likes of Jack Branigan, Jared Kantak, Geoffrey Tse and Dylan Killian, they held Pagano to two good chances, both in the second half – one that went wide, the other stopped by a diving Andy Taylor.And this all took place after the Bees had long established its winning margin. Tags: Baldwinsvilleboys soccercenter_img Victories in each of its first three games by comfortable margins had shown that the Baldwinsville boys soccer team was just as potent and dangerous as the side that reached the state Class AA final four a season ago.Further proof was offered last Monday night at Pelcher-Arcaro Stadium, when Fayetteville-Manlius arrived and the Bees took care of them in every phase of the game on the way to a 3-0 victory.Having struggled (by its own high standards) a season ago, F-M received a jolt when junior forward Cheech Pagano returned from three years of academy soccer.last_img read more

Dodgers batter Rockies bullpen for 8 runs in 7th inning of a 12-4 win

first_imgThe Rockies pinned their hopes on a heavy offseason investment in their bullpen. They committed $106 million to relievers last winter and will pay more in salary to their bullpen than their starting rotation this season.You don’t always get what you pay for. The Rockies’ bullpen is one of the worst in the majors and the Dodgers have done their part to cement that standing over the past two days. They have scored 23 runs in the first two games of this series, 14 in seven innings against Rockies relievers.Saturday’s bullpen bashing began quietly. With the game tied 4-4, Chris Taylor and Justin Turner singled to start the seventh. Yasmani Grandal hustled to beat out a double play, allowing the go-ahead run to score.“If he doesn’t beat that out, we don’t have that big inning. I think we kind of fed off that,” Kemp said. “I think Grandal knows he’s not the fastest guy out there. But he busted down the line, trying to make something happen. He got a ribbie out of it and we just went from there.”Instead of coming up with two outs and the bases empty, Kemp followed with a two-run home run and the floodgates opened.The Dodgers sent 12 batters to the plate in the seventh inning and collected six hits and three walks against three Rockies relievers. When the order came around to him again, Taylor had a two-run triple. Breyvic Valera had a two-run single. Another run scored on a wild pitch.Joc Pederson had a single in the seventh-inning gluttony, one of four hits in the game for him including two home runs.Related Articles Dodgers’ Dave Roberts says baseball’s unwritten rules ‘have changed, should change’ Dodgers’ hot-hitting Corey Seager leaves game with back injury PreviousLos Angeles Dodgers left fielder Joc Pederson, left, celebrates with right fielder Yasiel Puig, right, as center fielder Enrique Hernandez follows the pair after the Dodgers retired Colorado Rockies’ Noel Cuevas for the final out in the ninth inning of a baseball game Saturday, June 2, 2018, in Denver.

(AP Photo/David Zalubowski)ExpandDENVER — The sky isn’t falling any more, if it ever was.Now, it’s the rest of the division falling, coming right back to a Dodgers team that survived being painfully mortal for the season’s first 40 games.The Dodgers scored eight runs in the seventh inning Saturday, thoroughly breaking open a tie game and handing the Colorado Rockies a 12-4 defeat. The eight-run inning was the Dodgers’ biggest scoring burst since another eight-run inning on August 16, 2016 in Philadelphia.And the win was the Dodgers’ 12th in their past 16 games. Depending on the outcome of the Arizona Diamondbacks’ game Saturday night, the Dodgers will finish the night 2 or 2 ½ games out of first place in the National League West. It is the closest the Dodgers have been to first place in the division since April 2.

Subscribe here.“It means we’re playing good baseball right now and we made up for a month and a half of not so good baseball,” said Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp who had a two-run home run in Saturday’s big inning. “But we’ve got a long ways to go. I’m sure as we get healthier and healthier we’re going to get better.”At times over the past two months, it seemed like the Dodgers would never get healthy. It still seems that way. But Kemp is an optimist.“I hope so. That’s the plan,” Kemp said. “I think at some point we will be healthy. I pray to God.”Dodgers manager Dave Roberts defended the NL West before Saturday’s game. Only two teams in the division (the Rockies and Diamondbacks) have winning records and those two have been sinking towards .500 at a fast rate over the past few weeks. But Roberts said it’s too early to judge how tough the competition is when so many of the teams have been robbed of top players due to injuries.He might have a point. But a third of the way into the season, it’s starting to look like the Dodgers might eventually claim their sixth consecutive division title — even if Kemp’s prayers aren’t answered.

Citation: New ‘hot Jupiter’ with short orbital period discovered (2017, July 12) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2017-07-hot-jupiter-short-orbital-period.html ‘Hot Jupiter’ transiting a rapidly-rotating star discovered © 2017 Phys.org More information: KELT-20b: A giant planet with a period of P~ 3.5 days transiting the V~ 7.6 early A star HD 185603, arXiv:1707.01518 [astro-ph.EP] arxiv.org/abs/1707.01518 (Phys.org)—An international team of astronomers reports the discovery of a new “hot Jupiter” exoplanet with a short orbital period of just three and a half days. The newly detected giant planet, designated KELT-20b, circles a rapidly rotating star known as HD 185603 (or KELT-20). The finding was presented in a paper published July 5 on arXiv.org. Explore further The new planet was identified by a group of researchers led by Michael Lund of the Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. The astronomers observed HD 185603 using the KELT-North telescope in Arizona to identify the initial transit signal of a potential planet. The observations were made as part of the Kilodegree Extremely Little Telescope (KELT) survey, which is dedicated to searching for transiting exoplanets around bright stars.The observational campaign was carried out from May to November 2014, and allowed the scientists to identify KELT-20b as an exoplanet candidate. Afterwards, the researchers analyzed archival data and conducted follow-up observations and high-resolution imaging of the object, which resulted in confirming the planetary status of KELT-20b.”We identified the initial transit signal in KELT-North survey data. Archival and follow-up photometry, the Gaia parallax, radial velocities, Doppler tomography, and adaptive optics imaging were used to confirm the planetary nature of the companion and characterize the system,” the authors wrote in the paper.According to the study, KELT-20b has a radius of about 1.73 Jupiter radii and a maximum mass of 3.5 Jupiter masses. It orbits its host every 3.47 days at a distance of approximately 0.05 AU. The planet’s equilibrium temperature is about 2,261 K.The derived parameters of KELT-20b indicate that is belongs to group of planets known as “hot Jupiters.” These exoworlds are similar in characteristics to the solar system’s biggest planet, with orbital periods of less than 10 days. They have high surface temperatures, as they orbit their host stars very closely.The researchers emphasized that the newly discovered planetary system is extraordinary in several ways and that the planet itself is unusual when compared to other “hot Jupiters.””The KELT-20 system represents one of the most extreme transiting hot Jupiter systems, and indeed, one of the most extreme transiting exoplanet systems yet discovered by several measures. The host star is both exceptionally bright (V ∼ 7.6), and exceptionally hot (Teff ~ 8,700 K). It is only the sixth A star known to host a transiting giant companion. The planet itself is on a relatively short period orbit of P ~ 3.5 days, and thus receives an extreme amount of stellar insolation, resulting in an estimated equilibrium temperature of ∼ 2,250 K,” the team concluded.They added that KELT-20b is a great example of a “hot Jupiter” suffering from extreme stellar irradiation, particularly in ultraviolet wavelengths. Therefore, the planet is an excellent target for detailed follow-up observations and characterization. This document is subject to copyright.
