Ross Stripling strong over seven innings as Dodgers beat up on Giants for a second time

Posted on by

first_img Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season “I mean, it’s just the depth, right?” Stripling said. “You can read about it. In the Andrew Friedman era, we’ve always just had a ton of depth, and this year is no exception to that. I mean we’ve got guys behind Dustin May that are elite in their own rights — guys like Josiah Gray and Tony Gonsolin — that are probably going to help us win games this year. It’s just a testament to our front office, the guys that draft for us and then our coaching staff for developing guys. It’s just kind of like the next man up.“Obviously our lineup is what it is. It’s phenomenal, and it’s going to be a grind for anyone that has to come in and try and pitch to it. But then our ability to have guys that are built up and make starts and then bring guys out of the bullpen that maybe some people have never heard of that are nasty and really good. … It’s just our depth, man. It feels like every year we show it off.”The Dodgers’ bullpen has found the Giants’ lineup — devoid of Buster Posey, Evan Longoria, Brandon Belt or even Madison Bumgarner — just as pliable. Dodgers relievers have allowed just one hit over 6 2/3 scoreless innings so far this season.“I certainly think we should be impressed. But I don’t think surprised,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said of the starts from May and Stripling. “You talk about depth with our club — we talk about it a lot — and starting pitching certainly is a part of that. Dustin and Strip, you know you get opportunities when certain things happen so to see these guys rise to the occasion, not surprised at all, and opportunities that they deserve.”Stripling was smooth and efficient, mixing in a new changeup developed for this season. He strolled through his seven innings on 92 pitches, walked none and struck out seven. Only one Giant reached second base safely. That was Jaylin Davis, who drove an opposite-field, solo home run into the cardboard cutouts enjoying the new “Home Run Seats” in right field.

(Photo by David Crane, Los Angeles Daily News/SCNG)ExpandAn old hand at the replacement starter gig, right-hander Ross Stripling, allowed just one run on four hits in seven innings Friday night as the Dodgers beat the San Francisco Giants 9-1.Dustin May was a last-minute replacement for Kershaw as the Opening Day starter on Thursday. Between them, May and Stripling held the Giants to two runs on 11 hits over 11 1/3 innings, struck out 11 and walked none in the first two games. How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire “He was very efficient,” Roberts said. “He pitched to all the quadrants. His curveball, changeup, cut fastball was all working tonight. He’s just such a good executor of pitches.”The Dodgers’ offense has been thorough if not explosive while scoring 17 runs in two easy victories over the Giants. Friday’s runs came one at a time until they once again put the Giants away with a crooked number late. Two of the runs came on single swings by Max Muncy (in the first and sixth innings). Muncy also scored on the front side of a double-double with Justin Turner in the fourth.The Giants appear to be holding an in-season talent search to assemble a pitching staff. It is not going well.The Dodgers have scored runs against eight different pitchers in the first two games, putting 43 runners on base — 26 on base hits of assorted impact, 13 on walks, one hit by pitch and three on fielding errors. Two of those walks and a throwing error by catcher Rob Brantly led to two runs in the seventh inning Friday, the second driven in by Mookie Betts’ single (his first RBI as a Dodger).“Potent. Dangerous. Explosive. Exciting,” Muncy said, pushed to replace “thorough” as a descriptor for the Dodgers’ offense. “There’s not really one word you can pick for it.“It’s just nice to get out there in real games and see what this lineup can do. … It was exciting during Summer Camp. It’s even more exciting now that the real games are going on.”Muncy made his fourth career start at leadoff in Thursday’s opener with Betts batting behind him against a right-handed pitcher (Johnny Cueto). With a left-hander starting Friday, Betts went back to his preferred spot atop the order and Muncy dropped to second. It’s a left-right arrangement Roberts indicated he will use frequently this season.“I’d better get real comfortable,” Muncy said of the setup. “Once you get past the first inning, it’s just another spot in the lineup. With the way our lineup is, guys are always going to be on base. There’s always a chance to drive people in. It’s nothing too different once you get past that first at-bat.”Related Articleslast_img read more

NFL star Marshall returns to Pittsburgh for one-day camp

Posted on by

first_imgWELCOME—Brandon Marshall talks to campers before they start drills at the Brandon Marshall Youth Football Camp. (Courier ­Photos/William McBride) The importance of determination and giving back to the community are just a few of the skills National Football League player Brandon Marshall taught at his self-titled free Youth Football Camp, June 2, at the Pittsburgh Barack Obama Academy field.Marshall, a wide receiver for the Chicago Bears, partnered with the Pittsburgh Public Schools and other areas, and together they hosted more than 400 boys and girls ages 7-14 at the one-day camp. “It was great. This was more hands on, he ran every drill with the kids and makes it more of a life camp,” said Jason Bell, Pittsburgh director of the Brandon Marshall Camp and former Pittsburgh Public Schools coach. Bell said he has seen a lot of camps, but was very impressed with this one. “He gave a testimony of how he got into the NFL and that it’s important to give back to the community,” he said.Bell also said Marshall stressed the importance of developing life skills, no matter what profession one chooses.Although Marshall got his start in Pittsburgh on Larimer Avenue as a part of the Kingsley Knights midget football league, he later moved to Florida where he attended Lake Howell High School, in which he lettered in basketball and track, and the University of Central Florida.Marshall and his organization were contacted numerous times, but failed to respond by the deadline of this publication.Bell said the camp was important because Marshall reiterated what parents have been trying to teach their children.“When you have a role model like that supporting what the parents are saying, it holds more value,” he said.last_img read more
