first_imgBatesville CYO Deanery Basketball ScoresSunday  (11-18)St. Louis-1 was defeated by St. Michael’s 43-38. This was a game of 2 halves. The 1st half saw St. Louis-1 play fairly well as they led 30-18. The 2nd half was controlled by St Michaels’s as they would out score St. Louis-1 25 to 8. As well as we played in the 1st half, we played that poorly in the 2nd half. We turned the ball over way too many times and didn’t shot the ball well at all. I was really disappointed in our effort in the 2nd half, but these are things we can fix.STL scoring.

St. Louis-2 jumped out to an early to lead 21-15 after the 1st period. Holy Family would not go away as the game would remain close the entire game. Sam Haskamp’s 3 point shot was offline and that would give St. Louis-2 the win. We played pretty well for our first game. We did just enough to secure the win.STL scoring.

Mike Trout, Clayton Kershaw battle in historic first meeting

first_img“Just from a fan’s standpoint it would be something that (Trout and Kershaw) both get, at this point, a lot of attention,” Mattingly said. “I look at it a different way, from the point of getting guys out.”“I don’t think … we feel we’re going to win or lose with what Mike does against Clayton,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia said, “but obviously there’s a lot of attention when you have two young players of that magnitude going head to head.”The statistics certainly pointed to a meeting of two of baseball’s best.Kershaw began the day with the second-lowest career earned-run average of any pitcher who’s thrown at least 1,000 innings since 1920; Mariano Rivera ranks first. Last year, Kershaw broke Sandy Koufax’s 47-year-old club record for ERA-plus in a single season. This year, Kershaw is on pace to surpass his own record.Trout’s 25.9 WAR through age 22 ranks first all-time, ahead of Ty Cobb (25.5) and Ted Williams (23.6). By hitting a home run Friday, Trout became one of four players all-time with three seasons of at least 25 home runs by age 22. Mel Ott (1929-31), Eddie Mathews (1952-54) and Frank Robinson (1956-58) are the others.In the third inning, Trout lined a double to the left-field corner on the first pitch he saw from Kershaw.In the fifth inning, Kershaw struck out Trout on three straight fastballs, the first over the inside corner, the second and third over the outside corner.The fun was just beginning.Box score from first-ever meeting between Kershaw and Trout.Staff writer Robert Morales contributed to this report Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error The winner of Mike Trout’s first career at-bat against Clayton Kershaw was determined in 76 seconds Tuesday.It was just like any video review. A long pause after the initial call, Don Mattingly trotting slowly out of his dugout, the replay looping on giant screens before a sold-out Dodger Stadium. Like a debate over whether Batman or Superman would win an epic duel between comic-book superheroes, this was the only appropriate answer to the question of who was the better baseball player: Too close to call.One angle appeared to show Trout was safe. Another showed that Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe threw him out. In the end, first-base umpire Jim Reynolds’ initial call was upheld. Trout’s first career at-bat against Kershaw ended with an infield single.Trout-Kershaw gallery | Mike Trout gallery | Clayton Kershaw galleriescenter_img That’s a trivia answer to hold on to until Trout and Kershaw’s mega-contracts expire in 2020.The duel wasn’t actually the first between Kershaw and Trout. In the 2013 All-Star Game, Trout flew out to end a three-pitch at-bat.That at-bat didn’t count toward either player’s official statistics. It certainly didn’t diminish the hype Tuesday afternoon. The idea of the 26-year-old left-hander throwing to the 22-year-old outfielder was the hottest topic of conversation before the Dodgers hosted the Angels.“It’s always, when you face an ace of a rotation on anybody’s team, it’s always going to be something to talk about,” Trout said. “So it’s going to be fun. I’m looking forward to it. He’s got dominant stuff, and it’s going to be fun.”Mattingly struggled to be objective.last_img read more
