first_imgItaly and Brazil both booked their places in the semi-finals of the Confederations Cup on Wednesday as Japan and Mexico bowed out.Italy progressed by snatching a barely-deserved 4-3 victory from a pulsating game against the Japanese in Recife.Italy scored three times in 11 minutes either side of half-time, through Daniele De Rossi, Atsuto Uchida’s own goal and Mario Balotelli’s penalty after Japan had established a 2-0 lead courtesy of Keisuke Honda’s spot-kick and Shinji Kagawa’s neat finish.Shinji Okazaki made it 3-3 in the 69th minute, but Sebastian Giovinco netted four minutes from the end to give Italy the points.Still Japan almost equalised as Okazaki hit the bar and Maya Yoshida converted the rebound, only to be denied by the offside flag.The result took Italy into the last four and also confirmed Brazil’s place in the semis. Neymar and Jo scored the goals as the hosts saw off Mexico 2-0 in the earlier game.It was not a classic performance from Brazil by any means, but the flashes of brilliance remained, and it was two pieces of fantastic skill by Neymar at the start and the end of the game which proved to be the ultimate difference.The 21-year-old fired Brazil into the lead within nine minutes when he picked up the ball in the edge of the box and volleyed home a stunning strike before his jinking run up the left and deft footwork set up former Manchester City striker Jo in stoppage time for the second.last_img read more

first_imgATLANTA — The plot thickened for the Dodgers on Sunday night, along with the first act of Ronald Acuña Jr.’s long-running play.The possible National League Rookie of the Year hit a grand slam in the second inning of Division Series Game 4, and after the Dodgers powered their way back to a tie, Freddie Freeman’s solo shot off Alex Wood gave the Braves a 6-5 victory.“It was the biggest game of our lives,” Freeman said. “We were 5-0 and then they tied it, which wasn’t ideal. But we’ve been doing it like this all year.”The Dodgers left runners hanging in scoring position in the sixth, eighth and ninth, showing why they were a .500 club in one-run games this year. Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire As Buehler stabilized, the Dodgers pushed. Another leadoff walk, this to Yasmani Grandal in the fifth, set up Taylor for a two-run, one-out homer that made it 5-4. Gausman left in favor of lefty Max Fried, who left a 2-and-2 curveball high to Max Muncy, who swatted it out to right field for a tie game.The Dodgers loomed again in the sixth when Matt Kemp bounced a double over the left-field wall and was at third when Hernandez came up with one out. The Braves played the infield in, and shortstop Charlie Culberson fired home to get Kemp on the contact play.But rookie Touki Touissant walked Grandal and pinch-hitter Yasiel Puig to load the bases. The Braves survived when Taylor bounced out to third base.That ended the night for Buehler, who had mowed down 10 consecutive Braves after Acuña’s blast. Reliever Alex Wood threw one pitch and it landed in the right-field seats, just in front of a steakhouse, after it made an intermediate stop against the bat of Freddie Freeman. That put the Braves up 6-5, which, as unlikely as it seemed, is where it stood. Milwaukee is already in the National League Championship Series, beginning Friday there. The Dodgers lead this series, 2-1, but were hoping to check this box as soon as possible. They will start Rich Hill in Monday’s Game 4 against Mike Foltynecwicz, who lasted only two innings in Game 1 on ThursdayThe Dodgers were aiming their most lethal weapon at the Braves. Walker Buehler had a 2.03 ERA after the All-Star break and, for the season, had a 0.92 WHIP. That was the lowest for a rookie pitcher since 1913.The Braves responded with Sean Newcomb, who was 12-9 in his first full season and had no reason to fear the Dodgers.On July 29 Newcomb needed only 2 hours, 47 minutes to dominate them. The Dodgers had won the previous three games, but did not get a hit off the left-hander until Chris Taylor’s single on a 2-and-2 pitch with two out in the ninth.Newcomb was perfect that day until he walked Yasiel Puig in the sixth. He also delivered 134 pitches, which may or may not explain why Newcomb was 2-4 the rest of the season and his ERA jumped from 3.23 to 3.90. Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season center_img Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start The Angels made him the 15th pick of the 2014 draft, and he quickly became their only player in Baseball America’s top 100 minor league rankings.But new Angels general manager Billy Eppler dealt Newcomb, shortstop Erick Aybar and pitcher Chris Ellis to the Braves for shortstop Andrelton Simmons and catcher Jose Briceno.Newcomb and Buehler did their thing for an inning and a half, with Buehler downing the Braves in only five pitches in the first.Then the guardrails came off.First, home plate began moving alarmingly on Buehler, although the strict interpretations of home umpire Gary Cederstrom didn’t help. Buehler walked Nick Markakis, who got to third when Ozzie Albies singled with two out and center fielder Cody Bellinger made an error. The Dodgers intentionally walked Charlie Culberson to get to Newcomb, who was a grand 3 for 72 for his career at the plate.It didn’t matter. Buehler walked him on four pitches, and Markakis came home with the first Braves run in the 19 and two-thirds innings of the series.The next four runs were a little more sudden. Acuña took three balls, thought he’d gotten a fourth and took a premature step to first, then settled on a 98 mph, 3-and-1 fastball that he blasted into the left-field seats.At 20, he became the youngest player to hit a slam in the postseason. The previous youngest was Mickey Mantle in the 1953 World Series.The Dodgers began scrubbing away that lead in the third inning when Kiké Hernandez battled for a leadoff walk. A two-out walk to Taylor was the end of the line for Newcomb, who had pitched two innings in Game 1.Kevin Gausman’s arrival was greeted by Justin Turner’s base hit, which became a two-run play when left fielder Acuña let the ball skip past.Related Articles Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

first_img– Advertisement – As Liberians prepare for presidential and legislative elections in October this year, divisive politics with the propensity to stir up conflict is overwhelmingly emerging. Partisans of the Unity Party are accused of allegedly preaching ethnic-based politics to influence voters in support of Joseph Boakai. Liberty Party supporters have it all on social media that Boakai’s supporters have taken the trend of ethnic politics to divide Liberians.A few weeks ago, some members of the House of Representatives endorsed Boakai as the best person to succeed President Sirleaf. During the ceremony, the spokesperson, Representative Larry P. Younquoi of Nimba County District #8, stated on radio that a minority cannot rule the majority in a democracy, and since the natives are in the majority, they must be the ones to lead the country. Also recently declaring his support for Joseph Boakai in the upcoming election, Nimba County Senator Prince Johnson said they are going to launch a “Democratic coup d’état” to ensure that an indigenous man takes the presidency.While the political leader of the Movement for Economic Empowerment (MOVEEE), Dr. J. Mills Jones, was speaking at the commencement program of the African Methodist Episcopal University (AMEU) last week, he emphasized that Liberia’s problem was not the ethnic divide, but the failure to institute good governance.Why are all these sentiments of division coming up during election season, when we should be seeking a well qualified, patriotic and competent Liberian to occupy the presidency? One reason to point out here is the failure of the Ellen Johnson Sirleaf administration to attach seriousness to reconciliation after taking over a country devastated by years of war.There are several historical factors which should have compelled the Ellen Government to pay serious attention to reconciliation. There are, for example, still people in Liberia who can give either eyewitness or oral accounts of the 1930s forced labor saga (Fernando Po Crisis) that led to the forced resignation of President C.D.B. King. This issue was a part of the long-term political and economic deprivation perpetrated by the True Whig Party in this country that exacerbated Liberia’s ethnic divide. After 133 years of rule, the True Whig Party government was toppled, President William R. Tolbert Jr. and several of his topmost officials executed.As the 1980 coup leader, Master Sergeant Samuel K. Doe, well established himself in power as the elected president (in the 1985 rigged elections), tribalism became a national symbol, and anyone who was not Krahn became stigmatized. The Gio and Mano peoples of Nimba became a target for innocent killings. Most of the Gios and Manos, too, were always seen as party to any coup attempt on the president. This tribal collision led Charles Taylor to see Nimbaians as the disenchanted group to be used to fight in retaliation for ethnic killings by the Doe regime. In 1989 Taylor launched his invasion in Buutuo, Nimba County, enlisting several Gios and Manos, while the majority of AFL Soldiers were members of the Krahn tribe. Samuel Doe was killed under the command of Prince Johnson, a son of Nimba. The war resulted not only in Doe’s death. Nimbaians also slaughtered their own people on mere animosity and setup, Jackson Fiah Doe, Stephen B. Daniels, David Toweh, D. Gborboe Dwayen, Isaac Vaye and John Yormie being some eminent Nimbaians among the victims. Dr. Steve Yekehson, president of the University of Liberia, was also killed by fighters of the National Patriotic Front of Liberia. The United Liberation Movement (ULIMO-K), under the command of Alhaji G.V. Kromah, used chainsaws (otherwise known as power-saws) to kill a lot of people in Lofa, with their intestines used as checkpoints. Fighters of the Liberia Peace Council (LPC), commanded by George Boley, killed countless people in the southeast and raped countless women. The latest factions to go against the Taylor regime were the Liberia United for Reconciliation and Democracy (LURD) and Movement for Democracy in Liberia (MODEL) led by Seku Damatè Konneh and Thomas Yayah Nimley respectively. They too killed people and destroyed properties.Amid this horrendous and tragic series of events, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, whom Liberians and the world counted on to heal the country, admitted in her last Annual Message that she had failed to reconcile Liberians and also failed to fight corruption. It is one of the gravest of misfortunes for the poor Liberian people that their economic marginalization was exacerbated during her regime, as she gave an upper-hand to her families, friends and foreign businesspeople, including Lebanese and Indians.Are these issues not enough to make any leader attach importance to reconciliation?Nelson Mandela said, “Revolution without reconciliation is not a revolution.” The Daily Observer believes that as long as genuine reconciliation among Liberians remains ignored, and perpetrators of atrocities still boast of being liberators and intellectualizing their actions, divisive ethnic politics, tribalism and sectionalism will continue to dominate our body politic, and Liberia’s peace will continue to remain fragile.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
