DODGERS exploded and eliminated PADRES 12-3



THIS IS HOW DODGERS ELIMINATED THE PADRES:

SAN DIEGO and LOS ANGELES met in Game 3 this past Thursday, with a huge score in favor of the DODGERS 12-3. With this victory, Los Angeles team won the Divisional Series undefeated, accumulating 3 victories in a row. 

NOW the DODGERS will face the BRAVOS for the National Conference  title beginning this coming Monday. The BRAVOS also beat the MARLINS 7-0 to win their series undefeated.

The teams from SAN DIEGO and LOS ANGELES played the second game of the DIVISIONAL SERIES of the MLB WEST COAST  with a victory for the DODGERS over SAN DIEGO PADRES 6-5. 

It was a close game all the way until the last out. On the ninth, the PADRES filled the bases and with two outs, reliever Kelly, who had gotten into trouble that inning, finally got the 27th out, a ground ball to second to save the DODGERS´second victory in a row. 

In this game again SAN DIEGO started winning 1-0 with a run scored in the second inning, but the DODGERS scored 3 runs in the next inning, added one more in the 4th and remained on top during the rest of the game.  

Clayton Kershaw won his second game of the postseason despite allowing two straight home runs in the sixth inning. He was relieved when the game was 4-3 in favor of the Los Angeles team. Kelly was the last reliever tonight for the DODGERS. 


On the first game between these two teams, It wasn´t until the sixth inning that the DODGERS´ bats woke up. On the inning before the "Angelinos" had tied the game 1-1, taking advantage of a PADRES error on a wild throw to first base. 

On that explosive 6th inning, they added 4 more runs, after receiving 2 more bases on balls. By the 6th, the Padre´s had given a total of 11 free passports to first base! The last 3 of them, the DODGERS converted into runs. 

Actually the manager of the PADRES was thrown out of the game precisely for arguing and using obscene language towards the home plate umpire when protesting about the way he was calling balls and strikes. 



In the 2nd inning of that gameDODGERS starter Buehler had also walked 3 PADRES in a row! But with the bases loaded, San Diego couldn't take advantage of the gift, as its next two hitters struck out!

MEXICO BEAT NETHERLANDS 1-0

 

The Mexican National Team beat the Netherlands on a penalty kick scored by Raul Jimenez. 

It was a close game, very disputed and not at all boring, the one that was played in Holland this wednesday October 7 with the victory of the Mexican National Soccer Team 1-0.  

Mexico followed exactly what their coach wanted. The 4-3-3 scheme of the Argentine “Tata” Martino paid off. Mexico also demonstrated an impeccable defensive line that with the help of the halfbacks kept the "Orange Machine" offense at zero.

A direct kick on the second half,  in which it seemed that a couple of Mexican players were offside (but not reviewable as it was a friendly match and there was no VAR), produced a foul on Raúl Jiménez inside the penalty area. The same player kicked the penalty and scored the only goal of the match in favor of MEXICO. Raúl sent the ball to the opposite side chosen by the great goalkeeper Timothy Krul , yes, the same goalkeeper who entered the game in the last seconds of the Netherlands vs Costa Rica match in the World Cup Brazil 2014 and stopped 2 penalties to give his team the pass to the semifinals in that tournament.


Precisely Raúl Jiménez in this game, had already missed two opportunities to score in the first minutes of the game. Likewise, "Tecatito" Corona, the best player in the game for Mexico, also failed to score a couple of times in the second half.  The best chance was when he received a masterful pass into the area from Hector Herrera, but Krul on that occasion rejected the shot from point blank by Corona  who really deserved a goal for what he did on the field.

The "Orange Machine" also had its opportunities, not as much as Mexico, but they did arise, especially in the last minutes when Netherlands had better control of the game, but the good performance of the mexican goalie Alfredo Talavera and the lack of aim by Netherlands offensive line, left the final score 1-0 in favor of Mexico National Team

The next game for Mexico will be next Tuesday October 14 against Argelia, the African Champion.
