McLeod Shines, Sends No. 8 Sam Houston State to Thursday’s Action

first_imgMcLeod set the tone early for the kind of night she had in store for her side. The junior from Austin, Texas, struck out her first three batters faced swinging. She did not allow a hit until the fourth inning with two outs when the Ladyjacks’ right fielder Autumn Holloway popped one over to shallow right-field. She tallied 11 strikeouts and gave up just three hits for the game.The Bearkats took advantage of an SFA error in the bottom of the third inning when SFA catcher Taylor Fraccastoro threw it at third base searching for teammate Amber Landry to pick off Sam Houston’s third baseman Katie Andrie. The ball went past and Andrie came home easily for the 1-0 lead. The Ladyjacks’ leftfielder Madison Selman hit a ground rule double to centerfield with one out in the fifth, but McLeod caught back-to-back batters swinging to hold the lead for the Bearkats. Sam Houston capitalized on its opportunities in the bottom frame, highlighted by second baseman Brooke Malia’s two-run shot to centerfield to score her and shortstop Tiffany Thompson. The Bearkats had picked up a run right before when Thompson singled to right field to bring Andrie home for her second run of the day. In the bottom of the sixth inning, Taylar Fuselier entered the game to pinch hit for left fielder Samantha Belongia, and she drove in two insurance runs on a triple to right-field.center_img Tournament Central | Box Score | Highlights | ReplayLAKE CHARLES, La. – A lights out night for Sam Houston State’s right-handed pitcher Lindsey McLeod advanced the Bearkats at the 2018 Southland Conference Softball Tournament at Joe Miller Field in Lake Charles, La.In the first Southland Softball Tournament with eight teams in 30 years, the No. 8 seed defeated No. 2 Stephen F.

Jurgen Klopp bemoans fresh injury to Liverpool defender Joel Matip

first_img 3 The German chief said it ‘was not cool’ to see the centre-back come off just 22 minutes into the International Champions Cup clash in Charlotte, USA.Liverpool lost the game, with Klopp’s former team coming from a goal behind to win 3-1.Goalkeeper Lorius Karius was also guilty of another mistake in the Reds’ net, but Klopp said Matip’s injury blow was “the most negative thing about the day”.The Cameroon international has only just returned to action after his 2017/18 season was cut short by a thigh injury which required surgery.Klopp played down concerns the issue was a recurrence of the previous problem, saying it was a “little tear”, and the player will be monitored over the next few days.“It’s not the same injury. It’s another muscle – it looks like, hopefully, only a little tear,” the manager said at his post-match press conference, quoted on the club’s website. Joel Matip has only just returned from an injury that ended his season in March Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp vented his frustration after defender Joel Matip limped out of a pre-season friendly against Borussia Dortmund with a fresh injury problem.

Things like this can happen, but you don’t want them to.“Maybe on Monday or Tuesday we will know more, but in this moment we only know that it was too painful for him to carry on.”Matip’s last appearance of 2017/18 came in March, with the Cameroon centre-back sustaining a thigh injury against Crystal Palace in the Premier League and subsequently going under the knife.He made his return to action in Liverpool’s 0-0 friendly against Bury on July 14 and then started in the 2-0 win over Blackburn.Liverpool took the lead against Borussia Dortmund through a fine Virgil van Dijk header from Andrew Robertson’s cross.But Dortmund stormed back with American starlet Christian Pulisic – previously linked with a move to Anfield – scoring twice.center_img 3 Liverpool-linked Pulisic scores from the spot The 19-year-old first converted a penalty after being fouled by James Milner and then fired into the bottom-left corner from the edge of the box in the 89th minute.Karius was then at the centre of attention against as the Bundesliga side snatched a third goal three minutes into stoppage time, Jacob Bruun Larsen tapping home after the German goalkeeper parried a Pulisic’s shot right into his path. 3last_img read more
