If we improve compared to last year, we also have a great chance of holding something in our hands in the end.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… Erling Haaland is backing teenage sensation Youssoufa Moukoko to break through the ranks at Borussia Dortmund as he warned Bundesliga opponents to be weary of the emerging talent. Norwegian striker Haaland turned 20 in July and has already established himself among the top marksmen in the German topflight. His 13 goals in 15 Bundesliga games since arriving in mid-season from Salzburg came amid a overall tally of 44 goals in 40 appearances, split between the two clubs. Cameroon-born striker Moukoko has played for Germany at under-16 level and has also appeared for Dortmund in the Under-19 Bundesliga and the UEFA Youth League.Haaland, quoted in the Westfalische Rundschau newspaper, suggested he would rather keep pressure off the prodigy.“But it’s hard when he’s that good,” Haaland said. “I don’t think I’ve ever seen a 15-year-old that good.”Dortmund have stated their expectation that Jadon Sancho will stay at the club next season, amid strong interest from Manchester United.They are looking to build a side to challenge Bayern Munich, and the emergence of Moukoko in the coming seasons could be important. It means it will be Haaland to whom Dortmund look for their chief goal threat in the new campaign, but youngster Moukoko could also have a part to play. Moukoko is 15 and has been a revelation at youth level, while also training with the Dortmund first team. He is with the Dortmund squad this week at their training camp in Bad Ragaz, Switzerland, and will be eligible to play senior football when he turns 16 on November 20. Haaland said: “He’s a lot better than I was when I was 15. He trains at Borussia Dortmund and keeps up. I was in my home club, Bryne FK, when I was 15. You can’t compare that.” Advertisementlast_img read more

Dodgers’ bullpen strategy falters in 3-2 loss to Marlins

first_img Dodgers’ Dave Roberts says baseball’s unwritten rules ‘have changed, should change’ “Obviously Kenley’s our closer,” Roberts said. “To extend the game, does that give us the best chance? Absolutely.“But having three guys down and having a short guy (Adam Liberatore) and (Scott) Alexander left, to use (Baez) who was hot prior and to burn him essentially if we don’t use him right there, I felt good about going with Petey.”Jansen was in the bullpen but never even stood up to throw. He didn’t seem to take it personally.“It happens,” he said. “Sometimes you gamble. It didn’t go our way. We lose together. We win again tomorrow, we pick that one for all of us again tomorrow.”The Dodgers fell to 11-11, while the Marlins (6-17) snapped a five-game losing streak. The series concludes Wednesday at Dodger Stadium. Dodgers’ hot-hitting Corey Seager leaves game with back injury – Dietrich went to second base. With two outs, Cingrani fell behind Starlin Castro 2-and-0. He missed over the plate with a fastball and Castro capitalized, pummeling a double into left field. Dietrich scored easily, tying the score at 2.All of it undid another stellar outing by Dodgers starter Kenta Maeda. The right-hander allowed one run over six innings. He held the Marlins to four hits while walking one batter and striking out seven.Maeda’s one costly mistake was a first-pitch fastball down the middle of the plate to J.T. Realmuto in the third inning. Realmuto crushed the pitch 402 feet to right-center field for a home run, his second this season.For seven innings, that was the Marlins’ only run.“I was pretty efficient throughout the whole outing and I was able to really attack the hitters,” Maeda said.Maeda has fanned 31 batters in a mere 20-1/3 innings. Only 11 National League pitchers have more strikeouts, and all of them have made five starts to Maeda’s four.The Dodgers drew first blood when Matt Kemp and Austin Barnes led off the second inning with back-to-back doubles. They did not trail until the ninth inning.The score was tied 1-1 in the seventh inning when the Dodgers staged a two-out rally against Miami relievers Nick Wittgren and Tayron Guerrero.Wittgren walked Joc Pederson and allowed a single to Chris Taylor. Guerrero, a flame-throwing right-hander, then walked Seager to load the bases.Chase Utley pinch hit for Kiké Hernandez and saw six pitches from Guerrero. He took one for a strike, fouled off another, and watched the other four elude Mark Ripperger’s strike zone, working a walk to force in Pederson with the go-ahead run. The Dodgers led 2-1 with six outs to go.Roberts said that three relievers who pitched the night before – J.T. Chargois, Josh Fields and Ross Stripling – were unavailable. But why did he choose Baez over Jansen for the ninth inning?Related Articles Dodgers bench slumping Cody Bellinger for a day PreviousLOS ANGELES, CA – APRIL 24: Brad Ziegler #29 and J.T.

(Photo by Sean M. Haffey/Getty Images)ExpandLOS ANGELES — The oohs and aahs Kenta Maeda heard for six innings Tuesday morphed into boos for Pedro Baez in the ninth.It’s a familiar sequence of sounds in these parts, but familiarity is no antidote for frustration. The Dodgers have lost 11 games this season, but perhaps none were as infuriating as their 3-2 loss at the hands of the Miami Marlins.Kenley Jansen was available to pitch the ninth inning of a 2-2 game, but Manager Dave Roberts chose Baez instead. Baez, the embattled reliever who lost six games a year ago – and effectively lost his job as a set-up man in September – lost for the first time in 2018 when Brian Anderson greeted him with a single and Cameron Maybin followed with an RBI double.The boos rained down two batters in, the game decided. Dodgers’ Justin Turner looking rejuvenated on defense “That was a decision that didn’t work out,” Roberts said. “I take full responsibility.”The eighth inning might have been more frustrating. With one out, Derek Dietrich punched a line drive just past Corey Seager’s reach into center field for a single. Tony Cingrani, a left-handed pitcher, threw over to first base to keep Dietrich close but was penalized for committing a balk.Joe West, the first base umpire, told a pool reporter that Cingrani stepped toward home plate before throwing the ball to first baseman Cody Bellinger.“There’s nothing I can do about it,” West said. “He jumped. Nobody’s looking to call a balk there … if it doesn’t jump out at you. That’s why I called it. You saw how fast I (expletive) called it. You hate that you have to do it, but you can’t let them cheat.”Cingrani said the move did not constitute a balk, “but he called it a balk, so it’s a balk. It’s like a ball being called a strike, and a strike being called a ball.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Whicker: Dustin May yet another example of the Dodgers’ eye for pitching last_img read more
