Los Angeles catcher hits go-ahead shot against namesake Atlanta reliever in win
Dodgers catcher Will Smith hit a go-ahead, three-run homer off the Atlanta reliever with the same name, Corey Seager homered twice and Los Angeles avoided elimination with a 7-3 win in Game 5 of the NL Championship Series on Friday night.
Mookie Betts got that decisive sixth started with an infield single, and the first-year Dodger and former AL MVP had a running, shoestring catch in right field that turned into an inning-ending double play. His catch-and-throw took an Atlanta run off the board after a replay challenge right before Seager’s first homer.
Game 6 is Saturday afternoon, with a pitching rematch from the series opener: lefty Max Fried for Atlanta and right-hander Walker Buehler for the Dodgers. Both gave up one run in Game 1, which Atlanta won 5-1 after a four-run ninth.
Blake Treinen, the third of seven Dodgers pitchers and the Game 1 loser in relief, pitched two perfect innings for the win. Inconsistent closer Kenley Jansen struck out the side in a non-save situation to end it.
Betts had a stolen base after his sixth-starting single before Justin Turner’s one-out hard grounder that got Betts caught in a rundown. Atlanta then brought in their lefty named Will Smith to face left-handed batter Max Muncy, who drew a walk before the Dodgers’ catcher named Will Smith hit a full-count pitch 404 feet to left-centre for a 4-2 lead.
It was the first time since at least 1961 that a batter homered off a pitcher with the same name in the regular season or post-season, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
Now, this is a story all about how<br>This game got flipped-turned upside down <a href=”https://t.co/tDEwHIlxgz”>pic.twitter.com/tDEwHIlxgz</a>
The Dodgers extended their lead in the seventh when Chris Taylor hit a two-out double, and scored on a single by Betts before Seager hit a ball into LA’s bullpen in right-centre.
Seager’s four homers and 10 RBIs have already tied NLCS records, with at least one more game for the Dodgers to play — two if they want a chance to get to the World Series for the third time in four years.
Taylor later appeared to turn an ankle in left field during the eighth inning but remained in the game.
After Marcell Ozuna and Travis d’Arnaud had consecutive singles to start the third for Atlanta, there was one out when Dansby Swanson hit a sinking liner to right. Betts made a running catch, with his glove skimming the ground before his throw home was late. But the Dodgers challenged that Ozuna that left third base early — and it became Atlanta’s third out instead of its third run.
Umpires and the off-site replay crew needed nearly two minutes to make their ruling, but Dodgers fielders — and even Atlanta runners — had already left the field after watching the play on the big video board.
Right after that, Seager’s leadoff homer to straightaway centre in the fourth cut the Dodgers deficit to 2-1.
Rookie centre fielder Cristian Pache made a leaping try at the wall, but the ball went just behind his extended glove. But Pache did time things up in the eighth, robbing Muncy of a homer with a nearly identical play.
Atlanta scored in both innings off LA starter Dustin May. Freddie Freeman doubled, went to third and scored on d’Arnaud’s sacrifice fly in the first, and Pache had an RBI single in the second. D’Arnaud added an RBI groundout in the eighth.
Friends and former Oilers remember beloved local sports figure Joey Moss
‘He was a close friend and he made me smile each day,’ Wayne Gretzky says
Reaction from across Edmonton and the hockey world is pouring in for beloved local sports figure Joey Moss.
Moss, 57, died on Monday afternoon. He was a locker room attendant for the Edmonton Oilers and Edmonton Football Team for decades and was inducted into the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame in 2015.
Moss, who was born with Down syndrome, got his start with the Oilers during the 1984-85 season after Wayne Gretzky noticed him catching a bus in the winter and convinced the team’s general manager, Glen Sather, to find a role for him in the locker room.
Gretzky told CBC Edmonton Tuesday he has heard from many other former Oilers talk about how much the longtime local sports presence did for all of them.
“He’s a special young man,” Gretzky.
“He was a close friend and he made me smile each day and those are things I won’t forget.”
Today I’m saddened to say I lost a good friend!! I have some great memories with Joey during my time <a href=”https://twitter.com/EdmontonOilers?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw”>@edmontonoilers</a> You made me smile everyday I was with you. You will be missed!! RIP <a href=”https://t.co/octqhvAD3k”>pic.twitter.com/octqhvAD3k</a>
Gretzky quickly developed a bond with Moss, partly because he had an aunt in his family who also had Down syndrome. The two lived together for a year and a half while Gretzky played for the Oilers. But his memories of Moss don’t just revolve around what he did for the Oilers, Gretzky said, adding that Moss was an inspiration for parents of children with disabilities.
With the greatest of all-time… and #99. Oil Country sure won’t be the same without you, Joey. Thanks for always brightening up any day and may you rest easy my friend. <a href=”https://t.co/p7yGRqTdbk”>pic.twitter.com/p7yGRqTdbk</a>
Moss was also remembered by former members of the Oilers’ training staff who shared their condolences and memories of him on Tuesday.
“I really feel like he made everyone in that room a better person when he left that room,” said former equipment manager Lyle ‘Sparky’ Kulchisky, who said he was thankful to see Moss in hospital on Sunday to say goodbye.
We loss a legend in the <a href=”https://twitter.com/EdmontonOilers?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw”>@EdmontonOilers</a> family! Joey I will miss you and will never forget the precious years we spent together, our wrestling matches, when you sang La Bamba and many more memories! Rest In Peace my friend! <a href=”https://t.co/YecYfMxfSp”>pic.twitter.com/YecYfMxfSp</a>
“He wasn’t afraid to bark back at any player, it didn’t matter who they were whether it was the coach or Wayne or whoever,” Stafford said.
“He was just a ball of joy and happiness and he passed that on all the time.”
Mayor Don Iveson was emotional when talking about Moss’ death on Tuesday, calling it heartbreaking news for the city.
“As mayor, I got to meet him a number of times and (he’s) just a delightful human being, and it’s sad,” Iveson said.
“He was a great guy, so the loss is deeply felt in our city today.”
During his life, Moss was honoured with the NHL Alumni Association’s “Seventh Man Award” for behind-the-scene efforts in the lives of others, the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal and a mural in Edmonton for his work with both of the city’s major sports teams.
Twitter users shared their own memories of Moss on Tuesday, both as an inspirational and motivating figure, and as a community member in Edmonton.

Chef de mission McBean tells athletes to keep course in buildup to 2021 Olympics
3-time gold medallist familiar with adversity, says goals remain unchanged
When Marnie McBean heard a knee ligament ‘pop’ just months before the 1992 Summer Olympics, she thought her Games were over.
She overcame the hurdle and went on to win two gold medals in rowing that summer in Barcelona.
McBean brings first-hand experience of conquering challenges to her role as Canadian chef de mission at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics. But rather than offering motivational talks for athletes as they train during the COVID-19 pandemic, McBean is encouraging them to focus on what they can do each day.
The IOC and Tokyo organizers recently provided a lengthy virtual presentation on the Games for the over 200 chefs de mission around the world. McBean said she was pleased to hear they’re examining how all kinds of events are being run during the pandemic – from well-financed competitions to those with limited funding – and studying what has and hasn’t worked.
Many Olympic qualifications and test events are on tap this spring.
“We’ll see the counter-measures being tested then,” she told The Canadian Press from Toronto. “That’s when things are going to start moving from the in-pencil page over to the ink page.”
McBean called the IOC/Tokyo update a “massive presentation” with a lot of information. She liked how organizers framed the Games – now scheduled to begin July 23, 2021 – as being “simple, safe and secure.”
“One of the things that we took from this is that we feel really great that everything that was coming out is very much in line with a lot of the plans that we’re anticipating for Team Canada,” McBean said. “There’s a lot going on and there’s still a lot of unknown.”
Many big Olympic questions still remain unanswered. Specifics on how the Games will actually run – with thousands of athletes, officials, media members and broadcasters set to descend on Japan next summer – may not come until next year.
Pandemic developments over the coming months and their impact on sport are tough to predict. In the meantime, athletes are doing their best to maintain their training levels.
McBean has kept busy connecting virtually with hundreds of athletes and notes they’ve been making big gains even though competitions were postponed.
McBean wants athletes to “turn up the volume” on the positive things that are happening in their lives. That could mean improved training sessions, getting through injuries, or even just communicating more with family.
“I’ve been telling my stories of my Olympic Games for like 20-plus years and they’re going to be telling this story for 20-plus years,” McBean said. “And so this is their story. Figure out how to be proud of the story that they’re living right now.”
She compared the situation to using a navigation app that is always recalculating while trying to figure out the best route to a destination.
“Take the next step,” McBean said. “You might not know what 20 steps from now is going to be but you know what the next step is going to be. You know what today is. You know you’re preparing for excellent competition. And the rest of the steps will be determined as we recalculate and figure it out.”
Another one of her main messages for athletes is that they are “going to come through this,” so be prepared to soar.
“I’m a rower. Somebody always wins when the conditions are terrible,” she said. “And so you want to make sure that you’re the person who can do that.”
Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City mayor call for Raptors to make Missouri new home
2019 NBA champions face federal U.S. border restrictions if playing out of Toronto
Some of Kansas City’s most famous residents want to call the Toronto Raptors their home team.
On the heels of reports the NBA season will tip off Dec. 22, and with federal and provincial restrictions around COVID-19 potentially keeping the Raptors out of Scotiabank Arena, there’s been rampant speculation about where the 2019 NBA champions will play.
Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas and Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and offensive lineman Laurent Duvernay-Tardif took to social media to advocate for the Raptors to play there.
Mahomes, the 2020 Super Bowl MVP, posted on Twitter “Bring them to KC!” with a flexed-arm emoji, to which Mayor Lucas replied: “Working on it.”
Bring them to KC! 💪🏽 <a href=”https://t.co/di5r6bIAh7″>https://t.co/di5r6bIAh7</a>
On Tuesday morning, the mayor wrote: “Good morning, Kansas City! It’s currently 13 degrees colder here than in Toronto (7 degrees Celsius),” with the hashtag “We the North.”
The Chiefs’ right guard Duvernay-Tardif, a medical school graduate from Quebec who opted out of the NFL season due to concerns around COVID-19, replied: “Merci monsieur! Definitely feels like home,” with a happy face.
Merci monsieur! Definitely feels like home 😉 <a href=”https://t.co/PDnVRVGoWC”>https://t.co/PDnVRVGoWC</a>
The T-Mobile Center in Kansas City has close to 19,000 seats for basketball. The 13-year-old downtown arena has hosted games in the NCAA women’s and men’s basketball championships as well as NBA and NHL pre-season games.
Kansas City, Louisville, Ky., Hartford, Conn., and the New York area have been some of the suggestions as temporary home courts for Toronto.
Raptors spokesperson Jennifer Quinn, however, told The Canadian Press on Tuesday “Our focus is on playing in Toronto.”
All three Canadian Major League Soccer teams have been playing recent home games in the United States. Toronto FC is in East Hartford, Conn., the Montreal Impact are in Harrison, N.J., and the Vancouver Whitecaps are in Portland.
TFC coach Greg Vanney told reporters Tuesday he’d love to have the Raptors in Connecticut.
“I don’t think our hotel could accommodate both of us at the same time, but it would be great to have them nearby,” Vanney said.
The Connecticut experience has been excellent, the coach said.
“For me… it’s the living situation, and the field,” Vanney said. “Those are the most important things, and so far the place that we’ve been staying has been phenomenal in terms of the living conditions, the food and everything has been great.”
He said some of the fields have been “touch and go” as the weather gets colder.
Toronto FC’s hotel is across the street from the XL Center in Hartford, a potential home arena for the Raptors. It seats around 16,000 for University of Connecticut basketball games, and is also home to the Hartford Wolf Pack of the American Hockey League.
The Harry A. Gampel Pavilion in nearby Storrs, Conn., seats just over 10,000 and also hosts some UConn basketball games.
The Raptors haven’t played a game at Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena since Feb. 28, a 99-96 loss to Charlotte. The 2019 NBA champions were ousted in the second round of the playoffs by Boston once the season resumed in the NBA bubble at Walt Disney World in Florida.
McMaster University athletics has clear culture of systemic anti-Black racism: report
The newly-released report ‘revealed extremely concerning experiences’ from student-athletes
A report reviewing Black students’ experiences in McMaster University’s athletics department shows “a culture of systemic anti-Black racism has existed and continues to exist.”
The newly-released report “revealed extremely concerning experiences” from student-athletes.
“This culture has been harmful and traumatizing to current and former Black student-athletes, many of whom continue to struggle with the impact of their experience long after graduation, including through reports of long-term mental health impacts,” the report said.
The review comes after John Williams, a former Hamilton Tiger-Cats player, and Fabion Foote, a defensive lineman with the Toronto Argonauts and a former football player at the university, shared their experiences of racism within the department on social media.
The task force overseeing the review included:
Students share experiences of racism
The review included students who attended as early as 2010 and included group interviews with current and former Black student athletes. Other student athletes and staff, like coaches and administrators, were also interviewed.
Black football players and non-Black football players had their own group interviews.
Seventy-two people participated in the review, 70 per cent of whom were current students or staff.
Some of the examples of racism included a “jail-break” themed party where “white players dressed up as ‘criminals’ with cornrow braids in their hair. Others described being called racial slurs and being the subject of derogatory comments.
“My coach once called me King Kong or Donkey Kong. I kind of laughed it off because I didn’t know how to react, but when I got home, I cried about it because I felt like an animal. It hurt a lot because I felt weak, and I felt like I couldn’t do anything about it because this is my coach. This is the person that determines whether or not I play,” read a participant’s comment.
More examples include involvement with police. In one instance, administration allowed police access to a student-athlete for a crime investigation they weren’t linked to.
Another instance includes campus staff and police breaking up a pick-up basketball game organized by an NBA star because they asked for 20 minutes of extra court time.
Black-student athletes added they didn’t get the same quality treatment or opportunities as white athletes. They also emphasized an absence of mental health supports aimed at Black student-athletes and the issues they face.
Athletes have been ‘harmed and traumatized’
The report says the department’s culture has “harmed and traumatized” student-athletes.
“This culture is evident in explicit and implicit examples of anti-Black racism. It is also evident in a widespread lack of awareness, education, understanding, empathy and of an all-important systemic view of issues related to race and inclusivity that impact the experience of Black student-athletes.”
“And, while systemic anti-Black racism is an endemic problem in McMaster’s Athletics Department, there seems to have been very little done to change the culture, and many missed opportunities and refusals to address it as this culture still exists today.”
Some of the primary gaps include:
School president apologizes
Staff and coaches in the report acknowledged more needs to be done.
President David Farrar issued an apology in a letter to students.
“On behalf of the University I apologize for the anti-Black racism you experienced. I am deeply sorry that effective action was not taken to prevent this; there are no excuses for the behaviour you endured,” read his note.
“I assure you that we are listening and that action is already being taken to implement the report’s recommendations and to begin the work with the Department and the broader university community to help us eliminate systemic racism.”
McMaster has five-point plan to address issues
The school has an action plan to address the issues.
The pillars of the plan include:
- Increasing representation through talent development and hiring processes.
- Creating a culture of accountability through updating policies and forming a Black Student-Athlete Council.
- Targeted supports and scholarships by creating a Black Student Services Advisor role and providing them an office.
- Advocacy roles and mechanisms.
- Training and education.
World 100m champ Christian Coleman to miss Tokyo Olympics after ban for missing doping tests
U.S. sprinter was provisionally suspended in June for missing 3 doping tests
World 100-metre champion Christian Coleman will miss next year’s Tokyo Olympics after being banned for two years for breaching whereabouts rules, the Athletics Integrity Unit said Tuesday.
The American sprinter had claimed at the time that anti-doping officials had not followed procedure when he missed them after going Christmas shopping on Dec. 9, 2019 at a time when he had said he would be at home.
“We impose on the athlete a period of ineligibility of two years, which will end on May 13, 2022” the AIU said in a statement on its website. “The decision may be appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.”
Three failures to properly file whereabouts information or being absent during the hour stated in a 12-month period can result in a one- or two-year suspension.
Coleman, also a silver medallist in the 100 and 4×100 relay at the 2017 worlds, escaped suspension last year when the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), after receiving guidance from the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) on how to calculate the 12-month window for three missed tests, withdrew the charge.
The sprinter later demanded an apology from USADA, but two of those misses have now combined with the latest failure to result in a ban.
Ottawa cyclist Michael Woods wins 7th stage of Spanish Vuelte race
Moves to 48th overall after 2nd 1st-place finish of this year’s event
Ottawa cyclist Michael Woods won the seventh stage of the Spanish Vuelta on Tuesday, finishing the hilly 159.7-kilometre route from Vitoria-Gasteiz to Valdegovia in three hours 48 minutes 16 seconds.
Woods, who finished second in Sunday’s sixth stage, improved to 48th overall with the win.
The EF Pro Cycling rider accelerated in the final climb of the day and outraced Spanish cyclists Omar Fraile (Astana) and Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) to take his second La Vuelta stage win.
Ecuador’s Richard Carapaz held on to the overall leader’s red jersey. He leads Britain’s Hugh John Carthy by 18 seconds.
Woods also won a stage in the 2018 edition of the race, when he joined Ryder Hesjedal as the only Canadians to claim a stage in the Vuelta, traditionally the third Grand Tour race on the calendar.
An emotional Woods outlasted the field in a demanding 157-kilometre Stage 17 of the 2018 Vuelta, dedicating the win to his stillborn son, who died earlier in the year when his wife was 37 weeks pregnant. They have since celebrated the birth of daughter Max (Maxine).
Masters Par 3 contest cancelled at spectator-free November tourney
ESPN’s GameDay college football pre-game show added to attract new audience
The Par 3 Contest is out at the spectator-free Masters in November.
ESPN’s “College GameDay” is in.
Augusta National announced Tuesday more changes to a Masters tournament that will be unlike any of the previous 83. The most unusual of all is ESPN’s popular college football pre-game show taking place on a stage that overlooks Ike’s Pond and the ninth green of the Par 3 course.
“When exploring ways to showcase a fall Masters, we were drawn to the concept of hosting ‘College GameDay’ at Augusta National to introduce the tournament to a new audience and provide even more anticipation and excitement to the event,” Augusta National Chairman Fred Ridley said.
It helps that ESPN is a broadcast partner of the Masters and will televise the opening two rounds.
The coverage typically begins on Wednesday with the Par 3 Contest, a showcase of past champions and current players before an enormous gallery that rarely lacks for big roars, such as the time Jack Nicklaus had his grandson play a shot and he made a hole-in-one.
Weekday rounds in threesomes
The Par 3 Contest dates to 1960 and is a big part of the tradition at Augusta National, mainly the jinx that no one has ever won the Par 3 and the Masters in the same year.
“We know that experience could not have been replicated without guests and patrons at Augusta National,” Ridley said.
So much about this Masters is different because of the COVID-19 pandemic, which shut down golf on March 13 and led Augusta National to postpone the Masters until Nov. 12-15, without spectators for the first time.
Because of the fall date and shorter daylight hours, the club said the weekday rounds would be played in threesomes off the first and 10th tees in morning and afternoon waves. The field remains set at 96 players who were eligible in April. Those who have qualified since then, such as PGA Tour winners Daniel Berger and Jim Herman, will not play until 2021.
“College GameDay” will certainly get a venue unlike any other. It typically travels to a college stadium that features a marquee matchup — Alabama has hosted it the most times since it began in 1993 — though it has gone off campus.
The most notable was in 2017 when “College GameDay” was held in Times Square. It also was held on the USS San Diego in 2012 as part of a salute to veterans.
Players allowed to bring spouse or family member
ESPN said host Rece Davis will be joined at Augusta National by analyst Kirk Herbstreit, former Heisman Trophy winner Desmond Howard and former Georgia star David Pollack, among others.
“Any time ‘College GameDay’ travels to a new destination it’s special, and the opportunity to be on the grounds of Augusta National Golf Club during the Masters is extraordinary,” said Jimmy Pitaro, chairman of ESPN and Sports Content.
Because of the pandemic, no spectators have been on site for the program. For the Masters, players are allowed to bring a spouse or family member, while Augusta National members also are allowed on the grounds.
The ESPN show on Saturday will be from 9 a.m. to noon, ending an hour before the CBS coverage starts of the third round.
One tradition won’t change. The Masters said six-time champion Jack Nicklaus and three-time champion Gary Player will hit the ceremonial first tee shot. Starting times have not been announced, but they will be early.
The club already has announced that those who bought tickets through Augusta National will be able to shop for merchandise online (two purchases). It also has a free email newsletter from the Masters that it will send to all fans.
Player’s Own Voice podcast: Karina LeBlanc and soccer’s future
Ex-national team goalie discusses the next generation of soccer stars
As goaltender for the national soccer team, Karina LeBlanc was part of the generation that put the Canadian game on the map. Between Olympic medals and high World cup expectations, the sky is now the limit.
But for LeBlanc and her cohorts, it was never just about what happened on the pitch.
Even in the big wins, the team aimed beyond the game of the day. The truly big play was to make women’s soccer a force for global change. Helping young women get the chance to participate in the world’s game, more often than not, also helped the national team players reassess themselves in positive ways.
Since becoming Head of CONCACAF Women’s Football, LeBlanc has had the privilege and pleasure to see it happen again and again in the 41 countries that represent the FIFA association: a shy girl comes to the pitch for the first time, and within a few hours sees herself as a player, with all the confidence, enthusiasm and strength that goes with that.
Player’s Own Voice podcast host Anastasia Bucsis leads Karina LeBlanc through a refreshingly optimistic conversation about a career in sports that still feels like the best is yet to come — even now.
Earlier this year, Karina wrote a powerful letter to her newborn daughter for CBC Sports’ Player’s Own Voice essay series, which, like the POV podcast, lets athletes speak to Canadians about issues from a personal perspective.
The ‘read’ and ‘listen’ versions of POV are now joined by a new way for athletes to share opinions and expertise about issues in Canadian sports: Player’s Own Voice in Studio brings digital video to the POV approach
