B’ville baseball honors ALS awareness, sweeps F-M

first_img Tags: BaldwinsvilleBaseball When it took a 5-4, eight-inning defeat at Liverpool on April 25, the Baldwinsville baseball team suffered its first blemish of 2019, but it didn’t take long to face another extra-inning test.In the first game of its subsequent series against Fayetteville-Manlius last Monday night, the Bees had to come back to take the Hornets to eight innings, but pulled out a 4-3 decision.Jake Marshall saw the 1-0 lead he inherited vanish when F-M scored three times in the bottom of the first inning, two of them on Sean Arthur’s single.Marshall lasted until the fourth, when Chris AuClair relieved him. By then, it was tied, 3-3, helped by Nate Ray’s two hits and two RBIs, and it would stay that way the rest of regulation as the Hornets had John Egnaczyk take over in relief after Tom Coleman started.Still even in the top of the eighth, B’ville got Mike Carni to third base, and then Carni raced home when Egnaczyk uncorked a wild pitch.Then AuClair earned the final three outs, having gone 4 1/3 innings with seven strikeouts. Marshall struck out five as he and AuClair combined to limit F-M to four hits.All of this set up last Wednesday night’s second game of the series on the turf at Onondaga Community College, part of the Strike Out Lou Gehrig’s Disease Classic.This held a particular meaning for B’ville’s school community since Ray Middle School teacher Mike Pauldine is battling Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis.In an emotional pregame ceremony, Pauldine, in a wheelchair, threw out the ceremonial first pitch, to the applause of both teams and a large group of Ray Middle teachers who were present at the game.Next to all that, the contest itself did not quite have the same meaning, but it was still Savacool’s turn in the rotation, and unlike with Liverpool, he had little trouble getting the win as the Bees beat the Hornets 12-2.Over the first four innings, B’ville accumulated a 12-0 advantage. Carni doubled twice, driving in two runs as Marshall, Ray and Pat May matched that two-RBI output. Pat Anson and Lucas Robinson also drove in runs.Savacool did not need that much run support, but the big lead allowed him to exit after just five innings, having only allowed one hit while striking out 10. Mike Carr worked two innings in relief.Rain that fell overnight and lingered into Thursday morning postponed the third B’ville-F-M game, and the Bees got ready for this week’s series with West Genesee, the first time these two had met since last May’s extra-inning Section III Class AA final.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story last_img read more

USC aims to offer affordable parking permits for students

first_imgFollow us on Twitter @dailytrojan USC Transportation is striving to make more parking spaces available at a reasonable price for students, faculty and guests.People who do purchase a permit are faced with a cost as low as $58.50 to as high as $414 per semester, all which are relative to the parking structure and whether the driver is in a motorcycle or a car.Each semester is roughly four and a half months, meaning the monthly rate falls between $13 to $92. If a driver uses his or her car at least five times per month, the driver’s monthly permit is probably less expensive than paying to park on a daily basis.USC Transportation Associate Director of Operations David Donovan explained the logistics.“We have eight parking structures and numerous open-air surface lots across both campuses, as well as garage parking and surface lots associated with USC Housing facilities. There are around 15,000 spaces available,” Donovan said.Donovan also addressed how USC keeps permit rates as low as they can, while still contributing to the University-approved budget.“We operate on a zero-based budget system; we can only spend what we generate in revenue in a given fiscal year,” Donovan said.For those students who live off campus in an apartment, most of those complexes provide deals for car parking.Last year, the apartment complex Lorenzo had promotions for free parking if students signed a lease with them at certain times of the year.Rachel Erickson, a senior majoring in global health, lives in Chez Ronnee, which had two parking spots included in the rent. Erickson said if she and her roommates needed more than two spaces, she would be reluctant to look into street parking.“I know many people who’ve been towed or had the car vandalized on the street,” Erickson said.Others avoid street parking because it can be hard to find. Commuter Kaeli Flaczinski, a senior majoring in astronautical engineering, pays $414 per semester for a parking permit.“It is insane to find a parking spot on the street,” Flaczinski said. “I do not necessarily mean [the permit] is worth it.”Donovan mentioned how accommodating USC has been for students commuting to campus.“Commuter students who bring their vehicles to campus have the same privileges residential students do,” Donovan said. “Students who use alternate forms of transit are supported by our various alternate commuting options, including carpool and vanpool programs, subsidies for discounted Metro permits and partnerships with programs like Zimride and Zipcar.”The hassle of finding parking off campus is one reason students are buying parking permits for on-campus parking.“If I had all the time in the world to search for street parking, I would, but honestly it’s just easier to have a set place to park that I’ve already paid for,” Erickson said.last_img read more

Syracuse football opponent preview: What to know about Wake Forest

first_imgThe Wake Forest report: WFU started off its season 4-0, beating Tulane, Duke Delaware and Indiana. Most recently, the Demon Deacons lost to North Carolina State, 33-16, on the road.Starting quarterback Kendall Hinton is still recovering from a knee injury so the Orange is going to see John Wolford at quarterback again. Wolford threw for 373 on 43 attempts against SU last season. Starting freshman running back Cade Carney missed WFU’s last three games also with a knee injury, but Wake Forest head coach Dave Clawson said he hopes Carney will play against SU. The last time Carney played, he gouged Duke for 108 yards and three touchdowns.WFU runs the ball for about as many yards as it throws it each game, but scores most of its touchdowns on the ground with a 10-to-3 rushing-to-passing touchdown ratio. Running back Matt Colburn will likely shoulder most of the load.Defensively, the Demon Deacons are led by Duke Ejiofor, who has the ninth-most sacks per game in the country (1.1) and eighth-most tackles for loss per game (1.8).  Wake Forest’s defensive weakness comes in the passing game where it ranks near the bottom of the ACC in yards allowed and in the bottom half of the country in passing efficiency defense.How Syracuse beats Wake Forest: If the weather cooperates enough. It won’t have to be a clear night, but heavy rain and wind will not equal success for Syracuse. There’s only so much Eric Dungey can do to “grip it and rip it” through a hurricane passing along the coast. A low-scoring game favors Wake Forest, considering Syracuse’s struggles to run the ball this season and Wake Forest’s relative success.Chase Guttman | Staff PhotographerStat to know: 64.7Wake Forest boasts a red zone defense that has held its opponents to under a 65 percent success rate. That ranks ninth in the country and is the only statistical category in which the team is slotted in the top 10 in the nation.Player to watch: Cade Carney, running backCade Carney was named the starting running back prior to the season as a true freshman. Though he only got seven carries for 21 yards in the season opener, he ripped up Duke in his second career game, including a 55-yard touchdown run. Syracuse doesn’t have the best rush defense and the weather could force this game to stay on the ground. If Carney is healthy, he’ll be key in Wake Forest’s attempts to dominate the running game. Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Syracuse (2-3, 0-1 Atlantic Coast) heads on the road to face Wake Forest (4-1, 1-1 Atlantic Coast) at 7 p.m. on Saturday at BB&T Field in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

‘Muller is Bayern’s Messi’ and ‘will never leave’, says Rummenigge

first_imgBayern Munich’s CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has moved to quell the speculation around the future of Germany forward Thomas Muller.Manchester United were one of several clubs rumoured to have made huge bids for the striker this summer, with United reportedly making a bid of £80 million for his services.But Muller stayed put, and has since scored eight goals across all competitions this season – even if he was outshone by Robert Lewandowski against Wolfsburg this week.Rummenigge said on Thursday that Muller is simply not for sale at any price.”Muller will stay at Bayern, regardless of what any club offers,” the 59-year-old told Bild.”There is no amount that would make us consider an offer. “Messi belongs to Barcelona, Rooney belongs to Manchester United and Muller belongs to Bayern. It should stay like that.”There might be players out there who have a better technique and who are faster, but there is no second Thomas Muller in this world.”He is extremely valuable to us. He represents the Mia San Mia feeling at Bayern.”–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM. Our hashtag is #JoySportslast_img read more
