Paul DeJong Jersey
#1
The Los Angeles Dodgers faced extreme pressure heading into the seventh game of the National League Championship Series and ended up handling that situation with flying colors.As a result Lance Lynn Jersey , the Dodgers are going back to the World Series for the second year in a row.The Dodgers used a two-run home run from Cody Bellinger in the second inning and a three-run shot from Yasiel Puig in the sixth inning to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 5-1 and win the National League pennant.Walker Buehler gave up a first-inning home run to Christian Yelich, but the Brewers were not able to do any further damage against the 24-year-old right-hander and the four Dodgers relievers. Kenley Jansen pitched the seventh and eighth innings in shutdown fashion for the Dodgers, while staff ace Clayton Kershaw finished the job in the ninth.

Chris Sale will start for the Red Sox in that game Mark McGwire Jersey , and there's every chance the Fall Classic opener will be a classic pitcher's duel.The Red Sox won 108 regular-season games and will have home-field advantage throughout the World Series. Boston is attempting to win its fourth World Series title since 2004, while L.A. is hoping to make up for last year's seven-game loss to the Houston Astros.The Dodgers' most recent of their six World Series triumphs came in 1988. They beat a heavily favored Oakland Athletics team in five games, and they are underdogs in this series to the Red Sox."It doesn't matter how you get there, and we are excited," Kershaw saidin a postgame interview with Tom Verducci on FS1. "When Kenley went in and pitched two innings in the seventh, I thought I might be going in."The Red Sox are minus-155 favorites to win the World Series (wager $155 to win $100), while the Dodgers are plus-135 underdogs (wager $100 to win $135), per OddsShark.The Dodgers needed to go the limit to win the NLCS, but the Red Sox disposed of the Houston Astros in five games. After splitting the first two meetings in Boston, the Red Sox swept the three games in Houston to eliminate the World Series champions.The Red Sox had the best offensive team in baseball during the regular season, and their relentless attack was the primary reason they were able to beat the Astros in four straight games following their loss in Game 1 of the ALCS.Jackie Bradley Jr., regularly the ninth-place hitter in the Boston lineup, drove in nine runs against the Astros and won the ALCS Most Valuable Player. He hit a bases-loaded double in Game 2, he hammered a grand slam in Game 3 and followed that with the go-ahead two-run homer in Game 4 that proved to be the big hit in that contest.The Red Sox are led Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez, who have both been dynamic this season. Betts won the American League batting crown, hit 32 home runs and stole 30 bases. Martinez hammered 43 homers and drove in a major league-best 130 runs.The Red Sox also depend on Xander Bogaerts, Andrew Benintendi and third baseman Rafael Devers.The Dodgers will counter with Justin Turner, Manny Machado, Bellinger and Puig.These two franchises last met in the World Series in 1916. At that time, the Dodgers were known as the Robins and played in Brooklyn http://www.stlouiscardinalsteamshop.com/authentic-marcell-ozuna-jersey , New York. The Red Sox defeated the Brooklyn Robins four games to one.After losing the World Series in heartbreaking fashion to the Astros last year, the Dodgers will try to make the Red Sox feel their pain this time around. Tommy Giordano, a longtime scout who played only 11 games in the major leagues but spent more than seven decades in a variety of baseball roles, died Thursday. He was 93.Known affectionately as “T-bone,” Giordano was stricken in December with a blood infection, said his daughter, Gail Przeclawski. He died at her home in Orlando, Florida, after the family decided against further treatment.Giordano worked for the Atlanta Braves as baseball’s oldest scout through last season, his 71st in professional baseball. He had intended to come back for another year until he became ill.“I can’t wait to get up in the morning and go to the ballpark,” he said in a 2016 interview with The Associated Press. “I’m still in baseball, so I must have been doing a pretty good job.”Giordano, a slick-fielding middle infielder, played in the minor leagues for a dozen years. His only appearance in the majors came toward the end of the 1953 season, when he was called up by the struggling Philadelphia Athletics.He had a memorable debut at Connie Mack Stadium, homering off 20-game winner Virgil Trucks of the Chicago White Sox in his second career at-bat. But Giordano hit only .175 with two homers and five RBIs during that 11-game stint and never returned to the Show. The Athletics played just one more season in Philadelphia, moving first to Kansas City and eventually to Oakland.Giordano spent most of the 1953 season with Savannah in the Class A South Atlantic League, where he met future home run king Hank Aaron, then an up-and-coming prospect with Jacksonville. Aaron led the Sally League in almost every offensive category except one — Giordano hit 24 homers, two more than the Hammer.Giordano became a scout after his playing days were over http://www.stlouiscardinalsteamshop.com/authentic-marcell-ozuna-jersey , serving in that role for numerous teams beginning with the Kansas City Athletics in 1960. He relished the opportunity to comb the backwoods and backwaters for potential future stars.Two of his biggest prizes were Cal Ripken Jr. and Manny Ramirez.“Get in the house” was a scouting mantra that Giordano swore by, giving him a chance to check out a prospect’s family and any off-the-field red flags.“See what kind of furniture they have in the house. See how many cars they have. See what kind of dad he has. Does he drink? Does he smoke? Are there any problems in the house? Get to know that family. I love doing that kind of work,” he said.Over the course of his long career, Giordano served as a scouting director, player development executive and assistant to the general manager with the Baltimore Orioles, Cleveland Indians and Texas Rangers. He was selected by his peers as Major League Baseball’s East Coast scout of the year in 2007.Born Oct. 9, 1925 in Newark, New Jersey, Giordano’s baseball career almost ended not long after it started. His father, who owned a grocery store, believed young Tommy should focus on his schoolwork and devote any free time to working at the family business.When Giordano joined the high school team, he fibbed to his parents about his reason for coming home late.“I used to hide my spikes,” Giordano said. “Well, my dad got hold of them and put them on the butcher block. He cut them up. He cut everything up. My bat, my glove, everything.”Eventually, though, his father came around. He even had a pregame ritual that gave his son a nickname, one that stuck with him through the rest of his life.T-bone.“I hit a couple of home runs one day,” Giordano recalled. “Someone made the statement Paul DeJong Jersey , ‘Hey, where did you get all that power? What did you do?’ I told ’em, ‘Before every game, my dad fixes me a big T-bone steak.’ That’s where it all started.”Still vibrant into his 90s and determined to remain part of the game, Giordano was hired before the 2016 season as a special assistant by his protege John Hart, then serving as president of baseball operations for the Atlanta Braves.That would be Giordano’s final stop.“I love what I’m doing,” he said in 2016. “I’m going to do this until I die.”Hart was able to visit with Giordano in his final days, part of a steady stream of visitors who descended on his daughter’s home to say goodbye. Many others called, including Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson.In a text to the AP, Hart wrote that Giordano was “like a father to me, and I have been so blessed to have him in my life.”Giordano is survived by two children, two grandchildren, four great-grandchildren and two brothers.His wife, Berenice, died almost a year ago. The couple was married for 70 years.A memorial service is scheduled in Orlando on March 10. The family also plans memorial services in Newark and on Long Island, where Giordano and his wife lived for many years before moving to Florida.
