SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. Shayne Graham Jersey . —Outfielder
Thomas Neals lunging catch saved an extra-base hit and helped the Hastings
All-Stars from Vancouver beat Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, 13-9 on Friday in a Little
League World Series slugfest. The teams combined for 27 hits, but several
defensive gems by Canada had fans buzzing. Neals catch was the most impressive
after Mexicos Eduardo Abrego smacked a sinking liner to left-centre with two
outs in the third and a runner on first. Neal dashed to his right before diving
for the catch with an outstretched glove just before the ball hit the turf. “The
moment I saw it, I just had this feeling he was going to catch it,” said pitcher
Ataru Yamaguchi. The 13-year-old outfielder let out a roar before being mobbed
by teammates on his way back to the dugout. “I told him he was my best friend
now,” the 13-year-old Yamaguchi joked. “He wasnt before. He was my fourth (best
friend), just to clarify.” The catch by Neal set off some major league buzz on
Twitter, as several big leaguers took to the web to comment on the game-saving
grab. “Wow what a catch !!,” tweeted Los Angeles Angels rookie Mike Trout. “That
might be the catch of the year so far in all of baseball,” echoed Baltimore
Orioles outfielder Adam Jones. And moments later, Toronto Blue Jays pitcher
Ricky Romero sent his congratulations to Neal. “I know Im a lil late but that
catch the center fielder from team Canada made was sick!!!!,” tweeted the Blue
Jays starter. Canada led 8-1 in the top of the second before Mexico rallied with
the long ball. Ramon Ballina hit two homers. Mexico manager Fernando Rios kept
the message simple in encouraging his players after they fell behind. “Basically
our work is to cheer them up and to tell them not to give up,” he said through
interpreter Sergio Guzman. “And not to be impatient at the plate. Just hit some
good baseballs. Canada escaped another jam in the sixth to hold on. Neal caught
a hard liner to centre and nearly threw the ball into the infield expecting
runners to tag before realizing it was the last out of the game. He wasnt the
only Canada player who impressed with the glove. Third baseman Kolby Buljevic
grabbed a tough bouncer to set up a double play just before Neals sparkling
catch in the third. Leftfielder Carter Kada-Wong later fell backward to catch a
high fly that was made more difficult because of steady showers. “Our defence
has been the strongest point of our team said manager Vito Bordignon. “Weve made
so many plays and unbelievable plays.” J.J.

. Middlebrooks had a solo homer among his three hits and drove in two runs,
Franklin Morales gave Boston another decent start as the fill-in for
Josh Beckett, and the Red Sox beat the Atlanta Braves 8-4 on Saturday night. Kevin Walter Jersey . The Green Bay Packers
receiver won the ABC dance show Tuesday after wowing audiences and judges with
his kickin country-themed freestyle routine. He and partner Peta Murgatroyd
hoisted the glittery prize above their heads after being named the new “Dancing”
champs. Matt Schaub Jersey . Justin Upton and
Ryan Roberts homered and every Arizona starter had at least one hit as the
Diamondbacks beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 11-4 on Wednesday night, ending the NL
West leaders six-game winning streak.BOSTON—Minnesota Twins manager Ron
Gardenhire can put up with Samuel Dedunos wildness as long as the starter keeps
limiting opponents to just two hits. The right-hander who spent five years in
the minors before reaching the majors allowed two hits for his second straight
strong outing and the Twins beat the Boston Red Sox 5-0 on Thursday night.
Deduno (3-0) walked four and struck out one in six innings before two relievers
combined for three perfect innings. In his previous start, he allowed one run on
two hits and five walks in a 12-5 win over Cleveland. “I know his ball-strike
ratio wasnt the greatest, but sometimes that works,” Gardenhire said. “He was
able to make pitches when he had to and thats all you really care about.” Deduno
had an outstanding curveball and slider. He also has a fastball that moves so
much that his catchers sometimes wonder where it will end up. And it led to him
throwing only 50 of his 101 pitches for strikes. “Hes got a very live fastball,”
said shortstop Brian Dozier, who played with Deduno at Triple-A Rochester this
season. “It cuts. It sinks. It rides. I dont know how he grips it, but he just
kind of shoots for the middle of the plate.” Deduno, making his sixth major
league start, has given up just two earned runs and 10 hits in 19 1-3 innings
“My curveball and my slider are pretty good, but my fastball is still moving
like crazy,” said Deduno, who reached the majors in 2010 and pitched six games
in relief for Colorado and San Diego. ””This is the most fun. This is the dream
to play in the big leagues and to stay not just for one month or two months.”
Adrian Gonzalez got both Boston hits, a single and double. Casey Fien retired
the side in order in the seventh and Glen Perkins pitched two perfect innings
for his sixth save in nine opportunities. Deduno overshadowed one of the best
performances of Jon Lesters rough season. Bostons lefty gave up three runs and
seven hits in eight innings with seven strikeouts and no walks. “I dont feel
like I have thrown the ball that well all year,” he said. Lester (5-9) had
allowed 25 runs in his previous four starts but improved in his last one,
allowing four runs in six innings. And he was much better on Thursday despite
dropping to 0-4 in his last six starts and 2-7 at Fenway Park this season. Johnathan Joseph Jersey. “Just another one of
those hard luck outings,” manager Bobby Valentine said. “He pitched awfully
well. 2-0 doesnt seem insurmountable but it was tonight.” The Twins took a 2-0
lead in the third inning on a single by Dozier, an RBI double by Denard Span and
a run-scoring single by Ben Revere that extended his career-best hitting streak
to 16 games. They made it 3-0 in the sixth on consecutive doubles by
Justin Morneau and Ryan Doumit. Dozier added his third hit of the game and fifth
homer of the season, a two-run shot in the ninth off Alfredo Aceves. “That was
pretty cool, man. It was one of the best feelings so far since Ive been up
here,” said Dozier, who was called up from Rochester on May 7. “I got it pretty
good. It was a 2-0 fastball up in the zone and I knew he didnt want to walk me
and so hes coming with the fastball. So I closed my eyes and hit it.” The Twins
won for the fifth time in seven games, while the Red Sox dropped their second
straight after winning four in a row. Deduno got 11 of his 18 outs on
groundballs and stranded runners at second base in three innings. With two outs
in the first, he walked Dustin Pedroia and Gonzalez then retired Cody Ross on a
popup to shortstop. In the third, Gonzalez doubled with one out, Ryan Lavarnway
walked with two outs but Will Middlebrooks flied out to centre. And with two
outs in the sixth, Boston threatened with consecutive singles by Gonzalez and
Ross before Lavarnway lined out to left. Deduno raised both arms as he walked
off the mound. Notes: Span stretched his hitting streak to 11 games. ...
Gonzalez went 2-for-3 with a walk, his 18th muiltihit game in his last 34. ...
Minnesota C Joe Mauer was given the night off to rest. He is hitting .352 in his
last 57 games. ... The Red Sox stranded runners in scoring position in three of
the first six innings. ... Minnesotas Brian Duensing (2-6) is scheduled to pitch
Friday nights second game of the four-game series against Felix Doubront (10-5).
... Boston is 10-10 since the All-Star break. And 289-291 all-time against
Minnesota. ’ ’ ’
