OSU won, 10-3.Credit: Sam Harrington / Lantern photographerDespite cold weather still being a concern, the Ohio State baseball team came out hot against Marshall.The Buckeyes (16-7, 2-1) used strong pitching to keep the Thundering Herd (6-16, 3-6) as cold as the temperature was Wednesday, winning 4-0.After having to reschedule the game because of snow Tuesday, the teams took the field with the day’s high temperature in the mid-30s.Although the weather wasn’t what OSU had wanted, coach Greg Beals was happy the team could still play.“It wasn’t ideal baseball conditions, but our guys stayed on task and kept things rolling,” Beals said after the win.The starting duel featured a pair of lefties from Ohio in the Buckeyes’ freshman Zach Farmer and the Thundering Herd’s sophomore Alex Thackston.That battle didn’t last long, though.After a scoreless first, Thackston gave up a leadoff single to redshirt-junior Josh Dezse and followed by walking freshman Ronnie Dawson. After a wild pitch advanced the runners, freshman outfielder Troy Montgomery popped an RBI single to shallow right and abruptly ended Thackston’s day as he was taken out by Marshall coach Jeff Waggoner.Later in the inning, while Montgomery was caught in a pickle, Dawson stole home to give the Buckeyes a two-run lead.Meanwhile, Farmer stymied the Thundering Herd bats, giving up only one hit in five innings while striking out six.The only real danger Farmer faced was in the fifth, when he had a runner in scoring position with no outs. He responded with three strikeouts to end the threat.After being replaced on the weekend rotation by fellow freshman Tanner Tully, Farmer was happy to get back in the groove of things.“It felt real good bouncing back and getting my stuff down,” Farmer said. “When guys got on (in the fifth) I got a little worried, but I tried to stay calm and throw what I got.”Sophomore infielder Jacob Bosiokovic added to the lead with an RBI double in the fifth and a sacrifice fly in the seventh to end the scoring on the day.Though only four runs were scored, the Buckeye offense kept pressure on the Thundering Herd all game and forced them to use eight pitchers, compared to just three for OSU.“As a team, we want to try to score, obviously, many runs, but it’s important to compete every at-bat, never let up and push on the gas pedal when we can.” Bosiokovic said.The Buckeye pitching staff didn’t have nearly the same problem defensively as redshirt-senior Tyler Giannonatti and junior Trace Dempsey both pitched two scoreless innings to preserve the win for Farmer. Overall, the Thundering Herd could only muster three hits.“Our pitching staff is throwing the ball really well,” Beals said. “The last 27 innings we’ve pitched we’ve given up (two runs). You do that, you’re going to win a lot of baseball games. We’ve got confidence.”The Buckeyes are going to need the strong pitching to continue into the weekend as reigning Big Ten champion Indiana comes to Columbus for a three-game series.First pitch at Bill Davis Stadium at Nick Swisher Field is scheduled for Friday at 6:35 p.m. read more

Allegri trusts Dybala and Ronaldo will improve together

first_imgAfter Juventus’ victory against Bologna, manager Massimiliano Allegri expressed how happy he was for Dybala and Ronaldo’s improvement.Despite not scoring a goal this Wednesday against Bologna in Serie A, Cristiano Ronaldo played a good game for Juventus alongside Paulo Dybala for the first time this season at Juventus. The Vecchia Signora won 2-0 at their own stadium with a stellar performance from the Argentine where he scored the first goal and assisted Blaise Matuidi for the second one, proving that he is doing everything he can to improve his game alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and become a force to be reckoned with in Italian football. After a busy weekday of football all over Europe, only Juventus and Bayern München remain as the only clubs in the continent that still haven’t lost a single match in all competitions and that is mostly thanks to the sacrifice that all the players of the Italian club are making every single week. Even if he wasn’t able to score a goal, Cristiano Ronaldo is proving that he really wants Juventus to win everything they play and he is working hard on defense to help the squad make that happen. And if you add Paulo Dybala’s awakening to this effort that Cristiano is making, you get a team that truly can get a lot of success this season in every competition.Dybala: “We’ll see the strongest Juventus soon, With Cristiano Ronaldo there is enthusiasm, We are doing well, We must continue like this.” pic.twitter.com/RHvZy3l4UX— Cristiano Ronaldo (@TeamCRonaldo) September 26, 2018When the match Juventus played against Bologna started, it seemed like it was going to be a walk in the park for the Italian champions because they scored both goals early in the game. However, their rival really elevated their game during the rest of the match and even forced Juve’s defense to go to work several times throughout the match. Allegri wanted to recognize the work of every single player he believes made a good effort and he started with the Argentine forward who has been heavily criticized these past weeks: “Paulo [Dybala] had a good game like he did in Frosinone. It’s normal he needs to grow. They [Ronaldo and Dybala] played a good match tonight. The more they play together and the better they know each other, I think there is room for improvement. “I think playing with the three in front and Mandzukic in the middle makes both play better. Unfortunately Barzagli is 37, but he is still a different class of defender. Cancelo has the qualities to become the best full-back in the world. There’s a lot of compliments for what the boys did. In the first half the team was in charge of the pitch, we filled the pitch better than in the second half. We were more vulnerable and we played a few risky balls. We have to improve in this,” said Allegri after the victory.Juventus XI: Szczesny; Cuadrado, Rugani, Chiellini, Alex Sandro; Can, Pjanic, Bentancur; Dybala, Mandzukic, RonaldoSubs: Perin, Pinsoglio, Benatia, Bonucci, Cancelo, Matuidi, Bernardeschi, Kean#FrosinoneJuve #FinoAllaFine #ForzaJuveRick Karsdorp, Roma, Serie AKarsdorp reveals he had too much stress at Roma Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 The Dutch defender has been with the Gialorrossi since 2017, but he has not enjoyed his time in the Italian Lega Serie A.— JuventusFC (@juventusfc) September 23, 2018Juventus is all geared up for Napoli.This victory and the perfect pace they have so far this season, is a fantastic motivation for Juventus’ next match on Saturday against Carlo Ancelotti’s Napoli. Cristiano Ronaldo is going to meet his former Real Madrid manager in what will be the most important test that the Portuguese player will have to endure, at least on his short-lived Serie A career to far with the Vecchia Signora. Ancelotti is trailing behind Napoli very closely and they want to defeat them in order to end their unbeaten run and also reach those 18 points at the top of the table. The Italian manager has brought up Napoli’s most competitive side this season, many pundits in Italy are even saying that this version of the squad is even more effective than Maurizio Sarri’s team when the now Chelsea manager coached the squad in previous seasons. But ‘Carletto’ knows that all this praise will be good for nothing if his boys don’t manage to beat Juventus at their own stadium, next Saturday will be a very important days for both sides and we’ll all be watching closely to see if Paulo Dybala and Cristiano Ronaldo finally get to score goals during the same match.I’m back 🔙! Felice per il gol ma soprattutto per la vittoria ⚪️⚫️ #serieA #juventus #soccer #futbol #dybalanation pic.twitter.com/y7KV44a6iy— Paulo Dybala (@PauDybala_JR) September 26, 2018How long do you think it will take for Dybala and Ronaldo to score on the same match?

first_imgThe ’12th India Energy Summit 2018′, which was organised by the Indian Chamber of Commerce (ICC) from November 13-14 at Hotel Le Meridien, New Delhi provided a whiteboard to the participants from the energy industry to deliberate and exchange ideas on affordable and accessible powers as well as smart integration of renewable energy, among others. The two day conference focussed on carbon dioxide emission reduction and cleaner uses of coal, a crucial domestic fossil fuel which, if used intelligently, can help secure energy security. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThe conference was graced by principle secretariats of participating states, industrialists and global energy experts from GIZ, ADB, India Smart Grid Forum, PGCIL – amongst others, who delved deep into pioneering energy schemes such as ‘Saubhagya’ and deliberate on issues that are plaguing the sector as well as on the development of Gas Trading Hub –on central pricing point for natural gasduring the sessions. Eminent stalwarts of the sector such as Gurpreet Chugh, Managing Director, ICF and Rudra Chatterjee, President, ICC also addressed the session.

Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive”As we plan to bring in more renewable/alternative power in the Indian energy mix, it demands a need to create a balance in energy production through efficient but cleaner conventional power sources such as hydro and gas which are traditionally cleaner sources of energy however; these need push as they currently do not meet the required capacity requirements,” stated Ajay Kumar Bhalla, IAS, Secretary, Ministry of Power, Government of India. Speaking at the event, Anil Razdan, Former Power Secretary, Government of India and Chairman, ICC National Expert Committee on Energy said, “The Energy Summit is being held in the backdrop of India well on track to meet its green house gas (GHG) emissions intensity to GDP international commitment at Paris, and also in respect of non fossil fuel generating capacity, particularly in solar PV. However domestic manufacture of solar equipment is meeting a stiff challenge from imports.” “The health of the electricity distribution sector at the state level continues to be a cause of major concern. Meeting the fuel needs of coal and gas fired power generating stations is a challenge, and also the large financial distress in the private sector generating assets. Rising international oil prices in 2018 have raised price and financial burden on the consumer as well as federal finances. Moving to cleaner cooking and automotive fuels, the availability of affordable gas through a gas grid and a robust gas infrastructure are a challenge,” he added. Addressing the session, Gurdeep Singh, Chairman and Managing Director, NTPC, mentioned that the power sector authorities are making all the necessary efforts to provide electricity to each and every household in India.
