Rich Hill dominates Padres and Dodgers’ offense has one of its good nights in 11-1 win

first_img Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season “It’s something I think everybody in here sees. But it’s not something you overcome by trying harder. You do it by relaxing.”The early offense allowed Hill to relax and he retired the first 12 Padres batters in order, striking out seven. Hunter Renfroe broke up the perfect game with a leadoff double in the fifth inning – saving future baseball historians from the confusion running across a jersey with “D. Mountain” on the back in the archives at Cooperstown would have caused.“Yeah, that would have been something,” Hill said of the possibility.He allowed only one more hit and walked one while striking out eight in his six innings.While the Dodgers’ offense and bullpen have been co-conspirators holding them back in recent weeks, the starting pitching has been a constant. With Hill’s performance Friday, Dodgers starters have a 2.55 ERA and 1.07 WHIP in August, going at least six innings in 14 of 21 games this month. Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start “Obviously we definitely needed the win,” said Dodgers starter Rich Hill, aka D.Mountain.Sign up for our Inside the Dodgers newsletter.

They moved to within 3½ games of first place, 2½ behind the Rockies. They remain fifth in a five-team scramble for the NL’s two wild-card playoff spots.“I think we need them all, honestly,” Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner said. “But it was good to get out early, get on the board early for Rich and let him do his thing.”Turner, Chris Taylor and Max Muncy each homered. Manny Machado was the only starter without a hit – a group that included D. Mountain himself. Hill reached on a fielder’s choice and scored a run in the second inning then drove in a run with a single in the fifth.“Yeah, I closed my eyes,” Hill joked. “Predetermined swing and he hit my barrel. I’ll take it.” Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error That was one of five hits with runners in scoring position for a Dodgers team that has produced in those situations in large clumps but with no consistency. Turner drove in three of the runs with an RBI single and a two-run homer. Brian Dozier had a pair of doubles and Yasmani Grandal reached base four times (on a single and three walks). The Dodgers drew six walks. Five of them scored, including Grandal three times.“Obviously, a lot has been said about our hitting with runners in scoring position,” Turner said. “It was good to get that monkey off our backs, settle down and get back to being ourselves.”Which of those identities is going to show up is a nightly mystery at Dodger Stadium, something of which the Dodgers hitters might be too aware.“You look at our offense all year – when it goes good early, it goes really good,” Turner said. “When opportunities are lost early in the game, it almost seems like it builds up anxiety in those at-bats as the game goes on instead of shrugging it off.Related Articles How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire PreviousLOS ANGELES, CA – AUGUST 24: Pat Venditte #43 shakes hands with Yasmani Grandal #9 of the Los Angeles Dodgers after pitching a scoreless ninth inning to defeat the San Diego Padres at Dodger Stadium on August 24, 2018 in Los Angeles, California.

Mountain.The way the Dodgers were playing as Players Weekend – a contrived marketing event created by MLB to celebrate the willingness of fans to buy things online – arrived, the nicknames on the backs of those jerseys also served well as aliases, hiding the identities of the third-place underachievers.The identity crisis has been most pronounced on offense where the Dodgers have scored 11, 12 and 21 runs in games over the past three weeks – but were also held to three or fewer in 11 of 18 games (and lost 10 of those 11).The hot-and-cold offense was hot Friday night, scoring in each of the first five innings on the way to an 11-1 victory over the San Diego Padres.last_img

No savings at 50? I’d use Warren Buffett’s methods to invest

first_img Peter Stephens | Friday, 19th February, 2021 Warren Buffett’s investment strategy has been hugely successful for many years. The billionaire investor’s long-term approach and purchase of high-quality companies trading at low prices has allowed him to outperform the stock market.Following a similar approach could help to build a retirement nest egg over the coming years. Many shares appear to offer good value for money right now. So today could be the right time to start that process. Even from a standing start at age 50.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Warren Buffett’s long-term approachOne of the key parts of Buffett’s approach to investing is his long-term outlook. He avoids short-term fads. Instead, he seeks to maximise returns over many years, and even decades. In doing so, he provides his portfolio holdings with the time they need to deliver on their potential. His strategy also allows compounding to have maximum impact on portfolio value.An new investor aged 50 may not have as much time to build a retirement nest egg as someone just starting their career. However, they’re likely to have 15+ years left of working until they retire. As such, they still have a long time horizon. Enough time to maybe be able to follow Buffett’s lead in using a buy-and-hold strategy to improve their financial position.Investing money in high-quality stocks at low pricesAnother facet of Warren Buffett’s investment strategy that could be useful to many investors is his focus on buying undervalued shares. This doesn’t mean he buys cheap shares in low-quality companies. Or that he seeks to buy the best stocks at any price. Instead, he combines the two approaches to purchase high-quality stocks when they trade at low prices.In many cases, those low prices are caused by weak operating conditions prompted by a tough economic period. History shows such conditions are unlikely to last in perpetuity. Certainly since the economy has always recovered from its challenges to post improving growth rates. As such, buying companies with solid financial positions and wide economic moats while they experience temporary challenges could be a sound move.Investing for retirementUsing Warren Buffett’s strategy could lead to impressive returns that beat the stock market’s performance over the long run. Even if an investor matches the 8-10% annual total returns of indexes such as the FTSE 100 and S&P 500 over recent decades, they could build a surprisingly large portfolio by retirement.For example, investing £1,000 per month over 15 years at a 9% return would produce a portfolio valued at £381,000. From this, a 4% annual passive income could be drawn that would amount to over £15,000 per year.By following Warren Buffett’s strategy it’s possible to beat such returns in the coming years to produce a larger nest egg. And a more generous income that could even lead to an early retirement. I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.
