a contract for next season

CINCINNATI (AP) — Not only did Los Angeles lose to the lowly Cincinnati Reds yet again Cooper Kupp Jersey Elite , this time former Dodgers prospects did in their former team.Former Los Angeles farmhands Brandon Dixon and Scott Schebler homered, and the Dodgers stumbled for the second straight night in a 3-1 loss Tuesday night.“Two days ago, things were great,” Los Angeles manager Dave Roberts said. “I don’t have an answer for the Reds. Obviously, we don’t. I wish I had an answer. We felt good about this series coming in. We were prepared. We can’t solve the riddle of their pitching. Our only thought now is to salvage the series and find a way to get a win.”Defending NL champion Los Angeles is 0-6 against Cincinnati this season. The Dodgers, who lost Monday’s series opener 10-6 to the last-place Reds, remained 1½ games behind NL West-leading Colorado and dropped three games back of St. Louis for the second NL wild card.Los Angeles has lost back-to-back games for the first time since a three-game sweep by St. Louis from Aug. 20-22. Last week the Dodgers lost two of three to the sub-.500 New York Mets.“It’s not complacency,” Roberts said. “If anything, we’re trying too hard. When we put it together, we’re very good. Against teams that on paper we should beat, it hasn’t worked out.”Dixon homered in the second inning and Schebler in the third for a 2-0 lead against Hyun-Jin Ryu (4-3). Jose Peraza http://www.losangelesramsteamonline.com/cooper-kupp-jersey , another former Los Angeles prospect, had two hits.Dixon, Peraza and Schebler all were acquired by the Reds from Los Angeles as part of the December 2015 three-team trade that sent Todd Frazier from Cincinnati to the Chicago White Sox.“It is fun to play the team you left,” Dixon said. “The win is the most important thing, but you have a chip on your shoulder when you play your former team.”Scooter Gennett had two hits, including a run-scoring single in the fifth inning, and lifted his league-leading average to .321. Gennett is hitting .727 (16 for 22) against the Dodgers this season.Luis Castillo (9-12) allowed one run and four hits in 6 1/3 innings with nine strikeouts. He retired 15 straight batters before Joc Pederson’s one-out homer in the sixth.Raisel Iglesias pitched a hitless ninth for his 26th save in 30 chances, completing a five-hitter.Dixon, playing in place of a resting Joey Votto, sent a cutter into the upper deck for his fifth home run this season and Schebler hit his 16th home run and third in five games, The drive sailed over the Reds bullpen down the right-field line and clanged off an advertising sign.Ryu (4-3) gave up eight hits in five innings.MOVING AROUNDIn Cincinnati’s last four games Authentic Jared Goff Jersey , Dixon has started at second base, third base, right field and first base. He is the first Reds player to start four straight games at different positions since Jerry Hairston in September 2008. Dixon also has made two scoreless pitching appearances.STREAK ALIVEPederson’s shot extended the Dodgers’ streak of consecutive games with at least one homer to 19, tops in the majors this season. Pederson snapped a 0-for-13 skid with a single leading off the game.GET THE BALLReds OF Gabriel Guerrero singled in the fourth for his first major league hit.TRAINER’S ROOMDodgers: 3B Justin Turner didn’t start after reaching base in 33 of 34 games since coming off the disabled list on Aug. 2 but pinch hit. “He’s showing signs of fatigue,” manager Dave Roberts said. “He’s had a high workload.”UP NEXTDodgers: RHP Ross Stripling (8-3) starts Wednesday after ace Clayton Kershaw was pushed back to Thursday. Stripling has a 6.14 ERA in 7 1/3 innings in two career appearances against the RedsReds: RHP Anthony DeSclafani (7-4) is 1-3 with a 3.12 ERA in four starts against Los Angeles, the last on Aug. 21, 2016. ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) The smiling side of a handshake line at the end of the second round was a brand-new experience for Alex Ovechkin and Barry Trotz.Ovechkin received a message of good luck and a pat on the chest from Sidney Crosby, while Trotz got to enjoy a happy moment with longtime coaching friend Jacques Martin. Ovechkin acknowledged he’d been in that position a lot of times – though never as the one moving on to the third round.Until now.The Washington Capitals reaching the Eastern Conference final for the first time since 1998 is perhaps most special to the superstar captain and his coach who had never made it out of the second round before. No coach in NHL history had been behind the bench for more games than Trotz and no active player had been in as many playoff games as Ovechkin without reaching the conference finals.”There is a kinship there, there’s no question,” Trotz said. ”I’ve been at this for a while and it’s so hard to move forward sometimes. It’s always thrown in your face everywhere your turn. I know it’s thrown in Ovi’s face everywhere he turns Jared Goff Jersey Elite , and he’s a great player in this league. … I knew the frustration because you’re so close and you just can’t get it, and you just got to stay with it.”After 51 playoff games together, Ovechkin and Trotz will take part in their first East final starting Friday night in Tampa Bay against the Lightning. Now that they’ve gotten over a hump that defined their respective careers, Ovechkin, Trotz and the Capitals are in unfamiliar territory.”It’s something new for us and cool,” Ovechkin said Wednesday, less than 48 hours after Washington eliminated the defending champion Pittsburgh Penguins. ”Right now it’s just satisfaction we beat the Stanley Cup champions finally and we move forward and now we’re going to play against a very good team, against very good goaltending and solid players over there.”The Atlantic Division-champion Lightning present a formidable challenge, but the Capitals had to overcome something altogether different after losing in the first or second round in all nine playoff appearances that have come during the Ovechkin era dating to 2008. Beating the rival Penguins in overtime in a Game 6 on the road made the breakthrough even more emotional.”We should be proud of that,” defenseman Matt Niskanen said. ”It’s a big achievement. But I think we’ve got to be greedy. We’ve got to want more because this is a heck of a run. I don’t know if there is a group out there that knows how hard it is to get to this point.”The Capitals are at this point with Ovechkin on top of his game with eight goals and seven assists, his best playoff output since 2009. And they’re here in large part because of Trotz Authentic Brandin Cooks Jersey , a well-respected, 19-year NHL coach who does not have a contract for next season.”I had a summer which was very enlightening to me, and I just look at everything way differently than I ever have,” Trotz said. ”I just recognized that I can only control what I can control, and the other stuff I can’t.”Trotz can’t control upper-body injuries to Nicklas Backstrom and Andre Burakovsky or a three-game suspension handed out to winger Tom Wilson, only the decisions he makes in replacing them. So far, Trotz has pushed the right buttons, like putting Braden Holtby back in net in Game 2 of the first round and promoting Jakub Vrana to the top line in Game 5 against Pittsburgh.His players know Trotz is in control as he and the Capitals advance further into the spring than they have in 20 years.”He wants to win a Cup,” forward Chandler Stephenson said. ”He doesn’t want to make it past the second round. It’s obviously a little accomplishment, a little confidence-boost. But we’re not done yet. We’re only halfway.”—AP Sports Writer Howard Fendrich contributed.—
