Grand Slam no matter
#1
ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Hank Conger got his first RBI of the season the hard way. It was the ultimate in taking one for the team. Conger was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the 11th inning after rookie Jeurys Familia intentionally walked the previous two batters, and the Los Angeles Angels got home runs from Mike Trout and J.B. Shuck in a 5-4 victory over the New York Mets on Friday night. "With bases loaded, your job is to try to somehow get on base so youll drive in the run. So I was just trying to get a pitch up because I knew a sac fly would do," said Conger, who entered on defence in the ninth after catcher Chris Iannetta was replaced by a pinch runner. "I just went up there trying to battle him." Raul Ibanez led off the 11th with a single against Familia (0-2), who was working his third inning of relief. Ibanez advanced on a wild pitch and went to third on a grounder to shortstop by David Freese before Mets manager Terry Collins ordered Familia to walk Howie Kendrick and Shuck to set up a force at any base. "Thats part of the game, you know? Sometimes you have to do that -- walk the guy and try to get a double play," Familia said. "So you just try to keep going, pound the zone and try to get groundballs." The strategy backfired when Familia plunked Conger in the ribs with a 2-2 delivery on his 51st pitch. Conger recoiled to absorb the blow. The run ended a string of 18 2-3 scoreless innings by Mets relievers after they allowed 13 earned runs in the teams first four games. Kyle Farnsworth helped keep the streak going when he retired Albert Pujols on a grounder with the bases loaded to end the eighth. Pujols came up again in the 10th with two on and hit a bouncer back to Familia for the third out, leaving the three-time NL MVP with five RBIs in his first 41 at-bats. Michael Kohn (1-0) pitched a perfect inning for the win. Travis dArnaud homered for the Mets and Josh Satin hit a two-run double. This is the Mets third visit to Anaheim since interleague play began in 1997. Their previous series at the "Big A" was in June 2008, when manager Willie Randolph was fired in the middle of the night and replaced by Jerry Manuel. New Yorks 4-2 lead evaporated in the sixth when Dillon Gee gave up a walk to Kendrick and a two-run homer by Shuck that landed in the lower seats in the right field corner. It came in the first game of the season for Shuck, recalled from the minors Wednesday when right fielder Josh Hamilton went on the disabled list with a torn ligament in his left thumb. Hamilton, injured on a headfirst slide into first base Tuesday at Seattle, had surgery Friday morning and is expected to be sidelined six to eight weeks. "It says a lot about J.B. and a lot about the team," Conger said. "Obviously, it had to be kind of a shock for him to get sent down toward the end of spring training. The team knows theres big shoes to fill, as far as Hamilton goes. So he comes up here and plays with a chip on his shoulder, and tonight he did an awesome job." Gee was charged with four runs and six hits in 5 2-3 innings, the first time in 20 starts that he failed to get through the sixth. He walked the bases loaded in the fifth, but escaped when Satin fielded a grounder by Ibanez that hit first base and bounced high in the air. "Its really frustrating. Today was just not a good outing all the way around," Gee said. "I didnt feel really good and I struggled with command, walking as many guys as I did. So I just tried to battle through it and grind it out. This was one of those days where I had trouble finding the release point I wanted." The Mets, who travelled cross-country following Thursday nights 6-4 victory in Atlanta, didnt get to their hotel until 3 a.m. But they scored in three of the first four innings against lefty Tyler Skaggs. "You want to put up zeros, but fortunately the team picked me up," said Skaggs, who went seven innings. Curtis Granderson caught Shucks flyball in the right field corner for the first out of the eighth, then did an immediate 360 toward the stands after a fan reached out and touched him on the back. Security guards escorted the fan out moments later. NOTES: Collins piloted the Angels for two-plus seasons and resigned with 29 games left in the 1999 campaign. Mike Scioscia took over the following season. ... The Angels reinstated RHP Dane De La Rosa (strained forearm) from the disabled list and optioned LHP Nick Maronde to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Less than 24 hours after the Wolves lost at home to the Mavericks, 100-98, NBA president of basketball operations Rod Thorn announced Tuesday that Kevin Love was fouled on his right arm by Shawn Marion in the closing seconds and should have been awarded two free throws.MELBOURNE, Australia - It wasnt until Serena Williams forced herself to relax, and not focus too intently on a milestone Grand Slam title, that she rediscovered the art of winning the biggest events in tennis.Now shes on the verge of a 19th major championship after beating 19-year-old Madison Keys 7-6 (5), 6-2 on Thursday and setting up an Australian Open final against long-time rival Maria Sharapova.Williams has won all five Australian Open finals she has contested and won her last 15 matches against No. 2-ranked Sharapova, a five-time major winner who will be playing her fourth final at Melbourne Park.While the 33-year-old Williams is peerless among active players, there was a period last year when she wanted so desperately to win her 18th major that it proved too distracting. After winning the U.S. Open in 2013, she lost in the fourth round at the Australian Open, the second round at the French and the third round at Wimbledon.I was so hyped on getting to 18 and I lost every Grand Slam early. I didnt make it to any quarterfinals, Williams said. Then after Wimbledon I decided to just — not necessarily not care — but just relax. It all kind of came back for me after that ... and I think its been working.That approach helped her win the U.S. Open and, if it works again on Saturday against 2008 champion Sharapova, it will help Williams move above Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova on the list of major winners. She would be behind only Steffi Graf, with 22 titles, among champions in the Open era.The statistics point to another win for Williams, but shes not getting ahead of herself.Again. I have to win. Everyones expecting me to win. But well see, Williams said. Shes playing unbelievable. She was almost out of the tournament and has been playing better every single match. Its impressive.Williams, who has struggled with a cold for a week, said shed benefit from a tough workout in the all-American semifinal against Keys, who pounded her with heavy groundstrokes and a big serve for the first set.Keys, playing in her first Grand Slam semifinal, saved seven match points on serve in a penultimate game that lasted more than 11 minutes. Williams closed with an ace in the next game to reach her 23rd major final.She pushed me really hard the first set .dddddddddddd.. and I had to really dig deep mentally to get through that, Williams said. It was a little frustrating. I had like nine or 10 match points and couldnt close it out. That doesnt happen so much. She played like she didnt have anything to lose.Sharapova, who beat No. 10-seeded Ekaterina Makarova 6-3, 6-2 in an all-Russian semifinal, has won only two of her 18 career meetings with Williams — both in 2004. She started 2015 with a title at the Brisbane International and, ever since saving two match points in her second-round match against Russian qualifier Alexandra Panova, has been growing in confidence.I think my confidence should be pretty high going into a final of a Grand Slam no matter who Im facing and whether Ive had a terrible record, to say the least, against someone, Sharapova said. It doesnt matter. I got there for a reason. I belong in that spot. I will do everything I can to get the title.In mens play, Andy Murray reached the Australian Open final for the fourth time, and is desperate to end a title drought Down Under.The sixth-seeded Murray beat No. 7 Tomas Berdych 6-7 (6), 6-0, 6-3, 7-5 in a semifinal laced with heavy hitting, flashes of anger and profanities.Murray lost finals here to Roger Federer in 2010 and Novak Djokovic in 11 and 13. Since then, he has won the U.S. Open and Wimbledon to end long title droughts for British men. Hell get another chance to claim the Australian title on Sunday, against the winner of Fridays semifinal between Djokovic and defending champion Stan Wawrinka.Tension was high before the match because Murrays former coach, Dani Vallverdu, is now working for Berdych.You wanted there to be tension, Murray said. A lot was made of Dani, my ex-coach, working with him. I felt it was a little unfair and unnecessary. This is sport, theres more to life than sport. It was a little unfair and created extra tension.An aggravated Murray bristled when Berdych spoke a few words to him after the first-set tiebreaker, and yelled profanities throughout the match. TV cameras appeared to show his fiancee, Kim Sears, uttering expletives in support.Murray said the emotional reactions were understandable given the hype leading into the match. ' ' '
