Cameron Borthwick-Jackson has big-game mentality – Chris Smalling

first_img Press Association And it was Borthwick-Jackson’s mature performance at the home of United’s bitter rivals that convinced Smalling his defensive colleague can handle the spotlight. “I think he showed he is ready for a stage like this,” the England international told ManUtd.com after the Liverpool game. “He has been drip fed quite a few games this season and he has done very well. To be able to stand up here and perform like he did shows he is ready for any game because if you can perform here then you can perform anywhere in the league.” Injuries have left United depleted in defence this year and Van Gaal has therefore had to use a number of inexperienced players at Old Trafford. However, Smalling insists Borthwick-Jackson’s mentality means he needs little guidance. “I like to talk to the defence no matter who is playing,” the 26-year-old said. “Maybe it’s a case of spurring him on when he does something good just to keep that going, but on the whole he looks after himself because he is a very level-headed guy.” Borthwick-Jackson, 18, has made only half-a-dozen appearances for Louis van Gaal’s side and his only senior starts came at Bournemouth and in the FA Cup against Sheffield United. He began Sunday’s 1-0 win over Liverpool among the substitutes but was called upon by Van Gaal before half-time at Anfield when Ashley Young suffered an injury. center_img Manchester United’s teenage defender Cameron Borthwick-Jackson has already proven he has the mettle to handle the big stage, according to team-mate Chris Smalling. last_img read more

Dodgers’ offense returns to form in victory over Reds

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error LOS ANGELES >> After a belt-tightening eight-game stretch during which they were limited to 18 runs and a .166 batting average by three of the best starting rotations in baseball, the Dodgers can put on their fat pants this weekend.Justin Turner hit a two-run home run in his first at-bat after returning from the DL and the Dodgers pulled away early in a 7-2 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Friday night.The Reds’ starting rotation came into this weekend series with the highest ERA in the majors (5.81) by a wide margin. Friday’s starter, left-hander Amir Garrett, wasn’t around for long.After giving up Turner’s homer in the first inning, Garrett took a line drive off his pitching hand to start the second inning. The bullet came off Austin Barnes’ bat at 103 mph and left Garrett on the ground in pain. He left the game with a contusion. X-rays were negative. Maeda, on the other hand, emerged from the bullpen a new man.Bumped from the rotation to accommodate Alex Wood’s return from the DL on Saturday, Maeda had made just one previous relief appearance in his professional career – as a rookie with the Hiroshima Carp in 2008.In 10 starts this season, he had allowed 12 runs in the first innings along with a .349 batting average and 1.083 OPS. In his first inning as a reliever, he retired the side in order, striking out two.He kept going, striking out four of the first six batters he faced and retiring the first nine in order before Joey Votto led off the ninth with a home run.center_img The Dodgers’ offense went on to do most of its damage against the Reds relievers who followed.Two runs scored in the third inning when right-hander Jake Buchanan tried to make a highlight-reel play on Barnes’ chopper to the left of the pitcher’s mound with the bases loaded. This one Buchanan tried to bare hand and spin to throw Barnes out at first. His throw was wide of first, allowing the two runs to score.An inning later, Buchanan loaded the bases again on a double by Chris Taylor, a walk and a hit batter. Franklin Gutierrez’s first hit since May 16 – a ground ball single into left field – drove in two more runs.Kike’ Hernandez added a solo home run later, plenty of offense to support the a new tag team duo – Rich Hill and Kenta Maeda.Hill continued to struggle with his control, walking three in the second and third innings, and needed 98 pitches to get through five innings. He allowed just one run on two hits in that time but has now walked 16 batters in his past 18 innings.last_img read more
