You ask any player on that pitch, Arsenal or Manchester United, it was the best game ever. ‘I was absolutely shattered, dead on my feet, I made a stupid tackle and at that moment I thought my Manchester United career was over. I did, I thought it was over. ‘I thought “you don’t come back” from this, this is big moment in your life, a big moment in your career: they score, they win, they go on and win the double. ‘And then Peter saves it and the rest is history. I joke with Peter all the time that he can have anything in the world off me, he can take my house, my car, anything! He saved my Manchester United career in that split second.’More: Manchester United FCRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starNew Manchester United signing Facundo Pellistri responds to Edinson Cavani praiseEx-Man Utd coach blasts Ed Woodward for two key transfer errorsNeville says his abiding memory of Giggs’ goal was the ‘smell’ of Manchester United fans celebrating with players after the Welshman’s strike.‘I was left-back and he [Giggs] was left wing and Ryan had just come on for Jesper Blomqvist and I set off and tried to overlap him but because he was fresh he was getting away from me and then he goes past one person, then he went past [Martin] Keown and then he went past [Lee] Dixon and then you think “wow, what’s happening!”‘ Neville added.‘Then you see [Paul] Scholes in the middle who literally had an open net if he crossed it and he fired it above [David] Seaman.Is United’s treble side the best team in English football history?Yes0%No0%Share your resultsShare your resultsTweet your results‘The only thing I remember was him charging towards me and he would never take his shirt off – Giggsy had probably the most sensible or boring celebrations ever – he took his shirt off, he was coming towards me and the fans came and jumped on us and all I could smell was the smell of the fans, Giggsy and his hairy chest in my face. ‘That game was the greatest and it was probably fitting that the greatest goal ever scored in the FA Cup was scored on that night.’AdvertisementAdvertisementFollow Metro Sport across our social channels, on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

The semi-final went to a replay after a goalless draw three days earlier and it turned out to be one of the greatest matches in the history of the competition, with drama from start to finish at Villa Park. David Beckham opened the scoring with a sublime long-range strike in the 17th minute but Roy Keane’s sending off and Neville’s clumsy foul on Ray Parlour inside the box looked to give Arsenal the advantage as the clock wound down.

Dodgers fail to protect another ninth-inning lead, lose series opener to Giants

August 26, 2020 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: zuwcxmlkn.

first_img How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Right-handed reliever John Axford, the only pitcher in the bullpen with extensive closing experience, has a “slight break” on the tip of his fibula, Roberts said. Axford was struck by a comebacker in the Dodgers’ loss Sunday.Axford will miss “two, three weeks,” Roberts said – almost certainly sending him to the disabled list. Starting pitcher Alex Wood will be activated from the 10-day DL on Tuesday.Second baseman Brian Dozier played eight innings before leaving with symptoms of dizziness. Dozier underwent an EKG test, which measures the heart’s electrical activity, that showed “abnormal” results, Roberts said.Neither Dozier nor Axford was available to speak to reporters after the game. Neither was Alexander, who has blown two saves in four opportunities this season.For the announced crowd of 45,229 at Dodger Stadium, Jansen cannot return too soon from his latest bout with an atrial fibrillation.The Dodgers (64-56) remained a game behind the first-place Arizona Diamondbacks (65-55) in the National League West, locked in a virtual tie for second place with the Colorado Rockies (63-55).“It’s another loss, which is no fun, but Arizona and Colorado – we’re all right there,” Dodgers starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw said. “Nothing’s changed. Obviously we’d like to win games when Arizona loses or Colorado loses, but for now, we’ve just got to keep plugging away. I know it sounds cliché but it’s just going to come down to the last 40 games. Nobody’s pulled away yet. We’ve got to do our best.”For eight innings, the 11th head-to-head game between Kershaw and San Francisco Giants counterpart Madison Bumgarner looked a lot like the first 10: close, low scoring, and worth every penny.Kershaw allowed just one run in eight innings. Bumgarner scattered two runs over six innings and left with a 2-1 deficit on the strength of a Justin Turner home run.“I don’t like the word ‘vintage’,” Kershaw said of his performance. “Just doing what you’re supposed to do.”Kershaw became just the third Dodgers starter to last eight innings in a game this season and the first since Kenta Maeda in May. His 110 pitches were two shy of a season high. He did not walk a batter and struck out nine.By virtue of his high pitch count, Roberts said he did not consider sending Kershaw out for the ninth inning.“We, as a team, have to pick him up and get three outs,” Roberts said.Kershaw broke a scoreless tie in the fourth inning with his bat.Related Articles Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco center_img Barnes singled with two outs. He left on contact when Kershaw blooped a shallow fly ball into left field. Giants left fielder Gorkys Hernandez charged in, while shortstop Brandon Crawford drifted back. The two fielders collided near the foul chalk as the ball landed fair, then fell to the ground. Barnes scored standing up.Gingerly, Crawford mustered the energy to throw out Kershaw at third base. The RBI double gave the Dodgers a 1-0 lead.Crawford flew out in the top of the fifth inning but was replaced by Alen Hansen at shortstop in the bottom of the inning.With one out in the fifth, Turner pounced on the first pitch he saw from Bumgarner – a cutter down the middle of the plate – for his seventh home run of the season. The 394-foot blast gave the Dodgers a lead that lasted until the ninth inning.The Giants’ only run against Kershaw came in the sixth inning, when Andrew McCutchen beat out a potential double-play groundout with runners on first and third base.Bumgarner and Kershaw had not faced each other since Sept. 16, 2016. In their previous 10 meetings, Bumgarner (4-3) had allowed 22 runs (18 earned) across 63-1/3 innings, a 2.56 earned-run average. Kershaw (3-4) had allowed 19 runs (16 earned) across 72 innings, a 2.00 ERA. Each team won five games. San Francisco tacked on two more runs against Alexander (2-1) before it was over, and Dodgers manager Dave Roberts needed right-hander Pedro Baez to finish the ninth inning.“I think any game’s hard to lose, but losing games like we have lately, it’s tough to swallow for sure,” Dodgers catcher Austin Barnes said. “You just have to turn the page and keep going tomorrow, try to win a ballgame tomorrow.”A different Dodgers reliever has suffered the loss in each of the last four games. Dylan Floro issued a bases-loaded walk in the ninth inning of a tie game Sunday in Colorado. Entering the game with a 2-0 lead Saturday, J.T. Chargois allowed a three-run home run in the bottom of the ninth. On Friday, Zac Rosscup allowed a two-run home run in the seventh inning of a game the Dodgers led 4-3.The Dodgers had not lost four consecutive games since their six-game losing streak May 10-16.Sign up for our Inside the Dodgers newsletter.

Pinch-hitter Nick Hundley delivered the game-winning hit with two outs – a single up the middle to drive in Chase d’Arnaud and Evan Longoria.
