PBA: Aces finally on the board after destroying Magnolia in Game 3

ANTIPOLO CITY, Rizal --- Alaska is finally on the board. The Aces scored their first win of the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup in convincing fashion, dominating the Magnolia Hotshots, 100-71, in Game 3 Sunday at the Ynares Center here. With import Mike Harris at the lead, Alaska reduced the final 12 minutes into mere garbage time and the Aces cut their series deficit in half, 1-2. After a slow first quarter, the Aces got it going in the second, pouring 34 points to take a commanding lead they would never surrender. Behind the shooting of its guard core led by Simon Enciso, Alaska took a 50-36 lead at the break and never looked back. Harris then went to work in the second half, finally having his first great game of these Finals and the Aces held off any possible Magnolia uprising. Harris scored 18 straight points for the Aces in the third period as Alaska took a 73-49 lead over the Hotshots. Alaska led by 33 after three quarters. "I thought we had a great defensice effort and we made some shots," head coach Alex Compton said. "Overall, the story of the game in the first three quarters was we made a bunch of shots, we didn't turn it over, and we defended at the same time," he added Harris was a beast for the Aces, leading the way with 36 points and 18 rebounds. He scored 22 total in the third period as Alaska landed its knockout blow. Vic Manuel added 14 points as the top local for Alaska while Enciso and Carl Bryan Cruz finished with 12 and 10 points respectively. For the Hotshots, everyone struggled as they only shot 33 percent collectively from the field. Romeo Travis was the high man with 18 points while Mark Barroca was good for 13. No other Magnolia player scored in double figures. Game 4 is set for Wednesday at the Big Dome.   The scores: ALASKA 100 - Harris 36, Manuel 14, Enciso 12, Cruz 10, Banchero 6, J. Pascual 4, Teng 4, Galliguez 4, Casio 4, Andrada 2, Baclao 2, Racal 2, Exciminiano 0, Magat 0, Potts 0. MAGNOLIA 71 - Travis 18, Barroca 13, Herndon 7, Sangalang 7, Mendoza 6, Dela Rosa 5, Abundo 4, Reavis 3, Lee 2, Ramos 2, Melton 2, Jalalon 2, Simon 0, Gamalinda 0, Brondial 0, K. Pascual 0. Quarterscores: 16-22, 50-36, 83-50, 100-71.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Kluber, Bauer, Greinke could be dangled at winter meetings

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Corey Kluber, Trevor Bauer, Zack Greinke and Madison Bumgarner appear to be available for teams looking to bolster starting rotations. Hometown star Bryce Harper and Manny Machado, the two top free agents, remain unsigned heading into the traditional high-point of the offseason. Catcher J.T. Realmuto, third baseman Kyle Seager could be among the position players dangled as trade bait in the suites of Las Vegas' Mandalay Bay, where executives and agents gather next week for the annual swap session, which in an age of complicated finances and medical records serves as a midpoint for talks as much as a place to finish deals. Chicago Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein predicted the week will be "really active." "It seems like there is plenty of trade talk, and there are still a lot of good free agents out there," he said. "A couple of moves have already occurred that sort of always set the stage for increased activity in the next week or so." First baseman Paul Goldschmidt (Arizona to St. Louis) and second baseman Robinson Cano (Seattle to New York Mets) are among the All-Stars already traded since the end of the World Series. Pitchers Patrick Corbin ($140 million for six years with Washington) and Nathan Eovaldi ($68 million for four years with Boston) already struck big deals in a free-agent market moving more swiftly than last offseason's, and third baseman Josh Donaldson took a $23 million, one-year agreement with Atlanta. Nineteen of 164 players who exercised major league free agent rights have announced deals, up from eight heading into the meetings last year. And with A.J. Pollock, Dallas Keuchel and Craig Kimbrel still unsigned, there's plenty more holiday shopping. And for the bottom of the market, there is sale time in January, February and even March. It's not like the old days when teams made deals as soon as the market opened and tried to fill all their needs by the end of the winter meetings. "Things are slow," Oakland general manager Dave Forst said. "I don't think it's that different from last year. Maybe the winter meetings will kind of jumpstart things." Also on-deck at the meetings: HALL OR NOTHING Orel Hershiser, Albert Belle and George Steinbrenner will be considered for the Hall of Fame when a 16-member panel votes this weekend in Las Vegas. Results will be announced Sunday at 8 p.m. EST. Harold Baines, Joe Carter, Will Clark, Lee Smith, Davey Johnson, Charlie Manuel and Lou Piniella are included on the ballot. The Hall of Fame board-appointed Today's Game Era Committee includes Hall members Greg Maddux, Roberto Alomar, Joe Morgan, Bert Blyleven, Pat Gillick, Tony La Russa, John Schuerholz, Ozzie Smith and Joe Torre. PICK-N-PACK The Rule 5 draft is the last item of business at the winter meetings, held Thursday morning before clubs clear out of town. Teams scour each other's 40-man rosters, looking for players left off. Royals pitchers Brad Keller and Burch Smith, Tigers outfielder Victor Reyes and Texas outfielder Carlos Tocci were among those picked last December in the Rule 5. HEAR THIS Eight announcers who called games in the early days of radio are candidates for the Hall's Ford C. Frick Award that honors broadcasting excellence. Waite Hoyt, Harry Heilmann, Connie Desmond, Pat Flanagan, Jack Graney, Al Helfer, Rosey Rowswell and Ty Tyson are all deceased. Hoyt and Heilmann already are in the Hall as players — Hoyt was the top pitcher on the famed 1927 Yankees, Heilmann played alongside Ty Cobb in the Detroit outfield and hit .403 in 1923. No player in the Hall has also won the Frick award. The prize will be announced Wednesday......»»

Asian soccer leader Salman challenged by Abu Dhabi candidate

ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Asian Football Confederation president Sheikh Salman of Bahrain will face at least one challenger for re-election, though not an expected opponent from Saudi Arabia. The United Arab Emirates soccer federation says Mohamed Khalfan Al Romaithi announced his presidential run for the April 6 vote by Thursday's deadline. Al Romaithi is a member of the Abu Dhabi Sports Council board, and the AFC executive committee headed by Sheikh Salman since 2013. No candidate was announced by the Saudi Arabia Football Federation (SAFF), which had previously seemed to target the AFC presidency that comes with FIFA vice-president status. In September, SAFF president Adel Ezzat resigned to prepare his AFC candidacy. However, Sheikh Salman's position was strengthened in October when he won a key election nomination rules vote and rebuffed a Saudi-created regional group of federations......»»
