For me, coming off missing the entire year with the neck, I knew I was going to have to play a different kind of way, a different sort of physical state, Manning said. I was looking for things like positive feedback from receivers on whether the ball felt the same coming in and then when you get into the game and you throw a deep out. We played a preseason game and I threw a deep comeback route, and that was a thing to check off the box. You want to do everything for the first time again. You want to get hit, you want to make a tight throw, have a two-minute drive. I wanted to do all those things again.
The Golden Knights have scored the opening goal in the first period of all nine of their postseason home games…. Washington needs three more wins to become the second team in NHL history to win a Cup after trailing in all four postseason rounds, joining Pittsburgh in 1991…. T-Mobile Arena reported 18,702 fans in the sold-out building, setting a franchise record for attendance.
Torres definitely has been all that and more since he received his first big-league call-up on April 22 after a few years of being labeled one of baseball’s best prospects.
Through Tuesday’s 2-for 5-night, Torres is hitting.321 with nine homers and 26 RBIs… and two walk-off hits counting his game-winning homer that beat Cleveland on May 6.
Being that young and playing for this organization, there’s a lot of pressure, Sabathia said. For him to be able to deliver in these moments, it just means there’s more to come.
Torres’ error total is up to seven, a team-high, but he’s mixed in a whole lot of tremendous plays, too.
