UHV Baseball Starts Fall Practice

UHV baseball was supposed to start fall practice Monday afternoon at Riverside. Weather changed those plans.
Instead, Monday night indoor practice gets the fall ball rolling for the Jaguars. 17 varsity players return to the Jaguars, and they have a roster of 35 players. Most of the returnees are everyday players. While the Jaguars were getting in some conditioning drills, head coach Terry Puhl talked about the change of first day fall plans. “It’s okay. It’ll only be 1-2 days. We’ll be out on the field hopefully tomorrow. It’ll be a little nippy but by Thursday it’ll warm up some and we should have ideal weather by the end of the week.”
UHV baseball’s first fall scrimmage comes on the 26th at Riverside against Alvin Community College.

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Jhoulys Chacin combined with four relievers on a five-hitter, Orlando Arcia hit a two-run homer and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-0 on Monday to take a 2-1 lead in the NL Championship Series.

Los Angeles loaded the bases against Jeremy Jeffress in the ninth inning, but the struggling closer shut the door. He struck out Yasmani Grandal and pinch-hitter Brian Dozier to complete Milwaukee’s third shutout in six playoff games this year.

Game 4 in the best-of-seven series is Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium, with left-hander Rich Hill pitching for Los Angeles. The Brewers had yet to announce a starter.

Ryan Braun had an early RBI double off rookie Walker Buehler, who struck out eight in seven innings. Travis Shaw tripled and scored on a wild pitch in the sixth. Arcia connected for his third postseason homer in the seventh.

Chacin scattered three hits over 5 1/3 innings.
