urt or two emotional victims who spoke about evenings that be Antworten

CLEVELAND -- Most fans around the country can sit back and savor Game 7. Not so easy for anyone who has spent a lifetime rooting for the Cubs or Indians.All those years of hope and heartbreak collide Wednesday night when Chicago and Cleveland meet one last time this season to decide the World Series.With the Cubs seeking their first championship since 1908 and the Indians trying to stop a drought that dates to 1948, the stakes could hardly be higher.No one says Game 3 or 5. This is what you want, said shortstop Francisco Lindor, who leads the Indians with a .364 Series average.Cleveland ace Corey Kluber pitches against Kyle Hendricks, the major league ERA leader. Kluber has a chance to become the first pitcher to win three World Series starts since Detroits Mickey Lolich in 1968.Throwback stuff.The game has changed, the 76-year-old Lolich said Tuesday. Its a totally different game than what we played back in our days. It just doesnt happen.Addison Russell hit a grand slam and tied a Series record with six RBI in Chicagos 9-3 win Tuesday night that forced this captivating matchup to the limit.Chicago is trying to become the first club to overcome a 3-1 Series deficit since the 1985 Kansas City Royals and the first to do it by winning Games 6 and 7 on the road since the 1979 Pittsburgh Pirates.Now its one night, winner take all.Its a kids dream, Russell said.Even after losing two straight, the Indians remain confident.Kluber is 4-1 with a 0.89 ERA in four postseason starts, starting with 16 consecutive scoreless innings against Boston in the Division Series and Toronto in the AL Championship Series.Thats our guy. Thats our stud, Cleveland second baseman Jason Kipnis said.A 30-year-old right-hander, Kluber started on three days rest for the first time in his big league career in Game 4 against the Blue Jays. He left after five innings with the Indians trailing 2-1 in a 5-1 defeat, then threw 88 pitches over six innings as Cleveland beat the Cubs 6-0 last Tuesday in the Series opener.He came back on three days rest in Game 4, needing 81 pitches for six innings of one-run, five-hit ball in a 7-2 win that gave Cleveland a 3-1 lead.Obviously, hes a special guy, Hendricks said. You can just see it, the way he takes to the mound. Hes always locked in.Nine pitchers have won three starts in a single Series, none since Lolich went 3-0 with a 1.67 ERA and 21 strikeouts while tossing three complete games against the St. Louis Cardinals.Good players, good pitchers, can do special things. Hes in that category, Indians manager Terry Francona said. It was kind of an easy decision after talking to him.The 2014 AL Cy Young Award winner, Kluber was 18-9 with a 3.14 ERA this season as Cleveland won the AL Central for the first time since 2007. His win in the All-Star Game at San Diego in July gave the American League home-field advantage in the Series.I never connected those dots at that point in time, he said.Already, he is the first pitcher to win Games 1 and 4 in the Series since Cincinnatis Jose Rijo in 1990. In addition to Lolich, the only others to win three Series starts were Charles Deacon Phillippe of Pittsburgh and Bill Dinneen of the Boston Americans (1903), the New York Giants Christy Mathewson (1905), the Philadelphia Athletics Jack Coombs (1910), Pittsburghs Babe Adams (1909), Clevelands Stan Coveleski (1920), Milwaukees Lew Burdette (1957) and Bob Gibson (1967).Hendricks, a 28-year-old right-hander, went 16-8 and didnt get a decision in his Game 3 Series start, when he allowed six hits in 4 1/3 scoreless innings of a 1-0 loss.This is the ultimate dream, he said. When youre out in your backyard as a kid, playing Little League at the field with your friends, this is the moment you dream about: Game 7, 3-2, two outs, something like that, bottom of the ninth. But its always Game 7 of the World Series.Behind the starters, Chicago closer Aroldis Chapman has thrown 62 pitches in the last three days. Clevelands Andrew Miller hasnt pitched since Saturday and closer Cody Allen has been rested since Sunday.Were all ready to go, Miller said. Hopefully were fresh.---AP investigative researcher Randy Herschaft contributed to this report. Authentic Bruins Jerseys .

LOS ANGELES -- Former NFL star Darren Sharper was sentenced Tuesday a 20-year prison term, ending a tour of shame and punishment in the courthouse where he first admitted drugging and raping women in four states.Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor denounced Sharpers horrible conduct and disgraceful abuse of trust during the hearing that concluded prosecutions that unmasked the popular former all-pro safety and Super Bowl champ as a serial rapist.Under the terms of a plea deal negotiated with prosecutors in four states, Sharper will be eligible for parole in about eight years because California law requires he serve half his sentence and he has already been behind bars more than two years since his arrest.But he will probably serve more time if an appeals court upholds an 18-year prison sentence handed down by a New Orleans federal judge who rejected the deal as too lenient. Sharper has appealed that harsher sentence.Sharper, 41, sat quietly in court in orange jail scrubs and never addressed the court or two emotional victims who spoke about evenings that began innocently enough partying with friends turned into nightmares they can no longer escape after he secretly slipped drugs in their shot glasses and insisted they drink.Both women blacked out and later awoke to the groggy reality that something terribly wrong had occurred that they couldnt immediately comprehend in their drug-induced stupor.I started vomiting, my head was pounding and I had trouble seeing clearly, said one victim, who said her rape on Jan. 15, 2014 was the worst night of my life.The woman, identified only as Jane Doe 2, teared up before she even addressed the court and dabbed at her nose with a tissue throughout. She said her surfing career spiraled downward afterward, she lost her self-confidence, lives in fear and at one point considered suicide.The only good thing about this situation is that this disgusting low-life human will be sent to prison for many years and is likely he will never be able to do to this to another woman again, she said. I hope this scumbag will now feel as worthless as he has made me feel.Sharper, 41, was working as an NFL network analyst when women in several cities began reporting how nights of partying with their girlfriends and Sharper ended witth them waking up in his hotel room confused and discovering they had been sexually assaulted.ddddddddddddSharpers arrest came as the NFL was dealing with off-field problems with players accused of crimes ranging from spousal abuse to murder.The second woman, identified as Jane Doe 4, was with a friend when they were drugged by Sharper in his hotel room in 2013, hours after they met at a Sports Illustrated 50th anniversary party.She woke up on a bed with her clothes on, blood coming out of her nose and did now know where she was. She said her friend had been sexually assaulted, and both fled fearing for their lives.Its one thing to be a victim, but to be the victim that got `lucky in some eyes is not easy to live with, Jane Doe 4 said. When I think back to that night I wonder what he could have done to me. Thats not lucky. Its haunting.The Associated Press does not generally name people who are victims of sex crimes.Sharper retired from the league in 2011 after a 14-year career with the Green Bay Packers, the Minnesota Vikings and, finally, in New Orleans with the Saints, where he won a Super Bowl.Lawyers for Sharper had vigorously disputed the charges before he abruptly gave up his defense in March 2015 on the eve of a preliminary hearing to decide if the Los Angeles case would go to trial.From the Los Angeles courtroom, Sharper appeared by video-conferencing and pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting one woman and trying to attack another in suburban Phoenix in 2013.An hour later, he pleaded no contest to drugging and raping two women he picked up at a West Hollywood bar on two occasions in late 2013 and early 2014.The next day, he pleaded guilty via video to a reduced felony attempted sex assault charge for a Las Vegas case.He later pleaded guilty in Louisiana to federal charges of drugging women so he could rape them and state charges to three counts of rape.At Sharpers sentencing in Louisiana federal court, he told the judge he wanted to apologize a thousand times.On Tuesday in the Los Angeles courtroom, Sharper had nothing to say besides providing simple, short answers to routine legal sentencing questions posed by the judge.
