Jumper Brasil

New York Knicks (37-45)

Pontos Positivos

– Apesar de ter uma campanha negativa, o New York Knicks ficou muito próximo de se classificar para os playoffs, e foi o nono colocado da conferência Leste.

– Defensivamente, o Knicks seguiu entre os times que menos sofreram pontos dentro do garrafão, com 39.5 por jogo, e teve a sexta melhor marca da temporada.

– Carmelo Anthony teve provavelmente sua melhor temporada na NBA, atingindo suas melhores marcas da carreira em rebotes, aproveitamento de arremessos de três e nos lances livres.

Giants Smash Brewers 15-5

CBS San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP) — Pablo Sandoval hit a two-run homer among his three RBIs and finished a double shy of the cycle, powering the San Francisco Giants past the Milwaukee Brewers 15-5 on Sunday to match a season high with their sixth straight win.

Madison Bumgarner (16-9) followed up his one-hit gem Tuesday against Colorado with seven strikeouts in six innings to win his third straight start. The left-hander finished August at 4-1 with a 1.57 ERA.

Hunter Pence extended his NL-leading hitting streak to 13 games with a third-inning RBI double, the first of his four hits. He doubled again in the fifth and added a seventh-inning triple.

The Brewers lost their season-high fifth straight road game and dropped into a tie for the NL Central lead with St. Louis. It’s the first time since July 20 that they don’t have sole possession of the division lead.

Milwaukee has…

Stories From The Stove

016Yesterday we went walking and found these blackberries, the red picked as an enticement to the black ones to gel. I made a rather flouncy-sounding mûrée with them – a kind of jam but without the staggering amount of sugar. ‘Serve it tepid with a grainy cake,’ is Jane Grigson’s rather dowdy instruction, though I found the marriage of mûrée and yoghurt far more appealing. You can keep the jam in the fridge and be none the wiser. There are umpteen blackberry recipes around, and so it is easy to feel overpowered and then give up, eat them in a desultory way and stain your breathable ‘windproof’ pockets into the bargain. Your hands will also look as if they have been attacked by a feral dog.

But this, I have discovered, is part of the joy. Because there are also windfall apples to be scooped up. And elderberries and rosehips…

Primeiro monotrilho do país será inaugurado hoje em São Paulo

Gavião da Paraíba

Na prática, o monotrilho da linha 15-prata servirá de laboratório para o sistema –as outras linhas serão a 17-ouro (Morumbi-Jabaquara), em obras, e a 18-bronze (Tamanduateí-ABC), contratada.

“Como é o primeiro, esse está servindo de referência para tudo que ainda está por vir”, disse o secretário de Transportes Metropolitanos, Jurandir Fernandes, que não deu prazo preciso para a conclusão das outras linhas. Até agora, o governo vinha trabalhando com previsão de 2015 (linha 17-ouro) e 2018 (linha 18-bronze). Quando completa, a linha 15 terá 18 estações e 26,7 km lingando o Ipiranga à Cidade Tiradentes, uma das áreas mais populosas da cidade. A demanda prevista é de mais de 500 mil passageiros/dia.

Um dos objetivos do novo ramal é desafogar a linha 3-vermelha do metrô, a mais superlotada da rede.

VIDEO: Jorge Soler hits two long home runs in third major league game

HardballTalk

We saw Cubs rookie outfielder Jorge Soler go deep in his first major league at-bat on Wednesday night. Well, last night, the 22-year-old delivered his first career multi-homer game. He first hit a game-tying solo homer off Cardinals right-hander Shelby Miller in the seventh inning before launching a two-run blast in the eighth.

Check out the impressive power display below:

The sound off Soler’s bat on that second home run was something special. Just in case you were curious (and I know you are), the first one traveled an estimated 420 feet to dead-central while the second went even further, at an estimated 438 feet.

Soler finished the night 3-for-3 with a walk. He’s hitting .636 (7-for-11) over his first three games in the majors. The Cubs might have something here.
