And he will certainly rebuild that.‘The question we can ask today is it with Eriksen or without?‘I like him [Pochettino] very much because he’s always been quiet, respectful, motivated, worked very well and got a lot of recognition from his own players, that means he’s a quality manager.’More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?

Yasiel Puig, Dodgers show up late for home-opening loss to Giants

first_img“I felt the same way I would for any other start. No excuses there,” Ryu said. “I feel unfortunate to my team and my coaches. The first two starts went pretty good. I disappointed the fans and also my teammates.”An apologetic Puig was wise to the fact he disappointed his teammates from the moment he arrived late to batting practice and was scratched from the lineup. He could only watch from the bench as Matt Kemp made a first-inning error and let a second-inning fly ball carom off his glove in his 2014 debut. Kemp was the outwardly unhappy odd man out of the lineup before Puig’s tardiness forced Dodgers manager Don Mattingly to insert Kemp in his first game since returning from an ankle injury that sidelined him part of last season.The Dodgers unanimously insisted Puig’s circumstances weren’t a factor in the lopsided loss. The 23-year-old outfielder said he was confused about the time he was supposed to arrive. “I guess it’s a big deal because it’s Yasiel, but it was a situation where he was late today,” Mattingly said. “I think he truly thought it (the game) was later. That doesn’t keep him from being responsible, but I think he was humbled by everything that happened today. I thought he handled it well.”Once Ryu exited after two innings having faced 18 batters to whom he gave up eight hits and three walks, the Dodgers mounted a spirited rally. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error LOS ANGELES – Yasiel Puig was the only one who technically showed up late. The rest of the Dodgers were missing in action until an hour into their home opener Friday afternoon.By the time cleanup hitter Adrian Gonzales came to the plate in the second inning, the Dodgers faced an eight-run deficit, one from which they never recovered in an 8-4 loss in front of a 53,493 at Dodger Stadium.Making his third start in six games, Hyun-Jin Ryu was tattooed for eight runs — six earned — in two innings. After not allowing a run in his first two starts of 2014, Ryu put eight consecutive batters on base in the first inning.center_img Gonzalez and Andre Ethier’s back-to-back home runs in the fourth inning awakened a crowd that was stunned into submission by the first two innings.A couple of innocent runs turned into tangible momentum for the Dodgers when Carl Crawford led off the fifth inning with a single before Kemp collected his first hit of 2014, an RBI double to pull the Dodgers within 8-3.Hanley Ramirez’s RBI single cut the original eight-run deficit in half and ended the day for Giants starter Ryan Vogelsong. After giving up only Dee Gordon’s bloop single in the first three innings, Vogelsong pitched into the fifth inning, allowing four runs on seven hits with two walks.“Just chip away, keep chipping away,” said Gordon, who is hitting .412. “That’s what we were trying to do. We just ran out of innings.”Outside of the fourth and fifth innings, Gordon was the only Dodger to reach base without being thrown out on the base paths. The second baseman, who went 2 for 4, led off the sixth inning with a bunt single and reached third on an error, but was stranded in what signified the end of the Dodgers’ momentum.The Giants didn’t so much as collect a hit over the final seven innings off four Dodgers relievers, but the eight-run hole proved too deep for the Dodgers. “I think we all feel bad and I feel bad because this was the first look that our Dodger fans got of us in those first two innings,” catcher A.J. Ellis said. “But I’m proud of the ways our guys battled and I’m really proud of our bullpen. … But I don’t believe in moral victories or silver linings. We lost the game. They played better.”Ryu’s earned-run average jumped from zero to 3.86 with Friday’s dismal performance. Of his three starts in the first six games of the season, none have been on less than a regular four days’ rest. The second-year pitcher’s five scoreless innings on March 22 in Sydney, Australia led to a 7-5 Dodgers win before Brian Wilson negated his seven shutout innings on Sunday by giving up three runs in the eighth inning of a 3-1 loss to the San Diego Padres. Friday began much the same for Ryu, who struck out Angel Pagan and drew a fly out from Hunter Pence to begin the game.With two outs, the 27-year old unraveled. Pablo Sandoval was the first of nine consecutive Giants to reach base. Buster Posey’s double was a couple of feet from clearing the left-field wall before a Michael Morse two-run single began the avalanche of six first-inning runs.Kemp misplayed Morse’s single for the only error of the inning, but the most embarrassing moment of the sequence was Brandon Hicks’ pop-up that fell on the edge of the infield dirt toward right field between a confused trio of Dodgers. Ryu’s second walk of the inning was of the intentional variety, but backfired when Vogelsong dropped a two-out bloop single in short left field to swell the Giants’ lead to 5-0.The bleeding didn’t stop in a second inning that began with shortstop Hanley Ramirez short-hopping a routine throw to first, the second Dodger error of the game.Kemp followed with his second miscue in as many opportunities in center field when Hicks’ double caromed off his glove, what appeared to be a catchable ball before Kemp made contact with the center-field wall. The Giants plated their second run of the inning to take an 8-0 lead when Joaquin Arias’ RBI single made him the seventh member of the Giants to collect at least one hit in the first two innings.Kemp bristled after the game about his suspect defense, claiming he not only wasn’t rusty, but felt good.“It just so happened that the first ball hit to me, I kind of booted it a little bit,” Kemp said. “There’s no rust. I expected to be able to play the way I know how right off the bat.”last_img read more
