#1 definitely be special to throw here von riluowanying123 29.04.2019 14:57

What do Melbournes A-League clubs think about each other?Is it hatred, like Sydney FC captain Alex Brosque so memorably expressed towards his Western Sydney rivals in the build-up to last weeks Sydney derby?Contempt? Disdain? Or perhaps even a begrudging respect?In years past, Victory dismissed the threat from Melbourne Heart, who might have won their fair share of derbies under their previous guise but couldnt match Victory in any other area.Heart was a dirty word at the club, with management preferring to refer to their upstart rivals as the other Melbourne club or something more colourful.Now its City surging in membership - albeit coming from a long way behind their established rivals - and interest in the build-up to the first Melbourne derby of the season.Put two players - Victorys James Donachie and Citys Anthony Caceres - in front of a microphone and theres no attempt to trash talk the other.But Donachie is clearly buying into the rivalry ahead of his first derby, and expects to transform on Saturday night once he walks onto the Etihad Stadium pitch.Im not going to use words like hate (but), when you cross the white line, Id go so far as thats the emotion youre feeling, he said.Right now, before the game, you stay calm. Obviously, you can see fans and everyone watching the game - things change when the whistle blows.The 23-year-old said he expected Saturdays game to match anything he experienced at former club Brisbane.I played in a grand final and that was pretty big but this will probably be the same if not better, he said.A crowd of more than 40,000 is expected for the match, with plenty of light blue in the crowd for the expected A-League debut of City signing Tim Cahill.Like City executive Simon Pearce, who said last week he now knew rather than believed the club would find success, the clubs fans are growing in ambition.Caceres said he was feeding off it.I get the feeling they believe that theres going to be one team in this city, he said.As players, we want to do all we can to prove that on the field.Caceres vowed not to repeat his last derby performance, when he was sent off in a raucous 2-2 draw at AAMI Park.That was the first and last of that, he said.Its something I wouldnt want to repeat but derbies are derbies. Theyre always energetic and full on. Sometimes, things like that happen.

Westbrook has missed 27 games since having a procedure on Dec. 27 to deal with swelling in his injured right knee — the third operation on the knee in nine months. OAKLAND, Calif. -- In an effort to avoid a four-game sweep at the hands of their Bay Area rivals, the San Francisco Giants will buck 40 years of baseball tradition.Giants ace left-hander Madison Bumgarner will start Thursday against the Oakland As at the Oakland Coliseum, and he will bat in place of a designated hitter.Bumgarner will become the first starting pitcher to bat intentionally in place of a designated hitter since Ken Brett did so twice for the Chicago White Sox in 1976. Since the DH rule was adopted by the AL in 1973, the only other pitchers knowingly penciled into the batting order in games at AL parks were the Rangers Ferguson Jenkins in 1974 and the Athletics Ken Holtzman in 1975, according to the San Jose Mercury News.The Tampa Bay Rays were forced to use pitcher Andy Sonnanstine instead of a DH in a 2009 game, but that was due to a lineup-card mistake.Bumgarner, who is hitting .175 (7-for-40) with two homers and five RBI this year, will get to bat against As rookie left-hander Dillon Overton due largely to the Giants lack of right-handed-hitting options. Though he pitches left-handed, Bumgarner bats right-handed.Overton, coming off a win in his major league debut Saturday in Anaheim, is excited to face off with Bumgarner the pitcher.Hes one of the best pitchers in baseball, and Ive watched him for numerous years on TV, and Ive taken some pointers from him, Overton said. It will definitely be special to be able to throw against him. It will be fun.Overton had 28 family members from Oklahoma and Texas cheering him on Saturday due a 7-3 victory against the Los Angeles Angels.It was a thrilling start to his career, even though he allowed solo home runs to Mike Trout, Kole Calhoun and Albert Pujols. Those were the only runs Overton allowed in 5 2/3 innings. Now he gets to make his home debut on a day the As will attempt to complete a sweep of the Giants.Being a home-grown guy in this organization, it will definitely be special to throw here finally in front of our home crowd, Overton said Wednesday.After beating the Giants two times at AT&T Park, the As defeated them 7-1 on Wednesday night at the Coliseum. Beating Bumgarner to cap the sweep wont be easy for Oakland, as he is 8-4 with a 1.99 ERA in his career against the Athletics.Hes been awesome, Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford said of Bumgarner. All of his pitches have been sharp. Hes using the cutter and fastball like always, but hes really been mixing in that curveball and been throwing that really well this year, and I think thats probably the biggest difference.ddddddddddddBumgarner had gone 7-0 with a 1.27 ERA over 10 starts before hitting what for him was a rough patch. He has lost back-to-back starts despite allowing a total of just four runs to the Pittsburgh Pirates and Philadelphia Phillies in that stretch.After watching his team commit three errors and lose yet another infielder to an injury Wednesday night, Giants manager Bruce Bochy took little solace in the fact that Bumgarner would be on the mound for the series finale.We just have to clean it up, Bochy said. Thats the one thing we were doing very well is catching the ball. You deal with the streaks where you have trouble scoring runs, but the one thing we should be consistent at is catching the ball. Were a pretty good team defensively, and thats gotten away from us.Giants starting second baseman Joe Panik (concussion) went on the seven-day disabled list Wednesday, joining starting third baseman Matt Duffy (left Achilles strain) and backup infielders Kelby Tomlinson (left thumb sprain) and Ehire Adrianza (fractured left foot).Now infielder Ramiro Pena, who started in Paniks place Wednesday, could be headed to the DL. He sprained his left ankle in the third inning in a collision with right fielder Mac Williamson as they pursued a pop fly. Pena, who was charged with an error, stayed in the game until being replaced by a pinch hitter in the fifth.Hes pretty sore, Bochy said. X-rays were negative. Well get an MRI tomorrow. Hes looking at (missing) five to seven days. I think its pretty evident were going to have to get somebody to help out here.Overtons personal rooting section will be decidedly smaller Thursday than it was Saturday, but he still will have six to eight family members at the game.My wifes going to be here, my grandparents will be here and my cousin and uncle will be here, Overton said. And I just found out today my mother-in-law and my wifes grandpa will be here.They should see a much more relaxed pitcher on the mound.Since Ive already had one outing, I think it will be a little easier to not be so star-struck when I go out there this time, said Overton, a second-round pick in 2013 out of the University of Oklahoma. Just easier to stay focused and be ready to do what I need to do. I think it will be fun, and Im looking forward to it. ' ' '
