MLB wrap: Cubs get extra-inning win to split doubleheader with Dodgers
Center-fielder Albert Almora Jr. hit a walk-off single in the 10th inning to give the Cubs a 2-1 victory earning a doubleheader split with the Dodgers Tuesday.
Kris Bryant opened the inning with a triple, and after an intentional walk to Javier Baez, Almora had the stage set to be the hero.
The Cubs earned some payback with the win, as the Dodgers had won the first game of the doubleheader, 4-3, thanks to pinch-hitter Kyle Farmer’s two-run double in the top of the ninth.
I’m very proud of what school I went to and obviously people don’t think of Richmond as a big football school, Lauletta told The Post on the last day of minicamp. Richmond was amazing to me, so I’m very grateful.
Those are three people I’ve worked with for five straight years, so I know them really well and got a chance to talk to them yesterday before practice. So it was definitely good seeing them out here.
Lauletta recalled how his time at Richmond was a challenge, both academically and in football. But he isn’t the only player on the Giants’ roster with roots in Virginia.
Pederson is in a much different boat now in 2018, but he might approach it in training camp, which begins in late-July, in a similar way.
Maybe we’ll do the same type of thing, Pederson said on Thursday at NovaCare Complex.
He has Nick Foles, the reigning Super Bowl MVP residing on the top of the depth chart as Wentz recovers from knee surgery. This is Wentz’s team, Pederson said as much this week, but until he’s ready to go, Foles is the No. 1 quarterback.
Of course, Wentz is rapidly progressing, already working in 7 on 7 drills in minicamp despite suffering a Torn ACL in December.
So if Wentz makes enough progress to become a full — or near-full — participant in training camp, don’t expect him to receive 100 percent of the first-team reps just yet.
Tentatively, Pederson’s plan would be to have Nick (and) Carson working with the ones, working with the starters so we’re not losing a lot of that valuable time, Pederson said.
