This is a little embarrassing to admit. I’ve spent the last several years writing about space, the search for extraterrestrial life and science fiction, but before this week I’d never seen Ridley Scott’s 1979 sci-fi classic, Alien. In my defense, when the movie came out on May 25 of that year, there were still about […]

The world according to Riley and Tilda

It’s 6.30am. Marion’s at the gym and I’m having breakfast with the girls. When I say “having breakfast”, I mean no one is eating anything because Riley’s frustrated that her drawing isn’t perfect and Tilda’s whinging about the way I poured the milk into her bowl. I vaguely remember the concept of drinking my morning coffee hot but haven’t achieved that for a few years now.

Riley (5): Daaad! Why aren’t you cutting out my X marks the spot?!
Tilda (2): I want cereal crackers UNDER!

Me: I will in a minute Riley. Tilda, do you want more milk in your bowl to cover your cereal crackers?
Tilda: NOOOOOO! Under! UNDER!

She jabs at her cereal with a spoon, trying to push it underneath the milk…

(Photo by Mike Carlson/Getty Images) ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Baseball’s MacGyvers can blow things up too. The Tampa Bay Rays exploded for seven runs in a seventh inning that featured two three-run home runs off Dodgers relievers and handed the Dodgers an 8-1 defeat Wednesday night to split their two-game interleague series. Dodgers starter Rich Hill allowed just one run in his six innings. But a mild-mannered 1-1 tie turned ugly in the bottom of the seventh when Dylan Floro and Caleb Ferguson cut the wrong wires. Before Wednesday’s explosion, the Dodgers’ bullpen had a 2.72 ERA in the month of May, second-best in the National League. That jumped to 4.10 by the end of the night, more in line with the ’pen’s overall mark – a 4.44 ERA that ranks in the bottom third among MLB teams. “It’s been reliable at times,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said of his bullpen. “Each individual, I think, at times has thrown the ball really well. Right now, working from the back, I think we’re getting Kenley (Jansen) back on line. Petey (Pedro Baez) is throwing the ball really well. Obviously, it was unfortunate yesterday (when Baez was hit by a line drive). Scotty (Alexander) is really trying to get that sinker down. “Just all of our guys, they really haven’t hit their stride. It’s kind of what I see as opposed to the numbers. These are guys I still trust and we’re going to need them.” Reliable at times, however, is kind of the definition of unreliable. Unscored upon through his first 15 appearances this season, Floro has now been tagged for runs in three of his past five appearances (though two of the seven were unearned) with his batting average against going from .172 in those first 15 to .368 (7 for 19) with two home runs over the past five. Against the Rays on Wednesday, Floro faced four batters and retired none of them. “I know this is going to happen,” Floro said of the bad outing. “I’m just disappointed I let the team down. I come in these situations and they’re looking for me to put up a zero there. “I know I’m not going to go out there and be absolutely perfect every time. This game is way too hard. And it’s not just a month long. It’s six, seven months long depending on how far we go. … I know my pitches are good. I just couldn’t execute a couple pitches, get them in the right spot.” Floro made trouble for himself almost immediately, hitting pinch-hitter Austin Meadows with his third pitch. Back-to-back singles produced one run to give the Rays the lead. Then Floro left a 1-and-1 fastball up over the outside part of the plate and Avisail Garcia drove it to the opposite field for a three-run home run. “It’s never good to start off an inning walking a guy or hitting him like that,” Floro said. “It never ends pretty after that, really. No matter what the situation. “Just didn’t execute a four-seamer (to Garcia). Tried to go up and pulled it down. He got a hold of it. You can’t miss spots in the major leagues.” Ferguson replaced him and allowed just one hit. Before that, though, he walked a batter and hit another. Then he gave up the Rays’ second three-run home run of the inning, a shot to straightaway center field by Kevin Kiermaier. [related_articles location=”left” show_article_date=”false” article_type=”automatic-primary-section”]It was the second time Kiermaier put his stamp on the game. The Dodgers managed just five hits Wednesday, though one of them was a solo home run by Max Muncy in the sixth inning to tie the score. The Dodgers put runners at first and second with two outs that inning and Russell Martin shot a single into center field. But Kiermaier charged the ball and threw home, beating Cody Bellinger, who tried to score the go-ahead run from second. “That could have changed the game,” Roberts said. “Russell had a good at-bat right there. We had a good runner in Cody. (Kiermaier) made an 80 throw.” The Dodgers didn’t have another hit in the game. “Tough night overall,” Hill said. “Regroup and get ready for Pittsburgh.” 💯 mph pic.twitter.com/gtZT4Un6rV — MLB (@MLB) May 23, 2019 Dave Roberts talks post-game with @alannarizzo about Rich Hill's quality outing, his thoughts on playing the shift, and a tough 7th inning for the #Dodgers 'pen. pic.twitter.com/cU5nLAC53U — SportsNet LA (@SportsNetLA) May 23, 2019
