Taylor increases tally as Somerset win again

first_imgLONDON,  CMC – West Indies fast bowler Jerome Taylor moved his tally of wickets to 15 from eight matches, after grabbing a brace to help fire Somerset to a 29-run victory over Glamorgan and move to the top of the group standings in the T20 Blast here. Playing at Taunton on Sunday, the 34-year-old picked up two for 30 from his four overs as Glamorgan, chasing 211 for victory, were held to 181 for nine from their allotted 20 overs.Opener Craig Meschede top-scored with 35 and fellow South African Chris Cooke chipped in with 25 but the remainder of the Glamorgan batting faltered badly.Right-armer Taylor got the first breakthrough when he removed opener Aneurin Donald for five in the second over with the score on six. The Jamaican then returned late to put the final nail in Glamorgan’s coffin, bowling Ruaidhri Smith for two in the 17th over as the visitors lost seven wickets for 82 runs.Taylor has had an impressive run since joining Somerset last month, with a best of five for 15 against Hampshire two weeks ago.Earlier, the hosts raised 210 for eight off their 20 overs, with New Zealander Corey Anderson blasting 72 from 30 balls and James Hildreth scoring 47 also from 30 deliveries. Anderson struck four fours and half-dozen sixes, adding 40 for the fifth wicket with Hildreth and a further 57 for the sixth wicket with Lewis Gregory (22).Somerset lead the South group with 20 points, two clear of Gloucestershire.last_img read more

Player Profiles: Manny Machado

first_imgPlease follow and like us: The Baltimore Orioles have had one of the best third baseman in the history of baseball in Brooks Robinson.  Enter Manny Machado who came up to the Majors at the young age of 19.The Orioles drafted Machado in the 2010 MLB draft, he was the third overall pick.  Machado made his Major League debut in 2012, his first full season was in 2013.  Machado is one of the reasons for the Orioles return to winning and was a major reason why the Orioles had the best defense in baseball history in 2013.Machado never really played third base in the minors, he spent most of his time playing short stop.  With little practice at third base the Orioles brought Machado up and had him play third everyday.Defensively Machado is one of the best defenders I have ever seen play the game.  Machado’s knock on him as a prospect was that he would make lazy errors, this has not been seen at the Major League level.  Machado won the Platinum Glove in 2013 being voted the best defender in league.Machado does not lack offensively, still developing as a hitter he has a career .279 average and 21 home runs prior to the 2014 season.  Machado has been a doubles machine and hits the balks to all fields.  There are no real wholes in Machado’s game offensively or defensively.Machado’s stellar play has made him a fan favorite in Baltimore and is one of Buck Showalter’s favorite players.I worry that the Orioles may over use Machado, his knee injury late in 2013 was evidence of that.  It is so hard to take Machado out of the lineup but I think he needs some rest.The future is bright for Machado and I think he will be an All-Star for years.  If Machado stays healthy and keeps his head on straight I can see him in the Baseball Hall of Fame.Here are some of Machado’s stats.
