Premier League: Blackburn 0 – 1 Tottenham

first_imgPeter Crouch’s early header secured Tottenham’s first win in five matches as they edged out Blackburn and kept the pressure on the top four.Crouch nodded home Rafael van der Vaart’s cross in the third minute and the visitors defended their lead well.Heurelho Gomes made smart stops from Junior Hoilett and Mame Biram Diouf as Rovers rallied after the break.Jermain Defoe then fired straight at Paul Robinson before Christopher Samba missed a late chance to rescue a point.Tottenham’s fifth clean sheet of the season, and the first achieved without key centre-back Michael Dawson, keeps them three points behind Chelsea in the race for a Champions League spot.The visitors were nowhere near their buccaneering best and were indebted to Gomes for a string of saves in the second half, but manager Harry Redknapp will be delighted with the gritty display from a side missing several of its best players. It was also the perfect response to the north Londoners’ humiliating 4-0 FA Cup defeat by Fulham three days earlier, which had threatened to send Tottenham’s hugely promising season off the rails.Much had been made of Spurs’ burgeoning treatment table before the match, with Redknapp naming two goalkeepers on the bench, but it was one of the beneficiaries of Tottenham’s injury problems who opened the scoring.Only three minutes were on the clock when Crouch, recalled to the starting line-up, rose above Samba and directed Van der Vaart’s pinpoint cross past Robinson to score his second Premier League goal of the season.The gangly hitman’s other strike was also against Blackburn back in November, and added to the double he scored at Ewood Park in Tottenham’s victory there last season.Rovers responded well to falling behind with the pacy Hoilett twice going close, first having a shot blocked by Vedran Corluka and then seeing Gomes tip his effort wide. The visitors withstood the burst of pressure and the half soon descended into a scrappy affair as Spurs showed little inclination to add to their lead and Rovers, while enjoying plenty of possession, failed to trouble Gomes.The closest they came was a fizzing David Dunn drive that flew narrowly wide and Ryan Nelsen’s attempt to convert a Dunn free-kick, also off target.The home side fashioned a better opportunity just after the restart, Diouf beating the offside trap and forcing a good stop from Gomes.But the chance failed to herald an increase in the tempo of the match, which ambled along uneventfully until it was momentarily ignited by two fine pieces of play from Aaron Lennon.The Tottenham winger made a surging 60-yard run from just outside his own box to the edge of Blackburn’s area, where he slid the ball to Defoe whose effort was charged down well by Robinson. Lennon then created a chance for himself, cutting inside from the left before unleashing a fierce right-footed strike that ex-Tottenham keeper Robinson did well to tip over.It sparked Rovers belatedly into life, with Gomes called into action three times in a five-minute Blackburn bombardment.The Brazilian keeper first turned Hoilett’s 20-yard strike wide with a fingertip save, then made an even better stop to deny Diouf from 12 yards, before standing firm to beat away a Morten Gamst Pedersen free-kick.Spurs then appeared to be closing out the match comfortably until injury time, when Samba’s goalbound header from Hoilett’s cross was diverted just over the bar by a vital touch from Jermaine Jenas.And there was still time for Keith Andrews to fire an effort straight at Gomes as Spurs clung on for a scrappy, but significant, victory.

(AP Photo/Mark J. Terrill)ExpandANAHEIM — Ask any Angels player about the team’s recent slump – one win in seven games when the week began – and he is likely to mention how much the team misses its best player. Mike Trout’s sore right wrist was still wrapped in gauze one day after he received a cortisone injection, so he could not play on his 27th birthday.Among his many achievements, Trout boasts a .304 career batting average on his birthday, with four home runs in six games. Without him, the middle of the lineup has been under more pressure than usual to find its power stroke.It arrived quickly Tuesday. The Angels sent 11 men to the plate in the first inning of an 11-5 victory over the Detroit Tigers. They can sweep the three-game series from the Tigers, the fourth-place team in the American League Central, with a win Wednesday afternoon.The Angels’ last sweep was June 4-6 against the Kansas City Royals. OPPO. TACO. TUESDAY! 🌮@JUST_JUP pic.twitter.com/2GjllTq4rY— Angels (@Angels) August 8, 2018 “This guy works hard. He wants to achieve,” Manager Mike Scioscia said of Upton. “He’s trying to find a comfort level in the box. He hasn’t been hitting the ball out of the park like we know he can.”Ohtani’s homer was also hit to the opposite field, a 411-foot moonshot against Tigers starter Jacob Turner (0-1) that landed in the Angels’ bullpen. That was the highlight of an inning featuring six hits and a lazy error by Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias that allowed Albert Pujols to leg out a routine ground ball.Before last week, Ohtani had not hit a home run to straight-away left field as an Angel. Now, two of his last three homers have been hit in that direction. Ohtani said through his interpreter that this isn’t the result of a specific adjustment at the plate.“I haven’t really changed my approach,” he said. “Back when I was in Japan, that was one of my strong points, going to the opposite field. … Some of the hard-hit balls to the opposite field, there’s a lot of coincidence involved.”Turner, summoned from the minor leagues earlier in the day, was charged with seven runs – five earned – in his only inning of work. The Tigers needed five relief pitchers to finish the game.Eric Young Jr., who is holding down center field until Trout returns, made his second diving catch in as many days. This time he robbed James McCann on a sinking line drive in the right-center field gap, then threw out Ronny Rodriguez at first base to complete a double play in the sixth inning. Sign up for Home Turf and get exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily. Subscribe here.Shohei Ohtani hit a home run, his 12th this season, and later stole his fifth base. Justin Upton hit his 22nd home run before the announced crowd of 35,824 at Angel Stadium. Every Angels position player reached base at least once.Three double plays, including two from the outfield, helped the Angels overcome a shaky start by Andrew Heaney. The left-hander allowed five runs in five innings but managed to even his record at 7-7.“It’s nice to not pitch all that well and get a win,” Heaney said.Upton, Ohtani, Kole Calhoun, Andrelton Simmons and Francisco Arcia each had two of the Angels’ 13 hits.Upton was so frustrated by one strikeout Monday, he slammed his bat on the ground and snapped it into two pieces over his knee. The veteran left fielder rebounded with a 2-for-5 performance out of the number-2 slot in the batting order. The opposite-field blast was his first home run of any kind since July 29.

Yet after the bottom of the first inning, the Angels never trailed. Right-hander Jim Johnson and left-hander Jose Alvarez each threw a scoreless inning out of the bullpen.Left-hander Williams Jerez, who was acquired from the Boston Red Sox in the Ian Kinsler trade, made his major league debut in the eighth inning. He finished the game with two scoreless frames, becoming the 30th different Angels pitcher to appear in a game this season – one shy of a club record.The Tigers will send a left-handed pitcher to the mound in the series finale, Blaine Hardy. Ohtani has never faced Hardy before but he has struggled against southpaws, slugging just .246 compared to .635 against right-handers. This will present another challenge for the middle of the Angels’ batting order, with Trout likely to miss his seventh consecutive game.Before the game, Scioscia was asked to compare the 24-year-old Ohtani as a hitter to Trout as a 19-year-old rookie.“They’re comparable in how far they can hit a ball,” Scioscia said. “Shohei will show more pull power at times, while Mike is more straightaway. Right now, where Shohei is, and where Mike was when he came up when he was 19, they’re at different stages. Shohei has more experience because he played at a very high level in Japan. Mike had just played Triple-A ball and not even a full season.“They both have that ‘wow’ factor, there’s no doubt about that.” Seven runs right off the bat? That’s always fun, am I right?! 🙌🙌🙌 pic.twitter.com/rlPKv1Qom6— Angels (@Angels) August 8, 2018 “At that point in time, a 7-5 game, it could have been a totally different game,” Young said. “A big swing changed it back in our favor – getting the double play, getting out of the inning and keeping the game at 7-5.”The Angels scored three runs in the bottom of the sixth, on the two-run homer by Upton and a sacrifice fly by Simmons that scored Ohtani. At 10-5, the game was safely out of reach.Iglesias and Nicholas Castellanos hit back-to-back singles against Heaney in the first inning. Iglesias scored on a ground-rule double by Jeimer Candelario that bounced into the field-level seats in left, giving Detroit an early 1-0 lead.Related Articles Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter “He’s the energy guy….We’re lucky to have him”- @JUST_JUP on @EYJr’s 🔥 performance both with his glove and his bat.@Angels | @MLBONFOX pic.twitter.com/RcnUDoIcpF— FOX Sports West (@FoxSportsWest) August 8, 2018last_img read more
