Nash triple does it for Lamar

first_imgLamar sports informationBEAUMONT — The late theatrics continued for the Lamar baseball team.This time it was Jake Nash’s three-run triple in the eighth inning that broke a 1-1 tie and gave the Cardinals a 4-1 win over UT Rio Grande Valley Friday night at Vincent-Beck Stadium in non-conference action.The Cardinals (8-3) entered the eighth inning in a 1-1 tie when UTRGV (3-7) pitcher Zach Martinez (0-1) took the mound and surrendered a leadoff single deep to shortstop Caden Rosholdt from Trey Silvers. Silvers took second base two batters later when Chaneng Varela drew a walk.Next up, Stijn van der Meer was hit in the back by a pitch, which gave Nash the opportunity to send home the go-ahead run with only one out. He drove a 1-1 count pitch deep to right center and raced all the way around to third base, but over-slid the bag in the approach and was called out, but not before he picked up his now-team leading 12th run batted in on the season.“Timely hitting wasn’t there for us until Nash got to the plate in the eighth,” said head coach Jim Gilligan. “He got a low and outside fastball and did exactly what he should’ve done. I was happy for him, it was super.”He was also the Cardinal who drove in the first run of the game in the third inning that gave LU a 1-0 advantage. Van der Meer reached on a leadoff single over the third baseman’s head and scored from second (after a wild pitch) on Nash’s single up the middle. It was the third time this campaign that van der Meer reached base and was driven in immediately on a base knock from Nash.His four RBI on Friday was the second time this season and second-straight game he drove four home.Cardinal starter Will Hibbs (2-0) had another great outing with just one run allowed on seven hits and one walk. The senior struck out four in eight innings and hurled 115 pitches. Six batters were able to get into scoring position, but he was able to manage the damage in nearly every inning.His lone run was in the fifth frame, and came on a double to left field from Rosholt that sent Austin Oakes to the plate. Oakes reached on a single that just scooted by second baseman Gavin Tristan. Hibbs worked two perfect innings and had two more where he only faced the minimum.“Will looked great tonight,” said Gilligan. “Obviously he did a good job of pitching out of jams and minimizing any damage.”Jimmy Johnson locked up his first career save at LU with a perfect inning that consisted of two strikeouts and a groundout. He took over in the ninth and threw 15 pitches.“Jimmy had unhittable stuff, and that is the second Friday game he has done that for us,” said Gilligan. “That is professional stuff right there. He was throwing hard and on the knees.”Nash was joined by Bryndan Arredondo with two hits in the contest. Arredondo had four trips while Nash had five. Van der Meer scored two runs in the game and Silvers and Varela scored the other two. Cutter McDowell and van der Meer were given free passes twice.Martinez took the loss on one-third inning with three runs allowed on one hit and one walk. Johnny Gonzalez started the contest for the Vaqueros and worked 4 2/3 frames and gave up one run on six hits and five walks. The UTRGV staff combined for seven free bases on walks to LU.The Cardinals will look to take the series at 2 p.m. today. The finale will be played at 1 p.m. on Sunday.last_img read more

Society: don’t delay PII renewal

first_imgThe Law Society has urged firms not to wait to secure indemnity insurance this year despite uncertainty being lifted about minimum cover requirements.The Solicitors Regulation Authority confirmed this week it will not seek to reduce the compulsory minimum cover to £500,000 in time for this year’s renewal period – a decision widely welcomed across the legal and insurance sectors.While the regulator had wanted to implement the change as soon as possible, it must wait for approval from oversight regulator the Legal Services Board.But despite this issue being put to one side, Society president Andrew Caplen said that this is not a sign that firms can be complacent about securing re-insurance.Around 95% of firms are expected to be working to the 1 October deadline, with brokers expecting to handle renewals until the last minute.Caplen said the market indications suggest that capacity should be less of a problem this year, but he warned any firm that has not begun preparation will face ‘potentially serious consequences’.‘We have had no catastrophic unrated insurer failure this year and there has been some limited new insurer entry into the smaller firm sectors and the larger sectors. Nevertheless firms should not delay renewing their PII or else they risk entering the extended indemnity period, incurring higher premiums or even having to close their practices.’Caplen said the Law Society will work with the SRA on future insurance policies, which they believe will produce more targeted regulation.He stressed the need for a debate about the balance between competition and consumer protection, especially in light of the LSB’s decision to allow accountants to operate without comparable insurance obligations.Ged Wood, PII manager at broker Wesleyan, agreed that the SRA’s postponement will bring certainty to the PII market this year, particularly as some firms had held off renewing until a decision had been made.‘The delay means there is going to be a surge of applications to brokers and insurers in the next few weeks,’ he added. ‘Finding the right level of PII protection at the right price from a reputable provider can be a time-consuming process so our advice is always to start early and work with a good broker who can help you navigate your way through the range of insurers.’last_img read more

US Will Not Provide Names of Persons Slapped with Visa Restrictions…

first_imgLynch said it is the Secretary of State who has the power to lift the visa restrictions at any time. CMC Speaking during a virtual press briefing, on Thursday, the Ambassador said records are confidential under US law – so we are not able to identify the individuals or provide details on any individual visa case.” She also refused to provide the total number of those who are facing the visa restrictions but reiterated that their family members may also face similar visa restrictions. Lynch admitted that the Government of Guyana was not formally informed of the visa restrictions, indicating that a public statement was made by the US Secretary of State and that statement was widely reported. The events following the March 2 elections, some of which I witnessed, indicate that there are forces that have repeatedly refused to accept the will of the people at the ballot box”. Lynch said the actions by the US Secretary of State sends a clear message about the consequences attached to “subverting democracy and the rule of law which pose a danger to us and our hemispheric partners”.center_img GEORGETOWN, Guyana– United States Ambassador to Guyana Sarah-Ann Lynch says that in the wake of the current political situation in the county, she will not be providing the names of the persons who will have their visas revoked by the US government. She added that the United States has been expressing its concerns over the situation in Guyana for several weeks and remains a friend of Guyana even as it continues to call for a final declaration based on the vote recount. The announcement of the visa restrictions was made on Wednesday by the US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo who said the restrictions were targeting persons the US believes are undermining democracy in Guyana, as the country still waits for a final declaration of the results from the elections. United States Ambassador to Guyana Sarah-Ann Lynch Questioned about whether the US intends to take any further actions against Guyanese officials, the US Ambassador said she would not be able to comment on that.last_img read more
