A’s pitcher Brett Anderson is healing quickly

first_imgANAHEIM — Left hander Brett Anderson isn’t expected to miss his next start, despite being forced out of his last one by a mild oblique strain.Anderson left in the sixth inning of Saturday’s loss to the Houston Astros, but the extra day of rest provided by Monday’s offday proved beneficial, manager Bob Melvin said.“He came in a little bit sore (Sunday),” Melvin said. “I thought he would, but I think we’re on schedule for his start.”Anderson’s turn in the rotation would come Friday against …last_img

Field Day with Jordan Hoewischer: Hope for Ohio

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest  Leave a CommentIn the latest episode of Field Day with Jordan Hoewischer, Ohio Farm Bureau’s Director of Water Quality and Research steers from those topics as he talks with Marissa Mulligan, policy outreach fellow for the Ohio Farm Bureau, about an epidemic many in Ohio are drowning in – the opioid crisis.Hoewischer and Mulligan discussed the impact of the opioid epidemic in rural communities and how Ohio Farm Bureau is helping by hosting Hope for Ohio events around the state. Hope for Ohio is a series of regional events that focus on peer-to-peer prevention strategies at a local level.Field Day with Jordan Hoewischer is an ongoing series of conversations with experts and leaders who are helping to shape and secure the future of Ohio’s ag industry for generations to come.Following are some highlights from this episode. Complete transcript Q: How has the opioid crisis bubbled up to the top as such a widespread issue not only in Ohio but around the country?A: The statistics alone are pretty overwhelming. So, drug overdose, accidental drug overdose is the number one cause of death in Ohio. It’s surpassed car accidents. The national average for overdose deaths per 100,000 people ages 15 to 64 is 22.5. Ohio’s average is 39.5. We rank third in the nation behind West Virginia and New Hampshire. In some of the southern counties where it’s hit really hard those numbers can reach 66.1 and Brown County is 70.8. It’s a huge issue. 72,000 people died in 2017 due to accidental overdose.Q: Why Farm Bureau? We know that we have that rural tie but what can Farm Bureau do to help move the needle on this issue?A: I think our members really came to us because there’s not only that personal connection but there’s also that business aspect. It’s really hard for them to hire people that can pass drug tests. I have a friend that’s literally facing this every day. She hauls manure and she can’t have someone driving her trucks that can’t pass a drug test. I think a lot of farmers are facing that issue. I think that’s why they really came to us and said, you know, there’s something that we need to do here. We’ve really fallen into the role of youth led prevention because I think that’s where we can help the best as an organization and touch the people that we already have strong communication with.Q: How do we overcome negative connotations about people who struggle with drug abuse and misuse and share what is happening?A: I’ve been really encouraging people to look at the (Ohio Opioid Education Alliance) Denial, Ohio campaign. It’s really good. Everyone should look it up. They gave me a stat one day that 66 percent of people think that the opioid crisis is an issue. But only 19 percent of that 66 percent actually think that it could be an issue for their family. So I think there’s a huge disconnect between it being an issue and that issue will never come to my family, which is just not true.Click here for more information about the Ohio Opioid Education Alliance’s Denial, Ohio campaign.To learn more about the Farm Town Strong campaign, a collaboration between American Farm Bureau and National Farmers Union, click here.   Leave a Commentlast_img read more

Womens lacrosse falls to Big Ten foe

The No. 19 Ohio State women’s lacrosse team faced the No. 18 Penn State Nittany Lions Sunday afternoon at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. The Buckeyes fell to American Lacrosse Conference rivals Penn State, 18-12. But for the Buckeyes it was a tale of two halves. The Buckeyes jumped out to an early start in the first half as they were 9-6 with less than two minutes to go, with five unanswered goals. But the Nittany Lions also came out firing and over-shot OSU 17-15. But this did not overwhelm OSU goalie Annie Carruthers who had 11 saves in the game. “To prepare for a team like Penn State, we look at patterns they have when shooting and put more pressure on them,” Carruthers said. “I know I look a lot at where they shoot, and if they’ve been going for one spot, I overemphasize that.”  Carruthers leads the ALC in saves per game with 12.2. Although PSU overshot the Buckeyes, OSU lead 9-7 at the half. Alayna Markwordt, Brittney Zerhusen and Gabby Capuzzi, went into halftime with two goals apiece.   In the second half, the Nittany Lions came back with a purpose, as they took their first lead since early in the game, 13-10 with more than 19 minutes to play. OSU’s Jayme Beard’s goal at 17:38 was one of only three goals for the Buckeyes in the second half.  Zerhusen had three goals in the game but still felt OSU didn’t get to the ball as often as it should have. “I think every year with Penn State it’s a tough battle, no matter how each of our seasons are going,” Zerhusen said. “When it comes down to it, you have to have possession of the ball. We just couldn’t get the possession off the draw. That was a definite game-changer that we’re going to have to work on.” At the end of the game, PSU overshot OSU 38-23, while OSU had 13 turnovers to PSU’s 11. “It was hard to come back when we didn’t have the ball on our sticks. It was frustrating because we did it in the first half,” Coach Sue Stimmel said. Ohio State will face Notre Dame Thursday at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium at 5 p.m. read more

It was tough, emotional as he created so many relationships within the club.
