Game Wrap: Brewers defeat Dodgers, lead NLCS 2-1


Mason Crosby hits FG as time expires to help Packers top 49ers

A pick, a penalty and a game-winning kick. Quite a final minute for the Green Bay Packers. Mason Crosby kicked a 27-yard field goal as time expired to cap an 81-yard drive set up by Kevin King’s interception with 1:07 left, and the Packers outlasted the San Francisco 49ers for a 33-30 win on Monday night. The final drive was extended after 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman was called for an illegal contact penalty on third-and-15 that wiped out a sack of Rodgers with 43 seconds left. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers rushed up the middle for a 21-yard gain on the next

Brewers blank Dodgers to retake NLCS lead

A veteran starter, an intimidating bullpen and a twice-demoted shortstop who is suddenly flashing power helped the Milwaukee Brewers take a 2-1 lead in the NL Championship Series. Jhoulys Chacin combined with four relievers on a five-hitter and Orlando Arcia hit a two-run homer in a 4-0 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday. Los Angeles loaded the bases against Jeremy Jeffress in the ninth inning, but the struggling closer shut the door. He struck out Yasmani Grandal and pinch-hitter Brian Dozier to complete Milwaukee’s third shutout in six playoff games this year. “Our guys that we’re giving the

Boston Red Sox ace Chris Sale was released from the hospital Monday and will rejoin the team in Houston before Game 3 of the AL Championship Series. Sale was released from Massachusetts General Hospital, where he had gone because of a stomach illness after he pitched in the series opener. He was hospitalized Sunday night for observation. Manager Alex Cora said “everything is fine” and Sale would be back with the team before Game 3 on Tuesday. When asked about Sale’s status for the rest of the ALCS, Cora said he wanted to see the pitcher first before making that

Paul Allen, co-founder of Microsoft, owner of NFL’s Seahawks and NBA’s Blazers, dead at 65

Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, the man who persuaded school-friend Bill Gates to drop out of Harvard to start what became the world’s biggest software company, died on Monday at the age of 65, his family said. Allen left Microsoft in 1983, before the company became a corporate juggernaut, following a dispute with Gates, but his share of their original partnership allowed him to spend the rest of his life and billions of dollars on yachts, art, rock music, sports teams, brain research and real estate. Allen died from complications of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a type of cancer, the Allen family said

Changing of the guard as Scott Arfield takes over as Canada soccer captain

A changing of the guard is under way with the Canadian men’s soccer team with Scott Arfield taking over as permanent captain from Atiba Hutchinson. Health permitting, Arfield will lead out the 79th-ranked Canadians against No. 177 Dominica in CONCACAF Nation League qualifying play Tuesday at BMO Field. The Glasgow Rangers midfielder also wore the captain’s armband for last month’s 8-0 win over the U.S. Virgin Islands. Arfield, who left practice early Sunday as a precautionary move with a minor knock, has won 13 caps for Canada since making his debut in March 2016. The 35-year-old Hutchinson, arguably Canada’s best

Gleb and Vadim Alekseenko banned from tennis for life for match fixing

Ukrainian twins Gleb and Vadim Alekseenko have been banned from tennis for life and each fined $250,000 (£190,018) for match fixing. The pair were found guilty of multiple match-fixing offences at a number of ITF Futures tournaments between June 2015 and January 2016. They also arranged for another person to bet on matches which they contrived the result. The case was based on an investigation by the Tennis Integrity Unit. The match-fixing offences occurred at tournaments in Romania, Russia, Germany and Turkey on the Futures tour, tennis’ third-tier of tournaments. Vadim Alekseenko is 1,113th in the ATP rankings, having reached

Kentwool Introduces Infused Golf Socks To Relieve Foot Aches And Pains On The Course

I prefer to walk as often as I can when I tee it up, getting in my steps and miles while I chase the little white ball around the golf course. But like a lot of golfers, I’ll start to feel it in my feet, particularly while playing through a number of nagging little injuries and a touch of arthritis.

So, when I heard about Kentwool’s newest socks, my curiosity was piqued. I’ve played in the company’s soft and breathable wool socks before, but a product also infused with therapeutic ingredients intended to ease foot pain? How exactly would that work?

Kentwool’s new SensationWool sock is infused with therapeutic ingredients for foot aches and painKentwool

Kentwool has just introduced its new SensationWool sock that features its usual superfine Merino wool combined with Nufabrx nylon that’s infused with capsaicin as well as a synthetic cooling agent. Essentially, it’s a combination of warming and cooling ingredients similar to those found in topical pain treatments that provide temporary relief for aches and pains. Only there’s no mess or discomfort from slathering one of those over-the-counter creams on your feet.

“We’ve always been committed to comfort, that is the foundation of our company,” Kentwool President Lauren Hubbard tells me after rehashing the story of former company CEO Mark Kent, who founded the business in 2008 after being exceedingly uncomfortable on the golf course. “So, it made a lot of sense for us when we were positioned with this new and innovative fiber that had been treated and was able to take comfort to the next level.”

The infused ingredients in the socks are lab-tested to last 30 wash cycles, which Hubbard says is typically six months with average wear. In other words, a couple pairs ($24.99 each) will get most golfers through a season. The socks themselves will last far longer, of course.

During multiple rounds of research and development, Hubbard said there were long conversations and extensive testing to determine how long the infused ingredients would and should last.

“That was a space we felt was comfortable,” she said of the 30-wash time frame. “We also wanted the ingredients to still feel good to people. You could really ramp up the amount of infused ingredient in the product, but that has the potential to produce a much stronger sensation. We wanted it to be a nice balance of reasonable life with a great-feeling sock.”

Does it work? I tested the socks around the house and the office before taking them out on the golf course for a few rounds. I will say that once I started walking a lot – on the course – I really noticed the warming and cooling effect usually associated with muscle and joint pain creams. I tend to like that soothing feeling (I’ve applied topical creams to my back and shoulders pre- and post-round plenty of times, but never to my feet), so I was a big fan of the results.

The interesting thing was that I felt the sensation more acutely in the top of my feet; I surmised this was because my skin isn’t as tough there. And even after I took off the socks, the therapeutic “tingling” lasted for a good hour after I finished my most recent round and was sitting at the 19th hole with my playing partners. Another friend I had test the socks said he felt the effects a bit more in the underside of his feet, which makes sense since I’d been told that the intensity and location of the sensation will vary on each individual’s body chemistry.

For now, Kentwool just offers the socks in natural color (off-white), but is looking into making additional colors and adding a crew height depending on how popular the line is. The initial run sold out quickly.

Hubbard says Kentwool is “really investing” into the infusion of different active ingredients into fiber. The company behind the Nufabrx platform (Textile-Based Delivery Inc.) has a patented method of embedding vitamins, supplements and medicines into fabric that can be programmed for controlled release into the skin. “There is a lot of buzz about that being the next wave of development in apparel and a very big development in the textile industry,” Hubbard adds.

So, is this infused technology the next big thing in golf apparel? I’m not sure yet, but this was a good way to dip my foot in it and I’m intrigued by the results.
