Kjetil Jansrud stretched Norway’s winning streak in the men’s World Cup super-G to a record-equaling seven seasons on Sunday.
Jansrud secured his third discipline title in four years by winning the penultimate race of the season. His Norwegian teammates Aksel Lund Svindal (2012-14) and Aleksander Aamodt Kilde (2016) also won the globe in recent years.
Norway matched the best mark set by Austria Leighton Vander Esch Jersey Elite , which won the super-G title seven years in a row from 1998-2004.
”I am a bit proud,” Jansrud said. ”The globe means a lot to me. It’s really great to get it for racing well during the whole season.”
Svindal was Jansrud’s closest challenger in this season’s standings but he failed to finish his run. He missed a gate after landing a long jump.
”The course was brutally fast, almost like a downhill,” Svindal said. ”So the jump was bigger than expected. A stupid mistake but it can happen.”
Svindal’s mishap enabled Jansrud to build an insurmountable 138-point lead with only the season-ending race at the World Cup finals in Sweden on Thursday remaining.
”It went well but I am not unbeatable,” said Jansrud, who also took the super-G titles in 2014-15 and last season. He also won Olympic bronze in Pyeongchang last month, adding to his gold from the Sochi Games four years ago and silver from the 2017 world championships.
”It was my plan to ski fast and try to decide the fight for the globe today,” he said. ”Now I can really enjoy the finals.”
Jansrud timed 1 minute, 33.21 seconds on the Olympiabakken course to lead Olympic silver medalist Beat Feuz of Switzerland by 0.22 seconds. Brice Roger of France, a late starter wearing bib 49, came 0.33 behind in third for his second career podium finish.
Olympic super-G champion Matthias Mayer trailed Jansrud by just 0.18 halfway down his run but the Austrian caught a bump and skied through a gate.
”It’s a shame Aksel and Matthias went out Devin Hester Jersey Youth ,” Jansrud said. ”They were both strong so it could have been a different race.”
It was Jansrud’s 21st career win, matching the career tally of 1994 overall champion Kjetil Andre Aamodt. Svindal is the only Norwegian skier with more wins – 35.
Jansrud became the only skier to win multiple super-G races this season. He won the opener in Beaver Creek, Colorado, in December but the next three events were all won by different racers.
”The season was good,” he said. ”Maybe a few wins less than last year but in the end I have good feeling. I can really enjoy it.”
Max Scherzer had gone more than two months without a defeat. Now the Washington Nationals ace has lost consecutive starts for the first time in nearly three years.
Marco Estrada took a shutout into the seventh inning, Devon Travis homered and the Toronto Blue Jays beat Scherzer and the Nationals 2-0 on Saturday.
Scherzer (10-3) gave up four hits, including the two-run homer by Travis, in six innings. The two-time NL Cy Young Award winner struck out 10, increasing his major league-leading total to 152.
Scherzer has 10 double-digit strikeout games this season, four more than any other pitcher.
Beaten by a two-run home run from San Francisco’s Brandon Crawford in his previous outing, Scherzer saw this start turn on another two-run homer Derwin James Youth Jersey , with Travis jumping on a hanging slider in the fifth.
”This is Major League Baseball,” Scherzer said. ”One pitch can cost you a game. Now I’ve had it happen twice in back-to-back starts. You can get beat like that. I’ve got to keep executing every single pitch I throw.”
Scherzer last lost two straight starts in a three-game skid in August 2015.
”He pitched really well,” Nationals manager Dave Martinez said. ”One mistake.”
Travis homered for the second game in a row, going deep to right after Scherzer hit Luke Maile with a pitch.
”He doesn’t make many mistakes so when he does, you’d better hope you take advantage of it,” Travis said. ”If not, it’s probably the only one you’re going to get for the day.”
Estrada (4-6) allowed three hits, one a bunt single, over 6 2/3 innings to win back-to-back starts for the first time this season.
”He’s a big-game pitcher and that’s a really tough lineup over there,” Travis said of Estrada. ”He did a fantastic job today.”
The Blue Jays posted their first shutout since Aug. 10, 2017 against the Yankees Michael Gallup Cowboys Jersey , snapping a franchise-long 117-game span between shutouts.
Trea Turner hit a two-out double in the sixth, but Estrada struck out Bryce Harper looking. An exasperated Harper was caught looking again to end the eighth, stranding a runner at first. Harper went 0 for 4 with two strikeouts, dropping his average to .221.
”What I think I’d like for him to do is maybe not swing so much,” Martinez said. ”He’s been swinging a lot, and I really think now is the time to take less swings and just go play.”
Washington has been blanked three times in five games, including Scherzer’s 2-0 loss to San Francisco on June 10 and a 3-0 road loss to the Yankees on June 12.
”It’s surprising but it happens,” Martinez said. ”Sometimes you run into good pitchers.”
Estrada left after Michael A. Taylor’s two-out single put runners at first and second in the seventh. Danny Barnes came on and needed two pitches to retire Wilmer Difo on a groundout.
Barnes and Aaron Loup each got two outs and former Nationals closer Tyler Clippard finished the three-hitter for his third save in six opportunities.
Travis said it can be tough to get a good night’s rest when Scherzer is scheduled to pitch the following day.
”He’s a guy when you go to sleep at night, you know you’re facing Max Scherzer the next day and your heart starts to beat a little bit already,” Travis said. ”You know you’re up for a big challenge. He’s the best in the game.”
SEEN YOU BEFORE
Travis was drafted by Detroit, where Scherzer played from 2010 to 2014. During his first spring training with the Tigers Cheap Derrius Guice Jersey , Travis faced Scherzer multiple times during intrasquad games.
Scherzer hadn’t given up a homer to a right-handed batter since Giancarlo Stanton connected for Miami on Aug. 7, 2017.
Toronto has won six straight at home after losing 10 of its previous 11 at Rogers Centre.
Nationals: 1B Matt Adams was out of the lineup one day after taking a pitch off his left hand while attempting to bunt. X-rays Friday were inconclusive because of swelling, so Adams will have another X-ray when the Nationals return home Monday. With Adams unavailable, Daniel Murphy started at first, his first defensive action since returning from knee surgery Tuesday.
Nationals RHP Tanner Roark (3-7, 3.63) faces Blue Jays RHP Sam Gaviglio (2-2, 3.66) in Sunday’s series finale. Roark has won just once in his past seven starts. Gaviglio allowed a season-worst five earned runs in Monday’s loss at Tampa Bay, his second straight losing decision.
