Whatever has come adversity-wise, they faced it and powered right through it.”Despite putting 30 players on the injured list this season, New York (100-54) wrapped up first place with eight games to spare and made Aaron Boone the first manager to win 100 games in each of his first two major league seasons.The Yankees open the playoffs on Oct. 4, likely against Minnesota, which leads the AL Central, or the wild-card winner.Masahiro Tanaka (11-8), in line to start the opener, allowed Kole Calhoun’s home run leading off the fourth. The Angels (69-84), who have lost eight of 10 and are playing the final weeks of the regular season without AL MVP frontrunner Mike Trout, designated hitter Shohei Ohtani and outfielder Justin Upton, had just four hits in seven innings off Tanaka, who struck out six and walked one.Angels starting pitcher Andrew Heaney (4-6) gave up six runs and five hits in five-plus innings.

(AP Photo/Mary Altaffer)ExpandNEW YORK — The resilient New York Yankees powered their way to the club’s first American League East division title since 2012, routing the short-handed Angels 9-1 Thursday night behind three RBIs each from old mainstay Brett Gardner and newcomer DJ LeMahieu.A day after wasting a chance to clinch first place, the homer-happy Yankees went ahead when LeMahieu hit a three-run drive in the second inning and breezed to their 100th win.Gardner, among just two holdovers from their last World Series championship team in 2009, added a solo shot in the fourth and then hit a two-run double in the sixth. Cameron Maybin and Clint Frazier homered for good measure in the eighth, and Aroldis Chapman struck out Albert Pujols to end it as fans’ cellphones flashed to record to moment.Players lined up for handshakes and hugs, more exuberantly than usual, but there was no wild celebration on the field.

The 27-year-old right-hander, who is 18-4, was placed on administrative leave under Major League Baseball’s domestic violence policy earlier in the day.New York’s 19th AL East title was its first following a run of 13 in 17 years that started in Derek Jeter’s rookie season. The Yankees, led by young stars Aaron Judge, Gary Sánchez and Gleyber Torres, will be making their 21st postseason appearance in 25 years and 55th overall – 22 more than any other team.And they will head to October following their 21st 100-win season, their first in back-to-back years since 2002-04.New York moved into sole possession of the lead for good on June 15 with the start of an eight-game winning streak, beginning a spurt of 13 victories in 14 games that ended the month. The Yankees led by 6-1/2 games at the All-Star Game, won seven of their first nine after the break and have led by seven to 11-1/2 games since. And they achieved their success despite so many players landing on the injured list, the most in the major leagues since at least 2004.After Wednesday’s 3-2 loss, the Yankees waited in their clubhouse for three hours until just before 1 a.m., hoping second-place Tampa Bay would lose to the Dodgers in Los Angeles and ensure the division title for New York. But the Rays rallied in the ninth and defeated the Dodgers in 11 innings.“It was probably actually a good little team building, bonding, one of those times you enjoy being together,” Boone said,Protective plastic remained overnight wrapping the six large-screen televisions in the Yankees clubhouse, a sign that the bubbly and beer celebration was not too far off.LeMahieu’s homer, which followed a rare infield hit by slow-legged catcher Austin Romine with two outs, landed about three rows over the scoreboard in right-center, giving him career bests of 25 homers and 97 RBIs in his first season with the Yankees. Gardner also set career highs for homers (26) and RBIs (69), and New York extended its team record with 292 long balls.Related Articles Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter last_img read more

Berg dam nears completion

first_img27 October 2005The first water from the Berg Water Project near Franschhoek will flow through Cape Town’s taps in two years’ time, 18 years after the project was first mooted.The project will yield about 81-million cubic metres annually by the end of 2007, an 18% increase in the yield of the Western Cape water system. The gross storage capacity of the dam will be 130-million cubic metres.Highest dam wall in South AfricaThe structure, currently about 30% complete, will boast the highest concrete-faced, rock-filled dam wall in South Africa. The dam wall, including its foundation, will be 70 metres high and 990 metres long.It is a unique project, says Mike Killick, the city of Cape Town’s head of bulk water resource and infrastructure planning.The debt raised to finance the project will be repaid by the implementing and funding agent, TCTA, through income from the sale of water to the city of Cape Town.In today’s terms the project will cost between R1.4-billion and R1.5-billion.Water savingsHowever, there is one condition: Capetonians will have to achieve a 20% water saving by 2010, a target that is well on track, says Killick.The project comprises a dam on the farm Skuifraam, about 6 kilometres outside Franschhoek, and a pumping scheme about 9 kilometres away. The project involves the erection of a dam wall on the Berg River and a supplement scheme, also on the Berg River, but downstream of the confluence of the Dwars River.The supplementary scheme includes pump stations and about 10 kilometres of pipelines to transfer water from the abstraction works in the Berg River to the dam and into the Western Cape water system.The process began in 1989, when the Department of Water Affairs and the city council initiated the Western Cape systems analysis, which looked at water available to the city, other local authorities and agriculture.The project is a good example of intergovernmental co-operation between the City of Cape Town, the national Department of Water Affairs and TCTA.Source: CITYWORKS Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more
