Two batters later, Hannah Dossett stepped in with two outs and a runner on base. Down 1-2 in the count, SU head coach Mike Bosch yelled, “Battle here 10!” to Dossett, who wears No. 10.Then Siena starter Danielle Cacciola stepped back, grabbed a handful of dirt and tossed it aside. She had already given up two runs in the inning.“When we got down 4-1, I just asked them to you know, battle and compete,” Bosch said. “And they responded with three that inning and three the next inning.”On the next pitch, Alicia Hansen one-hopped the “ACC” sign in dead center, scoring Dossett and evening the score at four. It was the fifth hit for the Orange in the inning, the fourth which came on the first pitch of the at-bat.That aggressive approach from the middle of the lineup propelled Syracuse (27-21, 9-11 Atlantic Coast) to an 8-6 game 2 win over Siena (21-18, 6-6 Mid Atlantic Athletic) on Thursday at SU Softball Stadium. The Orange won game 1 in five innings, 9-1.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse’s two through seven hitters combined to go 13-for-21 in the game. Out of the two hole, Rachel Burkhardt went 2-for-4 with two runs scored. Sydney O’Hara went 4-for-4 with three RBI in the cleanup spot. Dossett and Hansen combined to go 5-for-7 from the six and seven holes, respectively.“We had a lot of good at bats, a lot of line drives,” Bosch said. “Especially out of the middle of our order.”In the fourth, SU took advantage of a throwing error by Saints catcher Sammy Smaldone. With Kelsey Johnson at second, a wild pitch to Corinne Ozanne sent the ball ricocheting off the backstop, prompting Johnson to sprint toward third.The ball skidded right to Smaldone, who fired toward third base to try to gun down Johnson. But, with Ozanne standing as still as a statue in the box, Smaldone’s throw hit Ozanne’s bat. The ball trickled near the SU dugout and Johnson scored easily.Two walks, a single and a sac fly later, the Orange had again put up three runs for the second consecutive inning. The three-run fourth gave SU a 7-1 lead that was just enough for Jocelyn Cater to earn the win.In the sixth, O’Hara injured her left leg on the bases. She left the game and exited the dugout on crutches. But with four hits in game 2, O’Hara was in the thick of the Orange’s offensive explosion.At 12:30 p.m., two and a half hours before game 1’s first pitch, SU watched film on how Siena’s pitchers attack hitters. Typically, SU will only study the conference opponents, but Bosch wanted to give his hitters an idea of what they would see in the games.“It’s not an hour long class session,” Bosch said. “It’s 15, 20 minutes so we feel like we’re at least a little prepared of what we’re going to get.”Siena pitchers are reliant on screwballs and curveballs to get hitters out, Bosch said. They didn’t throw many changeups nor did they change the heights of their pitches. This allowed SU hitters to look for one side of the plate on Thursday.Hansen was one of several Orange hitters who benefited from the pregame film session. She sat on the inside pitch after assistant coach Alisa Goler told her to look for it. If it wasn’t inside, Hansen wasn’t going to swing. She also backed off the plate an inch or two so she could get her hands out quicker than she normally would.This approach helped Syracuse dig itself out of the early hole and emerge on top after seven innings.“When we were down 4-1, we just had to come back right after,” Hansen said, “and we did.” Commentscenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Revenue growth in the quarter surpassed analyst estimates but the company’s net loss was significantly weighed down by stock-based compensation related to its March 29 offering.Lyft also announced it was partnering with Waymo, an Alphabet subsidiary working on self-driving cars, to bring a small fleet of autonomous vehicles to the Lyft platform in Phoenix. In the next few months, Lyft customers in Phoenix will have the option to hail a ride from 10 self-driving cars when they are available, Waymo said in a blog post Tuesday afternoon.Lyft indicated in a call held to discuss earnings that the Waymo partnership won’t be extended to Uber, despite Google’s early investment in the Lyft rival. “We’re in a position to build our own self-driving components,” CEO Logan Green said, explaining that the Waymo arrangement is only one “prong” in its self-driving plans. “We’re agnostic as to where this technology comes from.”The San Francisco-based ride-hailing company saw its stock initially rise once its earnings figures were announced, erasing the 2% decline that the stock posted during official trading hours. That brief enthusiasm may have been sparked by Lyft’s news that revenue in the first quarter of 2019 surged 95% to $776 million, above the $739 million that Wall Street had been forecasting.The news on the bottom line, meanwhile, wasn’t good. Lyft posted a GAAP net loss of $1.1 billion, or $48.53 a share. The bulk of Lyft’s expenses were related to stock-based compensation. The company’s non-GAAP net loss, which factors out stock-related pay, totaled $212 million, down slightly from $228 million in the same period a year ago. Analysts had been expecting Lyft to post a non-GAAP loss of $274 million.After its brief rise, Lyft’s stock soon began sinking, falling as low as $56.80 a share, or 4.3% below its official closing price Tuesday. That’s 21% below the $72 a share offering price of Lyft’s IPO. After popping up on its first day of trading, Lyft’s stock soon began drifting down and has yet to reach its offering price.In Lyft’s favor, the company benefited from increased demand in the first quarter: Active riders using its app rose 46% to 20.5 million, while revenue per active rider rose 34% to $37.86. But the company is still awash in red ink, presenting its executives with the quandary of how to move the company toward profitability without price increases that could send loyal Lyft riders to its chief rival, Uber.That the bulk of Lyft’s $1.1 billion net loss came from stock-based compensation may offer a balm to investors. But it may exacerbate a public-relations battle that Lyft and Uber are waging against drivers who have been agitating for better pay and benefits and who are planning a strike on Wednesday. Lyft’s earnings underscore the gap between contractor pay and employee compensation, which has grown wider in the wake of its IPO.For Lyft investors, there is also the question of how well the company can continue to hold its own against Uber, which will be raising its own pile of IPO proceeds when it completes its expected IPO this week. The two companies have engaged in price wars in the past—by some counts, they have lost a collective $4 billion to date to subsidize cheaper fares to win over riders.Lyft’s earnings report raised the question of how long it can engage in price wars. The company projected revenue would rise 60% in the current quarter to about $805 million. For the full year, Lyft sees revenue rising 52% to around $3.29 billion. While both forecasts are encouragingly above what analysts had been estimating, they point to a dramatic slowdown in growth rates from what Lyft saw in the first quarter.“The first quarter was a strong start to an important year, our first as a public company,” Green said. If as he expects, the economy keeps shifting from car ownership to hailing a ride via app, Lyft remains in a good position as a trailblazer. The problem with blazing trails, however, is that the landscape is nothing if not full of endless speed bumps.You May Like HealthFormer GE CEO Jeff Immelt: To Combat Costs, CEOs Should Run Health Care Like a BusinessHealthFor Edie Falco, an ‘Attitude of Gratitude’ After Surviving Breast CancerLeadershipGhosn Back, Tesla Drop, Boeing Report: CEO Daily for April 4, 2019AutosElon Musk’s Plan to Boost Tesla Sales Is Dealt a SetbackMPWJoe Biden, Netflix Pregnancy Lawsuit, Lesley McSpadden: Broadsheet April 4 Sponsored Content A Work Culture Built for All Generationslast_img read more
