The Western Bulldogs have ended Hawthorns quest for four straight AFL premierships with a 23 -point semifinal triumph.The Bulldogs mauled the Hawks in the second half on Friday night at the MCG, kicking 10 goals to five and winning 16.11 (107) to 12.12 (84).Hawthorn looked weary as they went out of the finals in straight sets, or two consecutive losses, for the first time since 1977.The crowd of 87,823 was the third biggest in Bulldogs history.While the Hawks have been stopped from becoming the first team since the 1920s Collingwood machine to win four flags in a row, the Bulldogs are trying to add to their only premiership in 1954.They will go to Sydney to play the Giants in a twilight preliminary final on Saturday week at Spotless Stadium, with the winner through to the grand final.Bulldogs onballer Marcus Bontempelli was best afield, while Jake Stringer and Liam Picken kicked three goals apiece.A minute into the last quarter, Hawks captain Luke Hodge was shaping to handball when Bontempelli swooped and stole possession.That set up Tory Dickson for the goal that put the Bulldogs 32 points up and confirmed there would be no Hawks comeback.It was a moment of potent symbolism - one of the Bulldogs young stars stealing the ball from the leader of Hawthorns run of three premierships in a row, and four since 2008.Last weeks win over West Coast was hailed as one of the Bulldogs best finals performances. This was even better.The Bulldogs wrested control from the Hawks with six goals to one in the third term, hitting the front for the first time since early in the match.But for much of the first half, it looked like the Bulldogs would pay for missed opportunities.They started the game perfectly, matching the Hawks intensity and keeping the ball in their half of the ground, only to open their scoring with a wasteful three behinds.A superb smother from Hawks defender James Frawley stopped a certain Bulldogs goal and the ball rapidly went to the other end of the ground.Jack Gunston kicked Hawthorns second goal in a classic 12-point turnaround.Hawthorn led by 11 points at quarter-time and extended that to 23 midway through the second as the Bulldogs kept butchering chances.Then Luke Breust, who never fluffs set shots, did so in the second term for Hawthorn.The Bulldogs went on a three-goal run and Dicksons shot after the halftime siren could have given them the lead.He missed, a melee ensued and the Hawks led by a point at the main break.Liam Shiels and Shaun Burgoyne were best for Hawthorn on a night when, for once, too many of their stars failed to have an influence. http://www.bearsrookiestore.com/Bears-Sam-Acho-Jersey/ .

BOSTON -- The way Andrew Benintendi saw it, his job in the fifth inning Tuesday night was to drive home the go-ahead run for the Boston Red Sox. It hardly mattered to him how he did it.To anyone suggesting Benintendi, 22, might be disappointed that a video review turned what would have been his first major league home run in his first game at Fenway Park -- and with his proud parents in the stands --?into an RBI double, he smiled politely and said he still accomplished his goal.It was fine. I was happy with whatever outcome [the umpires] saw, Benintendi, a rookie left fielder, said after the Red Sox won 5-3 in the opener of a three-game series against the New York Yankees. My job was to get that run in from third base, and I did. So it really was irrelevant at that point.Called up last week from Double-A Portland only 14 months after being drafted in the first round out of the University of Arkansas, Benintendi finished 3-for-3 with two runs and one RBI, continuing a stellar first week in the big leagues. The Red Sox initially planned to start him only against right-handed pitchers, but with eight hits in his first 16 at-bats, he has played his way into an everyday role, according to manager John Farrell.He plays at a very even pulse, Farrell said. Good passes at the plate. Doesnt seem to be disrupted by velocity or secondary pitches. Hes impressed.Said pitcher Rick Porcello, who allowed two runs in eight innings and improved to 11-0 at home: Its crazy. Seeing him get drafted a year ago, and hes up here in the big leagues getting three hits in multiple games, its pretty fun. But you can see why, with his swing and his speed, the things that hes able to do at the plate, why hes such a highly touted player.dddddddddddd Happy hes up here.After singling in his first at-bat and scoring the Red Soxs first run in the third inning, Benintendi hit a 98 mph fastball from Yankees starter Luis Severino off the yellow line that separates the left-field wall from the wall behind the center-field stands, scoring Sandy Leon easily from third. Benintendi stopped at second base to await a call from the umpires, who conferred before signaling a home run.But Yankees manager Joe Girardi asked for a review. Replays appeared to show the ball hitting the yellow line, which would indicate a home run. But replay officials reversed the call and sent Benintendi back to second base. According to Farrell, Fenway Park ground rules state that a ball must hit to the right of the yellow line to be counted as a home run.When the ricochet of the carom hit the top of the wall and not the triangle of any part of the wall behind where it would be out of bounds, that, as Im seeing, is the ruling, Farrell said. I asked but was denied any kind of ability to go out and ask what the ruling was.It mattered little to Benintendi, who scored two batters later on Dustin Pedroias double. Benintendi reached on an infield single in the seventh inning to complete a near-perfect Fenway debut.Its something Ive dreamt of, not just since being drafted but since I was a little kid, Benintendi said. To walk into the stadium and take BP and things like that, especially here at Fenway, its a dream come true.
