Two men who authorities initially thought might have been responsible for a string of robberies near USC on Monday night are no longer considered suspects in the crime.The Los Angeles Times published a story Wednesday morning reporting LAPD had arrested two men responsible for robbing three USC students Monday night, but USC’s Dept. of Public Safety said this is not true.DPS Capt. David Carlisle said he is unsure how that information was released.“There is no indication that the suspects they have are the same ones,” Carlisle said. “It’s strange how stuff circulates.”Carlisle said DPS hadn’t heard anything regarding the suspects in this case from the LAPD, and they are still seeking information.“I’d love to get a phone call,” Carlisle said. “There is a big discrepancy because if they had our property, those would be our guys. That hasn’t happened. I wish it would, but so far, no.”LAPD confirmed later Wednesday afternoon that the two men were not suspects in the USC crimes.The three robberies occurred on the 1100 block of 29th Street, the 2700 block of Hoover Boulevard and the 2700 block of Ellendale Place.
“I think a loud, energizing environment gets the best out of you,” Utley said, belying all the emotion of a baked potato. “It’s fun. We had a lot of games in Philadelphia in the playoffs. The crowd was into it. It makes you dig down deeper.”The crowd was into it, all right. The Mets’ official Twitter account posted an emoji depicting an unhappy face after Utley’s second home run. The first reply read simply, “KILL HIM.” The second reply, posted seconds later, read “slit his throat asap.”Ever since Utley’s controversial slide in the 2015 National League Division Series broke the leg of then-Mets shortstop Ruben Tejada, the veteran has been the focus of possible retaliation on the Mets’ part. Until Saturday, nothing happened. Utley batted once against the Mets in Game 5 of the Division Series — five days after his slide — and 20 more times this season without incident. But Hamari’s quick trigger Saturday suggested a warning was still in place more than seven months after the original incident. The warning wasn’t an official one, crew chief Tom Hallion told a pool reporter. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said there was no warning at all when the teams met in Los Angeles in April.“Chase was and has been tremendous,” Roberts said. “Not only what he does in the clubhouse, but under these circumstances for him to answer the bell and to perform and put us on his shoulders, not only speaks to him as a baseball player but his character. For me, there’s no one better.”Utley has been booed throughout the three-game series — during pregame introductions, when he bats, and whenever he touches the ball on defense. That won’t change today, a national telecast on ESPN2, and there’s no telling whether Syndergaard’s “purpose pitch” was the last one of the series.Roberts, who was appointed the Dodgers’ manager after last season, was surprised by Saturday’s turn of events. The two managers met with the umpire crew prior to the series to clear the air.“We all agreed that it was behind us,” Roberts said.The Dodgers did little wrong Saturday. Starting pitcher Kenta Maeda was struck on the top of his right hand with a line drive in the first inning. Diminished but not debilitated, Maeda retired 13 of 14 batters without allowing a run after the injury. He allowed only two hits in five shutout innings.After the game, Maeda’s hand was swollen but an x-ray revealed no broken bones. The pitcher said (through an interpreter) that he had a harder time throwing changeups, one of four pitches in his crafty arsenal.“What I didn’t want to do was come out of the game because of a freak accident like that,” Maeda said. “I was able to grit out five extra innings. I was able to contribute to a win today. I’m happy in that aspect.”Corey Seager, Howie Kendrick and Adrian Gonzalez also hit home runs for the Dodgers. Only a solo home run by pinch hitter Juan Lagares off J.P. Howell in the eighth inning prevented a shutout.The other fly in the blue ointment: Right fielder Trayce Thompson was removed with lower back soreness, a nagging injury that he aggravated on a swing in the fourth inning. Yasiel Puig took over in right field for Thompson, who insisted the injury is not serious.Don Mattingly chose not to play Utley in the Dodgers’ two playoff games Citi Field after the Game 2 controversy in Los Angeles. The severity of the threats hurled at Utley might have tipped the decision in that direction.Now, Roberts might have no choice but to leave Utley in the lineup. He’s 3 for 7 with nine RBIs in the first two games of the series.“I just think Chase enjoys playing,” Roberts said. “That’s the great thing about Chase, and as a professional: whether there’s 6,000 people or 46,000 people, he plays every single pitch. He’s unfazed and he gave us a huge lift.” NEW YORK >> Chase Utley was nowhere to be found.A 98-mph fastball from Noah Syndergaard had just whizzed behind his back to begin the third inning. Home plate umpire Adam Hamari ejected the New York Mets’ pitcher, then ejected an irate Terry Collins. As the Mets’ manager raged and 42,227 umpires at Citi Field voiced their displeasure, Utley calmly sat out the storm under shelter of the Dodgers’ dugout ceiling.In that moment it seemed as if knocking out Syndergaard would be Utley’s greatest contribution to the Dodgers’ effort Saturday. Maybe it was. Utley hit a solo home run in the sixth inning off Logan Verrett and a grand slam in the seventh inning off Hansel Robles. He finished 2 for 5 with five RBIs in the Dodgers’ 9-1 win, quieting every boo and every death threat on social media without saying a word. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error
Astros’ Justin Verlander makes insane MLB history with 200th strikeout this season Calhoun looked upset as he watched the fan being tended to before he returned to the batter’s box.

Gary Barta Statement on Hayden Fry: ====================The following is from the University of Iowa Athletic Department: Mary and I send our heartfelt condolences to his wife Shirley, their children and the entire Fry family. We hope that Hayden’s legacy of integrity and high character will provide his family comfort during this difficult time.” “Our thoughts and prayers are with Shirley and the entire Fry family as we mourn the loss of Hayden Fry; a great leader, an outstanding coach, and a man as genuine and loyal as they come. “There are two men who played large roles in my coaching career: One is my mentor, Joe Moore. The other is Hayden Fry. Iowa football reached new heights under Hayden Fry, and has continued that success under Kirk Ferentz, one of the many outstanding coaches who served as a member of his staff. Hayden’s legacy not only lives on through Iowa football, but also through the coaches and players who had the privilege to be associated with his teams. We are proud to know that our father’s life had a positive influence on so many people, the players, the coaches, and the fans who played for, worked with, and supported his long and successful coaching career. His legend will live forever with the people he touched and inspired, and the programs he led to greater heights. Fry Family on the passing of Hayden Fry: We cannot thank everyone enough for their love and support. Your thoughts and prayers are truly appreciated. Kirk FerentzStatement of condolences on the passing of Hayden Fry Back in 1981, I sent three job applications out: one went to Appalachian State – I never heard back from them; I sent one to Hawaii, had a phone interview, but they needed someone who knew the west coast; the third went to Hayden Fry at Iowa. Coach Fry hired me based on Coach Moore’s recommendation (and in spite of my lack of experience and local knowledge) and showed me how to build and maintain a winning program. RALPH D. RUSSOAP College Football WriterHayden Fry, the Texan who revived Iowa football and became a Hawkeye State institution over two decades as a Big Ten coach, has died. He was 90.Fry’s family announced through the University of Iowa that the former coach died Tuesday with his family at his side after a long battle with cancer. He had been living in the Dallas area with his wife, Shirley.“We are proud to know that our father’s life had a positive influence on so many people, the players, the coaches, and the fans who played for, worked with, and supported his long and successful coaching career,” the family said in a statement. “His legend will live forever with the people he touched and inspired, and the programs he led to greater heights.”The native of Eastland, Texas, had never been to Iowa before taking over the Hawkeyes in 1979, hired by then-athletic director Bump Elliott, the former Michigan star who died earlier this month.The Hawkeyes had slogged through 17 consecutive years without a winning season when Fry arrived. He changed everything. He had the uniforms redesigned to make them look more like the black and gold ones worn by the Pittsburgh Steelers, the NFL’s dominant team at the time. The familiar Tigerhawk logo was unveiled during Fry’s tenure. He had the visitor’s locker room painted pink, a tradition that still stands. Roaming the sidelines in his familiar dark sunglasses, Fry coached the Hawkeyes for 20 seasons, winning 238 games and three Big Ten championships.“Though Hayden was born in Texas and moved there more recently to be closer to our family, his love for the University of Iowa, his players and coaches, the people of Iowa, and the state of Iowa, is well known,” the family said. “Hayden often shared, ‘I’ll Always Be a Hawkeye.’”Fry started his coaching career at Odessa High School in the 1950s, not long after playing quarterback at Baylor. His first college head coaching job was at SMU, and then he did a six-year stint at North Texas, where he went 40-23-3.At Iowa, Fry not only produced winning teams, but also a long line of assistants who went on to successful head coaching careers.Bill Snyder, Barry Alavrez, Bob Stoops, Bret Bielema and current Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz were among the 13 Fry assistants who became college head coaches.“Hayden Fry is a college football icon and an Iowa legend,” Ferentz said. “His Hall of Fame career is well known, but personally, he will always be the man who took a chance on me at the start of my coaching career. I was proud to coach with him and honored to succeed him when he retired. He’s been a great mentor and a true friend. I am forever grateful to him.”Fry retired as Iowa’s winningest coach in 1998, a mark since surpassed by Ferentz. He was first diagnosed with prostate cancer before his final season at Iowa and he did his best to keep the news from his players and coaches while he received treatment.“My doctor at the hospital said, ‘Coach, you may be the luckiest guy in the world. You’re almost 70 years old and you’re in real good physical condition other than the cancer.’ He said I could live another five years. That was 16 years ago, and I’m still here,” Fry told the Cedar Rapids (Iowa) Gazette in 2015, when he was living in Nevada.Fry is survived by his wife, four sons, a daughter, a stepson and a stepdaughter. Memorial Services are pending and will be announced at a later date. Hayden represented all that is good in college athletics, and did it “his way”. Iowa athletics, and college football, has lost a pioneer. He was a dedicated family man and he will be missed.” With our family at his side, Hayden Fry, beloved husband, father, and grandfather, passed away following a lengthy battle with cancer. We are comforted in our faith and knowing that Hayden is no longer suffering and resides now in heaven with our Lord. Hayden passed on Dec. 17, at the age of 90. “Hayden Fry is a college football icon and an Iowa legend. His Hall of Fame career is well known, but personally, he will always be the man who took a chance on me at the start of my coaching career. I was proud to coach with him and honored to succeed him when he retired. He’s been a great mentor and a true friend. I am forever grateful to him. Though Hayden was born in Texas and moved there more recently to be closer to our family, his love for the University of Iowa, his players and coaches, the people of Iowa, and the state of Iowa, is well known. Hayden often shared, “I’ll Always Be a Hawkeye”. Additional thoughts from Kirk Ferentz on Hayden Fry: Iowa Athletics has lost an icon, a man that raised the bar for every Hawkeye program, and every member of our athletics department. Hayden was respected by everyone who knew him. His passing creates a void for all those who played for, coached with, and supported his successful tenure as our head football coach. His vision included hiring coaches who would be forward thinking and challenge each other. If you look across college football, you will see a part of his legacy in the coaches who he hired and mentored – coaches like Barry Alvarez, Bill Snyder, Dan McCarney, Bob, Mike and Mark Stoops and many more.Even before the Hawkeyes started winning on the field, Coach Fry was beloved by the fans and trusted by his players. He had a charisma and leadership style that created a championship and winning program that continues today. In 20 seasons at Iowa, Coach Fry showed us all that you can succeed at the highest level by playing by the rules.” Our family would like to pass along our heartfelt thanks to the caregivers who made Hayden’s comfort their priority.
