Its not just the bat, Servais said. Its the defense and its the ability to run out there every day and play. Its so valuable just to write that name in the lineup every day and know what you are going to get. I know he wanted to have a bounce back year and he really has. Cano had an 0-for-10 stretch in the previous series in Oakland.He promised Servais to bring some hits to Anaheim. pop over hereHe had three in the series opener. When you go for 0-for-4, 0-for-5, you have to figure out what you are doing wrong instead of going home and resting, Canosaid. Hehas beenone of the Mariners most consistent performers this season. He had kind of an off series in Oakland, Servais said. His timing was kind of off. The great players can make usually adjustments pretty quickly. When I saw him looking at the video yesterday, I was like, ok, well be just fine. Hes sharp enough to figure out what hes doing wrong, see where its at and quickly make an adjustment.

In round two, Brook caught Golovkin repeatedly with quick combinations and one particular right uppercut landed flush. The action delighted the crowd, but made no sense and now that we know Brook’s vision from the right eye was fading the grandstanding effort makes a little more sense. It was, in reality, his last stand, a move made painfully necessary by his impaired vision and not part of some carefully maintained strategy. Golovkin was accused of being sloppy by some purists, which seems harsh on Brook, and fails to capture the effort Golovkin had to put in. It is true that he was never hurt, never wobbled and never in trouble, but he had to fight in every round and in the second, for all the wrong reasons, he had to dig deeper than at any point in his professional career. Brook, meanwhile, displayed the guts that some fools believed he lacked. There is no doubt that Brook’s speed, heart and resistance shocked the Kazakh maestro, who talked after the fight of having to have a war and not a “boxing match” to win. Brook, by the way, took the type of punches that few of Golovkin’s previous 35 victims have managed to absorb. However, his bravery failed to keep him from the list and he was added to the 23 consecutive stoppage wins, including the 18th in a world title fight by Golovkin. “I’m still struggling to take it all in,” said Eddie Hearn, the promoter, at the end of the fight as he stood in the empty ringside pit surrounded by the junk left behind after a big night of boxing. “I truly believed he could do it, but with the eye, there was no way that it could have gone longer.
