Keuchel and Arrieta your 2015 CY Young Award Winners

Written by Liz Charre, Staff Writer With the offseason starting, several trades, awards, and winners have already been announced. However, this past Wednesday was a significant day for baseball starters as the CY Young Awards were announced. CY Young awards are given to the best pitchers in the MLB that have shown dominance throughout the entire season. This year’s CY Young Award winners are Houston Astros’ Dallas Keuchel and Chicago Cubs’ Jake Arrieta. Both of these pitchers showed great leadership, dominance, and strength throughout the 2015 season and postseason. Dallas Keuchel is the third Astros pitcher in franchise history to win the Cy Young award. The last pitcher to win it for the team was Roger Clemens in 2004. As for the Chicago Cubs, Arrieta becomes the fifth pitcher in their organization to take home the Cy Young Award. Given their strong performances throughout the season, there is no doubt that it was a close call, especially for Jake Arrieta. Advertisements

The unbelievable Ronda Rousey loses by knockout

Written by Liz Charre, Staff Writer It’s always exciting to see Ronda Rousey inside the UFC ring because of how dominant she is in defeating her opponents. However, Saturday was a completely different story. As undefeated champs, both Holly Holms and Ronda Rousey made the match even more enjoyable to watch. Unfortunately for all you Ronda Rousey fans, it was one for the books. The ultimate champion was knocked out cold in the second round by Holly Holms. Everybody was on their feet in Melbourne as they all witnessed one UFC’s greatest female competitors knockout, not to mention her first ever. Also, there has been only one other fight that Rousey fought past the first round and that was back in December 2013 where it exceeded to round three.

Sunday was another tough loss as the Lakers faced the New York Knicks and Kobe Bryant’s farewell from Madison Square Gardens.
