  1. Mound

    A mound is a general term for an artificial heaped pile of earth, gravel, sand, rocks, or debris. The most common use is in reference to natural earthen formation such as hills and mountains, particularly if they appear artificial. The term may also be applied to any rounded area of topographically higher elevation on any surface. Artificial mounds have been created for a variety of reasons throughout history, including ceremonial, burial, and commemorative purposes.

Examples of mound in a Sentence

  1. Enos Cabell:

    He was one of the greatest pitchers we ever had and probably would have been in the Hall of Fame if his career was not cut short, on the mound, he was devastating and intimidating. Nobody wanted to face him. Guys on the other team would say that they were sick to avoid facing him. This is very sad news. He will be missed.

  2. Lance Lynn:

    If a position player is on the mound, there are no rules. Let The Twins get the damn game over with. And if you have a problem with whatever happened, then put a pitcher out there.

  3. Matthew Schulman:

    This means that the new smaller breast will be lifted to a more youthful position and the areolas will be made smaller and positioned higher on the breast mound.

  4. Justin Turner:

    Justin Turner said. They sure did. Seager homeredagain, Buehler pitched six scoreless innings and The Dodgers beat The Braves 3-1 on Saturday to send the NL Championship Series to a winner-take-all finale. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON Los Angeles avoided elimination for the second time in less than 24 hours, staying alive in Los Angeles pursuit of a third pennant in four years. Los Angeles hasnt won a championship since 1988. Im still sort of recovering from this one, but already thinking about Game 7, The Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. Thats what you live for. Justin Turner also homered for Los Angeles, and Kenley Jansen threw a six-pitch ninth for Kenley Jansen 18th career postseason save. The NL West and East champions play again Sunday night, with the potential for two rookie starters in a Game 7 for the first time in big league history. Roberts was keeping his options open for his starting pitcher while The Braves plan to go with rookie right-hander Ian Anderson, who has thrown 15 2/3 scoreless innings in Ian Anderson three postseason starts. Tony Gonsolin and three-time NL Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw are among the possibilities for Los Angeles. Shoot, well go out there and let er fly. A Game 7 is another baseball game, Atlanta manager Brian Snitker said. You have to treat it as such. The Braves were hoping to celebrate Snitkers 65th birthday Saturday with the franchises first World Series berth since 1999. But Max Fried took Max Fried first loss all year, working into the seventh inning after surrendering three runs during a rocky first. Buehler, using Stans Rodeo Ointment to deal with bothersome blisters, threw 65 of his 89 pitches for strikes. He allowed seven hits while striking out six without a walk. After Atlanta loaded the bases with three singles in a row to start the top of second the last hit by his Vanderbilt roommate Dansby Swanson the right-hander really brought the heat, with 10 consecutive fastballs to get out of the jam. Austin Riley struck out on a 98.7 mph pitch before Nick Markakis took a called third strike on 99.7 mph. Cristian Pache, the 21-year-old rookie who had an RBI in each of Cristian Pache first four NLCS starts, was retired on an inning-ending groundout. Cristian Pache mound presence is just unbelievable.

  5. Starter Mike Fiers:

    Nobody is surprised to see Hendriks helping out. Everything he does is with a passion and care known well for his thoughtful work off the field as much as his intensity on it. Hendriks reliability in the ninth inning has earned him a solid reputation, too. But you wont hear Hendriks say it. He plans to earn the job again. I dont want to be complacent, he said. Going out there and making sure I put everything on the line every night is a big thing for me. The Oakland closer received a nice raise when he signed a $ 5.3 million, one-year contract last month to avoid salary arbitration. The 31-year-old Hendriks is approaching this season as if he has everything to prove once again. He plans to take the mound each opportunity he gets exhibiting the confidence that he can and will repeat what he did last season. The right-hander, a former opener for the As, went 4-4 with a 1.80 ERA and 25 saves over a career-high 75 appearances spanning 85 innings. I dont want to dwell too much on last year because I dont want to rest on my laurels. I dont want to go out there and be like, Oh, I had my good year, I can ride that wave as long as I can, Hendriks said. I want to go out there and prove that it wasnt a fluke. I want to go out there and prove that no matter what happened last year I still need to win the job this year. I dont want to be gifted anything. I dont want to be given anything, I want to go out there and make sure that in spring training I prove that I want this role, I want this job and Im going to run away with it and prove to everybody why I want it. Hendriks became a key piece for As manager Bob Melvin late in games last season as The Oakland earned the ALs top wild card before losing to Tampa Bay. Considering his topsy-turvy history, Melvin is hardly surprised by Hendriks focus. He got designated for assignment on June 25, 2018 and has been through that almost a half-dozen times now before starting The Oakland 7-2 wild-card loss at Yankee Stadium just more than three months later. You would expect that from somebody thats been through the trials and tribulations that hes been over his career, so I think it is more about him not relaxing at all, Melvin said. He wants to be pushed, he wants to earn everything that he gets. Hes come a long way. He had as dominant a year really as anybody in baseball. He has learned from other times when he thought things were going smoothly, saying, I dont like feeling like Ive got it in the bag because as soon as I do somethings always going to pop up, Hendriks said. I dealt with certain things very poorly in the past and my mindset to get over that was expect the worst and hope for the best, he said. Expect the worst and if something good happens youre able to handle it, rather than expecting things and if they didnt come to fruition, falling out a rabbit hole and being kind of self-deprecating and all that. Starter Mike Fiers appreciates Hendriks determination and focus to again show why he is fit to be the ninth-inning option. Everyone has their ups and downs, and thats similar to how I am. I dont want to just sit back and be like Listen, Ive got the job.
