The home at 39a Guthrie St, Paddington is one of 141 being auctioned in Brisbane this week.THE Brisbane auction market has started the year firing on all cylinders with a solid number of homes going under the hammer and strong clearance rates.This week, 141 homes are expected to be auctioned on the back of stellar results last week when the river city recorded a clearance rate of 62.1 per cent on 176 auctions. CoreLogic auction expert Kevin Brogan said Brisbane was experiencing a “fairly steady” auction market. “This week’s volume is down on last week but … 141 is a reasonable activity,” he said. “And looking back over 2016, the clearance rate achieved in Brisbane last week was as strong as we’ve seen for a year.“The higher clearance rate may signal for people to come into the auction market.”One of the 141 properties going under the hammer this weekend is a Brighton property with two houses on it. It is expected to be auctioned at 9am on Saturday, March 4.

“Sometimes we forget there’s another major league team across the way that’s doing everything they can to get us out,” Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis said. “They’ve thrown the ball extremely well this series. I think we’ve all been kind of impressed with the power arms they have coming out of their bullpen. They have some guys late who can really throw the ball and put you on the defensive with their velocity and their power. It’s something we’ve got to combat, come back tomorrow and be ready to salvage the series.”The Marlins will send right-hander Jose Fernandez to the mound Thursday against Kenta Maeda in search of a rare four-game sweep. Fernandez, the 2013 National League Rookie of the Year, is catching the Dodgers at a good time: The same offense that scored 15 runs on Opening Day, and 12 runs in their final game of a week-long road trip Sunday, has officially disappeared upon returning home.Monday, they managed to scratch across two earned runs against Wei-Yin Chen, who began the week with an earned-run average of 4.91. Tuesday, they scored two more against Tom Koehler (4.80 ERA). The Dodgers’ opponent Wednesday was left-hander Justin Nicolino, who hadn’t thrown a pitch above Triple-A since last September. Dave Roberts stacked his lineup with six right-handers, putting lefty Chase Utley and switch-hitter Yasmani Grandal on the bench to start the game.The lineup mustered only two singles and two walks in 7 1/3 innings against Nicolino and his low-90s fastball. The Dodgers’ 6 through 9 hitters were 0 for 11 with one walk. Don Mattingly was ejected from Dodger Stadium in the eighth inning Wednesday. In that moment, for the first time all week, the Miami Marlins’ manager got the unanimous standing ovation he so rarely heard in his final days in a Dodgers uniform.There was a tinge of sadness to the moment. When Mattingly sprinted out to join pitcher David Phelps’ protest of a couple borderline balls, it was the closest the Dodgers came to scoring a run.Joc Pederson’s one-out walk loaded the bases for the Dodgers’ number-2 and number-3 hitters, Yasiel Puig and Adrian Gonzalez. And because Phelps was ejected, the Marlins were forced to use their fifth pitcher of the inning, right-hander Jose Urena.Urena threw his warmup tosses, then struck out Puig and retired Gonzalez on a soft fly ball. The Dodgers lost 2-0, their first shutout of the season coming before an announced crowd of 38,909. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “Very similar to Chen in game one, very aggressive attacking the strike zone,” Ellis said of Nicolino. “He had us in pretty bad counts all night with his ability to keep attacking and attacking. He deserves a lot of credit.”Nicolino, 24, made four starts at Triple-A this year. In 12 major league games last year he went 5-4 with a 4.01 earned-run average, including a June 26 start at Dodger Stadium in which he allowed five runs in four innings. On paper, this was a pitcher the Dodgers should have pounded into submission. Maybe, as the manager suggested, they were pounding themselves a tad too much.“Some guys look at their average and want to get hits,” Roberts said. “When you feel like you need to get a hit it gets tougher. Guys are coming out of the strike zone a little bit more than they used to.”The eighth-inning rally, punctuated by Mattingly’s ejection, stood alone as the Dodgers’ one chance to score.After Nicolino was removed with one out, Utley and Grandal drew back-to-back walks against Bryan Morris and Cody Ege, respectively. Another pinch hitter, Pederson, walked in his only plate appearance. While home plate umpire Todd Tichenor ejected Phelps and Mattingly, the fans roared and Puig waited for his turn as Urena warmed up in short order.Then Urena closed the door on the inning, and stuck around to pitch a scoreless ninth for his first save of the season.Left-hander Scott Kazmir (1-2) allowed two runs on four singles in a shaky first inning, then settled in to give the Dodgers six quality innings. He wasn’t allowed to swing a bat, but that was the only remnant of a left thumb/wrist injury that curtailed his last start.Kazmir didn’t throw a bullpen after that game but he seemed no worse for the wear. The Marlins’ four first-inning singles weren’t particularly hard-hit. Kazmir’s final line — 6 innings pitched, two earned runs — was his best since his first start of the season.“I really found a good rhythm,” Kazmir said. “Toward the end (of the first inning) I started to feel comfortable. I just took that into the rest of the game.”That the Dodgers couldn’t reward one of their struggling starters only made the final score more frustrating.“We just want to go out there and win,” Kazmir said. “I think we’re capable of doing that every night and it’s always disappointing when we don’t pull out a win.”

He crossed the plane of the goal line on the play where they said he was inches short. I am 100% sure the ball crossed the plane. Could have changed the whole ball game but then again that kid still would have ripped a 74 yard TD.

But once Wellingtonâ€™s Trevor Nance connected with Colin Reichenberger for a 15 yard completion with 8:48 in the second quarter, the Crusaders would go on to score 34 points. Stranger things have happened. After all Kansas City is one game up in the American League Championship Series.Â Wellington would cap an 80 yard drive when fullback Jaden Hines would scramble 27 yards for a touchdown to put the Crusaders on the board.Collegiate responded with a Austin Waddell to Jack Copher 26-yard touchdown pass. Back came the Crusaders, when another Hines run followed by a Reichenberger batting the ball in the air and making his own catch put Wellington into enemy territory. Three plays later Nance hit Connor Phelps on a 30-yard touchdown throw – narrowing the margin to 24-13 at the half.On Wellingtonâ€™s second half possession, it appeared as if the Crusaders were going to march down the field to score. But Collegiateâ€™s Jack Larsen made a sensational one-handed interception and return it to the Wellington 40.Wellington would eventually stop Collegiate with a Phelps interception in the end zone. Then Lane Beard would scramble for a long run into enemy territory. A few plays later he would do it again on a 21 yard run and Wellington was within three points 24-21.However, Collegiate struck back and scored on a Jaques Williams 13-yard touchdown.Still Wellington wasnâ€™t through. A Reichenberger 35-yard pass reception would take the Dukes into enemy territory and four plays later Beard was just inches short from going in.But then Wellington commits a horrendous 5-yard false start penalty and two incompletions later, Wellington had nothing to show for the impressive first part of the drive.Then Williams got loose three plays later and scrambled 74 yards for the score. This game was all but over, 38-21 with 5:31 to play.But not so fast. Wellington engineered a 66 yard drive in slightly more than two minutes that was capped by a Beard 3-yard touchdown.In a strange sequence, Collegiate recovers an onside kick but is penalized. The second kick, Wellington recovers. Then Reichenberger makes a pass reception to the 4. Nance then takes it into from the 2 and with 1:36 to play, the Crusaders were back within four, 38-34.On the next onside kick, Collegiate recovers and would run out the clock for the win.â€¢â€¢â€¢â€¢â€¢Adam Condit left the field after the game on a gator with what appears to be a high ankle sprain. Wellington head coach Tyler Ryan did not supply any other details.
