Records in 2013 and released his debut album, Us Against Them—featuring his two singles “I’m Alright” and “What I Wouldn’t Give”—which immediately climbed to #1 on the iTunes charts. Born and raised in Weston, Miller has received praise from seemingly everywhere. Fox Weekly proclaimed him as the #1 Artist to Watch. A full-page article in The Miami Herald exclaimed “It’s Miller Time!” J-14 Magazine headlined Miller in their weekly Hot Music Alert section and YoungHollywood.com stated “South Floridian Teen Jake Miller (is) breaking through to the Music Mainstream.” Although Miller is currently enrolled at the University of Miami, he’s also touring nationwide. He keeps in constant touch with his fan base through social media—with more than 800,000 Facebook followers and about 500,000 Twitter followers. His steadily growing fan base, combined with his talent, is the perfect recipe for success and the reason why CBS Miami describes Miller as “The star on the rise.” His Internet success led him to open for Mac Miller in Fort Lauderdale in 2011. Miller is a natural performer, and following that performance, he opened with a live show for Snoop Dog in March 2011 in Pompano Beach. Miller never skipped a beat and a couple of months later (May 2011) he won the Samsung and T-Mobile National “Kick It with the Band” competition. He was then awarded $35,000 toward his music career, along with a music video with YouTube star Keenan Cahill. Miller immediately landed a November 2011 gig alongside Flo Rida, Sean Kingston and Asher Roth at the “Think Pink Rocks” concert in West Palm Beach. From there he sang at the Y-100 Jingle Ball that December with Cody Simpson and We the Kings. Miller closed out that New Year at the Orange Drive Miami Beach Festival, singing next to Jason Derulo, Cee Lo Green, Ne-Yo, Gym Class Heroes and Cobra Starship. Courageously, Miller sang in front of an audience estimated at more than 200,000 people in March 2012 on both the Planet Pit Stage and the Power 96 Stage, which took his career to a whole new level. He then partnered up and sang at the “Z-100 Pep Rally” with Austin Mahone and Sammy Adams later in the year, further propelling his ascent to stardom.It’s been hit after hit and new fan after new fan swooning for the lil fella ever since!For all these reasons and so many more, this YouTube heartthrob is the star to look out for.

Dodgers’ offense runs short in 5-4 loss to Giants

first_img“I just think (it was) a little too much aggressiveness and a couple of them were just kind of just mental mistakes.”The Dodgers had 40 baserunners while scoring 17 runs in the first two games of the season. They kept putting them on base Saturday afternoon as well. But Justin Turner drove in their first run of the afternoon with an RBI double in the first inning.That made Giants starter Logan Webb the ninth of 10 different Giants pitchers to be charged with at least one run in this series against the Dodgers. They left the bases loaded in the second when Mookie Betts flew out to end the inning, but it still felt like just a matter of time before the Dodgers’ offense woke up. But the bats weren’t the problem.Turner dropped another double into right field with one out in the third. But he was left helpless when Corey Seager’s knuckling line drive was caught by Giants second baseman Wilmer Flores, who had shifted into shallow right field against Seager. Turner was easily doubled off.In the fourth, things looked promising for the Dodgers when Chris Taylor and Joc Pederson led off with singles. But Taylor made a dash for third base when the throw from right field on Pederson’s single momentarily got loose with no one covering third. Webb got there in time to tag Taylor out. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error The fourth ended on another misadventure when Pederson was doubled off first on Kiké Hernandez’s flyout to center.In the fifth, it was Austin Barnes’ turn. He led off with a single but was doubled off to end the inning on a Betts’ line drive to shortstop Mauricio Dubon.By then, the Dodgers were down 5-1, thanks to a wayward start by Alex Wood in his re-debut with the team. Wood gave up a run in each of his three innings, grinding away to keep the damage down in a 31-pitch second inning.“I kind of got away from my general plan of how aggressive I am,” said Wood, who made only seven starts last season for the Cincinnati Reds due to a back injury. “We threw a little bit too much soft stuff early. I think they had some good at-bats and ended up drawing three walks in those first two or three innings.“It was just overall getting away from what I do best, in terms of pounding the zone and attacking early. I thought that was the difference. I felt much better in third inning. I kind of got back to doing what I typically like to do and it felt better in the third inning. But those first two innings, it just wasn’t me in terms of plan of attack.”Dennis Santana followed him and gave up two runs in the fourth, putting the Dodgers down even further. The Dodgers almost overcame their shortcomings – by taking advantage of some of the Giants’ many flaws.An eighth-inning rally against lefty reliever Tony Watson was sparked by a hit batter – Max Muncy for the second time in the game – and a two-base error by Donovan Solano at third base. It was the Giants’ seventh error in the first three games.Related Articles Corey Seager drove in two unearned runs with a two-out single. After a slow ground ball by Taylor crawled into right field against a defense shifted to the left, Giants reliever Tyler Rogers hit Joc Pederson with a pitch to load the bases and put the go-ahead runs on. But Hernandez grounded out to end the threat.The late life continued when Will Smith led off the bottom of the ninth with a home run, clipping a cardboard cutout beyond the wall in left-center and making it a one-run game. That was as close as they got, the squandered opportunities growing in importance as the game wound down. Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco center_img Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire LOS ANGELES — Maybe three weeks of Summer Camp wasn’t enough to fine-tune everything.The Dodgers had four runners thrown out on the bases – three were doubled off – in a three-inning, mid-game stretch, stymying their offense better than the Giants’ pitching staff had been able to do before a 5-4 Dodgers loss Saturday afternoon.Toss in four hit batters, a couple errors and a run-scoring wild pitch from the expanded pitching staffs, and the game would have fit comfortably at Camelback Ranch in mid-March.“We don’t enjoy any losses,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “But whether you win or lose, it’s sort of how you play the game. I think how we got there today, I’m not pleased with. You leave four outs on the field. That’s something that, for us, we pride ourselves on – intelligence and running the bases, knowing the scoreboard. But, when you get doubled off four times and give away outs, that’s just not helpful. Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start last_img read more
