NEW YORK -- Since Affirmed swept the last Triple Crown in 1978, Victor Espinoza is the only jockey to get two cracks at winning the elusive title again. Both times hes left empty. It was War Emblem in 2002. On Saturday, it was California Chromes turn to lose the Belmont after capturing the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness. "We reached almost to the top," Espinoza said. "Just one step away to get to the top." California Chrome finished in a dead heat for fourth, a disappointment to bettors who made him the 4-5 favourite. The Belmont was the third tough race in a short five-week span. His tank was empty. "As soon as he came out of the gate he wasnt the same," Espinoza said. Espinoza, 41, was once a bus driver in his native Mexico City. He has won riding titles at four Southern California tracks, winning over 3,000 races and earning $169 million in purses. With history on the line, the rider did his best to nurse California Chrome through the 1 1/2-mile race. Espinoza kept him on the rail in the early stages. On the final turn, with time running out, Espinoza shifted California Chrome outside to light a spark. "By five eighths pole (the top of the turn) he was empty," the jockey said. "I tried to move out to see if it would make a difference." Not with a tired horse. "I was just waiting for to have the same kick like he always had before," Espinoza said. "Today he was a bit flat down the lane. He ran back-to-back races at different tracks, and against those fresh horses." At least this time, California Chrome got to run his race. War Emblem was a different kind of horse, a confirmed front runner who had to have it his way to be effective. War Emblem stumbled at the start of the Belmont. Espinoza got him back into the race but playing catchup was not War Emblems game. He finished eighth. Jockeys rarely get a chance for Triple Crown redemption. Espinoza was handed one when California Chrome launched a six-race winning streak the moment they teamed up. It was a magical run that started in races restricted to horses bred in California. It picked up momentum in the Santa Anita Derby and crashed the national stage in the Derby and the Preakness. In every win, California Chrome proved responsive to every command by Espinoza. They won on the lead. They came from just off the pace. "The last time I had been here, I stumbled," Espinoza said. "Today I dont feel bad. California Chrome was just empty today."

Despite Barcelona showing the same vulnerability in defence, Messis best performance since returning from a lengthy injury layoff ensured that his side bounced back from a defeat by Valencia in the previous round.ANAHEIM, Calif. - After six months of steady play capped by a stellar September, the Los Angeles Angels earned the best record in baseball and their first playoff trip in five years.And then that trip lasted only four days.Once theyve recovered from an unceremonious AL Division Series sweep at the smoking-hot hands of the Kansas City Royals, the Angels must figure out what they can salvage from a 98-win regular season and a brutally swift post-season exit.Angels manager Mike Scioscia succinctly summed up his 15th season and the merciless nature of October: (The Angels) played hard all season, and we had a rough three games.And the Angels high-priced hitters had the worst games of all for a team that scored only six runs in 31 post-season innings.Mike Trout, the likely AL MVP, went 1 for 12 in his first post-season series. Albert Pujols, the $240 million slugger, was 2 for 12 with two RBIs.Josh Hamilton was booed repeatedly by Angels fans when he returned for the post-season after sitting out most of September with various upper-body injuries. The $125 million left fielder with three years left on his contract went a miserable 0 for 13 against the Royals.We won a lot of ballgames, but in the playoffs, the slate is wiped clean, Hamilton said. I dont think we played poorly.Until the last 10 days, the AL West champions were an uncommonly resilient ballclub. Even after losing starting pitchers Garrett Richards and Tyler Skaggs to season-ending injuries in August while playing in one of baseballs best divisions, the Angels hadnt lost more than four straight games all year a€” before they dropped the final three games of the regular season and their only three playoff games.You dont go in with any badge saying you won the most games, and youre certainly not going to get any points for that going into the playoffs, Scioscia said. We did a lot of things well during the series. We just didnt finish some games off. Those guys got some big hits, and they beat us. But you have to get your foot in the door.dddddddddddd We know how tough it is to get your foot in the door.Whether the Angels can keep that foot in the door is the question of the off-season.With their first playoff berth since 2009, the Angels finally accomplished something worthy of the enormous expectations brought on by their hefty payroll. That wont be much comfort while owner Arte Moreno watches two teams with a fraction of that financial investment playing for a World Series berth this weekend.Morenos urgency has a price beyond those big checks. Los Angeles has signed Pujols, Hamilton and Trout to contracts worth more than a combined $500 million, but the Angels also parted ways with several top prospects and first-round draft picks in the past few years while trying to win now.So the Angels are likely to return next season with Trout and much the same core of well-compensated players mostly in their 30s, supplemented by whats considered one of the majors thinnest farm systems. It worked well this season, but its hardly the intuitive way to win.Yet the Angels also have plenty of promising pieces. Two of the best young starters in baseball emerged from their system this season in Richards and 16-game winner Matt Shoemaker, while the Angels bullpen became a force after a few canny in-season moves by general manager Jerry Dipoto.And though he wasnt impressive last week, Trout is still the best player in baseball at just 23 years old. The franchise will be built around Trout for the foreseeable future, a blueprint that pretty much any team would love to have.Pujols, who still has seven years left on his $240 million contract, spent the entire summer angrily dismissing suggestions that anything except the post-season held any importance to Los Angeles. When the Angels flopped in the playoffs, Pujols already was looking ahead to next October.Weve got too many veteran guys here, he said. I think we can bounce back. Its not going to be the last post-season were going to be together as a group. ' ' '
