GRENOBLE, France -- Doctors offered a grim assessment of Michael Schumachers head injuries Monday, providing no prognosis for the Formula One driving great after his skiing accident in the French Alps. Schumacher has been placed in a medically induced coma to relieve pressure on his brain, which suffered bruising and bleeding when the retired seven-time world champion fell and struck a rock Sunday while skiing during a family vacation. "We cannot predict the future for Michael Schumacher," Dr. Jean-Francois Payen, the doctor in charge of Grenoble University Hospitals intensive care unit, said at a news conference. "He is in a critical state in terms of cerebral resuscitation," said Payen, the chief anesthesiologist treating the 44-year-old German driver. "We are working hour by hour." Schumachers wife, Corinna, daughter Gina Maria and son Mick were at his bedside. "The family is not doing very well, obviously. They are shocked," his manager, Sabine Kehm, told reporters. Schumacher earned universal admiration for his uncommon driving talent, which led to a record 91 race wins. His single-minded dedication to victory sometimes meant he was denied the same affection during his career that he received Monday. Schumacher "gave the image of someone indestructible, powerful," Frances four-time F1 champion Alain Prost said on iTele TV channel. "Its a banal accident compared to what hes done in the past. Its just a dumb thing that ended badly." Schumacher and his 14-year-old son were skiing Sunday morning in the French Alpine resort of Meribel, where the family has a chalet. He fell and hit the right side of his head on a rock. By wearing a helmet, Schumacher had given himself a chance of survival, Payen said, though the protection was not enough to prevent serious injury. Gerard Saillant, a trauma surgeon who operated on Schumacher when he broke his leg in a 1999 race crash, was at the hospital as a visitor. He told reporters that Schumachers age and fitness should work in his favour. Schumacher, who turns 45 on Friday, retired from the track for the second time only last year, after a three-season comeback. Still, the hospitals neurology team, which is recognized as among the best in France, was cautious about Schumachers prospects. Doctors lowered his body temperature to between 34 and 35 degrees Celsius (93.2 to 95 degrees Fahrenheit) as part of the coma, which essentially rests the brain, slowing its metabolism to help reduce inflammation after an injury. The hospital, in a city that is the gateway to the French Alps, sees a large number of skiing accidents every year. Schumacher has been seriously hurt before. In addition to the broken leg in a crash at the 1999 British Grand Prix, he also suffered neck and spine injuries after a motorcycle accident in 2009 in Spain. An expert skier, Schumacher fell in a section of trails that slice down through a vast and, in parts, very steep snowfield. Although challenging, the snowfield is not extreme skiing. The runs are broad and neatly tended, and the ungroomed area in between -- where the resort said Schumacher was found -- is free of trees. "He was in the deep snow. But it was not an off-piste track," Kehm said, suggesting Schumacher had not taken undue risks. "They were skiing on pistes, but in the moment that it (the accident) happened, it was not on the piste." Meribel resort officials said Schumacher was conscious when first responders arrived, although agitated and in shock. After the fall, Payen said Monday, Schumacher was not in a "normal state of consciousness." He did not respond to questions, and his limbs appeared to move involuntarily, the doctor said. He was airlifted to a local hospital and then later brought to Grenoble. Doctors said that stopover was typical and did not affect his condition. The French prosecutor in Albertville has opened an investigation into the accident, according to the Mountain Gendarmerie in Bourg-Saint-Maurice. The goal is to determine the circumstances and cause of the accident. Formula One drivers and fans rushed to wish Schumacher a quick recovery. "Like millions of Germans, the chancellor and members of the government were extremely dismayed when they heard about Michael Schumachers serious skiing accident," German Chancellor Angela Merkels spokesman, Steffen Seibert, said in Berlin. Sebastian Vettel, the Formula One racer for whom Schumacher was a boyhood idol, told German news agency dpa: "I am shocked and hope that he will get better as soon as possible." Ferrari, which Schumacher raced for, also expressed its concern. Company President Luca di Montezemolo and race team leader Stefano Domenicali were in contact with the family, the company said in a statement. Former Ferrari teammate Felipe Massa, who himself recovered from life-threatening head injuries at the Hungarian Grand Prix in 2009, wrote on Instagram: "I am praying for you my brother!! I hope you have a quick recovery!! God bless you, Michael." British former F1 champion Jenson Button posted that "Michael more than anyone has the strength to pull through this." Some fans gathered outside the hospital Monday. Nuravil Raimbekov, a student from Kyrgyzstan who is studying in Grenoble, said Schumacher has been an inspiration to him. "Im worried, of course ... But I still hope, and I will pray for him," he said. During his career, Schumacher set an array of Formula One records. After initial success with the Benetton team, winning his first two championships in 1994 and 1995, Schumacher moved to Ferrari. There, he helped turn the storied Italian team into the sports dominant force. After initially retiring in 2006, he made a comeback in 2010 and raced for three years with Mercedes.

Andrew Heaney Angels Jersey . -- Brandon Jennings made the most of his first game with the Detroit Pistons on Sunday night.LOS ANGELES -- Led by a pair of precocious rookies, the Los Angeles Dodgers got themselves right back into the NL championship series. Hyun-Jin Ryu outpitched Adam Wainwright with seven innings of three-hit ball, and Yasiel Puig celebrated twice on his RBI triple that helped Los Angeles beat the St. Louis Cardinals 3-0 Monday night in Game 3. Adrian Gonzalezs RBI double ended a 1-for-17 drought for the Dodgers with runners in scoring position. An ailing Hanley Ramirez added a run-scoring hit as Los Angeles handed Wainwright his first post-season loss and trimmed its deficit to 2-1 in the best-of-seven series. "The playoffs are one-day momentum swings," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. "Right now I feel like weve kind of grabbed it." Puigs youthful exuberance, which energized the Dodgers as they surged from last place to first during a torrid midseason stretch, was on full display in the fourth inning. The 22-year-old Cuban defector was so excited when he connected that he raised his arms immediately and stood in the batters box to watch the flight of the ball toward right field, clearly thinking it was going out of the park. Once he realized it wasnt, Puig started charging. He roared into third base and clapped his hands before raising them again as the sellout crowd of 53,940 cheered. Puig had reason to exult, having struck out seven times in the series before getting his first hit. "He brings unbelievable energy every day," Ramirez said. "When we spoke to him, he told me, I got it today, and he did. Hes a great player." Game 4 is Tuesday at Dodger Stadium, with Ricky Nolasco scheduled to start against St. Louis right-hander Lance Lynn. But there was speculation the Dodgers might switch to Zack Greinke, especially after they passed over Nolasco with short notice in the previous round. "Everybodys trying to do the best they can to get to the World Series," Puig said through a translator. Los Angeles got Ramirez and centre fielder Andre Ethier back in the lineup after both proved in batting practice they were healthy enough to play. Ramirez wore a lightweight flak jacket to protect his broken left rib -- having been hit by a pitch from Joe Kelly in Game 1 -- while Ethier has been bothered by shin splints. "What can I say? It couldnt be better," Ramirez said. "Really happy we got the first win. Just come back tomorrow and even up the series." Ramirez singled his first time up off Wainwright and then helped the Dodgers extend their lead to 3-0 in the eighth. Ramirez hit a soft single off Seth Maness over the head of second baseman Kolten Wong to score Carl Crawford. The speedy Crawford, on second base after a one-out single, rounded third and never stopped running when the throw from the outfield went to second base. On a close play at the plate, Crawford barely beat the tag by catcher Yadier Molina. "We just had a lot of balls in the air tonight that hit the ground that normally dont," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. "Were a better club than this." During the rally, retired Dodgers manager Tom Lasorda, whose 1988 team won the franchises last World Series title, stood up and waved his white rally towel to raucous applause. "We just knew we had to scratch away and get a win," Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis said. "We needed a great starting pitching performance from Hyun-Jin, and we got that. You knew it was going to be tough sledding against a guy like Adam. Hes so good, especially on the big stage, so we were fortunate we scratched a couple of runs across." Wainwright entered 4-0 with a 2.03 EERA and four saves in 15 career post-season games, including six starts.dddddddddddd He pitched St. Louis past Pittsburgh in the division series, going the distance in a decisive Game 5 last Wednesday. The right-hander tossed seven strong innings this time, allowing two runs and six hits with five strikeouts and no walks. Ryu, however, was even better. "I hate to lose," Wainwright said. "I felt like tonight if I had got a couple of balls in there, we win the game. I think you just have to tip your hat and move on." The two pitchers were nearly even through the first three scoreless innings, with Wainwright giving up one hit. Ryu, who struggled in his first post-season start in the division series against Atlanta, retired 12 of his first 13 batters, yielding only a walk. "I just zoned in," Ryu said. Ryu was much improved after lasting just three innings as the first South Korean pitcher to start a playoff game last week against the Braves. He allowed four runs on six hits for a no-decision in a game the Dodgers won. The left-hander didnt permit a Cardinals runner past second base. David Freeses single to right leading off the fifth was their first hit of the game. Freese was replaced by a pinch-runner because of tightness in his right calf. He is day to day. Ryu struck out four and walked one. Mattingly came out to the mound accompanied by a translator with two outs in the seventh. Ryu responded by striking out Matt Adams to end the inning as Ellis pumped his right arm in the air. Fans waved South Korean flags in support of Ryu. "Its definitely a big motivation when you see your star players go out there hurt," Ryu said through a translator. "It really inspires you and motivates you to go out there and do the best you can." Kenley Jansen pitched a perfect ninth for a save. Major League Baseball noted on Twitter that the nine combined runs in the series are the fewest ever through three games of a league championship series, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. After the first two games in St. Louis were decided by one run, the Dodgers got to Wainwright in the fourth and took a 2-0 lead. Gonzalezs double down the right-field line scored Mark Ellis, who doubled leading off. Gonzalez smacked his hands together in a celebratory gesture resembling an explosion. "I saw Adrian doing some Mickey Mouse stuff at second," Wainwright said. Gonzalez replied: "I did what I always do. Mickey Mouse is only an hour away so, you know, it fits us." With two outs, Puig tripled off the wall in right to snap his 0-for-11 skid in the series. Cardinals centre fielder Jon Jay was involved in an apparent miscommunication when the ball hit by Mark Ellis dropped between him and right fielder Carlos Beltran. The Dodgers first hit, a single by Ramirez to shallow centre in the first, dropped between Jay and second baseman Matt Carpenter. "Its a ball Ive got to catch. Im the centre fielder. Its my ball. Ive got to take charge," Jay said. "It came back to haunt us, but thats part of baseball. Youre going to make mistakes sometimes." NOTES: The Dodgers snapped a stretch of 22 innings without a run in the fourth. They hadnt scored since the third inning of Game 1. ... Ethier was 0 for 4 with a strikeout. ... Dusty Baker, Reggie Smith, Ron Cey and Steve Garvey -- baseballs first 30-homer quartet in 1977 -- tossed ceremonial first pitches. That Dodgers team won the NL pennant before losing to the Yankees in six games in the World Series. ... Neither team has a home run through the first three games. ... Among the famous faces in attendance were Dustin Hoffman and Ice Cube.
