Goldschmidt 2 HRs, scores walk-off run, Cards beat Tigers

Paul Goldschmidt homered twice and scored the game-ending run on Lars Nootbaar’s single in the 10th inning as the St. Louis Cardinals defeated the Detroit Tigers 3-2 on Wednesday. Goldschmidt was intentionally walked to open the 10th and executed a one-out double steal with automatic runner Tommy Edman.  Nolan Arenado was intentionally walked. After a fielder’s choice for the second out, Nootbaar lined a single to right field off Michael Fulmer (5-6) and St. Louis improved to 11-5 in extra innings.

The lone concern for the Giants: seven-time All-Star catcher Buster Posey was removed with right knee discomfort in the fifth, one inning after being visited behind the […]

Mike Trout says he is still aiming to come back to the Los Angeles Angels’ lineup this campaign despite a lengthy and frustrating recovery from a calf injury that has sidelined him since May 17. The three-time American League MVP said Saturday before a game in Cleveland that he hasn’t given any thought to shutting it down for the year. “I’m just trying to get back,” Trout said. “Obviously, we’re running out of time here, but my main focus is to get back on the field no matter when it is.” The center fielder stated he thought he’d already be back after […]

Shohei Ohtani followed up a remarkable performance with another good one, helping the Los Angeles Angels match a franchise record with an eight-run comeback in a 13-10 triumph over the Detroit Tigers on Thursday. “They never let up,” manager Joe Maddon said. “They never let down.” Max Stassi hit a go-ahead, two-run homer in the eighth inning and the Angels added a couple more runs, sealing a victory after trailing 10-2 to equal the deficit they overcame Aug. 29, 1986, also versus Detroit. Ohtani was 2 of 3 with two runs, two walks and an RBI, a day after hitting his 40th homer and pitching eight […]

Sacramento Kings rout Boston Celtics to claim NBA summer league title

Louis King slammed home a two-handed dunk with a little more than two minutes left in the third quarter of the NBA summer league championship game, let out a massive shout and promptly flexed with authority. Fittingly, it was King who dominated for Sacramento and concluded with 21 points to help the Kings cruise to a 100-67 victory over the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night in front of a sparse, masked crowd that barely filled the Thomas & Mack Center’s bottom bowl, an uncommon scene for a title game that has packed the venue in recent years prior to the pandemic. It was Sacramento’s first summer league […]
