Novak Djokovic dominates Kei Nishikori, reaches medal rounds in Tokyo

Kei Nishikori thought he was playing well. Then he played Novak Djokovic. The top-ranked Serb never gave Nishikori an opportunity in a 6-2, 6-0 rout of the home favorite from Japan to reach the semifinals of the tennis tournament at the Tokyo Olympics on Thursday. “He was defending amazing today — everything deep — and I was trying to stay with him but I couldn’t,” Nishikori said. “I thought I was playing OK but my serving was bad today and he was attacking every [time].” The dominant performance advanced Djokovic into the medal rounds and — more importantly — moved him one […]

The New York Yankees are concluding a deal to acquire outfielder Joey Gallo from the Texas Rangers, sources told ESPN’s Jeff Passan on Wednesday night. The deal is pending a medical review. The Rangers will get right-handers Glenn Otto and Randy Vasquez, second baseman Ezequiel Duran, shortstop Josh Smith, second baseman/outfielder Trevor Hauver and outfielder Everson Pereira from New York, sources told Passan. Gallo was a late scratch from the Rangers’ lineup ahead of Wednesday night’s game versus the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks, with speculation that a trade was in the works.

Jiménez hits 3-run HR, rallies White Sox past Royals 5-3

Eloy Jiménez logged his first big hit of the season, launching a go-ahead, three-run homer in the eighth inning that sent the Chicago White Sox over the Kansas City Royals 5-3 Tuesday night. The 24-year-old slugger, who was the 2019 AL Rookie of the Year and then kept up his power surge during the pandemic-shortened season, tore a pectoral muscle in spring training. He hadn’t played in the majors until going 0 for 4 Monday night. But Jiménez quickly made up for lost time in his second match. After hitting a single in his first at-bat, he came up in the eighth after a […]

With NYRA Ban Overturned, Baffert Plans To Enter Gamine At Saratoga

After a judge overturned the New York Racing Association’s ban of Bob Baffert on July 14, the trainer told the Daily Racing Form he plans to enter reigning champion sprint mare Gamine in the Grade 1 Ballerina Stakes at Saratoga on Aug. 28. NYRA notified Baffert ahead of the Belmont Stakes that it was suspending his ability to enter horses in races or have stall space at its racetracks due to his recent history of medication violations, the conflicting statements he provided to media around the Medina Spirit scandal, and Churchill Downs’ suspension of the trainer.

Kim earns 5th straight win on birthday, Cards beat Cubs 3-2

Kwang Hyun-Kim earned his fifth consecutive win on his 34th birthday and the St. Louis Cardinals defeated the Chicago Cubs 3-2 Thursday night. Nolan Arenado and Dylan Carlson homered as the Cardinals improved to a game over .500 at 49-48. It’s the Cardinals first winning record since being 36-35 after winning the first game of a doubleheader at Atlanta on June 20. “I don’t think that the goal here is just to finish over .500.” Arenado said. “We’re looking at way more important things, and we’ve just got to continue to compete. We should finish over .500, but we want to get into the playoffs. “This series, […]

Freeman, Toussaint spark Braves to 2-1 win over Padres

Freddie Freeman homered off Yu Darvish in the sixth inning, Touki Toussaint permitted one run and three hits in his season debut, and the Atlanta Braves beat the San Diego Padres 2-1 on Tuesday night. Toussaint, who missed the first 3½ months rehabbing a right shoulder strain, retired the first seven batters he faced before walking Victor Caratini in the third. He didn’t allow a hit until Manny Machado doubled with one out in the fourth. The Padres tied it 1-all in the fourth when Jake Cronenworth was hit by a pitch, advanced to third on Machado’s double and scored on Tommy Pham’s sacrifice fly. Wil Myers flied out on a broken-bat flare as Toussaint escaped a […]

Phoenix Suns drop third straight, look to ‘regroup’ trailing 3-2 in NBA Finals

If there ever was a time for Monty Williams to come up with one of the adages he has been heralded for, it was after his Phoenix Suns’ 123-119 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Saturday. The loss was Phoenix’s third in a row on the Finals stage after it had dropped three in a row just once all season, back in January. And it came in excruciating fashion: The Suns squandered an early 16-point cushion and fell down 14 in the fourth, only to have their opportunity to take the lead back in the final minute go […]
