Keldon Johnson had 24 points and 11 rebounds, and San Antonio kept alive its opportunities of becoming the first team in NBA history to make 23 consecutive playoff appearances with a 123-105 triumph over the Houston Rockets on Tuesday.

Yankees place Giancarlo Stanton on IL with hamstring strain

Giancarlo Stanton has returned to the injured list — and the Yankees don’t know when the injury-plagued slugger might be ready to return to the lineup. Stanton, who was placed on the 10-day injured list on Sunday with a left hamstring strain suffered in Saturday night’s game in Tampa, will receive an MRI on Monday in New York to determine the gravity of the injury. After being limited to 18 matches last season, the former MVP — who also suffered a calf strain during spring training and was sidelined in last year’s ALCS —will make his third trip to the injured […]

Atlanta Braves ace Mike Soroka done for season with torn Achilles

Atlanta Braves ace Mike Soroka is out for the season after tearing his right Achilles tendon Monday night versus the New York Mets. Soroka was hurt in the third inning after delivering a pitch to J.D. Davis, who grounded the ball toward first baseman Freddie Freeman. Soroka broke toward first to cover the bag, only to go down on his first step off the mound. The right-hander knew right away it was a devastating injury, one that ensures he won’t be back on the mound until 2021. “It’s a freak thing that happened,” manager Brian Snitker said, delivering the grim news after the Braves lost […]

Spurs edge Grizzlies and move into 9th place in West

DeMar DeRozan made two free throws with a second to play, giving the San Antonio Spurs a 108-106 triumph over the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday that moved them into ninth place in the Western Conference. The Spurs built an 11-point lead in the fourth quarter but needed a bunch of big plays down the stretch from DeRozan after the Grizzlies rallied. ”He’s a superstar in this league, one of the top players in this league,” the Grizzlies’ Ja Morant said. ”I feel like that’s a good job. I’m not surprised at all that he goes out and delivered for his team late in the game at all.” […]

Dodgers’ Joe Kelly suspended 8 games by MLB for incident with Astros

Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Joe Kelly was suspended for eight games by Major League Baseball on Wednesday, a day after throwing a fastball near the head of Houston’s Alex Bregman and mockingly taunting Astros star Carlos Correa. Benches cleared after Kelly’s movements during the sixth inning of Los Angeles’ 5-2 victory at Minute Maid Park. The game marked the first time the teams had met since it was revealed Houston stole signs en route to a 2017 World Series title that came at the Dodgers’ expense. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts was suspended one game and Astros manager Dusty Baker was fined an unrevealed amount. Baker said he was […]

New York Jets trade Jamal Adams to Seattle Seahawks

One of the Seahawks’ goals heading into 2020 was to improve a defense that didn’t live up to expectations last campaign, and on Saturday they made a big move to improve on that side of the ball, acquiring All-Pro and Pro-Bowl safety Jamal Adams in a trade with the New York Jets, pending physicals. To obtain one of the game’s top defensive players, the Seahawks are sending to the Jets first and third-round picks in next year’s draft, a first-rounder in 2022, and safety Bradley McDougald. The Jets are sending a 2022 fourth-round pick to Seattle in addition to Adams, […]
