Syndergaard sharp in brief return, Mets sweep Marlins in DH

Noah Syndergaard looked sharp in his brief but long-awaited return from Tommy John surgery, and the New York Mets defeated the Miami Marlins 2-1 in nine innings Tuesday night for a doubleheader sweep. Javier Báez dashed home from third base with the winning run in extra innings as Anthony Bass (3-9) fumbled James McCann’s slow bouncer between the mound and home plate. In the opener, Francisco Lindor homered and drove in three runs to help the Mets stop a five-game losing streak with a 5-2 triumph. Marcus Stroman went five innings for his 10th victory. Syndergaard started the nightcap for New York, firing his first major league pitch in two years and […]

Ben Simmons won’t report, done with Philadelphia 76ers

In a looming standoff that could have lasting implications for the NBA, Philadelphia 76ers All-Star forward Ben Simmons will not report for the opening of training camp next week and intends to never play another match for the franchise. Simmons, 25, wants a trade out of Philadelphia and told management that he has no plans to wear an NBA uniform again until he’s moved to a new team, sources said. This is setting up a showdown for a Sixers franchise with championship hopes that will be greatly diminished without Simmons on the floor — balancing the likely short-term losses with him sidelined against the […]

Houston Rockets, John Wall working to find trade deal

The Houston Rockets and John Wall have agreed to work together in an effort to find a trade destination for the veteran point guard, as the franchise is committed to moving forward with Kevin Porter Jr. and Jalen Green as its starting backcourt. The commitment to the 20-year-old Porter and 18-year-old Green leaves Wall, a five-time All-Star who was traded to Houston in the Russell Westbrook deal last year, without a starting role. Wall, 31, is not estimated to play for Houston, as team management and Wall mutually decided that a bench role for him wouldn’t be beneficial to either party, sources said.
