Surging Yankees ready to battle Blue Jays

Thanks to an expanded playoff field, the Toronto Blue Jays and New York Yankees are in the mix for one of the eight postseason places in the American League. They will be looking to strengthen and even improve their positions in the race beginning Tuesday night in the opener of a three-game series at Yankee Stadium. New York (26-21) holds down the seventh spot, which gets a best-of-three versus the second-best team in the AL, which presently is the 30-17 Tampa Bay Rays. The Yankees own a comfortable lead for one of the wild-card spots after outscoring the Baltimore Orioles 21-3 in a four-game sweep over the […]

Dodgers put Walker Buehler on IL, reinstate Joe Kelly

The Los Angeles Dodgers placed starting pitcher Walker Buehler on the injured list Thursday due to a lingering blister issue in his pitching hand and reinstated hard-throwing reliever Joe Kelly, who will start serving his five-game suspension for his confrontation with Houston Astros hitters in late July. Buehler was placed on the IL in late August because of the same blister, which resides on his right index finger, and he missed a couple of turns through the rotation. He pitched five scoreless innings in his return on Sept. 2, but gave up five runs (two earned) in the third inning versus the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday and later was […]

Serena rallies again, gets Azarenka in semifinals

Williams prevailed versus Tsvetana Pironkova on Wednesday, advancing to a semifinal versus Victoria Azarenka, a rival and a friend. A championship would tie Williams with Margaret Court at 24 major singles titles. Down a set and a break to the unseeded Tsvetana Pironkova in the quarterfinals of the United States Open, Serena Williams was in danger of succumbing to a story line even better than her own. Pironkova is not only unseeded. She is unranked and was playing in her first tour event in more than three years. Not even Williams, a 38-year-old master of the comeback, has taken it […]

Nadal returns at Italian Open after 7 months off

Rafael Nadal is preparing his return to tennis after a seven-month layoff at next week’s Italian Open. “The Foro Italico is always a special place for me and even more so this year as it will be my first tournament following a long period without playing,” Nadal, who has gained the Rome tournament a record nine times, said in a video message played at the event’s presentation on Tuesday. Because of concerns amid the coronavirus pandemic, Nadal preferred not to travel to New York for the ongoing U.S. Open. He last played in February, when he won a tournament in Acapulco, Mexico. The Sept. 14-21 […]

New York Yankees might miss the MLB playoffs they need to regroup soon

The fallout of the New York Yankees’ beating at the hands, bats and gloves of the Baltimore Orioles is one that appears to have started shifting the momentum in one direction, one in which the Bronx Bombers might be at risk of missing the MLB playoffs altogether. The Yankees accomplished 16 of their first 22 matches. Securing a spot in a 16-team expanded postseason was all but a given for a team that had hammered 40 home runs and slugged a robust .487 as a unit. New York was living up to its star billing, mowing down opponents by scoring an average of […]

Clayton Kershaw records 2500th career strikeouts

Clayton Kershaw reached two career strikeout milestones and held Arizona hitless into the sixth inning Thursday night, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers past the Diamondbacks 5-1 for their fifth consecutive victory. While racking up eight strikeouts over six scoreless innings, Kershaw (5-1) became the 39th pitcher in major league history with 2,500 strikeouts when he fanned Nick Ahmed in the second. The left-hander then caught and passed Christy Mathewson (2,502) for 38th place on baseball’s career list by getting Carson Kelly and Tim Locastro in the third. AJ Pollock had a pinch-hit homer and Mookie Betts added an RBI single […]

Heat win again, lead series 2-0 against Bucks

Giannis Antetokounmpo sat on the bench in disbelief as Jimmy Butler sank a pair of free throws with an empty lane and no time on the clock Wednesday night. Just moments earlier, the Milwaukee Bucks and Miami Heat were knotted at 114 after Khris Middleton sank all three free throws after being fouled on a 3-point attempt. It set up a wild finish, one that saw Antetokounmpo foul Butler after the ball had left his hands — a call confirmed by review — and permitted the Heat to walk off with a triumph in just the third NBA playoff game ever to end on game-winning, buzzer-beating free throws, according […]

Rockets vs. Thunder game 7

The story of the Thunder’s season has been their clutch play and it was on full display in Game 6. Paul scored 15 of his 28 points in the fourth quarter and made all the necessary plays to keep Oklahoma City’s campaign alive. Down six with 4:19 to go, Paul made back-to-back step-back 3s to tie the game. Given the amount of time left, if he misses just one of those shots it’s likely that Oklahoma City loses. Instead, a six-point deficit turned into another clutch victory, which is far from a surprise for a team that was 30-15 in […]

Cleveland Indians trade ace Mike Clevinger to San Diego Padres

The San Diego Padres, more a curiosity than a contender to start August, will exit the month with a stunningly revamped roster equipped to win the World Series now – and for many years to come. A feverish three-day run of acquisitions hit its apex Monday morning when the Padres acquired a legitimate No. 1 starter, Mike Clevinger, in a nine-player trade with the Cleveland Indians, the seventh and most significant player added to a club that’s won 10 of its last 13 matches and is a playoff lock in this pandemic-shortened season. The teams announced the trade Monday afternoon. […]

Possible Pirates trade chip Keone Kela placed on injured list

The Pirates announced Thursday that they’ve placed right-hander Keone Kela and infielder Colin Moran on the injured list. Kela heads to the 10-day IL with forearm tightness, while Moran is on the 7-day concussion list. Both moves are retroactive to Aug. 24. Righty Nick Mears and infielder Will Craig were recalled in a pair of corresponding moves. The IL placement for Kela significantly hampers the team’s ability to extract a meaningful return in a trade for the righty, who’d been the Pirates’ most obvious trade chip prior to Monday’s deadline. He can technically still be traded even while on the IL, but he won’t be entitled for activation […]
