Ball has not played in a game since Jan. 14.

New York Yankees’ Aaron Judge hits 58th, 59th homers, moves within two of American League record

Yankees star Aaron Judge turned in perhaps the best game of his historic season Sunday, hitting two home runs, a double and a single, driving in four runs and setting himself up to break the American League single-season home run record at home this week. Judge, as he is wont to do, downplayed his individual effort in the Yankees’ 12-8 victory over the Brewers, saying: “We’ve got some big games coming up. That’s really the only thing on my mind right now.” But around the Yankees’ clubhouse, all anyone could do was marvel at the 30-year-old outfielder, whose 59 home runs are two shy of Roger […]

It was Chicago’s first series sweep of the season and first three-game sweep in Philadelphia since July 25-27, 2000. “It feels nice to put some wins together,” Cubs manager David Ross said. “Pretty good all-around team win. Sweeps are hard.” Garrett Stubbs homered for the Phillies, who failed to gain ground in the NL wild-card race […]

Chicago White Sox reinstate Tim Anderson from 10-day injured list, insert him back at top of lineup

Shortstop Tim Anderson was reinstated him from the 10-day injured list Monday prior to the Chicago White Sox opening a home series versus the Toronto Blue Jays. To make room on the roster for Anderson, Chicago placed third baseman Yoan Moncada on the 10-day injured list, retroactive to June 18, with a strained right hamstring. Anderson, who had been on a rehabilitation assignment with Class AAA Charlotte while working his way back from a groin injury, was inserted into his customary leadoff spot for the opener versus the Blue Jays. The 2019 AL batting champ left a victory over the Chicago Cubs late last month, going down in the […]

You just get angry and […]

Lopez scores 28, Bucks beat Bulls 127-106 to clinch Central

Brook Lopez scored a season-high 28 points and the Milwaukee Bucks overcame a rather quiet performance from Giannis Antetokounmpo to clinch their fourth straight Central Division championship with a 127-106 triumph over the Chicago Bulls on Tuesday night. The defending NBA champion Bucks haven’t been on a run like this since Don Nelson’s teams won seven successive division titles in the 1980s. They took control early and came away with an easy win even though DeMar DeRozan scored 40 for Chicago. Antetokounmpo, trying to overtake LeBron James and Joel Embiid in a tight race for his first scoring title, concluded with 18 points, nine rebounds and seven assists. But the two-time MVP started […]
