Germany beats Latvia, to face U.S. in FIBA World Cup semis

Germany will play the United States in the semifinals of the Basketball World Cup, a rematch of an exhibition match up from earlier this summer where the Americans needed a big rally to win. Franz Wagner scored 16 points as Germany — the last undefeated team left in the World Cup — held off Latvia 81-79 in a quarterfinal game Wednesday, pulling away in the fourth quarter of what had been a back-and-forth matchup for the first 30 minutes. Next up: The U.S. on Friday for a spot in Sunday’s gold-medal game. The U.S. defeated Germany 99-91 on Aug. 20 in […]

Red Sox win 4-1, 6-2 to sweep Yankees in doubleheader and series

It’s too bad baseball went away from the unbalanced schedules, because the Boston Red Sox could really use a bunch more games versus the New York Yankees. The Red Sox defeated their AL East archrivals 4-1 on Sunday night, completing a doubleheader and series sweep that brought them just two games behind their longtime nemeses in the division. Boston won the series opener 15-5, and then took Sunday’s day game 6-2 in a makeup of Saturday’s rainout. “We like playing them. They like playing against us,” Red Sox manager Alex Cora said. “It’s fun playing against them. Regardless of where we are in […]

McClanahan wins 10th with ‘another really strong performance’

Shane McClanahan is making a serious case to be the American League starter again in next month’s All-Star Game. McClanahan became the first 10-game winner in the major leagues and the Tampa Bay Rays defeated the Texas Rangers 7-3 on Sunday, taking two of three games in a matchup of the teams with the best records in baseball. McClanahan (10-1) allowed three runs, all in the third inning, and four hits over seven innings. The 26-year-old left-hander retired his final 15 batters. He won a career-best 12 games in 28 starts last season. “It’s one of those things where, it’s the farthest thing from my […]

Soler homers in 5th straight game, Marlins beat Angels 8-5 in 10 innings

Although the Miami Marlins survived Shohei Ohtani’s latest start and traded the lead with Los Angeles down the stretch, they were pretty much out of relief pitchers when they headed into the 10th inning. Thanks to two big hits and two bad defensive plays by the Angels, the Marlins had just enough pitching to keep up their recent road surge. Jorge Soler homered in his fifth successive game, and pinch-hitter Garrett Cooper had a tiebreaking double during the Marlins’ four-run 10th Saturday night in their 8-5 triumph over Ohtani and the Angels. Cooper hit a long fly to left-center off Jaime Barria (1-2), and Mickey Moniak couldn’t make the tough […]

Frazier, Henderson power 8-run 7th, Orioles win 9-6, stop Yanks’ 5-game win streak

Adam Frazier hit a three-run homer and pinch-hitter Gunnar Henderson had a go-ahead, two-run double in an eight-run seventh inning that rallied the Baltimore Orioles over the Yankees 9-6 on Wednesday night, stopping New York’s season-high winning streak at five matches. Gleyber Torres homered twice and drove in three runs, and Isiah Kiner-Falefa tripled and homered as the Yankees built a 5-1 lead against Tyler Wells. New York’s bullpen entered with a major league-best 2.80 ERA, but Baltimore sent 12 batters to the plate in the seventh versus Cortes and the bullpen, the Orioles’ highest-scoring inning this season. Cortes had permitted only Ryan Mountcastle’s fourth-inning homer before walking Anthony Santander leading […]

Nikola Jokic’s dominant triple-double leads Nuggets over Lakers

Nikola Jokic claimed he did not have a strategy in mind to combat Anthony Davis. But it did not take long in Tuesday night’s Game 1 for the Los Angeles Lakers to see Jokic’s blueprint. The Denver Nuggets’ superstar came out extremely aggressive, reintroducing himself to LeBron James and Davis on the Western Conference finals stage, but this time as a two-time MVP at the top of his game. Jokic compiled his third consecutive triple-double this postseason by the third quarter, and concluded with 34 points, 21 rebounds, 14 assists and two blocks to help the Nuggets take a 132-126 win at Ball Arena. “He makes it […]

Knicks push Heat to Game 6 behind Jalen Brunson’s 38-point gem

Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau beamed with pride as he described Jalen Brunson’s 38-point, nine-rebound, seven-assist performance in a must-win 112-103 victory over the Miami Heat in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals Wednesday night. As eye-popping as the numbers were for the guard who has quickly become one of Thibodeau’s favorite players in his first season with the Knicks, the stat that really made Thibodeau gush was the 48 in the minutes column. Not only did Brunson lead his team offensively, he played every second of the game to make sure the Knicks forced a Game 6 Friday night in Miami. “What can you say […]

Yankees’ Luis Severino eager to start minor league rehab

New York Yankees right-hander Luis Severino said it was “unnecessary” that the team decided to have him pitch in a controlled minor league intrasquad game on Friday and not in a game with Class A Tampa. Severino has been on the 15-day injured list since the begining of the regular season with a right lat strain. He had been originally scheduled to start Wednesday in a Florida State League game. It was first moved to Thursday before being canceled. “I think it was unnecessary not throw in low-A, but I do whatever they tell me to do,” Severino stated on Sunday before the […]

Kings beat Warriors 114-106 to take 2-0 series lead

As the referees went to the replay monitor to determine whether Draymond Green should be ejected for his hard stomp, the Sacramento Kings took that time to regroup and make sure they didn’t lose focus down the stretch. De’Aaron Fox and crew took over from there and delivered the Kings a 2-0 series lead that has the defending NBA champions reeling. Fox scored 24 points and made a backbreaking 3-pointer that led the playoff newcomer Kings to a 114-106 victory Monday night for their second consecutive victory over the Golden State Warriors. “I think that brought us together,” Fox said. “We huddled up and were like, […]

Jessica Pegula, Madison Keys cruise into 2nd round at Charleston

Top-seeded Jessica Pegula and past champion Madison Keys easily won second-round games at the Charleston Open on Wednesday. Pegula, the American ranked third in the world, needed less than 65 minutes to defeat Anna Blinkova of Russia 6-2, 6-0. Keys, an American who took this title in 2019, worked a few minutes more (69) to oust countrywoman Hailey Baptiste 6-1, 6-2 in the season’s opening clay-court tournament. Pegula stated the tournament at the Credit One Tennis Center feels familiar to her because she used to train at the facility when she grew up on Hilton Head Island, about two hours south of Charleston. “It was a fun […]
