Netflix to stream Chiefs-Steelers, Ravens-Texans on Christmas

For the second straight Christmas, the NFL will provide the gift of Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson. Netflix revealed Wednesday that it will stream two matches — the Kansas City Chiefs at the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Baltimore Ravens at the Houston Texans — on Dec. 25. The streaming network will broadcast at least one game on the holiday for each of the next three years in a new agreement with the NFL. The four teams involved this year will play rare Wednesday regular-season games. “There are no live annual events, sports or otherwise, that compare with the audiences NFL football attracts. We’re so excited that the NFL’s Christmas Day games […]

Astros’ Alvarez 3rd player with two 460-foot-plus HRs in game

Before the first of two games in Mexico City, Houston Astros manager Joe Espada stated he hoped that the trip could help them solve their offensive struggles. Apparently, it worked. Yordan Alvarez hit two home runs, Kyle Tucker added a solo shot and the Houston Astros defeated the Colorado Rockies 12-4 on Saturday night in the MLB World Tour: Mexico City Series to snap a five-game losing streak. Alvarez hit a two-run homer to center field and Tucker followed with a shot to left field and the Astros took a 4-2 lead in the third. Alvarez hit his seventh home run of the season in the ninth […]

Cubs’ Pete Crow-Armstrong gets 1st MLB hit with tiebreaking home run

Pete Crow-Armstrong hit a tiebreaking two-run homer for his first major league hit, and the Chicago Cubs swept the Houston Astros with a 3-1 victory on Thursday. Houston has lost a season-high five consecutive and eight of nine overall. At 7-19, it is off to its worst 26-game start since it was 6-20 in 1969. First-year manager Joe Espada was ejected by plate umpire Jansen Visconti in the top of the ninth. “I just did not agree with his strike zone all day,” Espada said after his first ejection as a big league manager. Crow-Armstrong was recalled from Triple-A Iowa when Cody Bellinger was placed on the 10-day […]

Sixers’ Tyrese Maxey edges Coby White as NBA’s most improved

Philadelphia 76ers guard Tyrese Maxey was named the NBA’s most improved player Tuesday night, defeating out Chicago Bulls guard Coby White and Houston Rockets center Alperen Sengun. Maxey, 23, had a breakthrough season with the Sixers, averaging career highs in points (25.9), rebounds (3.7), assists (6.2), steals (1.0) and 3-pointers made (212). He also became an All-Star for the first time as he transitioned into playing point guard full-time following James Harden being traded to the LA Clippers. “I have had to take different steps,” Maxey stated during an interview with TNT before the Minnesota Timberwolves played the Phoenix Suns in Game 2 of their first-round series Tuesday night, when he was presented with the award. “In […]

Braves’ Ozzie Albies fractures big toe after hit by pitch

The Atlanta Braves placed second baseman Ozzie Albies on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a fractured big toe on his right foot. In another move, the Braves finalized a minor league deal with former American League batting champion Yuli Gurriel, who was assigned to Triple-A Gwinnett. Albies, 27, was hit by a pitch in the second inning by Houston Astros rookie Spencer Arrighetti on Monday but continued playing in the 6-1 triumph. “It’s a freak injury, and there’s nothing I can do it,” Albies said. “Just makes sure I heal fast, and I’m ready to go.” Manager Brian Snitker didn’t give a timetable for Albies’ return, but he […]

Houston Astros’ Ronel Blanco no-hits Toronto Blue Jays

Ronel Blanco, making his first start of the season, baffled the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday night, pitching a no-hitter in the Houston Astros’ 10-0 victory. Blanco, coming off a modest 2-1 season in which he concluded with a 4.50 ERA, ignited an Astros club that was coming off a four-game sweep at the hands of the New York Yankees, giving Houston its first victory of the season and Major League Baseball its first no-hitter of the year. He threw 105 pitches, posting seven strikeouts along the way, with just two walks. When Vladimir Guerrero Jr. grounded out to end it, Blanco smiled broadly before raising his […]

Juan Soto delivers game-saving throw in New York Yankees debut

That Juan Soto’s first signature Yankee moment happened in his debut on Opening Day wasn’t far-fetched for a superstar with an uncanny ability to show out in the biggest moments. But for that moment to happen on a game-saving defensive play? That wasn’t a part of the script anyone, at least on the outside, envisioned for Soto, whose defense has been a knock on him, especially over the past two seasons. That’s what happened Thursday afternoon versus the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park. With one out and two runners on in the ninth inning and the Yankees nursing a one-run lead, Kyle Tucker smashed a single […]

Yankees’ DJ LeMahieu to start season on IL with bruised foot

New York Yankees leadoff hitter DJ LeMahieu will start the season on the injured list due to a bruised right foot, the latest injury setback for the former batting champion. The third baseman has been sidelined since fouling a ball off the foot on March 16. He is expected to miss at least the seven-game trip that starts Thursday at Houston. “It’s a little bit slow go on the recovery side,” Yankees general manager Brian Cashman stated Monday. “He banged it up pretty good.” An MRI and CT scan last week were both negative. Cashman stated there will be a follow-up MRI this […]

Adolis García, Rangers agree to 2-year deal, avoid arbitration

Adolis García and the Texas Rangers agreed Thursday to a two-year deal, the team revealed. The deal, according to multiple reports, is worth $14 million and avoids a salary arbitration hearing for the American League Championship Series MVP and the World Series champions. The deal through 2025 is pending a physical. García was the only Rangers player eligible for salary arbitration who didn’t reach a deal before last month’s deadline. An arbitration hearing had been arranged for Thursday before the agreement was reached. The two-time All-Star slugger, who set an MLB postseason record with 22 RBIs last fall, had requested $6.9 million and […]
