Manchester City survive Nkunku hat trick to overwhelm RB Leipzig in nine-goal thriller

Christopher Nkunku scored a hat trick for RB Leipzig but ended on the losing side in a nine-goal thriller as Manchester City, last season’s Champions League runners-up, made a positive start in Group A with a 6-3 victory at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday. Defender Nathan Ake put City ahead in the 16th minute with a header from a Jack Grealish corner and Pep Guardiola’s side doubled their lead 12 minutes later when a Kevin De Bruyne cross was headed into his own net by Leipzig defender Nordi Mukiele.

Gilbert sharp as Diamondbacks hurt Mariners again in 5-4 win

Tyler Gilbert gave up two hits in another sharp outing, Ketel Marte homered and the Arizona Diamondbacks defeated the Seattle Mariners 5-4 on Sunday.

Seattle is now three games behind Boston for the second wild-card spot with the Red Sox coming to town Monday for a three-game series. It was the first road series victory for the Diamondbacks since April 23-25 when they took two of three from Atlanta. Asked if he remembered the last road series win, David Peralta paused […]

Hall of Fame jockey John Velazquez sent Tell Your Daddy to the front and the Scat Daddy gelding did not relinquish the lead, posting a gate-to-wire victory by a half length in the Grade 2, $200,000 Bernard Baruch for 3-year-olds and up on Monday, closing day of the summer meet at Saratoga Race Course.

Sacramento Kings rout Boston Celtics to claim NBA summer league title

Louis King slammed home a two-handed dunk with a little more than two minutes left in the third quarter of the NBA summer league championship game, let out a massive shout and promptly flexed with authority. Fittingly, it was King who dominated for Sacramento and concluded with 21 points to help the Kings cruise to a 100-67 victory over the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night in front of a sparse, masked crowd that barely filled the Thomas & Mack Center’s bottom bowl, an uncommon scene for a title game that has packed the venue in recent years prior to the pandemic. It was Sacramento’s first summer league […]

Keuchel, Grandal lead White Sox past Blue Jays 5-2

Dallas Keuchel pitched six effective innings, Yasmani Grandal homered and the Chicago White Sox defeated the Toronto Blue Jays 5-2 on Thursday night. Led by Keuchel, Chicago closed out a 5-2 homestand and improved its AL Central lead to a season-high 4 1/2 games over idle Cleveland. Adam Engel also went deep, and reigning AL MVP José Abreu hit two RBI doubles. It was the first match for the White Sox since they placed second baseman Nick Madrigal on the injured list with a torn right hamstring.
