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. Madrigal got hurt when he tried to beat out a grounder in the seventh inning of Wednesday night’s 6-2 loss to Toronto. Chicago has […]

Detroit Tigers place RHP Michael Fulmer on 10-day IL with shoulder injury

The Detroit Tigers placed right-hander Michael Fulmer on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a right shoulder strain. The 28-year-old Fulmer hasn’t appeared in a big league game since May 30, and the IL move was made retroactive to Thursday. “We’re very cognizant of his injury history and also just the difficulty in the pandemic year to this year,” manager A.J. Hinch stated. “And so we almost have to react this way in order to protect him and in order to protect us and give him a little blow. I mean that’s really what we view this as.” The Tigers also activated right-hander José Ureña from […]

Gerrit Cole gives New York Yankees best starters’ stretch since 1932

Gerrit Cole shook off rare control problems to pitch four-hit ball over seven innings and give the Yankees their most dominant stretch of starting pitching in 89 years, leading New York over the Chicago White Sox 7-0 Saturday for a five-game winning streak. Cole (6-2) allowed four singles in seven innings, struck out seven and walked as many as three for the first time since Aug. 31. Rebounding from his worst outing this campaign, he lowered his ERA to 1.81 and ended the day with a 100.8 mph fastball that Andrew Vaughn took for a called third strike, Cole’s fastest pitch this season and the fourth fastest of […]

Kluber gets win, Yankees hit 3 HR in 5-1 win over Orioles

Corey Kluber has his best start in two years to gain his first victory for the Yankees, Kyle Higashioka homered again as he gains playing time from Gary Sánchez and New York beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-1 Tuesday night. Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton also homered — the Yankees are 9-0 when they go deep in the same game, including the playoffs. New York stopped a four-game skid at Camden Yards and at 10-13 moved into a tie with the Orioles for last in the AL East. Kluber (1-2), who signed an $11 million, one-year contract as a free agent, permitted one run and six hits with five […]

Gamine starts her 2021 campaign with easy win in Las Flores

In her first race since she was crowned the female sprint champion of 2020, Gamine looked like she was primed to pull off a repeat. Racing for the first time without Lasix, she was an easy, 5 1/4-length winner versus only three rivals in the $100,000 Las Flores Stakes (G3) on another sun-splashed spring day at Santa Anita. Carrying her regular rider John Velázquez as part of a career-high 124 pounds, Gamine (1-9) led from gate to wire and was never pressed. “She came back so good,” Velázquez said. “She felt as good as last year. She does everything so effortlessly. Everything she does […]

Victor Oladipo scored 25 points and the Houston Rockets shook off a terrible first quarter and held on late to defeat the Portland Trail Blazers 104-101 on Thursday night. The Rockets were down by 20 points in the first quarter before using a big second to take the lead and hold on down the stretch for their fourth consecutive victory.

Brees, Saints pull away late for 21-9 playoff victory over Bears

Drew Brees will get to celebrate his 42nd birthday by preparing for a playoff game that will also feature the one active NFL quarterback older than him. Brees completed 28 of 39 passes for 265 yards, connecting with Michael Thomas and Latavius Murray for touchdowns, and the New Orleans Saints overpowered the Chicago Bears 21-9 in an NFC wild-card game Sunday. The triumph for the Saints (13-4) and Brees, who turns 42 on Friday, sets up a divisional-round meeting next weekend in the Superdome with Tampa Bay and 43-year-old QB Tom Brady. The Saints won each regular season matchup with the NFC South rival by double digits. “The minute that […]

Authentic Retired, To Stand For $75,000 At Spendthrift

Authentic, the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Classic and G1 Kentucky Derby winner has been retired to B. Wayne Hughes’ Spendthrift Farm in Lexington, KY where he will stand in 2021 for a fee of $75,000 S&N. “Authentic is a once-in-a-lifetime kind of horse, and Mr. Hughes is very proud that we are able to share him with 5,300-plus MyRacehorse owners through what has been an incredible run. That alone made this decision different and very difficult. Ultimately, we just felt there wasn’t a lot more to accomplish for a Kentucky Derby and Breeders’ Cup Classic winner, so we have made the decision […]

Simona Halep gets past Amanda Anisimova in French Open rematch

Simona Halep had no trouble reversing the result of her loss to Amanda Anisimova at last year’s French Open. Halep secured the rematch 6-0, 6-1 in just 54 minutes on Friday to reach the fourth round. Anisimova made 32 unforced errors to Halep’s seven. The top-seeded Halep extended her winning streak to a career-best 17 matches as she seeks a third Grand Slam title. She won the trophy at Roland Garros in 2018. Anisimova upset Halep, 29, in straight sets in the quarterfinals in Paris in 2019. But this one went Halep’s way from the beginning thanks in part to the 19-year-old Anisimova’s […]

Toronto Blue Jays clinch playoff spot

The Toronto Blue Jays have clinched a spot in the postseason for the first time since 2016 with Thursday’s 4-1 victory over the Yankees at Sahlen Field in Buffalo, N.Y., and now the real fun begins. While Ryu and contributions from the young core perfectly fit the Blue Jays’ plan to return to the postseason, so many other parts to this story don’t. This will be the first and, hopefully, the last time that Toronto clinches with just its 30th victory of a shortened season, and no one ever expected this celebration to take place in Buffalo. It might all […]
