Joc Pederson hits 3 home runs, drives in 8 as San Francisco Giants take wild one over New York Mets

Joc Pederson turned a pair of pregame chats with home run king Barry Bonds into the best night of his career. Pederson homered three times and drove in a career-high eight runs, counting a tying single with two outs in the ninth inning, and the San Francisco Giants outslugged the New York Mets 13-12 on Tuesday in one of the wildest games imaginable. “Just getting knowledge from such a good hitter and the way he thinks about baseball and hitting, it just helped to connect some dots to free my mind up at the plate,” Pederson said. “I’m not ever going to be Barry Bonds; he’s […]

New York Yankees put slugger Giancarlo Stanton on 10-day injured list because of sore ankle

Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton is on the injured list for the fourth consecutive season. Stanton was placed on the 10-day IL on Wednesday as the ailing Yankees made a flurry of roster moves less than an hour before their 2-0 victory over Baltimore in the series finale. Manager Aaron Boone later clarified the injury to the star’s right lower leg was an inflamed ankle after the team had revealed it was a strained calf strain. “He is feeling pretty good,” Boone said before the game. “I think we hope that he said something early enough to where this doesn’t become long.” New York also put struggling reliever Jonathan […]

Houston starter Luis Garcia (3-3) allowed five hits and four runs, two of which were earned, but the other two came because of his throwing error in […]

No timetable on return of Dallas Mavericks’ Luka Doncic as MRI confirms left calf strain

An MRI on Monday confirmed that Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic suffered a left calf strain in the regular-season finale, the team revealed. No timetable has been set for Doncic’s recovery, but the Mavs have not ruled him out for Saturday afternoon’s Game 1 versus the Utah Jazz. “If he’s able to go out and put on his shoes, then he’s going to go,” coach Jason Kidd said after Tuesday’s practice, when Doncic received treatment. “If he can’t, we’re not going to put him in a situation to jeopardize it and make things worse.” Spencer Dinwiddie will start if Doncic is not available. Dinwiddie has averaged 15.8 […]

Norman Powell leads Clippers to win in return from injury, says LA can be ‘really dangerous’ in postseason

After scoring a game-high 24 points in his first outing alongside Paul George, Norman Powell thinks the LA Clippers can be a potential headache for adversaries if they get out of the play-in next week. Powell returned Wednesday after missing nearly two months because of a fractured bone in his left foot and hit his first six shots to help the Clippers build a 39-point lead before holding on for a 113-109 victory over the Phoenix Suns at Crypto.com Arena. His return came just three matches before the Clippers are set to play in next week’s play-in as the eighth-placed team in the West. “I think we can be […]

Kyrie Irving’s season-high 50 points lead Brooklyn Nets past Charlotte Hornets to snap skid

Kyrie Irving’s 50-point outburst during Tuesday night’s 132-121 victory over the Charlotte Hornets was so impressive that Kevin Durant spent the first few moments of his postgame news conference clapping for his teammate at the podium. Durant called Irving’s performance a “master class” and said younger players should watch it to learn how he handled his business on the floor. “Everything he does is pure,” Durant said after the game. “It looked so easy tonight. I look up, he had 10 points and it felt like he only took two shots in the first quarter. And I told Seth [Curry], I’m like, ‘Damn, I didn’t know he […]

Medina Spirit stripped of Kentucky Derby victory; trainer Baffert suspended 90 days

Medina Spirit was stripped of the triumph in last year’s Kentucky Derby and Mandaloun was declared the winner after a ruling by state racing stewards on Monday. The since-deceased Medina Spirit tested positive after the race last May for a steroid, betamethasone, that is legal in Kentucky but banned on race day. Medina Spirit finished half a length ahead of Mandaloun in the race, giving trainer Bob Baffert what was then his seventh Kentucky Derby title. Baffert was subsequently banned for two years by Churchill Downs following the positive test. Looking for the best online betting site and Live betting? […]

Robson Conceicao dominates Xavier Martinez, targets rematch against Oscar Valdez

When Robson Conceicao challenged Oscar Valdez for a 130-pound title in September, he wilted down the stretch in a controversial decision loss. In his first bout since the first pro defeat of his career, Conceicao fought far more aggressively and dominated en route to a unanimous-decision triumph over Xavier Martinez on Saturday in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The judges scored the bout 98-92, 99-91 and 100-90. With the impressive performance in the 10-round ESPN main event, Conceicao (17-1, 8 KOs), 33, set himself up for another title opportunity at 130 pounds. “I was able to be dominant this evening because I put […]
