Warriors left stunned after blowing lead in final seconds in Utah

The Golden State Warriors held a four-point lead over the Utah Jazz with 13.3 seconds let in the game. They had clawed their way back after trailing by 12 in the third quarter and did so without Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and Andrew Wiggins. But what happened over those next 13 seconds left the Warriors scratching their heads following a 124-123 loss at Vivint Arena. “In my experience, there’s one game like this every year where you leave the building saying, ‘What just happened?'” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “You make mistakes down the stretch and you leave the arena just shaking your head, thinking, ‘How did we just let […]

Ravens say QB Lamar Jackson ‘week-to-week’ with knee inju

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson is “week-to-week” with a knee injury after undergoing MRIs on Monday, coach John Harbaugh stated. “As the week goes on, we’ll see for this week,” Harbaugh said. “It’s probably less likely for this week but it’s not impossible. Then, after that, it’ll become more and more likely.” If Jackson is sidelined this week, backup Tyler Huntley would start for the Ravens (8-4), who play at the Pittsburgh Steelers (5-7) on Sunday. Huntley is 1-3 as a starter, throwing two touchdowns and four interceptions. In Sunday’s 10-9 triumph over the Denver Broncos, Jackson was hurt on the last play of the first quarter when […]

Clippers star George exits game with right knee soreness

After burying five 3-pointers and scoring 21 points in the first half, Paul George was held out of the second half of the LA Clippers’ 119-97 victory over the San Antonio Spurs because of right knee soreness. Clippers coach Ty Lue stated George’s injury did not appear to be serious. George felt good enough to remain on the bench in the second half and even took part in tossing T-shirts to the crowd during a timeout. George did not talk to reporters after the game, but Lue said the guard was feeling fine afterward. “He’s doing OK,” Lue said. “I haven’t seen what they […]

Astros’ Jeremy Pena caps brilliant rookie season with World Series MVP

Over the course of one amazing rookie season, Houston Astros shortstop Jeremy Pena has moved beyond his spring training status as Carlos Correa’s successor. At this point, it might be more accurate to say that Correa, Houston’s longtime All-Star shortstop who departed via free agency this spring, is Pena’s predecessor. Pena capped his amazing debut campaign Saturday by being named MVP of the World Series after the Astros clinched the title with a 4-1 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies. “It has a lot to do with my family, my upbringing,” Pena said. “Shoutout to my teammates as well. They took me in since day one. They […]

Padres pull out 5-3 victory over Dodgers, tie NLDS 1-all

Not many tabbed the San Diego Padres to defeat the Mets in New York in the wild-card round. Even fewer picked them versus the Los Angeles Dodgers, who have dominated the Padres in recent years and were baseball’s best team during the regular season. But they’re all even now. Manny Machado homered early and added an RBI double off Clayton Kershaw, and Jurickson Profar singled home the go-ahead run as San Diego defeated the Dodgers 5-3 on Wednesday to tie their NL Division Series at one game apiece. “We’re going to compete,” Machado said. “We’re going to try to do everything possible to help our team win every single […]

Díaz homers in 7th to break tie, Astros beat A’s 5-2

Aledmys Díaz hit a two-run homer, Lance McCullers Jr. had a solid start and the Houston Astros defeated the Oakland Athletics 5-2 on Thursday night for their fifth consecutive victory. At 94-50, American League-leading Houston’s magic number to clinch a postseason spot is one. The Astros are 13-3 in their last 16 games. Díaz broke a 2-2 tie in seventh inning, roping an 84-mph slider from Joel Payamps (3-6) into the left-field Crawford Boxes. Díaz has 11 homers this season. Houston picked up another run in the seventh when Kyle Tucker singled to score Yordan Alvarez. McCullers had 11 strikeouts — his most since July 29, 2018 — and held […]

France, Poland post victories, advance to EuroBasket semifinals

Slovenia roared back from a 23-point deficit, and it looked as if it was well on its way to a berth in the EuroBasket semifinals. Poland had other ideas — and in an absolute shocker, EuroBasket will have a new champion. Mateusz Ponitka had 26 points, 16 rebounds and 10 assists, and Poland defeated Slovenia 90-87 to move into the semifinals of the European championships for the first time since 1971. Vlatko Cancar led Slovenia with 21 points, and Goran Dragic scored 17. Luka Doncic was held to 14 points on 5-of-15 shooting, though he added 11 rebounds and seven […]

Drew Rasmussen takes perfect game into ninth inning in Tampa Bay Rays’ victory over Baltimore Orioles

Drew Rasmussen took a perfect game into the ninth inning, and the Tampa Bay Rays expanded their lead over Baltimore for the final AL wild card to 1½ games with a 4-1 triumph over the Baltimore Orioles on Sunday. Rasmussen allowed his first baserunner when Jorge Mateo doubled down the left-field line on the first pitch of the ninth. Mateo, who went 5-for-5 on Friday night, later scored on a Rasmussen wild pitch. The right-hander struck out seven over 8⅓ innings, the longest outing of his career. He threw 62 of 87 pitches for strikes. “I’ll take it,” Rasmussen said. “It helps our team’s chance of winning. When our […]

Rodgers, McMahon go deep, Rockies top Goldschmidt, Cards 8-6

Brendan Rodgers and Ryan McMahon hit back-to-back home runs in a six-run seventh inning, and the Colorado Rockies held off the St. Louis Cardinals 8-6 on Thursday to secure their first series victory since the All-Star break. The Rockies overcame three more hits from Paul Goldschmidt, including his 27th home run, to improve to 7-14 since July 22. Former Rockies slugger Nolan Arenado hit his 24th home run to extend his hitting streak to nine games, but struck out looking with two on in the ninth to end it for the Cardinals. They lost for the second time in three tries since winning seven consecutive. Jordan Hicks (3-6) walked two with […]

Orioles hit 4 homers in 7-4 victory over Blue Jays

The Baltimore Orioles and Toronto Blue Jays will be seeing a lot of each other in the coming weeks. On Monday night, Ramón Urías and the upstart Orioles measured up fine. Urías hit a three-run homer in the first inning, and Anthony Santander, Ryan Mountcastle and Austin Hays also went deep to lift Baltimore to a 7-4 triumph over the Blue Jays. The Orioles, who entered the day two games behind Seattle and Tampa Bay for the final two wild cards in the American League, pulled within three of Toronto for the first wild card. This was the first of 15 meetings down the stretch between the Blue Jays and Orioles. […]
