Grant, Blazers win again on the road, 106-95 over Pelicans

Jerami Grant scored 27 points and the Portland Trail Blazers overcame the absence of star guard Damian Lillard to beat the New Orleans Pelicans 106-95 on Thursday night. Anfernee Simmons hit five 3s and scored 23 points for Portland, which improved to 6-1 on the road. Former Pelican Josh Hart added 17 points for the Blazers. The Blazers, who won at Charlotte a night earlier, rested Lillard, who’d recently missed four games with a right calf strain. But Portland wound up not needing him to improve to 4-1 on its six-game trip and get the best of former Blazers guard CJ McCollum. Looking for the best online betting site and […]

Dusty Baker to return as champion Astros’ manager in 2023

For years, as Dusty Baker chased his first World Series title as a manager, the former big league outfielder would always say if he won one he’d like to win two. Baker will get an opportunity to do just that after he signed a one-year contract with the Houston Astros for the 2023 season. “How many times in your life do you say something and then have the opportunity to fulfill it?” Baker said Wednesday. “I wasn’t just talking. I meant what I said. I love keeping my word. So, hey man we’ve got a chance to win back-to-back and this is […]

Padres’ bats come alive in Game 2 comeback win to even NLCS

Juan Soto and Josh Hader absorbed most of the attention, but Brandon Drury and Josh Bell were in-season assets of similar importance to the San Diego Padres — a belief further emphasized by Fernando Tatis Jr.’s ensuing suspension. Drury and Bell represented key power bats in the middle of the lineup, a key source of protection for Soto and Manny Machado. And on Wednesday, with the Padres in desperate need of a victory, their bats finally came alive. Drury and Bell, struggling all postseason and for most of their Padres tenure, combined for five hits and drove in five runs in Game 2 of the National League Championship Series, keying an 8-5 […]

Yankees cruise to Game 1 win after Gerrit Cole escapes jam

Yankees pitcher Gerrit Cole could have melted down. In the third inning of Game 1 of the American League Division Series on Tuesday, Cole gave up a solo home run to Guardians outfielder Steven Kwan — who hit six in the regular season — before loading the bases by hitting shortstop Amed Rosario with a pitch, giving up a double to slugger Jose Ramirez and letting first baseman Josh Naylor to reach first on a fielder’s choice with just one out recorded in the inning. The inning provided every ingredient for the game to get out of hand really quickly. With the Yankees down a run, Cole faced a fork in the road. […]

Brewers’ playoff hopes end despite 6-5 win over Diamondbacks

Hunter Renfroe homered in a ninth-inning comeback and singled home the winning run in the 10th but the Milwaukee Brewers were eliminated from postseason contention on Monday night despite a 6-5 triumph over the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Brewers knew at the start of the night they could earn the NL’s final wild-card spot only if they won their last three matches while Philadelphia lost three consecutive. Milwaukee’s chances ended nine minutes after their walk-off when the Phillies (87-73) beat the beat the Houston Astros 3-0 to clinch the National League’s third and final wild card. Milwaukee (85-75) trailed 4-1 before tying the game in the ninth […]

Cool Papa Bell scores biggest upset in Hambletonian history with 52-1 odds

Coming from a baseball background, Scott Farber had a perfect name for the yearling he brought for $100,000 in 2020. Hall of Famer and Negro Leagues legend Cool Papa Bell was considered by many the fastest man ever to play, and Farber had hopes his trotter would one day emulate James Thomas Bell as a runner. The wish came through on Saturday as Cool Papa Bell scored the biggest upset in the history of the Hambletonian, charging late to edge filly Joviality S by three-quarters of a length in a crazy finish to the most prestigious race for 3-year-olds in […]

Giménez homer in 9th gives Guardians 5-3 win over Twins

Andrés Giménez watched his home run clear the center-field fence, kissed his bat and then flipped it while turning toward Minnesota’s stunned dugout. For the second day in a row, the Cleveland Guardians won a match they probably should have lost and handed the Twins another crushing defeat. Giménez blasted a two-run homer in the ninth inning as the Guardians walked off versus the Twins again, beating their AL Central rivals 5-3 on Thursday to take the five-game series and move within one game of first place. When he crossed the plate, Giménez was splashed with water and bubble gum rained down […]

Manoah sharp as Blue Jays beat White Sox, win 8th straight

Alek Manoah pitched into the eighth inning, Teoscar Hernández homered and the Toronto Blue Jays extended their winning streak to eight games by defeating the Chicago White Sox 8-3 Thursday. Santiago Espinal had three hits and a season-high three RBI as the surging Blue Jays won for the 12th time in 15 games. Chicago was swept in the three-game series and has lost six of eight. “I’d rather lose having a chance than not, but these are ones that you lose and you get angry,” manager Tony La Russa said. “You don’t get frustrated, you don’t get discouraged, you don’t pout. You just get angry and […]

Max Verstappen holds off Charles Leclerc for crucial win in Miami

Max Verstappen caught and passed both Ferraris and held off late pressure from Charles Leclerc to attain the first Miami Grand Prix. Starting third, defending world champion Verstappen bullied his way past the Ferrari of Carlos Sainz at Turn 1 to move up to second before overtaking Leclerc on Lap 9. Verstappen’s Red Bull had looked set for a routine win from there until Lando Norris’ McLaren was spun out of the race by Pierre Gasly, prompting a safety car in the closing stages. That brought Leclerc right back onto his tail, but Verstappen drove faultlessly to stay ahead, cutting […]
