Smile Happy Gives McPeek Another Kentucky Jockey Club Win

The horse that brought Kenny McPeek to the winner’s circle for the Grade 2 Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes at Churchill Downs was not the one that most fans would have expected. Instead of Tiz the Bomb, who scratched out of the G2 stakes earlier Saturday, it was Smile Happy, a son of Runhappy, who gave McPeek his third victory in the early prep race for the 2022 Kentucky Derby. In a field scratched down from 14 to 11, Smile Happy broke from post eight, taking up position in fifth around the first turn and onto the backstretch. Setting early fractions of […]

Phoenix Suns defeat Brooklyn Nets for 16th consecutive win, 1 win away from tying team mark

Moments after winning their 16th consecutive game, the Phoenix Suns could be heard clapping and shouting in celebration of their latest triumph on their way into the visitor’s locker room at Barclays Center. “We run New York!” one member of the Suns team could be heard shouting in the hallway. The Suns (17-3) completed a road sweep of the New York teams on back-to-back nights and moved within one win of matching their franchise’s longest winning streak with a 113-107 victory over the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday. The victory came one night after the Suns beat the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden. Now Phoenix will try […]

Los Angeles Dodgers’ Andrew Heaney confident he’ll bounce back after rough ’21

Andrew Heaney is eager to bounce back from a rough season. The Los Angeles Dodgers consider he can too, with some adjustments. The free agent left-hander signed an $8.5 million, one-year deal last week that brings him back to Southern California, where he pitched for the Angels from 2015 until getting shipped to the New York Yankees at the July trade deadline. He was a combined 8-9 with a 5.83 ERA last season. He fared worse in New York, where he was 2-2 with a 7.32 ERA in 12 games, including five starts, after the swap. “I didn’t turn it around, and that’s something I […]

Los Angeles Lakers win second straight in OT, saying poor showing in Portland provided a push

Following a second straight overtime victory, this one coming 120-117 versus a strong Miami Heat team on Wednesday, Anthony Davis stated a loss to the Portland Trail Blazers last weekend might have been a turning point in the Los Angeles Lakers’ young season. “After that Portland loss, we took that personally,” Davis said of Saturday’s 115-90 defeat, a game in which L.A. trailed by as many as 34 points. “We’re not that type of team. No energy. No effort. A little bit of selfishness. And we just tried to change that.” Playing without LeBron James for the fourth consecutive game because of an abdomen strain and losing two more […]

Novak Djokovic shakes off rust with win over Marton Fucsovics at Paris Masters

In his first singles match since missing out on a calendar-year Grand Slam, Novak Djokovic defeated Marton Fucsovics 6-2, 4-6, 6-3 in the second round of the Paris Masters on Tuesday. No. 1-ranked Djokovic showed signs of rustiness with a couple of unforced errors in the opening game, but he put pressure on his Hungarian opponent with the quality of his service returns, breaking him twice in the first set. The 20-time Grand Slam champion dropped serve with a forehand error to trail 2-1 in the second set. Fucsovics leveled the set score when Djokovic hit a return long. Looking for the best […]

Cody Bellinger evokes 2019 MVP prowess with 2-run double in Dodgers’ Game 2 win

For a brief, fleeting moment — the amount of time it took Giants reliever Dominic Leone’s sixth-inning fastball to travel from his hand to the plate — Cody Bellinger looked like the guy who was the 2019 National League MVP. Bellinger was balanced and quick, two elements of successful hitting that have eluded him all season. The result was a two-run double to left-center that put the Dodgers ahead 4-1 and set the stage for what became a 9-2 victory in Game 2 of the National League Division Series on Saturday. Bellinger hit .165 with a .542 OPS this season, unfathomably bad numbers for a player who […]

Cairo Memories is pointed to Breeders’ Cup after Surfer Girl win

A close third heading into the far turn, Cairo Memories set sail for home leaving the quarter pole and never was threatened through the lane en route to a 2 1/4-length score in Sunday’s $200,000 Surfer Girl Stakes at Santa Anita. Ridden by Kent Desormeaux, the 2-year-old filly by Cairo Prince got one mile on turf in 1:34.27 and now will likely start in the $1 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf on Nov. 5 at Del Mar. “She’s been doing everything right,” said trainer Bob Hess Jr. “We were encouraged by the way she broke her maiden and she’s been moving forward in […]

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. Arizona did more damage to the Mariners’ AL wild-card hopes with its second consecutive win, taking the series from a team that was surging just two days ago. 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. The 63rd running of the Bernard Baruch, contested over 1 1/16 miles on the Mellon turf course, saw morning-line favorite and early speed threat En Wye Cee scratch before the race after an early afternoon rainstorm.
