Trevor Bauer becomes first Cincinnati Reds pitcher to win Cy Young Award

The Cincinnati Reds’ Trevor Bauer has won the National League Cy Young Award, giving Cincinnati its first winner of the award. Bauer topped fellow finalists Yu Darvish of the Chicago Cubs and Jacob deGrom of the New York Mets in the voting announced by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America on Wednesday. DeGrom was looking to become the third pitcher in MLB history to collect the award in three consecutive campaigns.

He went 5-4 with […]

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 […]

Truth about hot numbers – Roulette

You can find numerous attitudes about the game of roulette among gamblers. Most roulette players do believe in hot numbers, and this post is meant to expose the truth about that phenomenon. What Are Hot Numbers and What Do They Have to Do With Biased Wheels? A roulette wheel has 38 numbers on it, which means that the odds of a precise number coming up are easy to calculate (1/38, or 37 to 1).

Horse named after fauci wins race at keeneland

A young Thoroughbred with a celebrity namesake broke his maiden during the second day of Keeneland’s five-day Summer Meet. Fauci, a 2-year-old colt trained by Wesley Ward, notched his first career triumph during his second career start in the opening race at the Lexington track on Thursday. Tyler Gaffalione steered the heavy favorite to a hard-fought victory in the 5 1/2-furlong, $70,000 turf contest. Fauci was the 5-2 morning-line favorite but was bet down to 1-1 odds at post time, perhaps due to the cachet carried by his moniker. Co-owner Phillip Antonacci named Fauci after Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National […]

Diodoro caps 52-win Oaklawn meet

Earlier in the Oaklawn Park meet, Robertino Diodoro had become just the fourth trainer in the track’s history to rack up 50 victories there in a single season. The Diodoro barn put an exclamation point on the season during closing Saturday with win No. 52 when Dunph, long ago a stakes winner, struck as a 57.8-1 winner in allowance optional claiming company. In a post-Jason Servis/Jorge Navarro racing world, however, winning at a 22% clip with a longshot first off the claim brings with it a certain level of mistrust. Reflecting on his Oaklawn training title Sunday, Diodoro staked his […]
