Tigers, Sox, and Cubs all fall short – Thursday Morning Sports Update

MLB – Major League Baseball Last Night Tampa Bay Rays 6, Detroit Tigers 1 Kansas City Royals 6, Chicago White Sox 2 Pittsburgh Pirates 3, Chicago Cubs 2 Rays 6, Tigers 1 – Paredes homers twice, Rodriguez leaves early, Rays win 6-1 Isaac Paredes homered twice against his former teammates to double his career big league total, helping the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Detroit Tigers 6-1 on an afternon Eduardo Rodriguez left in the first inning and headed to the injured list. Rodriguez lasted just one out and averaged 91.9 mph for his fastball, 2.4 mph below his season average, and left the mound with Tigers head athletic trainer Doug Teter. Drew Rasmussen allowed four hits in five shutout innings with seven strikeouts and no walks, improving to 4-0 with a 1.01 ERA in his last five starts. Royals 6, White Sox 2 – Witt homers off Giolito, Melendez connects as KC tops Chisox Bobby Witt Jr. and MJ Melendez homered and fellow rookie Emmanuel Rivera hit a go-ahead triple to lead the Kansas City Royals over the Chicago White Sox 6-2. Witt, Melendez and Rivera each had two hits. Rivera’s sinking liner escaped a diving Adam Engel for a triple that drove in Melendez with the tiebreaking run in the sixth. In his return from the COVID-19-related injured list, Giolito labored early, needing 54 pitches to complete the first two innings, allowing four hits and two walks. After Witt’s leadoff homer in the third, Giolito struck out six of the next seven batters and permitted only a pair of singles before being lifted after five innings. Pirates 3, Cubs 2 – Chicago-born rookie Suwinski homers, lifts Pirates over Cubs Rookie Jack Suwinski, who attended high school 20 minutes from Wrigley Field, hit a tiebreaking home run and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Cubs 3-2, ending Chicago’s four-game winning streak. Suwinski made his major league debut this season and began the day hitting .183 with two homers. With the score 2-all, the 23-year-old outfielder from Taft High School opened the fifth inning with a drive off Drew Smyly that barely cleared the center field wall. Michael Chavis’ single in the third snapped the Pirates’ scoreless streak of 20 innings. They scored in the eighth inning of Sunday’s 1-0 win over the Reds despite being no-hit by Hunter Greene and Art Warren, then lost 9-0 and 7-0 earlier this week at Wrigley Field. Today Chicago White Sox (Velasquez 2-3) at Kansas City (Hernández 0-3), 2:10 p.m. Arizona (Gallen 2-0) at Chicago Cubs (Stroman 1-3), 7:40 p.m. Tigers are off NHL – National Hockey League – 2022 Stanley Cup Playoffs – 1st Round Last Night Carolina Hurricanes 2, New York Rangers 1 – OT               (CAR Leads 1-0) Calgary Flames 9, Edmonton Oilers 6                               (CGY Leads 1-0) Tonight Tampa Bay Lightning at Florida Panthers, 7:00 p.m.            (TBL Leads 1-0) St. Louis Blues at Colorado Avalanche, 9:30 p.m.              (COL Leads 1-0) NBA – National Basketball Association – 2022 NBA Playoffs – Conference Finals Last Night Golden State Warriors 112, Dallas Mavericks 87             (GSW Leads 1-0) Tonight Boston Celtics at Miami Heat, 8:30 p.m.                            (MIA Leads 1-0) NBA – Barnes, Mobley, Cunningham unanimous NBA All-Rookie picks Rookie of the Year Scottie Barnes, Cleveland forward Evan Mobley and Detroit guard Cade Cunningham were unanimously voted to the NBA All-Rookie first team. Orlando’s Franz Wagner and Houston’s Jalen Green were the other players chosen for the first team by a panel of 100 sportswriters and broadcasters. Barnes, the No. 4 pick by the Toronto Raptors, edged Mobley for the Rookie of the Year in the smallest margin under the current format that began in 2002-03. They both received 200 points in the All-Rookie balloting, along with Cunningham, the 2021 No. 1 pick. WNBA – Women’s National Basketball Association Last Night Seattle Storm 74, Chicago Sky 71                 Storm 74, Sky 71 – Magbegor, Stewart power Storm to 74-71 win over Sky Ezi Magbegor scored 21 points, Breanna Stewart added 13 and the Seattle Storm beat the Chicago Sky 74-71. Magbegor added six rebounds and four assists, and Stewart had four steals for the Storm (2-3). Seattle led 74-62 after Gabby Williams’ 3-pointer with 2:28 remaining. Candace Parker scored the final seven points in a 9-0 Chicago run to close out the game. The Sky (2-2) had the ball with 9.1 seconds left, but Allie Quigley misfired on a 22-footer on the game’s final shot. Azura Stevens led Chicago with 18 points. Parker finished with 11 points and nine rebounds. NCAAWBKB – Central Michigan’s top scorer Molly Davis transfers to Iowa All-Mid-American Conference first-team pick Molly Davis of Central Michigan is transferring to Iowa. That word from Hawkeyes coach Lisa Bluder. The 5-foot-7 guard from Midland, Michigan, was a three-year starter for the Chippewas and led the team last season with 18.6 points and 4.7 assists per game. She has scored at least 10 points in 67 games, including a career-high 33 points against Ohio in the 2021 MAC Tournament semifinals. Davis will have two season of eligibility because of the COVID-19 bonus year. NCAAFB – Raise makes Ohio State’s Day one of highest-paid coaches Ohio State plans to hike Ryan Day’s annual salary to $9.5 million as part of a two-year contract extension that will put him among the nation’s highest-paid college football coaches. Day’s raise makes him the latest coach to crack $9 million per year, putting him in company with Alabama’s Nick Saban and Clemson’s Dabo Swinney and in line with recent megadeals given to Michigan State’s Mel Tucker and LSU’s Brian Kelly. In three seasons, Day has led the Buckeyes to a 34-4 record, including 23-1 in the Big Ten. NCAAFB – Saban calls out Texas A&M for using NIL deals to buy players Alabama coach Nick Saban called out Texas A&M, saying the school was “buying” players with name, image and likeness deals. The Aggies signed the top recruiting class in the country earlier this year. While speaking at an event in Birmingham, Alabama, Saban also mention Jackson State and Miami as schools that have used NIL deals to lure players. Jackson State coach Deion Sanders responded by calling Saban’s comments about a $1 million NIL deal for a highly touted recruit a lie. Saban said Alabama players earned more than $3 million from sponsorship and endorsement deals “the right way.” CFL – CFL, players’ union make tentative labor deal, ending strike The Canadian Football League and its players’ union have reached a tentative agreement on a new labor contract, ending the second strike in CFL history. The league made the announcement Wednesday night. The contract must be ratified by both the CFL board of governors and the CFL Players’ Association. The new collective bargaining agreement comes four days after players with seven of the league’s nine teams did not show up for the start of training camp. Players with the two remaining teams would have been eligible to walk off the job Thursday. Soccer – US Soccer equalizes pay in milestone with women, men The U.S. Soccer Federation has reached milestone agreements to pay its men’s and women’s teams equally. That makes the American national governing body the first in the sport to promise both sexes completely matching compensation. The federation has announced separate collective bargaining agreements through 2028 with the unions for both national teams. The move ends years of often acrimonious negotiations. One of the main sticking points was World Cup prize money. The unions agreed to pool FIFA’s payments for the men’s World Cup this year and next year’s Women’s World Cup. It will also pool the 2026 and 2027 tournaments.

Tigers win streak ends, Cubs continues, Sox split DH – Wednesday Morning Sports Update

MLB – Major League Baseball Last Night Tampa Bay Rays 8, Detroit Tigers 1 Chicago White Sox 3, Kansas City Royals 0 – Game 1 Kansas City Royals 2, Chicago White Sox 1 – Game 2 Chicago Cubs 7, Pittsburgh Pirates 0 Rays 8, Tigers 1 – Kiermaier, Phillips, Arozarena homer, Rays beat Tigers 8-1 Kevin Kiermaier, Brett Phillips and Randy Arozarena each homered and drove in two runs, Shane McClanahan struck out seven in seven innings and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Detroit Tigers 8-1. Ji-Man Choi also drove in two runs for the Rays, who broke Detroit’s four-game winning streak. Jeimer Candelario homered off McClanahan in the fifth for the Tigers, his third of the season. Kiermaier had three hits including a leadoff homer in the second off Detroit starter Beau Brieske. It was his fourth homer of the season. White Sox 3, Royals 0 & Royals 2, White Sox 1 – White Sox and Royals split doubleheader Brady Singer outdueled Davis Martin as the Kansas City Royals beat the Chicago White Sox 2-1 in the second game of a doubleheader. The White Sox won the first game 3-0. Singer (1-0) had his best outing since last September 5, when he threw seven shutout innings against the White Sox. He struck out a career high nine batters and didn’t walk anyone. He allowed just four hits in seven innings. Josh Staumont earned his third save in five chances. Davis Martin (0-1) made his debut and was equally impressive. He allowed just one run on five hits in five innings, walking one and striking out seven. Cubs 7, Pirates 0 – Cubs shut out Pirates for 2nd straight night, 7-0 Keegan Thompson combined with three relievers on a five-hitter, and the Chicago Cubs shut out the Pittsburgh Pirates for the second straight game, a 7-0 win that extended their winning streak to a season-best four. Jonathan Villar hit a go-ahead, solo homer in the third and added an RBI single. Pittsburgh has not scored since the eighth inning Sunday, when the Pirates beat Cincinnati 1-0 despite not getting any hits. The Pirates had five hits Tuesday and have just nine in three games, dropping their batting average to .223. The shutout was the fifth against Pittsburgh this season. Today Detroit (Rodriguez 1-2) at Tampa Bay (Rasmussen 3-1), 1:10 p.m.           WSJM/WCSY 6:20 Pittsburgh (Keller 0-5) at Chicago Cubs (Smyly 1-4), 7:40 p.m. Chicago White Sox (Giolito 2-1) at Kansas City (Greinke 0-2), 8:10 p.m. NHL – National Hockey League – 2022 Stanley Cup Playoffs – 1st Round Last Night Tampa Bay Lightning 4, Florida Panthers 1                        (TBL Leads 1-0) Colorado Avalanche 3, St. Louis Blues 2 – OT                   (COL Leads 1-0) Tonight New York Rangers at Carolina Hurricanes, 7:00 p.m.         (Game 1) Edmonton Oilers at Calgary Flames, 9:30 p.m.                   (Game 1) NBA – National Basketball Association – 2022 NBA Playoffs – Conference Finals Last Night Miami Heat 118, Boston Celtics 107                                 (MIA Leads 1-0) Tonight Dallas Mavericks at Golden State Warriors, 9:00 p.m.      (Game 1) NBA – Magic Moment: Orlando wins lottery, lands No. 1 pick The Orlando Magic won the NBA draft lottery and landed the No. 1 overall pick for the first time since they got Dwight Howard nearly two decades ago. Orlando finished with the worst record in the Eastern Conference at 22-60 and missed the playoffs for the eighth time in 10 years. But they got a huge win in the lottery, with the top pick for the first time since taking Howard in 2004. Duke’s Paolo Banchero, Gonzaga’s Chet Holmgren, Purdue’s Jaden Ivey and Auburn’s Jabari Smith are widely considered the most likely candidates to be taken first. Oklahoma City got the second pick, followed by Houston and Sacramento.  Detroit will pick fifth.  WNBA – Women’s National Basketball Association Last Night Atlanta Dreams 101, Indiana Fever 79 Dream 101, Fever 79 – Howard scores 19 as Dream beat Fever, again, 101-79 Rhyne Howard scored 19 points, Cheyenne Parker added 17 and the Atlanta Dream beat the Indiana Fever 101-79. Erica Wheeler had a season-high 16 points and rookie Kristy Wallace added a career-best 15 for Atlanta. Wallace was a second-round pick out of Baylor in 2018 and made her WNBA debut in the season opener after playing professionally in her native Australia the last four seasons. Howard hit 3-pointers to open and close an 11-2 opening run and the Dream never trailed. Victoria Vivians led Indiana (2-4) with 16 points. Danielle Robinson and Kelsey Mitchell score 12 points apiece. NaLyssa Smith, the No. 2 overall selection in last month’s draft, did not play for the Fever due to an ankle injury. Tonight Chicago Sky at Seattle Storm, 10:00 p.m. WNBA – State Dept pushing to see Griner; NBA Commissioner weighs in The State Department said Tuesday that it still pushing to have regular contact with WNBA star Brittney Griner, who has been detained in Russia for nearly three months. A consular official was able to meet with Griner last week, when her pre-trial detention in Russia was extended for one month. Griner has been detained since February, after vape cartridges containing oil derived from cannabis were allegedly found in her luggage at an airport in Moscow. The NBA also weighed in on the matter Tuesday. Commissioner Adam Silver says his league is also trying to bring Griner home. NFL – Bears try to prove they can support QB Justin Fields The Chicago Bears have brought in numerous new faces on offense, but none of the most expensive free agents and they used their second-round draft picks for defensive help, so at organized team activity workouts they face questions about how well they’ve supported quarterback Justin Fields. The Bears signed third-round receiver Velus Jones to a contract on Tuesday and added another offensive lineman in Shon Coleman, but they’re trying to prove competition and a thorough understanding of their new offense can compensate for the lack of top-level offensive help for Fields. NFL – Former Bears RB Tarik Cohen injured during streamed workout Former Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen, now a free agent, apparently suffered an injury during a training session being live-streamed on his Instagram account.  The hard-luck player, released in March by the Bears due to past injuries, grabbed the back of his leg after going down during the workout. The incident was seen on Instagram Live, with Cohen falling to the floor after back-peddling.  Cohen played three full seasons with Chicago but made it to only three games in 2021 before tearing knee ligaments. Horse Racing – Rich Strike skipping Preakness reignites Triple Crown debate Kentucky Derby winner Rich Strike’s absence from the Preakness has reignited the debate over whether the spacing of the three Triple Crown races should be changed. The current schedule of two weeks from the Derby to Preakness and then three weeks to the Belmont has been in place since 1969, except for 2020 when the pandemic disrupted the order. Proponents of change argue it’s better for horses to get more rest and that the Preakness would become a better race. Those in favor of the status quo point to the sport’s tradition and say it should be difficult to win the Triple Crown.

Make it four straight for the Tigers – Tuesday Morning Sports Update

MLB – Major League Baseball Last Night Detroit Tigers 3, Tampa Bay Rays 2 Chicago White Sox 5, Kansas City 3 – 10 innings Chicago Cubs 9, Pittsburgh Pirates 0 Tigers 3, Rays 2 – Castro homers in 9th, Tigers top Rays 3-2 for 4th straight Harold Castro hit his first home run of the year with two outs in the ninth inning, a tiebreaking shot that sent the Detroit Tigers past the Tampa Bay Rays 3-2 for their season-best fourth straight victory. Castro connected off Andrew Kittredge. Michael Fulmer got the win in relief and Gregory Soto pitched the ninth for his sixth save in seven tries. Jonathan Schoop hit a two-run homer that put Tigers rookie Alex Faedo in position for his first major league win, but Brett Phillips helped the Rays erase their 2-0 deficit with a home run in the sixth and a leadoff double in the eighth. Phillips scored on Wander Franco’s sacrifice fly to tie it. White Sox 5, Royals 3 – F/10 – Robert powers White Sox past Royals in 10 after Cueto’s gem Luis Robert hit a two-run homer in the 10th inning after Johnny Cueto’s impressive Chicago debut, and the White Sox defeated the Kansas City Royals 5-3 in the opener of a five-game series. Yasmani Grandal also had a two-run shot for the White Sox, who squandered a 3-0 lead in the eighth. Robert connected off Scott Barlow with two outs, scoring the automatic runner as well. The 36-year-old Cueto pitched six shutout innings in his first major league start this season after getting promoted from Triple-A Charlotte. The two-time All-Star allowed just two hits and two walks, striking out seven. Only one runner reached second base against him. Cubs 9, Pirates 0 – Contreras hits 1st-inning slam, Cubs beat Pirates 9-0 Willson Contreras led off with a double and became a rare leadoff hitter with a first-inning grand slam as the Chicago Cubs burst to an eight-run lead and beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 9-0. Contreras became the 10th leadoff hitter since 1901 with a first-inning slam, the first since Houston’s George Springer off Kansas City’s Edinson Vólquez on June 24, 2016. The slam was the 100th homer of Contreras’ career. Wade Miley retired his first 14 batters before Michael Chavis lined a single to left and ended a 13-inning hitless streak for Pittsburgh batters.

General manager Kelly McCrimmon says the front office believes a new coach would put the team in the best position to succeed next season. Vegas failed to qualify for the playoffs after a barrage of injuries compounded by salary cap problems wreaked havoc on the lineup. NHL – Love of hockey sends Greenberg from Cubs to Blackhawks Jeff Greenberg grew up watching Mario Lemieux and the Pittsburgh Penguins. He played hockey all the way through the club level at the University of Pennsylvania. It’s that love for the sport that prompted Greenberg to take on a unique challenge. After working in baseball for more than 15 years, Greenberg has moved over to the NHL as an associate general manager in the revamped front office of the Chicago Blackhawks. Greenberg is tasked with overseeing the strategic systems and processes for the team’s hockey operations department. He says it’s an “incredible opportunity.” NBA – National Basketball Association – 2022 NBA Playoffs – Conference Finals Tonight Boston Celtics at Miami Heat, 8:30 p.m.                            (Game 1) NBA – Woman files for protective order against Cavs’ Rajon Rondo A Louisville woman has filed for an emergency protective order against Cleveland Cavaliers guard Rajon Rondo and alleges the former Kentucky star brandished a gun and threatened her life. News outlets report the woman alleges Rondo “became enraged” last week during a confrontation and filed for the EPO on Friday in Jefferson County Family Court. She says in the EPO that Rondo then went outside and knocked over the trash cans, stomped on the landscaping lights and drove his car onto the lawn. Rondo returned and beat on a window with a gun before giving the gun to former Louisville Metro Police interim chief Yvette Gentry and leaving. WNBA – Women’s National Basketball Association Tonight Atlanta Dream at Indiana Fever, 7:00 p.m. NFL – Buck, Aikman excited about ‘starting over’ with ESPN Joe Buck and Troy Aikman have met their ESPN co-workers for the first time as they prepare to take over in the “Monday Night Football” booth. Both said Monday they are excited about the challenge of doing something new after 20 seasons together at Fox. Aikman had considered a deal with Amazon to call Thursday night games while reducing his schedule at Fox. But the logistics of that arrangement became difficult, and ESPN began talking to him about moving to Monday nights. Once Aikman was on board, ESPN snagged Buck from Fox, where he had a year left on his contract. Buck says the parting was amicable. NFL – AP source: Browns QB Watson to meet with NFL reps in Texas A person familiar with the situation tells The Associated Press that Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson will meet with NFL officials in Texas. Watson is facing 22 civil lawsuits from massage therapists accusing him of sexual misconduct and plans to meet with the league representatives this week, according to the person who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation. Watson faces potential discipline from the league, which is independently investigating whether he violated its personal conduct policy. Reporter Josina Anderson was first to report the meeting on Twitter. A league spokesman declined to comment on the tweet and said "there’s no timetable as the review is active and ongoing.” NCAA – States hands off when it comes to NCAA, athlete compensation The NCAA recently issued a warning that there are still rules to follow now that college athletes can make money off their fame and celebrity. It waited nearly a year to do so and it has raised speculation of a crackdown on some of the dealmakers working with college athletes. About two dozen states have laws regarding athlete compensation. The laws, however, have no enforcement mechanisms. There has been no indication so far that a state attorney general or prosecutor will go after a booster organization striking deals with athletes. CFL – Roughriders cancel practices as CFL work stoppage continues The Saskatchewan Roughriders became the fourth Canadian Football League team to cancel training-camp practices after the league and its players broke off negotiations on a new collective bargaining agreement. The Montreal Alouettes, Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Toronto Argonauts canceled practices on Sunday, a day after negotiations halted, putting players on seven of the league’s nine teams in a legal strike position. Players for the Calgary Stampeders and Edmonton Elks won’t be in a legal strike position until later this week under Alberta’s labor laws. Hamilton players planned to stand outside the team’s stadium in a show of unity on Tuesday.

Tigers sweep Orioles to end slump – Monday Morning Sports Update

MLB – Major League Baseball Yesterday Detroit Tigers 5, Baltimore Orioles 1 New York Yankees 5, Chicago White Sox 1 Chicago Cubs 3, Arizona Diamondbacks 2 Tigers 5, Orioles 1 – Cabrera homers, Skubal strikes out 11 as Tigers top Orioles Miguel Cabrera blasted his 505th career home run, Tarik Skubal equaled his career high with 11 strikeouts, and the Detroit Tigers completed their first series sweep this season by defeating the Baltimore Orioles 5-1. Cabrera had two hits, scored two runs and knocked in two more for the Tigers, who have won three straight. Harold Castro added three hits, a run scored and two RBIs. Skubal lasted six innings, limiting Baltimore to three hits and two walks. Trey Mancini’s homer off Rony Garcia in the ninth prevented the Orioles from being shut out in back-to-back games. Yankees 5, White Sox 1 – Cortes pitches 8 crisp innings as Yankees beat White Sox 5-1 Nestor Cortes pitched a career-high eight innings and the New York Yankees took advantage of Michael Kopech’s one wild stretch by beating the Chicago White Sox 5-1. New York managed just two hits: a second-inning single for Isiah Kiner-Falefa and a two-run homer by Joey Gallo in the ninth. But it was more than enough, thanks to the crafty Cortes. The 27-year-old left-hander allowed three hits, struck out seven and walked none. Adam Engel homered for Chicago, and Kopech pitched six innings of one-hit ball. He gave up four walks, and the Yankees took advantage. Cubs 3, Diamondbacks 2 – Schwindel’s go-ahead hit in 9th lifts Cubs over Arizona Frank Schwindel hit a tiebreaking single in the ninth inning and the Chicago Cubs beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 3-2. Patrick Wisdom and Rafael Ortega also homered for the Cubs, who have won four of six after a 3-14 stretch. Wisdom doubled to deep center field to lead off the ninth against Ian Kennedy and Schwindel reached out and hit a soft line drive over first base. Arizona lost its first series in six. The Diamondbacks had won their previous last five one-run games — they are 7-4 in one-run games this season after going was 10-31 in such games last season. Tonight Detroit (Faedo 0-1) at Tampa Bay (Kluber 1-2), 6:40 p.m.             WSJM/WCSY 6:20 Pittsburgh (Wilson 0-2) at Chicago Cubs (Miley 0-0), 7:40 p.m. Chicago White Sox (TBD) at Kansas City (Keller 1-3), 8:10 p.m. NBA – National Basketball Association – 2022 NBA Playoffs – 2nd Round Yesterday Boston Celtics 109, Milwaukee Bucks 81                          (BOS Wins 4-3) Dallas Mavericks 123, Phoenix Suns 90                            (DAL Wins 4-3) End Round 2 NHL – National Hockey League – 2022 Stanley Cup Playoffs – 1st Round Yesterday New York Rangers 4, Pittsburgh Penguins 3 – OT               (NYR Wins 4-3) Calgary Flames 3, Dallas Stars 2 – OT                              (CGY Wins 4-3) End Round 1 WNBA – Women’s National Basketball Association Yesterday Atlanta Dream 85, Indiana Fever 79 Dream 85, Fever 79 – Howard scores 33 points to help Dream beat Fever 85-79 Top-pick Rhyne Howard had a career-high 33 points — the most in any WNBA game this season — to help the Atlanta Dream beat the Indiana Fever 85-79. In a game that featured the two top picks in last month’s draft, Howard made 9-of-18 from the field and 12-of-17 from the free-throw line with three steals. Indiana’s NaLyssa Smith, who was picked second, had 18 points before leaving the game with about 6 1/2 minutes left due to a right ankle injury. Kelsey Mitchell led the Fever with 27 points, her third consecutive game scoring at least 24. NASCAR – Kurt Busch wins for MJ Kurt Busch pinched his way past Kyle Larson for the lead with eight laps to go, then drove his gaudy Jordan Brand-styled car away from the reigning NASCAR Cup Series champion to win Sunday’s race at Kansas Speedway.  It was the second win for the up-and-coming 23XI Racing team owned by Michael Jordan and Denny Hamlin, who followed the two leaders and Kyle Busch across in fourth place. Bubba Wallace won the team’s first race last year at Talladega. Golf – PGA – Lee rallies to win Nelson for 2nd straight year K.H. Lee has successfully defended his Byron Nelson title. Lee fired a 9-under 63 for a one-shot victory over local favorite Jordan Spieth (speeth) at birdie-besieged TPC Craig Ranch. Lee’s 240-yard shot on the par-5 12th hole stopped less than 5 feet from the pin, and the eagle put him in front for good.  Spieth shot a 67 to finish a stroke ahead of Hideki Matsuyama and Sebastián Muñoz (69), who held or shared the lead the first three rounds. Matsuyama shot a 62 and Xander Schauffele had a career-best 61 to finish in a tie for fifth. Golf – Champions – Stricker completes dominant performance Steve Stricker completed at a wire-to-wire victory in the Regions Tradition, closing with a 4-under 68 for a six-stroke victory and his fourth PGA Tour Champions major title.  Stricker’s second Tradition win at Greystone Golf & Country Club came in his third event since returning from a six-month absence for health reasons. Two straight birdies punctuated the dominant performance.  Paidrag Harrington finished second, birdieing the final two holes for a 68.  Steven Alker was in the group at 14 under after a 72. Golf – LPGA – Australian Lee hangs on to win Founders Cup LPGA scoring leader Minjee Lee made her only three birdies on the back nine and captured the Cognizant Founders Cup by two shots over Lexi Thompson.  The 25-year-old Australian took the lead for good with a birdie on the par-5 14th hole at Upper Montclair Country Club. She closed with a 2-under 70 for a 72-hole total of 19-under 269 in the event that honors the 13 founding members of the LPGA Tour.  Lee won her seventh career title and first since taking her first major at last year’s Evian Championship. CFL – 3 CFL teams cancel opening practices amid work stoppage Three Canadian Football league teams canceled their opening training-camp practices Sunday, a day after the league and players union broke off negotiations on a collective bargaining agreement. The Montreal Alouettes, Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Toronto Argonauts canceled practices, with more teams expected to follow suit. The previous CBA expired at midnight, with the CFL Players’ Association directing players from seven of the nine teams to participate in a work stoppage beginning at 12:01 a.m. EDT Sunday. Players with the Edmonton Elks and Calgary Stampeders reported to their camps because they will not be in a legal strike position under Alberta laws until later this month. The lone previous CFL strike came in 1974 and was resolved before the start of the season. IndyCar – IndyCar’s aeroscreen gets mixed reviews in 1st rain test IndyCar officials will spend the next few days collecting information and gathering advice about improving aeroscreen visibility for races held in the rain. Many drivers complained Saturday that they struggled to see other cars late in the IndyCar Grand Prix — even though each has flashing red lights. It was the most intense rainfall the series has competed in since 2018. Race runner-up Simon Pagenaud suggested adding a windshield wiper to the cars. Frye said series officials also will look into whether the use or non-use of tear-off covers by teams could have played a part Saturday.

Oakland takes 4 of 5 in Detroit-Friday Morning Sports Update

MLB – Major League Baseball Yesterday Oakland A’s 5, Detroit Tigers 3 New York Yankees 15, Chicago WHITE Sox 7 Cubs were off A’s 5, Tigers 3 – Brown hits go-ahead HR in 8th, A’s take 4 of 5 from Tigers Seth Brown hit a tiebreaking, two-run homer in the eighth inning and the Oakland Athletics beat the Detroit Tigers 5-3. Michael Fulmer got the first two outs of the eighth, but Jed Lowrie drew a walk and Brown homered. The Tigers have lost nine of 10. Oakland came to Comerica Park this week with a nine-game losing streak, but won four times in an unusual five-game series. The Athletics’ only loss came when they were the official home team in the first game of Tuesday’s doubleheader — a game they were originally supposed to host before the season’s first series was postponed by the lockout. Miguel Cabera made it 3-all in the Detroit sixth with his 601st career double, tying Barry Bonds for 17th all-time. Yankees 15, White Sox 7 – Stanton homers twice as Yankees beat White Sox 15-7 Giancarlo Stanton homered twice and drove in six runs, and the New York Yankees used a seven-run eighth inning to beat the Chicago White Sox 15-7 for their fourth straight victory. Aaron Judge and Josh Donaldson also connected for major league-leading New York in the opener of an eight-game trip. Judge had four RBIs and Donaldson drove in three runs. Led by its relentless lineup, New York won for the 16th time in 18 games. Stanton and Co. are off to the franchise’s best start since the Yankees also opened 23-8 in 2003.

It’s a juicy matchup of the team generally considered the title favorite by oddsmakers in the Bills traveling to SoFi Stadium, where the Rams won the championship over Cincinnati in February.

They’re not likely to find out until Indianapolis 500 practice begins Tuesday. Still, it was part of the driver’s discussion as they prepared for qualifying for Saturday’s IndyCar Grand Prix. The slippery apron at the exit of the oval’s pit lane caused three cars to spin and led to two crashes in last month’s testing. But because the cars will race at slower speeds on the road course and run the opposite direction, the impact should be reduced this weekend. Horse Racing – Derby Winner to skip Preakness There will be no Triple Crown winner in thoroughbred racing this year.  Rich Strike will not run in the Preakness as owner Rich Dawson and trainer Eric Reed stick to their initial plan to rest the colt for five weeks. Rich Strike went off at 80-1 in winning the Kentucky Derby last weekend.  The plan now is to have Rich Strike ready to run in the Belmont Stakes on June 11. Rugby – US to host men’s and women’s Rugby World Cups for first time The United States will stage a Rugby World Cup for the first time after being voted as the host of the men’s tournament in 2031 and the women’s tournament two years later. Australia also is staging back-to-back tournaments in 2027 (men) and 2029 (women). World Rugby announced the host nations for all the World Cups from 2025-33 after a meeting of its council in Dublin. The sport is breaking new ground by taking its most prestigious tournament to North America. World Rugby regards it as an area of untapped potential in both a commercial and sporting sense.

Another shutout loss for the Tigers-Thursday Morning Sports Update

MLB – Major League Baseball Yesterday Oakland A’s 9, Detroit Tigers 0 Cleveland Guardians at Chicago White Sox, PPD – Covid Chicago Cubs 7, San Diego Padres 5 A’s 9, Tigers 0 – Logue pitches gem in 2nd start, A’s pound Tigers 9-0 Zach Logue pitched seven scoreless innings in his second major league start and the Oakland Athletics spoiled the debut of Joey Wentz by thumping the floundering Detroit Tigers 9-0. Sean Murphy and Kevin Smith each drove in two runs and Christian Bethancourt supplied three hits, two runs scored and an RBI for the A’s. Oakland, which entered Detroit on a nine-game losing streak, is 3-1 in the five-game series. The Tigers have lost eight of their last nine, scoring two runs or less in each of those defeats. Guardians at White Sox, PPD/Covid – COVID outbreak postpones Guardians-White Sox game Major League Baseball has its first coronavirus-related postponement of the season. Today’s series finale in Chicago between the White Sox and the Cleveland Guardians has been called off due to a COVID-19 outbreak in Cleveland’s clubhouse. Manager Terry Francona was among those testing positive. MLB said there were “multiple positive COVID-19 tests” within Cleveland’s organization and the game was postponed to allow for more testing and contact tracing. Francona tested positive a few hours before the scheduled first pitch. The team said the 63-year-old wasn’t showing any symptoms. Cubs 7, Padres 5 – Rivas’ key hit vs hometown Padres lifts Cubs to 7-5 win Alfonso Rivas hit a tiebreaking two-run single against his hometown team in the eighth inning, and the banged-up Chicago Cubs beat the San Diego Padres 7-5. Rivas came up with the bases loaded and singled to center off Luis García. The Padres announced during the game that manager Bob Melvin had prostate surgery and is expected to make a full recovery. Melvin said Tuesday that he hoped to miss only the first six games of the Padres’ forthcoming nine-game road trip. Willson Contreras homered for the Cubs, who took two of three in the series. Today Oakland (Kaprielian 0-2) at Detroit (Brieske 0-2), 1:10 p.m.                 WSJM/WCSY 12:50 N.Y. Yankees (Gil 0-0) at Chicago White Sox (Cease 3-1), 8:10 p.m. Cubs are off MLB – Cubs SS Hoerner leaves game after colliding with umpire Chicago Cubs shortstop Nico Hoerner has exited a game against the San Diego Padres with a sore right ankle an inning after colliding with second base umpire Dan Iassogna in center field. Hoerner was on the ground in pain after the collision in the first inning and was tended to by a trainer. He stayed in the game and batted in the second, striking out. He was replaced in the bottom half of the inning by Ildemaro Vargas. Hoerner was running out to take the throw from Jason Heyward after Jurickson Profar hit a flyball over the center fielder’s head for a triple when the collision occurred.

Chicago led 36-17 at halftime after holding New York to 20% shooting, including 1 of 12 from 3-point range. The Sky opened the third quarter on a 13-4 run to take a 28-point lead at 49-21, and New York reached 50 points on Jocelyn Willoughby’s layup with 20.2 seconds left in the fourth. Candace Parker added 11 points for Chicago. NFL – Bears add depth at wide receiver by signing Dante Pettis The Chicago Bears added depth at wide receiver, agreeing to a deal with free agent Dante Pettis. The 26-year-old Pettis announced the move on Twitter, posting a photo of himself signing a contract. Drafted by San Francisco in the second round in 2018, he has 52 receptions for 739 yards and nine touchdowns over four seasons with the 49ers and New York Giants. Pettis was limited to three games with the Giants last year because of a shoulder injury on a punt return. The Bears also claimed tight end Rysen John off waivers from the Giants and signed quarterback Nathan Peterman. They waived tight end Jesper Horsted following a failed physical and quarterback Ryan Willis. NCAAFB – ACC mulling division-free football scheduling model by 2023 The Atlantic Coast Conference is mulling a change to its football scheduling model that could include the elimination of divisions by 2023. Discussions are taking place during the league’s annual spring meetings. The focus is a 3-5-5 model that would have teams playing three opponents as permanent scheduling partners annually then rotating through the other 10 teams over two seasons in that eight-game schedule. Currently teams can go years without meeting and have one permanent cross-division opponent. The discussions come after the ACC’s 2020 season nixed divisions and added Notre Dame for one year amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Horse Racing – Derby-winning rider Leon serving suspension by Ohio stewards The jockey of Kentucky Derby upset winner Rich Strike is currently serving a four-day suspension that was handed down by Ohio racing stewards. His agent says it won’t prevent him from riding the horse in next week’s Preakness. Stewards last week suspended Sonny Leon for careless riding in the third race on April 27 at Thistledown Racecourse, during which he “deliberately and aggressively” steered One Glamorous Gal toward the rail to block other horses in the stretch.

MLB – Major League Baseball Yesterday Detroit Tigers 6, Oakland A’s 0 – Game 1 Oakland A’s 4, Detroit Tigers 1 – Game 2 Chicago White Sox 4, Cleveland Guardians 1 San Diego Padres 5, Chicago Cubs 4 Tigers 6, A’s 0 / A’s 4, Tigers 1 – Road teams sweep unusual A’s-Tigers doubleheader Tarik Skubal led the Tigers to a 6-0 win over Oakland as the visiting team in the opener of a unique doubleheader caused by Major League Baseball’s lockout. With the Athletics as the visiting team in the second game, 25-year-old Adrian Martinez (1-0) pitched 5 1/3 scoreless innings in his major league debut to help Oakland to a 4-1 victory. In a matchup of last-place teams, Detroit ended a 27-inning scoreless streak in the opener. Oakland (12-19) then won for the second time in 12 games and sent the Tigers (9-21) to their seventh loss in eight games. White Sox 4, Guardians 1 – Sheets homers, Anderson 2 RBIs, White Sox top Guardians 4-1 Gavin Sheets homered in his second straight game, Tim Anderson had three hits and 2 RBIs and the Chicago White Sox shook off the previous night’s big collapse by beating the Cleveland Guardians 4-1. Starter Lucas Giolito went seven innings and gave up just the one run that came on a Josh Naylor homer to win his second straight start. He allowed six hits, struck out five and walked one. The White Sox won their seventh of eight games. Naylor had two hits. Cleveland starter Cal Quantrill went 6 1/3 innings, allowing four runs and 10 hits. Padres 5, Cubs 4 – Machado, Padres beat Cubs 5-4 in Clevinger’s return Manny Machado hit a go-ahead double in the sixth inning and the San Diego Padres beat the Chicago Cubs 5-4 hours after finding out manager Bob Melvin will have prostate surgery. Melvin announced before the game that he’ll have surgery Wednesday. He said he doesn’t think he has cancer, “but they won’t know until they get in there.” Mike Clevinger pitched well for 4 1/3 innings in his first start at Petco Park since late in the 2020 season. He missed last season while rehabbing after Tommy John surgery. Chicago’s Wade Miley lasted three innings in his Cubs debut.

Azocar slumped to the ground in disappointment after the play. Rivas grew up in nearby Chula Vista and went to La Jolla Country Day. His homer tied the game at 2 in the third inning. It was his second and came off Mike Clevinger, who made his first start in San Diego since Sept. 23, 2020.. MLB – White Sox’s Jiménez making quick strides from torn hamstring Chicago White Sox outfielder Eloy Jiménez says he is making quick strides in his recovery from a torn hamstring. Jiménez says he is coming along sooner than expected. He is pain free and has been running and swinging. Jiménez was injured trying to beat out a grounder at Minnesota on April 23. The 25-year-old slugger felt it as he was running toward the base. He then stretched for the bag, stumbled and was taken from the field on a cart. Jiménez had surgery a few days later, and the White Sox said he would be out six to eight weeks. MLB – Anderson suspension dropped in MLB settlement, fine remains Major League Baseball dropped the one-game suspension of Chicago White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson for giving fans the middle finger during a game on April 20 as part of a settlement with the players’ association. He agreed to a fine as part of the settlement, which avoided an appeal before MLB special adviser John McHale Jr. Anderson had three errors in the first two innings of Chicago’s 11-1 loss in the opener of a doubleheader and made the gesture toward a fan while out in the field. MLB senior vice president Michael Hill announced the suspension two days later. NBA – National Basketball Association – 2022 NBA Playoffs – 2nd Round Last Night Miami Heat 120, Philadelphia 76ers 85                              (MIA Leads 3-2) Phoenix Suns 110, Dallas Mavericks 80                            (PHX Leads 3-2) Tonight Boston Celtics 116, Milwaukee Bucks 108                        (Series Tied 2-2) Golden State Warriors 101, Memphis Grizzlies 98            (GSW Leads 3-1) NBA – Spurs owner insists NBA team will stay in San Antonio San Antonio Spurs owner Peter J. Holt sent a message Tuesday to fans worried he may try to move the franchise: the team isn’t going anywhere. An announced desire to have the Spurs move a few games to Austin had raised some local worries that the owners may be considering moving the team. Holt’s message posted to social media insisted the Spurs would stay in San Antonio. NBA – Bob Lanier, NBA force who left big shoes to fill, dies at 73 Basketball big man Bob Lanier has died after a short illness. He was 73. Lanier was one of the NBA’s top players of the 1970s, muscling up beside the likes of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Lanier played 14 seasons with the Detroit Pistons and Milwaukee Bucks. The left-hander averaged more than 20 points and 10 rebounds. He was the No. 1 draft pick in 1970 after leading St. Bonaventure to the Final Four. In 1992, he made the Hall of Fame, where a bronzed pair of his giant sneakers is displayed.

Montreal won the draft lottery on Tuesday night. It follows a turbulent season in which they finished last in the overall standings. The New Jersey Devils shook up the draft order by winning the second of two lottery drawings and moving from the fifth to second slot in the draft order. Montreal will host this year’s event on July 7 and 8. It ends a long wait after the draft was held remotely due to the coronavirus pandemic in each of the past two years.  The Red Wings will pick 8th, while the Blackhawks had the 6th pick, but it was traded last year in the deal for Seth Jones. WNBA – Women’s National Basketball Association Last Night Indiana Fever 82, Minnesota Lynx 76 Fever 82, Lynx 76 – Indiana snaps 6-game losing streak against Minnesota Kelsey Mitchell scored 26 points, Crystal Dangerfield had 10 points and six assists against her former team and the Indiana Fever beat the Minnesota Lynx 82-76 to snap a six-game losing streak in the series.

Dangerfield, the 2020 rookie of the year, was 3 of 7 from the field in 21 minutes. Rookie NaLyssa Smith added nine points for Indiana. Sylvia Fowles had 26 points and 14 rebounds to lead Minnesota.

That announcement was made Tuesday by Fox Corp. CEO Lachlan Murdoch on an investor call. Brady had announced his retirement at the end of last season, but later renounced it and said he was going to play at least another season as the Tampa Bay Bucs quarterback. Signing the seven-time Super Bowl champion was a coup for Fox after its top football announcing team, Joe Buck and Troy Aikman, recently left for ESPN. Murdoch says it’s up to Brady when he decides to retire. NFL – Slime Time: Nickelodeon to broadcast Christmas Day NFL game The NFL game on Christmas Day between the Broncos and Rams will be broadcast by Nickelodeon. The network, which previously televised two playoff games, and CBS will handle TV duties on Dec. 25 at 4:30 p.m. EST. The Super Bowl champion Rams will host the game, which also will be streamed by Paramount+. Nickelodeon has had success with its youth-oriented telecasts during wild-card weekend alongside the NFL broadcast on CBS. This season, that collaboration will shift to the regular season and Christmas Day. It’s expected to be part of a holiday tripleheader. NCAA – NIL expert predicts $50,000 minimum pay for Power 5 players College football and men’s basketball players on scholarship in one of the major conferences can expect to soon earn a minimum of $50,000 each year he plays because of the influx of cash from booster collectives brokering name, image and likeness deals. That prediction comes from Blake Lawrence. He’s co-founder and CEO of Opendorse, a company that helps athletes and schools navigate the NIL landscape. Indy 500 – Sarah Fisher selected as Indy 500 celebrity pace car driver IndyCar veteran Sarah Fisher has been selected as the celebrity pace car driver for this month’s Indianapolis 500. Fisher has been the regular pace-car driver for series events at Indianapolis Motor Speedway for years. This time she won’t be taking the handoff from some high-profile non-racing veteran. Instead she’ll be in the car for the entire May 29 race. She will drive the 670-horsepower 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 70th- year anniversary edition, the automobile manufacturer announced. Fisher made nine 500 starts in her career and was the first female to win an IndyCar pole. Boxing – No charges for Mike Tyson for punching airplane passenger Authorities will not file criminal charges against former heavyweight champ Mike Tyson after he was recorded on video punching a fellow first-class passenger aboard a plane at San Francisco International Airport last month. The San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office says Tuesday that it closed the case. The victim and Tyson requested that charges not be filed. The video shows Tyson repeatedly striking the unidentified man in the head, drawing blood. The footage was first shared by TMZ, which said it was recorded on a JetBlue Airways plane bound for Florida. Tyson representatives have said the boxer was on a flight with an aggressive passenger.

Tony Kemp hit a solo home run in the third and Chad Pinder added an RBI single in the fourth. Blackburn gave up four hits and struck out three before leaving in the seventh inning. Despite walking two batters, rookie Dany Jiménez escaped damage and earned his fifth save to finish off the four-hitter. Guardians 12, White Sox 9 – F/11 – Naylor powers big comeback, Guardians stun White Sox in 11 Josh Naylor hit a tying grand slam with two outs in the ninth inning and a three-run homer in the 11th, powering a huge comeback that carried the Cleveland Guardians to a wild 12-9 victory over the Chicago White Sox. Naylor also had a run-scoring double in the eighth and finished with eight RBIs for the Guardians, who stunned Chicago by rallying from an 8-2 deficit in the ninth aided by two White Sox errors. Andrés Giménez led off the inning with a homer and then doubled home a run in the 10th as the Guardians snapped Chicago’s six-game winning streak. Cubs 6, Padres 0 – Hendricks brilliant for 8 2/3 innings as Cubs snap skid Kyle Hendricks came within one out of three-hit shutout for the Chicago Cubs, who beat the listless San Diego Padres 6-0 to snap a season-high five-game losing streak. Manager David Ross came out to get Hendricks after he got Jurickson Profar to fly out to left on his 116th pitch. Hendricks struck out rookie José Azocar to open the ninth and walked Jake Cronenworth on six pitches before going to a full count against Profar. Scott Effros came on and retired Manny Machado. Hendricks (2-3) didn’t allow a runner to reach scoring position.

They failed to qualify this year after starting the season on a 13-game road trip and enduring a string of coronavirus-related absences and injuries that derailed the season. Trotz had one year left on his contract. He joined the Islanders in 2018 after winning the Stanley Cup with the Washington Capitals.

It is not clear whether the NCAA will clamp down on boosters offering money to recruits or whether it will be taken to court over it. NFL – Mississippi sues Favre, wrestlers, over welfare misspending The Mississippi Department of Human Services is suing retired NFL quarterback Brett Favre, three former pro wrestlers and several other people and businesses to try to recover millions of misspent welfare dollars that were intended to help some of the poorest people in the nation. The lawsuit was filed Monday. It says the defendants “squandered” more than $20 million in money from the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families anti-poverty program. The suit was filed less than two weeks after a mother and son who ran a nonprofit group and an education company in Mississippi pleaded guilty to state criminal charges tied to the misspending.

Tigers and Cubs swept, White Sox sweep Boston – Monday Morning Sports Update

MLB – Major League Baseball Yesterday Houston Astros 5, Detroit Tigers 0 Chicago White Sox 3, Boston Red Sox 2 Los Angeles Dodgers 7, Chicago Cubs 1 Astros 5, Tigers 0 – Grand slam by Diaz vs. Tigers helps Astros to 7-0 homestand Aledmys Díaz hit a grand slam, Jake Odorizzi threw five innings of one-hit ball and the Houston Astros beat the Detroit Tigers 5-0 for a four-game sweep and their seventh straight win. Díaz’s second home run of the season came in the third inning on a 92 mph fastball from Tigers reliever Drew Hutchison. It went 347 feet to left-center field, scoring José Altuve, Alex Bregman and Yordan Alvarez for a 4-0 lead. Houston finished a red-hot homestand against Seattle and Detroit 7-0. When the homestand began, they were 11-11. White Sox 3, Red Sox 2 – Abreu gets 2-run double; White Sox complete sweep over BoSox Dallas Keuchel halted his three-start losing streak with six solid innings, José Abreu hit a two-run double and the Chicago White Sox beat the Boston Red Sox 3-2 for their season-high sixth straight victory. Leury García added an RBI single for the White Sox, who moved over .500 for the first time since April 20 and completed a 5-0 road trip, including three wins at Fenway Park. Christian Vázquez had an RBI single for Boston, which has lost a season-most five straight and 14 of 18. Dodgers 7, Cubs 1 – Buehler stars in 100th career start as Dodgers sweep Cubs Walker Buehler pitched seven sparkling innings in his 100th career start, and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the sliding Chicago Cubs 7-1 for their sixth consecutive victory. Buehler improved to 3-0 with a 0.43 ERA over his last three outings. The right-hander allowed one run and four hits, struck out six and walked two. Cody Bellinger had three hits for Los Angeles, and Justin Turner and Freddie Freeman each contributed a sacrifice fly. Chicago lost for the 14th time in 17 games. It managed just three runs and 15 hits in the three-game sweep by Los Angeles. Tonight Oakland (Blackburn 3-0) at Detroit (Pineda 1-1), 7:10 p.m.                   WSJM/WCSY 6:50 Cleveland (Plesac 1-3) at Chicago White Sox (Kopech 0-0), 8:10 p.m. Chicago Cubs (Hendricks 1-3) at San Diego (Gore 2-0), 9:40 p.m. MLB – Cubs scratch RHP Marcus Stroman, put him on IL The Chicago Cubs scratched Marcus Stroman for their game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, and then lost starter Justin Steele to a left hand injury. Stroman was placed on the injured list without a designation, likely meaning the right-hander was shelved by a COVID-19-related issue. Steele stepped in, making his first appearance since April 30. But he was checked on by manager David Ross and a trainer before the fifth inning, and then walked off the mound after a short conversation. MLB – White Sox eager for Moncada The scraped-up White Sox hope third baseman Yoán Moncada can make his season debut when Chicago opens a three-game home series against Cleveland. The 26-year-old Moncada has been out since the last week of spring training with a strained right oblique, one of several key players sidelined for the South Siders this season. The White Sox have won six straight to climb back over .500 for the first time since April 20 despite still missing sluggers Eloy Jiménez and Andrew Vaughn and starter Lance Lynn. Right-hander Michael Kopech will start the opener Monday night against the Guardians’ Zach Plesac.

Destanni Henderson, the No. 20 overall selection in last month’s draft, scored a season-high 19 points for Indiana. Kelsey Mitchell had 15 points and seven assists, NaLyssa Smith had 13 points and nine rebounds. Alanna Smith’s layup made it 64-all with 7 minutes to play but Canada answered with a driving layup to ignite a 10-0 spurt and the Fever trailed the rest of the way. NASCAR – Logano bumps Byron on next-to-last lap for Darlington win Joey Logano bumped leader William Byron from behind and into the wall on the next to last lap to win at Darlington Raceway on Sunday. Logano tracked Byron for about 25 laps until running up to his rear bumper, smacking it hard and sending Byron into the wall. Logano went on to his first win of the season and his first ever at the track “Too Tough To Tame.” The victory ended a 40-race winless drought for Logano, who last won on the dirt at Bristol in 2021. Byron fell to 13th and called Logano “an idiot.” Formula 1 – Verstappen wins inaugural F1 race in Miami Max Verstappen used an aggressive early pass on Formula One championship leader Charles Leclerc then controlled the inaugural Miami Grand Prix for his third victory of the season.  The reigning world champion started third, but Red Bull quickly got the best of Ferrari for a second consecutive race.  Ferrari settled for second and third for Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz Jr. Golf – PGA – Homa rallies for fourth career PGA win Max Homa now has four career PGA wins, with half of those coming in the Wells Fargo Championship.  Homa turned a two-stroke deficit into a two-shot win over Keegan Bradley near Washington, D.C. It comes three years after he won the Wells Fargo title at Quail Hollow. The tournament was moved to Maryland this year while Quail Hollow prepares to host the Presidents Cup in September.  A two-shot swing on the 15th hole gave Homa a three-shot lead. He closed with a 2-under 68 for an 8-under total in his second win of the season. Golf – Champions – Flesch wins at Sugarloaf again Steve Flesch rallied from four shots behind with a 7-under 65 for a one-shot victory in the Mitsubishi Electric Classic, his second title at the TPC Sugarloaf.  Flesch also won this tournament in 2018, his only other win on the PGA Tour Champions.  David Toms had a two-shot lead on the back nine when he missed a 6-foot birdie putt on the 13th and then a 6-footer for par on the 14th. Horse Racing – Rich Strike’s team considering Preakness options after upset The celebration after Rich Strike’s stunning Kentucky Derby upset continued long into the night. The 80-1 longshot has the sports world buzzing. Next up is for Rich Strike’s trainer Eric Reed and the rest of his chestnut colt’s team to decide whether the storybook journey continues at the 147th Preakness on May 21 in Baltimore. Similar decisions also loom for the favorites whom Rich Strike surged past for the improbable win at Churchill Downs.
