Justus Sheffield has another strong start as Mariners snap losing skid
Even in a brief season where he will only make 10 starts, Justus Sheffield has provided the Seattle Mariners some reassurance about his future in their starting rotation and his status as a key part of the current rebuild.In his ninth start of the season and facing a solid San Diego Padres’ lineup, the rookie left-hander worked six innings, allowing one run on six hits with a walk and five strikeouts to set the tone in the Mariners’ much-needed 4-1 victory, ending a four-game losing streak.The win didn’t come without a tense moment provided by the bullpen, like always. The Mariners’ “closer” Y...

No comeback this time for Heat as lead in East finals cut to 2-1 after 117-106 loss to Celtics
Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra did what he could when it came to a warning.“This game is going to be different,” he told his players in the locker room prior to Saturday night’s Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals, “is going to feel different than the first two.”ESPN captured his words. The problem is his players seemingly didn’t fully get the message.So the lead in the best-of-seven series is now down to 2-1, after a 117-106 loss to the Boston Celtics.As with the first two games of the series, when the Heat trailed by 14 points in Game 1 and then 17 in Game 2, there again was a sizeable ...
Twins bash their way to 8-1 win over Cubs, clinch postseason berth
CHICAGO — Even amid a season taking place with masks and taxi squads and virus tests and no fans in the seats, this may rank as the strangest part about Twins baseball in 2020: Excellent pitching is the reason they will take part in the playoffs.It’s the reason they clinched that status on Saturday, too.Eddie Rosario, Miguel Sano and Josh Donaldson cracked solo home runs, and the Twins finally busted out with a five-run inning at Wrigley Field. But Michael Pineda, even on a night in which he lacked his usual strikeout stuff, limited the Cubs to four hits in five innings, and the bullpen did th...

U.S. Open notebook: Patrick Reed could have ruined his own chances
MAMARONECK, N.Y. — Patrick Reed probably shot himself out of contention with a back nine 43 that left him 7-over for the day and tied for 11th place. He goes into Sunday eight shots out after having a three-shot lead through three holes of his third round.“Anyone in my position would be frustrated, especially with having the lead going into today,” he said.Still, he was able to muster a bit of gallows humor.“I got all my bad shots out of the way,” he said. “It was just one of those days. I couldn’t find a fairway, and from there trying to guess out of the rough all day, it was just hard. It wa...
