    PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Rio Ruiz, Chance Sisco and Anthony Santander all homered to lead the Baltimore Orioles to a 5-4 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday night. Baltimore reliever Miguel Castro wiggled out a jam in the eighth thanks to a fantastic diving stop by Ruiz. Castro put runners on the corners with no outs but allowed only one run on Andrew Knapp’s RBI single that cut it to 5-4. With runners on the corners, former NL MVP Andrew McCutchen (batting just .189) hit a grounder that Ruiz snagged on a diving stop and his bouncing shovel pass to second ended the rally. Cole Sulser worked a scoreless ninth for his fourth save. The Orioles took the first two...

    Photo by Ashley Landis-Pool/Getty Images Austin Rivers dropped 41 points on Sunday. Raise your hands if you had Austin Rivers crossing the 40-point threshold in the NBA bubble. Now put back down any of those hands that popped up, you liars. Entering Sunday’s contest, the Sacramento Kings’ situation was already sad enough, dealing with injuries, Buddy Hield’s shooting woes and a team that looked like it’s been sleepwalking in Orlando. Thanks to the Portland Trail Blazers’ win behind 51 points from Damian Lillard hours earlier, the Kings had already been officially eliminated from playoff contention. But their outlook got even more depressing in Sunday’s contest against the Houston Rockets, when it wasn’t James Harden who ignited for 40-plus points, but Austin Rivers...

    By Sam Quinn (CBS SPORTS) – Few teams have been hit as hard by the coronavirus as the Denver Nuggets. Even now, two games into their bubble schedule, they are still without three starters.

The Denver Nuggets are still missing key players like Jamal Murray and Gary Harris in this NBA restart, but at the very least, one of their future franchise cornerstones in Michael Porter Jr. is looking good. In an overtime 121-113 victory against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday evening, the Nuggets rookie ignited for a career-high 37 points, far surpassing his previous career best of 25 points. Shooting 12-for-16 from the floor, 4-for-6 from 3-point range and a perfect 9-for-9 from the foul line, MPJ was an absolute flamethrower in every facet of the game. Porter also notched a double-double with 12 rebounds, chipped...

    NEW YORK (AP) — Rick Porcello was staggered in his New York Mets debut by Dansby Swanson and the Atlanta Braves. Swanson tied his career high with five RBIs, and the Braves chased an erratic Porcello during the third inning of a 14-1 blowout Sunday night. “This is a dream of mine since I was a kid,” Porcello said. “Makes it very disappointing today.” Porcello grew up in nearby Morristown, New Jersey, starred at Seton Hall Prep and was taken by Detroit 27th overall in the 2007 amateur draft. He won the AL Cy Young Award with Boston in 2016 and signed a $10 million, one-year deal with the Mets during the offseason to be able to pitch a one-hour...
    NEW YORK (AP) — Dansby Swanson tied his career high with five RBIs and the Atlanta Braves chased an erratic Rick Porcello during the third inning of his New York Mets debut in a 14-1 blowout Sunday night. Atlanta had 17 hits, 11 for extra bases, and took two of three in the season-opening series after losing 1-0 on Friday and coming within a strike of defeat Saturday before rallying. Porcello allowed seven runs and got just six outs. Swanson, Marcell Ozuna and Austin Riley all went deep against Corey Oswalt, who has allowed 18 home runs in 20 big league appearances. Riley’s drive went off the facade of the left-field upper deck and would have traveled 458 feet unimpeded,...
    Kareem Hunt, Cleveland Browns. (Photo by Kirk Irwin/Getty Images) Could Kareem Hunt set a career-high as a receiving back this season?The Cleveland Browns should have one of the most exciting offenses in the NFL this season. They seem to have two of everything on the offensive side of the ball, especially at running back. While third-year pro Nick Chubb is expected to be the Browns’ bell-cow back this fall, what are the chances Kareem Hunt takes on more of a receiving role in the Cleveland offense? The Fantasy Footballers investigate how Hunt can be best featured in Kevin Stefanski’s offense and contemplate if he’ll set a career-high with 55 receptions in his fourth year out of Toledo. We know under...
    Largely forgotten despite his incredible tally of gold medals, Ray Ewry began one of the greatest Olympic careers in history at the 1900 Paris Games. The American jumper excelled in three events and won 10 individual Olympic titles (or eight titles, depending on whose version of history you rely upon) around the turn of the century. All three of those events — the standing high jump, the standing long jump and the standing triple jump — have since been dropped from the games. Unlike the more commonly known jumping events, Ewry competed without a run-up. Standing motionless, athletes were measured on how high or far they could go from a flat-footed, stationary position. And Ewry was the best there was,...
    We always struggle with what to call this list. “Bust” is a bit of an unfair title, as these are all good players who can provide value if drafted lower than their current ADPs. As such, we lead toward “overrated” or “overvalued”, as we consider all to be a tier or two too high in the preseason reasons. Of course, we still label them “busts” because that’s what people actually search for when doing their pre-draft research, and if you want to add them to the “Do Not Draft” section on your cheat sheet, well, we can’t stop you.  The truth is, the real “busts” every year usually fall into that category because of injury. We can raise red flags...

    By RYAN QUINN, The Charleston Gazette-Mail CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Members of the Herbert Hoover High School Class of 2020 gathered on the morning of June 23 at Laidley Field to celebrate a final rite of passage of their high school life — graduation. After crossing a stage, they took their seats, spaced apart on the field on either side of the 50-yard-line. The senior slideshow was on the scoreboard, and some family in the bleachers wore masks. “You have had a nontraditional high school experience, to say the least,” Principal Mike Kelley said, above the sound of vehicles whizzing by on the interstate behind University of Charleston Stadium. “Yet, you have excelled.” Amid an ongoing global pandemic, with hugs...
    There are many players in the NBA who could have changed the course of their career if things hadn’t decelerated. One of them being, Derrick Rose who achieved his career-high 50 points after ten years into the league. It was an emotional moment for the man who went through a tough phase over the years. If you ask Derrick Rose about his most memorable moments in the NBA, this will probably top the charts. It was back in 2018-19 season when he had signed a one year contract with Minnesota Timberwolves. In a game against Utah Jazz, Rose stepped into the 50-point club for the first time. But why was this accolade an emotional moment for the 30-year old? Derrick’s...
