AP HEADLINES:

 

The Milwaukee Bucks lost the first three games of the Eastern Conference semifinals, then lost the NBA’s MVP while trying to fend off elimination.

No problem.

The Bucks aren’t done yet.

Even with Giannis Antetokounmpo missing most of the game with a sprained right ankle, the Bucks extended their season to a Game 5 on Tuesday. Khris Middleton scored 21 of his 36 points in the third quarter, then made a huge 3-pointer with 6.3 seconds left in overtime and the Bucks topped the Miami Heat 118-115 in Game 4 of their series Sunday.

“Just keep fighting,” said Middleton, who also had eight rebounds and eight assists. “That’s all my teammates did.”

Miami still leads the series 3-1 but will surely spend the next two days lamenting how this one got away. The Heat gave up 12 straight points in the final period Sunday, wasting what was an eight-point lead in a closeout game.

Bam Adebayo had 26 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists for Miami. Duncan Robinson scored 20 points, Jae Crowder had 18 and Goran Dragic and Jimmy Butler each finished with 17 for the Heat.

Antetokounmpo scored 19 points for the Bucks in only 11 minutes, while Brook Lopez and George Hill each had 14 for Milwaukee.

Miami managed only two points in the first 4:30 of overtime, got within one on a 3-pointer from Tyler Herro, but Middleton delivered the biggest shot of the night to make it 116-112.

Herro made another 3-pointer with 3.0 seconds left, but Middleton sealed it with a pair of free throws.

Antetokounmpo had 19 of Milwaukee’s first 30 points, shooting 8-for-10 from the floor. But in an instant, everything changed for the Bucks.

 

The Los Angeles Lakers were on a wild ride at Disney.

A huge lead in the first half had turned into a two-point deficit after three quarters. If they didn’t turn things around, the No. 1 seeds would be down 2-0, though Anthony Davis said they weren’t thinking about that.

“Our mindset was, `How do we win this game?'” he said.

Having LeBron James take over usually does the trick.

James had 28 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists, Davis added 34 points and 10 rebounds and the Lakers evened the Western Conference semifinals by beating the Houston Rockets 117-109 on Sunday night.

Markieff Morris scored 16 points for the Lakers. They opened a 21-point lead in the first half, gave up 41 points in the third quarter to fall behind, and then regrouped behind some high-flying plays by James to pull away again.

“We’re at our best when he’s in attack mode,” Lakers coach Frank Vogel said.

James took only 15 shots in Game 1 and was scoreless in the fourth quarter of the Lakers’ 112-97 loss, saying afterward that the Lakers needed to experience a game to understand how fast the small-ball Rockets play.

“I think we adjusted from Game 1 to Game 2,” James said.

And when the Rockets adjusted from the first half to the second, James was dominant on both ends in the final period. He had eight points in the quarter and a powerful blocked shot on Russell Westbrook that flew far out of bounds.

James Harden scored 27 points and Eric Gordon made six 3-pointers and added 24 for the Rockets, who made 22 3-pointers. P.J. Tucker had 18 points and Robert Covington 17, but Westbrook finished only 4 for 15 while scoring 10 points and grabbing 13 rebounds.

 

 

Two days after they and the Vegas Golden Knights each won a hard-fought Game 7 to move on, the Dallas Stars figured there might be an emotional letdown at the start of the Western Conference final.

They filled that void with hit after hit, got one early goal and played the trademark lockdown style that made them one of the best defensive teams in the NHL during the regular season. The result was a hard-hitting 1-0 victory in Game 1 on Sunday night that served notice to Vegas that a spot in the Stanley Cup final won’t come easily.

“We were skating, we were on top of them, we were creating a lot of offense from good play, good defensive structure all over the ice,” coach Rick Bowness said. “That’s Dallas Stars’ hockey.”

That brand of hockey worked especially well after John Klingberg scored on the Stars’ first shot 2:36 in and with goaltender Anton Khudobin locked in. Khudobin’s rebound control was excellent in stopping all 25 Vegas shots he faced on the way to his first shutout in the Stanley Cup playoffs.

“It’s always goes to your career record,” said Khudobin, who entered this year without a postseason start on that record. “At the same time, most of it, I’m happy with the win.”

The recipe for this win was a barrage of hits. In true Stars fashion, the game had almost double the amount of total hits (96) than shots on goal (50).

 

 

Hall of Famer Lou Brock, one of baseball’s signature leadoff hitters and base stealers who helped the St. Louis Cardinals win three pennants and two World Series titles in the 1960s, has died. He was 81.

Dick Zitzmann, Brock’s longtime agent and friend, confirmed Brock’s death on Sunday, but he said he couldn’t provide any details. The Cardinals and Cubs also observed a moment of silence in the outfielder’s memory before their game at Wrigley Field.

Brock lost a leg from diabetes in recent years and was diagnosed with cancer in 2017.

“Over my 25-plus years of being his agent, he was perhaps the happiest Hall of Famer I’ve ever encountered,” Zitzmann said.

“I think he led a life that will never be duplicated,” he said.

The man later nicknamed the Running Redbird and the Base Burglar arrived in St. Louis in June 1964, swapped from the Cubs for pitcher Ernie Broglio in what became one of baseball’s most lopsided trades.

Brock stole 938 bases in his career, including 118 in 1974 – both of those were big league records until they were broken by Rickey Henderson.

Brock’s death came after Hall of Fame pitcher Tom Seaver died Monday. Brock and Seaver faced each other 157 times, the most prolific matchup for both of them in their careers.

Along with starter Bob Gibson and center fielder Curt Flood, Brock was an anchor for St. Louis as its combination of speed, defense and pitching made it a top team in the ’60s and a symbol of the National League’s more aggressive style at the time in comparison to the American League.

The Cards were World Series champions in 1964 and 1967 and lost to the Detroit Tigers in seven games in 1968. Opposing teams were warned to keep Brock off base, especially in the low-scoring years of 1967-68 when a single run often could win a game. But the speedy left fielder with the popup slide was a consistent base-stealing champion and run producer.

 

 

Erik Gonzalez’s sacrifice fly capped a two-run ninth inning as the Pittsburgh Pirates rallied to beat the Cincinnati Reds 3-2 on Sunday.

Josh Bell and Ke’Bryan Hayes began the winning rally with singles off Raisel Iglesias (2-3). Bell then scored the tying run on Cole Tucker’s single.

One out later, Gonzalez lined out to right field and Tucker easily beat Nick Castellanos’ off-target throw.

“I went up there just thinking I’m trying to look at the ball first, and I know if it’s a strike then I’m going to swing,” Gonzalez said.

Gonzalez has worked his way into becoming the everyday shortstop and leadoff hitter and is batting .289. He spent the first five seasons of his career as a bench player.

“We talk about taking advantage of opportunities, about the meritocracy of playing time and he deserves to play,” Pittsburgh manager Derek Shelton said. “He’s been our best player. He’s been outstanding.”

Richard Rodriguez (1-2) pitched a scoreless ninth for the win. He was one of five relievers that held the Reds scoreless over the final six innings, following Geoff Hartlieb, Sam Howard, Chris Stratton and Nik Turley.

The Pirates bullpen was riddled by injuries earlier in the season and closer Keone Kela remains sidelined by right forearm tightness.

 

 

Paul Goldschmidt’s drive got up and just kept going, soaring out of a windy Wrigley Field on Sunday night.

When it landed, St. Louis was well on its way to another big win in Chicago.

Goldschmidt hit a three-run homer off a struggling Jon Lester, and the Cardinals gained ground in the NL Central race with a 7-3 victory over the Cubs.

St. Louis pulled within 1 1/2 games of Chicago with its third consecutive win over the division leaders, sweeping a doubleheader on Saturday after the Cubs won 4-1 in the series opener Friday night. The longtime rivals have one game left in their pandemic-shortened season series on Monday.

“We’re always taking care of our business and we put our head down and we play regardless of where we are,” manager Mike Shildt said. “I think we’ve proven that, and that’s a good trait for a group.”

Tommy Edman also homered for the Cardinals, and Harrison Bader had three hits. Dakota Hudson (2-2) worked five innings of three-run ball, shrugging off a shaky start.

Chicago dropped to 10-15 since its 13-3 start. Anthony Rizzo and Jason Kipnis homered for the Cubs, but Lester (2-2) lasted just 3 1/3 innings in another lackluster performance.

 

 

Shane Bieber threw some typically nasty strikes. He was most impressed with the one Indians third baseman Jose Ramirez fired.

“I’ve watched it probably like 50 times already,” Beiber said. “It was unbelievable.”

Cleveland’s ace struck out 10 in five innings to remain unbeaten in 2020, Carlos Santana had two RBIs and Ramirez made a jaw-dropping defensive play to lead the Indians to a 4-1 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday.

Bieber (7-0) only allowed one run and five singles, but the Brewers were patient at the plate and made the right-hander run up his pitch count – 58 combined in the fourth and fifth innings – before needing Cleveland’s bullpen to finish things off.

Brad Hand, the Indians’ fourth reliever, worked the ninth for his 11th save in 11 tries. It was his 100th career save.

 

 

Edwin Encarnacion hit a three-run homer, Dallas Keuchel threw five scoreless innings and the Chicago White Sox beat the Kansas City Royals 8-2 on Sunday to complete a four-game sweep.

Keuchel (6-2) left the game with lower back stiffness after throwing a few warmup pitches before the sixth inning. He threw 49 pitches, allowed two hits and struck out two.

“He irritated it a little bit,” White Sox manager Rick Renteria said. “It didn’t make sense to keep him going. So we had to make the move there. Right now he’s day to day. He’s been managing it the whole season.”

The AL Central-leading White Sox went ahead 5-0 in the seventh inning against reliever Josh Staumont. Encarnacion hit a 448-foot blast into the second deck of the fountains beyond the wall in left-center to score Yasmani Grandal and Jose Abreu, who had singled to extend his hitting streak to 20 games.

“He continues to chip away and that’s what he does,” Renteria said of Encarnacion. “He got a pitch he could handle and put it in the water. He’s a professional. I don’t have to worry about Edwin. He’s going to continue to do what he does.”

Royals starter Matt Harvey (0-3) was yanked after throwing 40 pitches. He went 2 1/3 innings, allowing four hits and one run.

“I thought Matt did what we needed him to do,” Royals manager Mike Matheny said.

Tim Anderson had three hits for the White Sox.

Yolmer Sanchez, making his second start of the season, led off the third inning with a double to left-center and scored on a single by Grandal.

“It feels really good. When you have the opportunity when the guys need a day off, you have to do your best,” Sanchez said. “I don’t try to do too much. I think I had a really good plan today in the box.”

 

 

Jacob deGrom brought his A-game and got ample help from Mets teammates in a clash against another NL East ace.

Philadelphia never really gave Aaron Nola a chance.

DeGrom struck out 12 over seven innings, Nola was let down by lackluster defense and New York poured it on with a season-best 17 hits in a 14-1 victory over the Phillies on Sunday.

Pete Alonso homered twice, Jeff McNeil hit his first shot of the season, and Brandon Nimmo and Wilson Ramos also went deep for the Mets, who have won four of five. Dominic Smith had a career-high four hits, matched a franchise record with three doubles and drove in three.

DeGrom (3-1) allowed three hits and two walks while lowering his ERA to 1.69. With three weeks left in this pandemic-shortened regular season, the two-time reigning NL Cy Young Award winner is a prime candidate for a three-peat in a field that also features the Cubs’ Yu Darvish and Braves’ Max Fried.

“I’ve said that almost every year coming in, that’s a personal goal of mine,” deGrom said. “Winning two in a row, honestly, doesn’t even really feel like it’s sunk in yet. … I prepared this offseason and this summer with that goal in mind.”

Brad Brach and Chasen Shreve closed out New York’s four-hitter.

McNeil and Alonso connected off Nola, but the rest of New York’s damage against the Phillies ace was aided by defensive miscues.

 

 

NFL Kick-off Weekend

Five teams enter the 2019 season with a new head coach – MATT RHULE in Carolina, KEVIN STEFANSKI in Cleveland, MIKE MCCARTHY in Dallas, JOE JUDGE with the New York Giants and RON RIVERA in Washington. • Five rookie head coaches have led their teams to the playoffs over the last three seasons: MATT LAFLEUR (Green Bay) in 2019, MATT NAGY (Chicago) and FRANK REICH (Indianapolis) in 2018, and SEAN MCVAY (L.A. Rams) and SEAN MCDERMOTT (Buffalo) in 2017. • Four quarterbacks – LSU’s JOE BURROW (No. 1 overall, Cincinnati), Alabama’s TUA TAGOVAILOA (No. 5, Miami), Oregon’s JUSTIN HERBERT (No. 6, L.A. Chargers) and Utah State’s JORDAN LOVE (No. 26, Green Bay) – were selected in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft. At least one rookie quarterbacks has started in Week 1 in 12 consecutive seasons, the longest streak in the NFL since at least 1950. • Several notable players were on the move during the offseason, including quarterbacks TOM BRADY (Tampa Bay) and PHILIP RIVERS (Indianapolis); running backs MELVIN GORDON (Denver) and TODD GURLEY (Atlanta); wide receivers STEFON DIGGS (Buffalo) and DEANDRE HOPKINS (Arizona); tight ends AUSTIN HOOPER (Cleveland) and JASON WITTEN (Las Vegas); offensive linemen BRIAN BULAGA (L.A. Chargers), JACK CONKLIN (Cleveland) and RUSSELL OKUNG (Carolina); defensive end CALAIS CAMBELL (Baltimore); defensive tackles DEFOREST BUCKNER (Indianapolis) and JURELL CASEY (Denver); linebackers CORY LITTLETON (Las Vegas) and KYLE VAN NOY (Miami); cornerbacks BYRON JONES (Miami) and DARIUS SLAY (Philadelphia); and safeties HA HA CLINTON-DIX (Dallas) and MALCOLM JENKINS (New Orleans).

NFL cut-down day has come and gone. Once the clock struck four back east, each team had to be down to their 53-man rosters. It’s in this that a lot of shocking moves were announced throughout the league.

From the Cowboys and Raiders releasing big-name free-agent signings before they have even played a game with their new teams to a couple young former top-10 picks being given their walking papers, here are the most surprising moves of the week.

Ha Ha Clinton Dix, safety, Dallas Cowboys

Signed to a one-year, $3.75 million deal during the spring, this former Green Bay Packers first-round pick and Pro Bowler was set to be the Cowboys starting safety next to Xavier Woods. For whatever reason, it did not pan out. Dallas released Clinton Dix this week and will be relying on a combination of Darian Thompson and Luther King to hold down the starting free safety position moving forward.

 

Lamar Miller, running back, New England Patriots

A former Pro Bowler dating back to his days with the Houston Texans, Miller signed with New England this past spring after missing the entire 2019 campaign with a torn ACL. The expectation was that the former fourth-round pick would push Sony Michel for the starting job. Instead, Miller was jettisoned from New England before even playing a game. He last suited up for the Texans in 2018, recording 1,136 total yards en route to earning a Pro Bowl appearance.

 

Hakeem Butler, wide receiver, Arizona Cardinals

A fourth-round pick out of Iowa State last year, Butler missed his entire rookie season due to an injury. Apparently, he did not do enough to impress head coach Kliff Kingsbury and Co. during training camp. Arizona shockingly moved on from the talented 6-foot-5 Butler this week. The dude was a legit star for the Cyclones, catching 60 passes for 1,318 yards and nine touchdowns as a junior back in 2018. He should latch on with another team here soon.

 

Sidney Jones, cornerback, Philadelphia Eagles

A former star at Washington, Jones would have likely been a top-15 pick in the 2017 NFL Draft if he had not suffered a torn Achilles during the program’s pro day that spring. Instead, Jones fell to the Philadelphia Eagles with the 43rd pick. Still only 24 years old, he was released on Saturday. Despite dealing with injury concerns throughout his three-year NFL career, this qualifies as a surprising move. Jones recorded 23 tackles eight passes defended and two interceptions in 12 games a season ago.

 

Adrian Peterson, running back, Washington Football Team

Pretty much the most-shocking news of the week, Washington’s brass came to the conclusion that Peterson did not have much more to offer the team. That’s surprising in that the future Hall of Fame running back put up north of 1,000 total yards in each of his two seasons in the nation’s capital. Peterson, 35, has already drawn a lot of interest on the open market. As for Washington, it will be relying on veteran Peyton Barber and talented rookie Antonio Gibson following the release of both Peterson and Derrius Guice.

 

Todd Davis, linebacker, Denver Broncos

A full-time starting inside linebacker for Denver over the past four seasons, it was shocking to learn that the team had decided to release him on Friday. Davis, 28, has played at a near Pro Bowl level each of these past four seasons, recording a combined 427 tackles, 18 tackles for loss and 11 passes defended. Look for him to latch on with a team in the near future.

 

Mohamed Sanu, wide receiver, New England Patriots

This will go down as one of the worst trades in Patriots franchise history. It was last October that Bill Belichick and Co. dealt a second-round pick to the Atlanta Falcons for Sanu. The veteran proceeded to put up 207 yards in eight games. That in and of itself proves this was a lopsided trade. Then, in shocking fashion, New England released Sanu this week. A total of 26 receptions for a pick that ultimately ended up being stud running back J.K. Dobbins. Ouch!

 

Damarious Randall, safety, Las Vegas Raiders

Yet antother former first-round pick of the Packers, Randall inked a one-year, $1.5 million contract with Las Vegas during the spring. He will not appear in a single game in the desert metropolis after being released this week. It’s a stunning move in that the defensive back is coming off a two-year stretch with the Cleveland Browns that saw him record 146 tackles, 15 passes defended and four interceptions.

 

Josh Rosen quarterback, Miami Dolphins

After seeking out trade partners for this former top-10 pick throughout the week, Miami released Rosen Friday evening. This comes after the Fins traded a second-round pick to the Arizona Cardinals for Rosen during the 2019 NFL Draft. To be clear, it is a shocking move even with Ryan Fitzpatrick slated to start this season and with rookie first-round pick Tua Tagovailoa seemingly completely healthy.

 

Leonard Fournette, running back, Jacksonville Jaguars

Talk about a major fall from grace in Duval. It was just this past season that the former No. 4 overall pick tallied 1,674 total yards for the Jaguars. After months of looking to trade the stud young back, Jacksonville shocklingly decided to waive him erlier in the week. Fournette was almost immediately signed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after clearing waivers — a clear indication that other teams are higher on him than Jacksonville.

Adrian Peterson has agreed to a one-year contract with the Detroit Lions, a person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press.

The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity Sunday because the agreement had not been announced. The 35-year-old Peterson was released by Washington on Friday after spending the past two seasons there. He has rushed for 14,216 yards in 13 seasons, mostly with the Minnesota Vikings.

ESPN and the NFL Network also reported the deal.

Peterson is 1,053 yards behind Lions great Barry Sanders for fourth on the career rushing list. At this stage of his career, Peterson may need his workload managed. He did rush for 1,940 yards and 12 touchdowns over two seasons with Washington, playing in 31 games and rebounding nicely after a one-season stop in Arizona.

The days when Sanders roamed the Detroit backfield are long gone. The Lions have struggled recently to develop a consistent running game. Kerryon Johnson showed promise but has dealt with injury problems. He led the team last season with only 403 yards rushing.

Peterson’s 898 yards in 2019 would have led the Lions in any of the past six seasons.

Sanders was quick to welcome Peterson on Twitter.

“So excited to see (at)Adrian Peterson coming to the (at)Lions – It will be great to have you in town,” Sanders tweeted.

Johnson also seemed excited about the news.

“If i were to take a picture with him would that be fan boying too much??” he said on his Twitter account.

The Lions open the season against Chicago next weekend. They face Washington on Nov. 15.

 

 

Jadeveon Clowney made clear for months he wanted to be with a team that can win a Super Bowl, and he’s finally made his choice even if he didn’t get the long-term deal in the process.

The Tennessee Titans announced Sunday they agreed to terms with the three-time Pro Bowl linebacker on a one-year contract. The Titans did not announce the terms Sunday. But ESPN.com reported the deal could be worth up to $15 million.

The Titans also shared on Twitter photos of Clowney next to a plane with controlling owner Amy Adams Strunk.

The No. 1 overall pick of 2014, Clowney went into free agency looking for a mega-contract that never came calling. The pandemic shut down travel for physicals, and Clowney didn’t visit anyone once the NFL allowed free agents to meet teams in person.

That was despite having reported interest from Seattle, Tennessee, Cleveland, Baltimore, Philadelphia and New Orleans.

The Titans never hid their interest in the 6-foot-5, 255-pound Clowney.

On Thursday, several players started lobbying the pass rusher on Twitter, including three-time Pro Bowl left tackle Taylor Lewan, who noted Clowney’s big bowl highlight at Lewan’s expense with Michigan. Lewan wrote Thursday: “We can do this to other people’s teams now.”

“We have an offer out to JD, and we’ve talked to both him and his agent,” Titans coach Mike Vrabel said Friday when talking to reporters.

Now Clowney joins a team that lost the AFC championship game in January and the coach whom the linebacker had his best season with when Vrabel was Houston’s defensive coordinator in 2017.

 

 

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch says starting receiver Deebo Samuel “has a shot” to play in the season opener after being sidelined all summer by a broken foot.

Samuel broke his foot in June during informal workouts with teammates in Tennessee and hasn’t been able to practice since. The 49ers activated him from the non-football injury list on Saturday as part of the roster cut down.

Lynch said Sunday that the team will get together with doctors and training staff on Tuesday to determine the plan for Samuel ahead of the opener next Sunday against Arizona.

“Deebo has done a fantastic job,” Lynch said. “We got to see how hard Deebo was working. I’m a huge believer that when you get injured and you’re already in great shape, you tend to heal quicker. Deebo has continued that tremendous work ethic and has remained very positive and upbeat and resolute in his want to be back on the field right away. That goes a long way. We’re hopeful but I don’t have an answer, because we don’t know it yet.”

Samuel caught 57 passes for 802 yards and three TDs last season and also made big contributions in the running game. He had 14 carries for 159 yards and three scores.

Samuel then made a big impact in the postseason with 10 catches for 127 yards and six runs for 102 yards in three games. He had five catches for 39 yards and three carries for 53 yards in San Francisco’s 31-20 loss to Kansas City in the Super Bowl.

The 49ers also signed their 16-player practice squad Sunday that included two former top 10 draft picks to their practice squad.

The Niners signed receiver Kevin White and defensive end Dion Jordan to the expanded squad. White was picked seventh overall by Chicago in 2015 and Jordan went third to Miami in 2013. Both players failed to live up to that billing, but could have a shot this year with the 49ers.

 

 

Chicago Bears coach Matt Nagy saw a different version of Mitchell Trubisky than he has in the past.

The explanation Nagy offered Sunday for selecting Trubisky over Nick Foles in the Bears’ quarterback competition had more to do with Trubisky’s strides as a quarterback than any disadvantage Foles faced from a lack of offseason work in the team’s offense because of the league’s COVID-19 restrictions.

“In the end, Mitch won the job and I think that’s very important for him, for us, for everybody, to understand, that he worked really hard to get to this point,” Nagy sad. “We know that we all, in a lot of different areas, struggled in 2019.

“And so what I think was most impressive, from the end of the season until this past weekend, was to be able to see some of the growth in practice and off the field that Mitch had.”

Nagy confirmed an ESPN report from Friday and on Sunday selected Trubisky his starting quarterback for this season.

Foles had come over in a trade for a fourth-round draft pick with Jacksonville after Trubisky struggled last year and saw his passer rating decline from 95.4 to 83.0. The decision comes after an offseason when Trubisky’s fifth-year contract option was declined by the Bears.

Neither of those situations seemed to deter Trubisky.

“I’m a believer that everything happens for a reason one way or another,” Trubisky said. “So them not picking up my option, bringing in competition, I truly believe it was just a part of my journey and something I had to deal with in order to get better.

 

 

There was no doubt which of his two Darlington Raceway victories this year Kevin Harvick enjoyed more.

“The first thing I want to say is, `Welcome back fans! This is a hell of a lot more fun with you guys up there,'” he told the crowd Saturday night.

Harvick had a large smile as he waved to the 8,000 or so fans – the May 17 event here was run without spectators due to the coronavirus pandemic – and even gave the checkered flag to a young fan wearing one of his shirts.

Harvick had reason to be happy, taking the Southern 500 when leaders Chase Elliott and Martin Truex Jr. bumped as Truex tried to make a pass and both brushed the wall.

Harvick was there to take advantage – and begin NASCAR’s playoff the best way possible.

Harvick, the 2014 series champion, was widely considered a favorite to be racing for a title this season. His eighth win this year put him into the second round.

“It was way better” getting out of the car and hearing a fan reaction, Harvick said. “It felt really good to have fans cheering.”

Especially after what they witnessed down the stretch at the track “Too Tough to Tame.”

Elliott and Truex had the most speed throughout – Truex won the first two stages – and were once again dueling for lead. Once they touched and hit the wall, things opened up for Harvick, who suddenly found himself out front.

Elliott dropped off the pace and Harvick passed him for second. Truex – who led a race-high 196 laps – had to pit for repairs on his damaged car, giving Harvick a clear path to the finish.

“The leaders got tangled up there and the next thing you know we were racing for the win,” Harvick said. “This is one of the most prestigious races in our sport and obviously everybody in our sport knows the history that Darlington has for our sport, so anytime you can win here is pretty special.”

Harvick’s May victory at Darlington came in NASCAR’s return after a 10-week pause at the start of the pandemic. When he won that race without spectators, he pointed into the television camera and told the fans how much they were missed.

It was difficult to imagine the win going to anyone other than Truex or Elliott, who combined to lead 310 of 367 laps.

But as Truex tried to complete a pass for first, he clipped Elliott’s front side and both slid up into the wall.

“Just not enough room there for both of us,” Truex said about the botched pass for the lead. “I thought I had enough of a run to clear him. I think it was close, obviously. I thought I had enough momentum and distance on him that he was going to let me in there.”

Harvick had to hold off a hard-charging Austin Dillon, a driver few predict will advance very far into the playoffs, to seal the victory in his Ford for Stewart-Haas Racing.

 

 

Novak Djokovic was kicked out of the U.S. Open for accidentally hitting a line judge in the throat with a tennis ball after dropping a game in his fourth-round match Sunday, a stunning end to his 29-match winning streak and bid for an 18th Grand Slam title.

As he walked to the Arthur Ashe Stadium sideline for a changeover, trailing Pablo Carreno Busta 6-5 in the first set, Djokovic – who was seeded and ranked No. 1 and an overwhelming favorite for the championship – angrily smacked a ball behind him. The ball flew right at the line judge, who dropped to her knees at the back of the court and reached for her neck.

During a discussion of about 10 minutes near the net involving chair umpire Aurelie Tourte, tournament referee Soeren Friemel and Grand Slam supervisor Andreas Egli, Djokovic appeared to be pleading his case. But eventually, he walked over to shake hands with Carreno Busta.

Tourte then announced that Djokovic was defaulted, the tennis equivalent of an ejection.

“I was a little bit in shock, no?” Carreno Busta said later at a news conference done via video conference.

Djokovic quickly left the tournament grounds without speaking to reporters, posting an apology on social media hours later.

“This whole situation has left me really sad and empty. I checked on the lines person and the tournament told me that thank God she is feeling ok. I`m extremely sorry to have caused her such stress. So unintended. So wrong,” Djokovic wrote.

“As for the disqualification, I need to go back within and work on my disappointment and turn this all into a lesson for my growth and evolution as a player and human being,” he wrote. “I apologize to the (at)us open tournament and everyone associated for my behavior.”

 

 

Tampa Bay Lightning coach Jon Cooper ruled out captain Steven Stamkos from playing in the Eastern Conference finals series against the New York Islanders.

“He’s not available. He didn’t skate today. Not going to play in the series,” Cooper said during the team’s Zoom call on Sunday, a day before the series opener.

Cooper did not provide any other details on Stamkos, who has been out since having surgery for a core muscle injury on March 2.

Stamkos spent the coronavirus pandemic-sparked pause recuperating, and got back on the ice before aggravating the injury during voluntary workouts. He’s not played since logging 12 1/2 minutes of ice time in a 4-3 loss to Toronto on Feb. 25.

In July, Stamkos was optimistic he would be ready for the start of the playoffs.

“I’ve been progressing. … Definitely the best I felt was today on the ice, so another step forward,” he said.

“There was a stretch where for four or five weeks when I was skating. I was feeling really good, then kind of hit a little rut,” Stamkos said, noting the setback was related to his injury. “Certainly feeling a lot better now. Chalk it up to the ups and downs of going through a rehab, especially a rehab in these times where it was difficult to navigate.”

Stamkos ranked second on the team with 29 goals and 66 points in 57 games before being sidelined.

The No. 1 pick in the 2008 draft is a five-time 40-goal scorer. He has topped 20 goals in each of his 12 seasons except for 2016-17, where he only played 17 games after tearing a knee ligament.

Cooper also ruled out defenseman Jan Rutta, who has not played since Aug. 5.

 

 

Dustin Johnson started with the lead, matched the low round Sunday at the Tour Championship with a 6-under 64 and now is one round away from capturing the FedEx Cup and its $15 million prize.

Johnson missed only three fairways and putted for birdie on all but three holes. It led to a five-shot lead over Justin Thomas and Xander Schauffele going into the Labor Day finish at East Lake.

“He’s showcased what he can do,” Schauffele said. “If he does what he normally does, it’s going to be almost impossible to catch him.”

No one was playing better going into the FedEx Cup finale and Johnson has shown no signs of slowing. He was at 19-under par, his fourth consecutive event holding at least a share of the 54-hole lead.

He converted one of those into an 11-shot victory two weeks ago at the TPC Boston. He lost to a 65 by Collin Morikawa in the PGA Championship and to a 65-foot putt in a playoff by Jon Rahm last week at Olympia Fields.

Now only four players have a reasonable chance of catching him.

Schauffele, a big-game player who won the Tour Championship three years ago, dropped only one shot on the front nine and finished with a 10-foot birdie putt for a 67 that puts him in the final group with Johnson.

Thomas missed a 16-inch par putt on the 10th hole that he careless went ot tap in, bounced back with a 25-foot birdie putt on the toughest par 3 at East Lake and make two more birdies coming for a 66.

They were at 14 under.

“DJ is clearly playing well. It wasn’t easy today,” Thomas said. “It’s still East Lake. But anything can happen around this course. You can shoot 63 or 64 and you can shoot 73 or 74 very easily. I just need to hope that tomorrow is my 63 or 64.”

Jon Rahm played bogey-free, but only a pair of birdies at the end made it feel like a better day with his 66. He was six shots behind, while Morikawa rallied with five birdies on the back nine to salvage a rough start for a 67. He was seven behind.

Daniel Berger also had a 64, but he made up no ground on Johnson was remained nine behind. Also at 10-under was Sungjae Im, who played in the final group with Johnson and must have wondered what hit him. Im shot 72.

The FedEx Cup has been on Johnson’s mind ever since he squandered a great chance to win it in 2016. He went into the final round that year tied for the lead and then couldn’t find a fairway, closing with a 73. He still had a chance to win the FedEx Cup when it was based on points. Only one player could have beaten him that day and it was Rory McIlroy, who holed a shot from the fairway on the 16th for eagle and then won in a three-way playoff.

McIlroy won’t be in the mix this year. He had to birdie the par-5 18th for a 70 and was 11 shots behind.

 

 

TODAY IN BASEBALL HISTORY

1896       The first-place Orioles (NL) sweep a tripleheader against the cellar-dwelling Colonels, 4-3, 9-8, and 12-1. Baltimore will establish the record for most games won in two consecutive days with five when they take both ends of tomorrow’s twin bill with Louisville.

1896       New Britain, CT native Tom Lynch becomes the first major league umpire to work in over 1,000 games. The National League arbitrator, who becomes the president of the circuit in 1910, will be behind home plate in 1309 of 1325 of the games he will work.

1903       A year before the first subway line is completed, the Brooklyn Superbas, later to be known as the Dodgers, play their crosstown rivals in a two-stadium, same-day doubleheader. The first game played in Washington Park begins at 10:30 am with 9,300 fans watching the visiting Giants win the opener, 6-4, and later that afternoon in front of 23,623 patrons at the Polo Grounds in Manhattan, Brooklyn wins the second game, 3-0.

1908       In the span of four days, Senators’ sensation Walter Johnson throws his third consecutive shutout against the Highlanders at Hilltop Park. The ‘Big Train’s’ two-hit performance in the first game of the Monday Labor Day doubleheader follows a six-hit blanking on Friday, and a four hitter with no runs on Saturday.

1911       Cy Young loses a pitching duel to Phillies’ rookie right-hander Grover Cleveland Alexander at Boston’s South End Grounds, 1-0. Next month, the 44 year-old veteran Braves hurler will end his career after 22 seasons with an astonishing 511 victories, a major league record unlikely to be broken.

1913       In an effort to beat the impending inclement weather, Galveston, playing host to San Antonio, finishes the regular season with a 49 minute game, a 4-0 victory by the hometown Pirates, who manage to compile 13 hits during the brief Texas League contest. The players are encouraged to play the game at a rapid pace by the teams owners, who want to avoid having to give the fans rain checks for games next year.

1914       The Braves play their first ‘home’ games at Fenway Park, splitting a doubleheader with the Giants at the Red Sox’s ballpark. The change in venues, which will include all the remaining games in the regular season and World Series contests, is necessitated when the Boston’s South End Grounds proves to be too small to accommodate the growing crowds following the ‘Miracle Braves’.

1916       The Giants defeat the Dodgers 4-1 to start their major league record 26-game winning streak. The ‘Jints’ start the span two games under .500 and make up nine games in the standings, but remain in fourth place during the entire streak.

1923       Red Sox starter Howard Ehmke no-hits the A’s at Shibe Park, 4-0. In the seventh inning, the 29 year-old right-hander appears to lose his bid for a no-hitter when Slim Harriss hits a would-be double, but the Philadelphia pitcher is called out for not touching first base.

1935       Red Sox infielder Joe Cronin hits into a 5-6-4-3 game-ending triple play when his line drive caroms off Indian third baseman Odell Hale’s head to Bill Knickerbocker. The Tribe’s shortstop starts the triple killing throwing the rebound to Roy Hughes covering second, who in turn relays the ball to first baseman Hal Trosky, giving Cleveland a 5-3 victory in the first game of a twin bill at Fenway Park.

1942       Cleveland Buckeye backstop Buster Brown and pitcher Smoky Owens are killed almost immediately, and three of their teammates along with the team’s general manager are seriously injured when a truck slams into the rear of their car. The fatal accident occurred at 3 a.m. in Geneva, Ohio as the Negro American League team was traveling to Akron after having played a twin bill against the Black Yankees in Buffalo.

1950       At Detroit’s Briggs Stadium, Tiger outfielder Hoot Evers hits for the cycle, collecting five hits, 13 total bases, and six RBIs. The left fielder’s tenth-inning single completes the accomplishment, and is part of a two-run rally that ties the game at 13-13 before the game is called due to darkness.

1952       At Washington’s Griffith Stadium, Johnny Mize pinch-hits a grand slam, giving the Yankees a 5-1 victory over the Senators. The ‘Big Cat’ has now homered in all fifteen major league ballparks presently in use, with Sportsman’s Park in St. Louis being used as the home for both the Cardinals and Browns.

1955       In the Yankees’ 2-1 win over the A’s, Whitey Ford becomes the fifth big league pitcher to throw consecutive one-hitters. In his last start, ‘Slick’ held the Senators hitless, with the exception of a seventh inning bloop by Carlos Paula.

1962       With four steals in a 10-1 loss to the Pirates, Dodger Maury Wills breaks the modern National League record for stolen bases in a season with his 82nd swipe. Cincinnati’s Bob Bescher established the mark in 1911, playing left field with Cincinnati.

1964       At Connie Mack Stadium, a Labor Day crowd of 26,390 fans watches the first-place Phillies split a doubleheader with the Dodgers. The attendance for the twin bill brings the season’s total to 1,224,172 patrons, breaking the all-time franchise home attendance record established by the Whiz Kids in 1950.

1967       With just three weeks left in the season, the standings at the end of the day will reveal a four-way tie for first place in the American League. The Red Sox (79-62), the eventual AL champs, are battling the White Sox (78-61), Tigers (79-62), and the Twins (78-61) to capture the flag in the historic pennant race.

1967       At Candlestick Park, the Giants tie a National League mark, using a record 25 players to beat the Astros in 15 innings, 3-2. Manager Herman Franks uses all his starters and five relief pitchers, sends six pinch-hitters to the plate, and three players enter the contest as pinch-runners, along with two defensive substitutions.

1968       Jerry Koosman, who sets a new franchise mark for victories, getting his 17th win of the season when the Mets beat Pittsburgh at Forbes Field, 4-3. The rookie southpaw, en route to a 19-12 record (.613), breaks the team record established by Tom Seaver last year.

1968       Heading toward home plate with the winning run in the bottom of the ninth, Hank Aaron falls down and is tagged out by Houston’s third baseman Doug Rader. The last-place Astros come back for an improbable 6-3 victory over the Braves when they score three runs in the top of the tenth frame.

1969       Donald Dubois wins $27,000 when Fred Talbot, the Pilots’ starting pitcher who throws a three-hit shutout, hits a grand slam in the sixth inning of the team’s 8-0 victory over California at Sick’s Stadium. The Gladstone, Oregon native’s good fortune is the result of participating in the expansion team’s “Home Run for the Money” promotion.

1973       To prevent an injury, the second game of the Mets-Expos doubleheader at Jarry Park is delayed for 11 minutes. The setting sun over the rim of the Montreal ballpark makes it impossible for the first baseman to see the ball being thrown from certain positions on the field.

1973       “I want to cast my own vote in favor of returning major league baseball back to the nation’s capital. You can be sure all of us in the Washington metropolitan area would enthusiastically welcome a National League team.” – PRESIDENT RICHARD NIXON, text of a letter sent to NL president Chub Feeney supporting the return of major league baseball to the D.C.

Joseph Danzansky successfully urges President Nixon to write a letter to National League president Chub Feeney supporting the return of major league baseball back to the District of Columbia. The Washington, D.C. grocery-chain magnate, who has conditionally bought the Padres, sees his efforts to move the team to the nation’s capital thwarted by legal actions, which allows Ray Kroc to buy the Friars and keep the club in San Diego.

1973       The Rangers fire future Hall of Fame manager Whitey Herzog. The White Rat, who compiled a 47-91 record during his six-month tenure in the Texas dugout, will be replaced by Billy Martin.

1973       New York southpaw Jerry Koosman establishes a franchise mark with a streak of 31.2 consecutive scoreless innings before it is snapped when a run crosses the plate in the bottom of the third inning in the team’s 4-2 victory in Montreal. Although Dwight Gooden will pass the left-hander’s effort with 36.2 consecutive innings without giving up an earned run, Koosman’s record without allowing any runs will last for 39 years before it is surpassed by knuckleballer R. A. Dickey in 2012.

1974       Graig Nettles will be suspended for ten days after stuffing his bat with six super balls, that are collected by Tigers catcher Bill Freehan when the piece of lumber is shattered on a disallowed infield hit. The Yankee third baseman, who said the doctored bat was given to him by a fan in Chicago, hit a home run in his first at-bat for the game’s only run in the Yankees’ 1-0 victory over Detroit at Shea Stadium.

1975       With an 8-4 victory over the Giants at Riverfront Stadium, the Reds clinch the National League West in their 142nd game of the season. The ‘Big Red Machine’ captures a title earlier than any other club since the inception of divisional play in 1969.

1978       In a 9-4 victory over the Expos, Mets backstop John Stearns establishes a new mark for National League catchers with his 25th stolen base. Johnny Kling swiped 24 bases catching for the Cubs in 1902.

1993       In the nightcap of a doubleheader at Cincinnati, Cardinal outfielder Mark Whiten hits four home runs in one game, helping to tie two established RBI records.

1996       In a pregame ceremony in front of a sellout crowd at the Metrodome, the Twins bid farewell to Kirby Puckett, one of the team’s most popular players in recent years.

1996       With 129 at-bats and a mediocre .254 batting average at the start of his major league career, Scott Rolen misses the remainder of the season, when his arm is broken by a pitch thrown by Cubs right-hander Steve Trachsel.

2001       Shawn Green breaks a franchise record for homers in a season with his 44th home run, the first of his two dingers the Dodger right fielder will hit of Dustin Hermanson in the team’s 7-1 victory over the Cardinals at Busch Stadium.

2001       Ranger infielder Alex Rodriguez breaks his American League record (42 in 1998 and 1999 for the Mariners) for home runs by a shortstop with his 43rd long ball of the season. In 1958, Cub Hall of Famer Ernie Banks established the major league record for homers for that position with 47.

2005       Dontrelle Willis becomes the first pitcher in the thirteen-year history of the Marlins to win 20 games in a season when the team routs Washington at RFK Stadium, 12-1. The high-kicking southpaw had established a franchise record for victories in his last start with his 19th win.

2006       The Cubs are honored by the Commission on Chicago Landmarks for their preservation efforts at Wrigley Field.

2008       The Pirates lose their 82nd game, an 11-6 defeat to the Giants at AT&T Park, ensuring the club will endure their 16th consecutive losing season. The streak equals the mark established by the 1933-1948 Philadelphia Phillies for the longest skid in the history of professional sports.

2009       Thanks to their loss to Chicago, the Pirates become the first franchise in baseball history to post a losing record for 17 consecutive seasons. The dubious streak, which dates back to 1993, surpasses the skid the Phillies endured from 1933 to 1948.

2010       At Petco Park, Padres’ starter Mat Latos establishes a major league record when he limits L.A. to one run over seven innings. The 22 year-old right-hander has a string of 15 straight starts of five or more innings of allowing two or fewer runs, breaking the mark shared by Greg Maddux (1993-94) and Mike Scott (1986).

2010       A statue of Billy Williams, who played 16 seasons with the club from 1959-74, is dedicated by the Cubs on the corner of Sheffield Avenue and Addison Street outside of Wrigley Field.

2010       Trevor Hoffman earns his 600th save when he induces pinch-hitter Aaron Miles to hit a grounder for the final out in the Brewers’ 4-2 victory over St. Louis at Miller Park.

2015       In the last game of the season, Pensacola Blue Wahoos shortstop Ray Chang plays all nine positions, fielding a different one in each of the first nine innings, including tossing a clean ninth frame. The 32 year-old popular infielder also enjoys a 3-for-4 day at the plate, scoring a run and stealing a base in the Reds Double-A affiliate’s 4-2 loss against the Mobile BayBears.

2017       The Indians break a franchise record, set last season, with their 15th consecutive win, beating the White Sox at Chicago’s Guaranteed Rate Field, 11-2.
