Hendricks keeps Reds in check as Cubs end 12-game skid, 2-1

CINCINNATI (AP) Kyle Hendricks’ 200th career appearance was especially satisfying for him and the skidding Chicago Cubs.

The 31-year-old right-hander not only became the first 14-game winner in the majors, but he helped the Cubs end a 12-game losing streak with six strong innings in a 2-1 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday night.

“It’s just cool to see everybody come in and execute and do their job and finally see the results,” said Hendricks, who made his first major league appearance on July 10, 2014, in the same Cincinnati ballpark. “It was nice.”

Hendricks (14-5) gave up three hits in six innings – the only big one a two-out homer by Nick Castellanos in the sixth – as Chicago won for the first time since Aug. 4 in Colorado. The Cubs are 3-15 since selling off their biggest stars at the trade deadline last month.

Chicago had lost 12 in a row for the first time since 2012.

Frank Schwindel had a run-scoring double for the Cubs in the third, his sixth straight game with an extra-base hit. Happ homered to right field leading off the sixth, one of his three hits.

“Kyle giving us the start that he did was huge,” manager David Ross said.

Cubs reliever Rowan Wick loaded the bases in the seventh but struck out Jonathan India before Adam Morgan came in from the bullpen and got Joey Votto to ground out.

Codi Heuer retired Cincinnati in order in the eighth and ninth for his second major league save and first this season.

“We had the top of our order in the seventh,” Reds manager David Bell said. “Those guys have come through time and time again. Give credit to the Cubs pitchers. They made pitches when they had to.”

Reds rookie Vladimir Gutierrez (8-4) gave up nine hits while striking out seven over 6 1/3 innings. He won his previous four starts.

“I felt pretty good about my outing,” Gutierrez said. “I feel confident with all of my pitches right now.”

Yanks overtake Red Sox for wild card with doubleheader sweep

NEW YORK (AP) It took the New York Yankees just over six weeks to erase a 10 1/2-game gap between them and the Boston Red Sox.

With roughly six more weeks left in the regular season, the longtime rivals are practically in a dead heat – although it sure feels like the Yankees are getting a running start going into the home stretch.

Luis Gil posted his third straight scoreless start to begin his career, Luke Voit and Giancarlo Stanton homered, and New York beat Boston 2-0 Tuesday night to sweep a doubleheader and move percentage points ahead of the Red Sox for an AL wild-card spot.

In the opener, Jonathan Loaisiga stranded the bases loaded in Boston’s final at-bat for a gutsy two-inning save after New York capitalized on a wild outing by Red Sox relievers for a 5-3 victory.

The Yankees have won five straight and 12 of 15 to narrowly overtake Boston for second in the AL East – New York is 68-52 and the Red Sox 69-53, a difference of .001 percentage points. The Yankees were 10 1/2 games behind first-place Boston on July 5 but have gone 26-11 since.

“It’s going to be a tough road ahead still, but the group is a confident group, and I think they know what they’re capable of,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said.

New York is in a playoff position for the first time since May 30.

“That’s a different team than early in the season,” Boston manager Alex Cora said. “They’re more agile, more versatile, more athletic and one thing they’ve done throughout the season is they can pitch.”

The Red Sox had seemingly snapped out of a 3-11 slump when they swept last-place Baltimore for three games over the weekend. Now, Boston is suddenly out of postseason position after leading the division for much of the season.

“It’s not deflating,” Cora said. “I mean, it’s two games, we lost, whatever.”

Gil allowed three hits and four walks and struck out four over 4 2/3 innings. He has yet to allow a run in 15 2/3 big league innings, the longest stretch to start a career by a Yankees pitcher since at least 1961, according to Elias. The previous best was Joba Chamberlain at 15 1/3 innings in 2007.

“That’s a big game out there,” Boone said. “Red Sox-Yankees in August, playing for a lot, and I thought he was unflappable.”

Gil is the only major league pitcher since at least 1901 with no runs allowed and 15 or more strikeouts through his first three games, according to YES Network.

“A lot of adrenaline tonight,” he said via translator.

The 23-year-old Gil – pronounced like “heel” – cruised into the fifth before allowing two singles and a walk. Wandy Peralta (4-2) relieved and retired Rafael Devers on an inning-ending fielder’s choice, preserving the 2-0 lead.

Boston had runners at first and third in the sixth with two outs when pinch-hitter Bobby Dalbec ripped a comebacker that appeared to hit Peralta in the shoulder. Peralta scrambled for the ball near the third-base line and fired to first just in time to retire Dalbec.

Chad Green closed out the ninth for his fifth save and second in two days.

Voit poked a 98 mph fastball from Nathan Eovaldi (10-8) over the wall in right for a solo homer in the second. It was Voit’s sixth homer of the season and second in three days.

The 2020 big league home run leader seemingly lost his job at first base when the Yankees acquired Anthony Rizzo from the Cubs on July 29, but he’s taken advantage of steady playing time with Rizzo on the COVID-19 injured list. Rizzo is expected back in the next couple of days.

“I was Top 10 MVP (voting) last year and I’ve been a great player for this organization for last three years,” Voit said. “I’m not going down. I want to play. Obviously, I know it’s going to be tougher with Rizzo, but I deserve to play just as much as he does.”

Asked about divvying up their playing time, Boone said, “We’re day by day, man.”

Stanton led off the fourth with his 19th home run.

Eovaldi worked five innings and was charged with two runs, seven hits and a walk with six strikeouts.

Soler, Riley send surging Braves past Marlins 2-0

MIAMI (AP) Jorge Soler snapped a scoreless tie with a two-out RBI single in the eighth inning, and the Atlanta Braves beat the Miami Marlins 2-0 Tuesday night.

Pinch-hitter Abraham Almonte drew a one-out walk against Miami starter Sandy Alcantara, stole second and advanced to third on a wild pitch. Soler fought back from an 0-2 count and hit an opposite-field line drive to right that scored Almonte.

“In that at-bat, I tried to stay calm because I was a bit anxious,” Soler said. “I let it come to me.”

Austin Riley hit his 26th homer, a solo blast off Marlins reliever Anthony Bender in the ninth. Freddie Freeman had two hits for the NL East-leading Braves, who won their fifth straight and 12th in 14 games. Atlanta also has won nine straight road games

Chris Martin (2-3) got the win by pitching a scoreless seventh. Luke Jackson followed with a scoreless eighth, and Will Smith got his 26th save with a perfect ninth.

“There are some really good things that happened in that game,” Braves manager Brian Snitker said. “That’s a good baseball game. Solid.”

Alcantara (7-11) was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the eighth. The right-hander allowed one run and five hits, with seven strike outs and one walk.

“Sandy was electric out of the gate,” Marlins manager Don Mattingly said. “He had a really good breaking ball, pounding the strike zone, getting the ball where he wanted it to be. He was on the attack. He was forcing them to swing the bat. He was really good.”

In his two last home starts, Alcantara has yielded three runs in 15 innings, while the Marlins scored once.

“That’s tough, I can’t do anything about it,” Alcantara said. “I just have to keep my head up, do my job and keep pitching.”

Braves starter Huascar Ynoa and Alcantara matched scoreless innings through the first five. Ynoa limited Miami to two base runners, while Alcantara kept the Braves from reaching scoring position.

Atlanta had the first threat in the sixth. Ynoa reached on a leadoff infield single, advanced on a groundout and reached third on Freeman’s two-out single to left. Alcantara retired Riley on a inning-ending force-out.

Miami loaded the bases in the bottom half, but failed to score. Alcantara reached on a fielder’s choice and advanced on Miguel Rojas’ single that chased Ynoa. Isan Diaz singled off Tyler Matzek before the reliever retired Lewis Brinson on a pop out and struck out Jesus Sanchez.

Ynoa returned from a three-month stint on the injured list and allowed three hits, struck out four and walked one in 5 1/3 innings. The 23-year-old Ynoa broke his pitching hand, slamming it on the dugout bench in frustration after he was removed from an outing against Milwaukee May 16.

“It was a good outing, what matters most is to help the team win,” Ynoa said.

Beaty leads Dodgers past Pirates 4-3 for 5th straight win

LOS ANGELES (AP) Matt Beaty hit a tiebreaking, two-run double with two outs in the fifth inning to lead the Los Angeles Dodgers past the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-3 on Tuesday night.

The Dodgers extended their franchise-record winning streak to 15 games against the Pirates. Los Angeles has won five in a row and 10 of 12 overall, but still hasn’t gained any ground on NL West-leading San Francisco, which holds a four-game lead over the defending World Series champions.

“We’ve got to continue to play good baseball. I still really don’t feel like we’ve played our best baseball,” Dodgers starter David Price said. “Can’t really worry about what the Giants are doing. We need to keep our foot on the gas.”

The Pirates dropped their fourth in a row and have lost 14 of 16.

The LA bullpen turned in another stellar effort, with Corey Knebel (2-0), Phil Bickford and Blake Treinen combining for two hits allowed in 3 1/3 scoreless innings.

“They’ve all been available and whenever they’re out there, they’re down in the strike zone and not walking guys,” said Price, who has worked out of the bullpen at times this season. “They’ve been really good for us for quite a while now.”

Kenley Jansen gave up a run in the ninth, when the Pirates had the potential tying run at second. But then Jansen retired the final two batters to finish off his 25th save.

“It’s frustrating because of the fact that you don’t finish it,” Pirates manager Derek Shelton said.

Price set down his first seven batters in his 10th start of the season. He allowed two runs and three hits in 4 2/3 innings, struck out three and walked one.

“It just seems like when he’s out there, we just don’t play our best defense,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said.

After homering in eight of their last nine games, the Dodgers played small ball. They had five doubles, including a pair by Corey Seager.

Beaty threaded a double down the right-field line off Cody Ponce (0-3), giving the Dodgers a 4-2 lead. Seager led off with a ground-rule double and two outs later, AJ Pollock walked to set up Beaty.

Los Angeles took a two-run lead on Pollock’s single to shallow center field in the third.

The Pirates tied it at 2 in the fourth. Bryan Reynolds doubled to deep center, scoring Ke’Bryan Hayes from first. Reynolds scored when Jacob Stallings grounded into a fielder’s choice to third, and Stallings was safe at second on Gavin Lux’s first error of the game. Lux’s throw skipped behind the plate, forcing catcher Will Smith to reach into the path of Reynolds.

“Reynolds smoked some balls and we don’t get anything for that,” Shelton said. “Sometimes that’s just how baseball goes and tonight it went their way.”

Lux, activated off the injured list Tuesday, committed his second error with two outs in the fifth. He fielded a ball hit by Kevin Newman near the third-base line and airmailed the throw to first, allowing the Pirates to extend the inning.

“He’ll flush it,” Beaty said of Lux. “He’s a great defender, he’s going to be just fine.”

Big Max: Embiid signs $196 million extension with 76ers

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Joel Embiid has deep into the decade to try and win his first NBA championship with Philadelphia. Another big-money deal locked up, the All-Star nicknamed “The Process” wants to end his career a Sixers lifer.

The 76ers kept their trust in Embiid and signed the 7-footer to a multiyear contract that a person familiar with the situation said was a four-year, $196 million extension, taking him through the 2026-27 season.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press because specific terms of the deal announced Tuesday were not made public.

“There’s no place like PHILADELPHIA!!! Excited to continue working towards bringing a title home and eventually retire here (hash)PHILLY,” Embiid wrote on social media.

His new deal will start in 2023-24. Embiid and the 76ers signed a $148 million, five-year extension that kicked in with the 2018-19 season.

The 27-year-old Embiid was NBA MVP runner-up this season to Denver’s Nikola Jokic, making him eligible for the supermax contract extension. Embiid led the Sixers to the best regular-season record in the Eastern Conference. Under coach Doc Rivers, the Sixers lost in the second round to the Atlanta Hawks.

The Sixers tweeted a photo of Embiid and team owner Josh Harris with the contract that said, “(at)joelembiid isn’t going anywhere.”

“Joel is the definition of elite – a role model in our community and a true MVP-caliber superstar on the court,” Harris said. “Since he was drafted in 2014, his rare blend of skills, charisma and leadership has transformed this franchise. We couldn’t be more grateful and excited to continue watching him in a 76ers uniform.”

Embiid, the No. 3 overall pick out of Kansas in the 2014 draft, shook off more injuries and averaged 28.5 points and 10.6 rebounds last season. He tore cartilage in his right knee during the playoffs but played through the injury and was unstoppable at times in the post. He scored 36 points in 28 minutes in a Game 3 first-round win over Washington. He followed that up with 39 points in Game 1 and 40 in Game 2 in the East semis. Embiid was 11 of 21 and scored 31 points in Philadelphia’s Game 7 home loss to the Hawks.

AP Source: Jamal Adams, Seahawks agree on contract extension

RENTON, Wash. (AP) The Seattle Seahawks and Jamal Adams reached agreement on a contract extension Tuesday that is expected to make the former All-Pro the highest-paid safety in the NFL, according to a person with knowledge of the deal.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because the team had not announced the deal. NFL Network first reported the agreement, which is for four years and is expected to include $38 million guaranteed and be worth up to $70 million.

Adams had been “holding in” since the start of training camp while waiting for a new deal to get done with his rookie contract set to expire after this season. Adams had been attending meetings but had yet to participate in on-field activities.

Adams, 25, was acquired in a massive trade from the New York Jets last summer, a deal that cost Seattle two first-round picks. When the trade was made, Seattle seemed determined to find a way to keep Adams around longer than two years. While there was talk about using the franchise tag, a long-term deal was always the best route for Seattle from a salary cap perspective.

Adams had a mixed first season with the Seahawks. He thrived as a pass rusher, setting an NFL record for sacks by a defensive back with 9 1/2. But he struggled at times in coverage and suffered significant hand and shoulder injuries that limited him as the season progressed.

Adams appeared in 12 regular-season games and finished with 83 tackles and one forced fumble. He was an All-Pro selection in 2019 with the Jets.

Tim Tebow’s comeback story ends with Jaguars cutting him

ACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Tim Tebow’s NFL comeback is over.

The Jacksonville Jaguars waived Tebow on Tuesday, parting with the 2007 Heisman Trophy winner who switched from quarterback to tight end in hopes of rejuvenating his pro football career.

“We knew that was an uphill battle for Tim,” coach Urban Meyer said. “Players loved him, locker room loved him, but it was the right thing (to do).”

Tebow’s blocking ranged from awkward to awful in Jacksonville’s preseason opener against Cleveland on his 34th birthday. He failed to record a catch Saturday night and played no snaps on special teams.

Meyer said Tebow’s play lacked consistency, especially in tackling. And if Tebow were going to make Jacksonville’s 53-man roster, he needed to be a special teams contributor.

“He has a bunch of good plays but can’t have a bad play at that position,” said Meyer, who spoke to Tebow about his decision Monday night and again Tuesday morning.

Meyer said he expected this to be the end of the road for Tebow’s playing career.

“I would guess it is,” Meyer said. “We didn’t get that deep with it. Obviously he’s his own man, elite warrior, elite competitor. But he’s also 34 years old.”

Tebow was shielded from the media circus that followed him during other NFL stops and never publicly addressed his return after nine years away from the game. He responded on Twitter and thanked the Jaguars for a chance.

“Thankful for the highs and even the lows, the opportunities, and the setbacks,” Tebow wrote. “I’ve never wanted to make decisions out of fear of failure and I’m grateful for the chance to have pursued a dream.”

Tebow opened training camp as Jacksonville’s fourth- or fifth-string tight end after switching positions this year. He was trying to return to the NFL after spending the previous five years in the New York Mets’ organization. He hit .223 with 18 home runs and 107 RBIs while never making it to the big leagues.

He asked Meyer for a tryout after retiring from baseball in January. Meyer obliged and ended up giving him a one-year contract worth $920,000, the minimum for a player with three accrued NFL seasons. The low-risk deal includes no guaranteed money, so Tebow had to make the team to earn a dime.

And that was always the uncertain part. Jacksonville entered camp with three tight ends essentially locked into roster spots: run-blocking specialist Chris Manhertz, fellow veteran James O’Shaughnessy and fifth-round draft pick Luke Farrell.

It quickly became clear that Tebow was less of a pass-catching option than Tyler Davis, a sixth-round selection in 2020, and second-year pro Ben Ellefson.

And his lack of experience and prowess on special teams made Meyer’s decision a relatively easy one.

“It’s special teams,” Meyer said. “This whole roster management is really critical as we journey here through the next two weeks. Two of the special teams phases are tackling, and he’s never tackled. … We expect to be very good on special teams. Tight end and tailback, if you can’t contribute on special teams, that’s a tough go.”

Denver selected Tebow in the first round in 2010. He led the Broncos to a playoff victory in his second season, but never developed the consistency to be a dependable NFL quarterback. He also failed to stick with the New York Jets, New England and Philadelphia.

The Jaguars also waived cornerback DJ Daniel, placed defensive tackle Daniel Ross on injured reserve and waived/injured receivers Josh Imatorbhebhe and Tim Jones.

COLTS WAVE FIVE PLAYERS

The waived tight end Graham Adomitis and running back Darius Anderson, placed defensive end Damontre Moore on the injured reserve list, and waived-injured wide receiver Quartney Davis and cornerback Nick Nelson.

INDY ELEVEN

INDIANAPOLIS (Tuesday, August 17, 2021) – Veteran midfielder Nicky Law is the fourth member of Indiana’s Team to be named to the USL Championship Team of the Week presented by Cleer Audio this season, earning the honor for his impressive display in Indy Eleven’s 2-1 home win against OKC Energy FC last Saturday.

The Plymouth, England native earned his placement on the TOTW after a masterful offensive display that helped snap Indy’s six-game home winless streak at IUPUI Michael A. Carroll Stadium. Law, 33, netted his second goal of the season in the 26th minute after slipping behind Energy FC’s backline to accept a pass from forward Manuel Arteaga, taking a touch before chipping the ball over goalkeeper C.J. Cochran to open the evening’s scoring. After a first-half concession that leveled the score at 1-1, Law reversed his role to assist for the game-winner in the 53rd minute, lobbing a back-post cross that Arteaga nodded on a near-angle over the goal line.

Since his arrival stateside form English Football League Two’s Exeter City FC in January, Law has become one of the team’s most consistent distributors, leading the Boys in Blue in passes (851) and passing accuracy (88.1%). Law’s connectivity was on full display last Saturday, having completed 36 of his 40 passes, three of which put his teammates in a goal scoring position.

Law is the first member of the Boys in Blue to be selected to the league’s Best XI since Week 10, when defender Neveal Hackshaw earned his first nod of the year for a goal and assist in Indy’s 3-3 stunner at Louisville City FC. Forwards Jordan Hamilton and Gordon Wild were the first two members of Indiana’s Team to make TOTW appearances this season with back-to-back placements in Weeks 5 and 6, while goalkeeper Bobby Edwards and defender A.J. Cochran earned “honorable mentions” in Week 9 and Week 2, respectively. The Championship’s Player of the Week is selected by the USL National Media Panel, which is made up of representatives from each media market in the Championship.

Next up, Indiana’s Team will take its second Wednesday-Sunday road trip of August beginning with a midweek match against Loudoun United FC tomorrow evening at Segra Field in suburban Washington D.C. (7:00 p.m. kickoff, live on ESPN+). From there, the Boys in Blue head west for its second meeting of the season at Children’s Mercy Park against Sporting KC II (5:00 p.m. kickoff, live on ESPN+).

Indy Eleven comes back home again on August 28, with the first of four straight Saturday nights at Carroll Stadium against Real Monarchs SLC. First kick on Bob Ross Night at “The Mike” is set for 7:00 p.m., and the limited number of tickets remaining can be secured by visiting  indyeleven.com/tickets or by calling 371-685-1100 during regular business hours.

Bucks stay home for Christmas, Hawks return to holiday slate

(AP) — The Milwaukee Bucks are staying home for Christmas, which is becoming an annual perk for reigning NBA champions.

The NBA released the schedule for the Dec. 25 quintupleheader on Tuesday, and the Bucks will play host to the Boston Celtics in the second of the day’s games. It marks the eighth consecutive season in which the reigning champion has gotten to play at home for the holiday.

Also set for Christmas this year: Atlanta opens the day at New York, Golden State visits reigning Western Conference champion Phoenix, Brooklyn plays at the Los Angeles Lakers, and Denver goes to Utah in the day’s finale.

The full season schedule will be released Friday afternoon, the NBA said. The league is returning to an 82-game season after playing a 72-game slate last season because of the pandemic, and it is expected that the Toronto Raptors – who spent last season playing home games in Tampa, Florida – will be allowed to play in their home city again this season.

Atlanta’s Christmas game will be its first since 1989, ending what was the longest drought in the NBA among franchises with at least one Christmas appearance. Charlotte and Memphis have yet to play on the holiday.

For Lakers star LeBron James, though, Christmas appearances are just about an annual occurrence. And this year’s matchup will likely be of the history-making variety.

If James plays in the Dec. 25 game against the Nets, it would be his 16th Christmas appearance and tie Kobe Bryant for the most in NBA history. If James starts that game, he would break a tie with Bryant for most Christmas starts; Bryant came off the bench once. If James scores more than 12 points, he will also pass Bryant for the most Christmas points; Bryant has 395, James 383. And should the Lakers win, James would become the first player to appear in 11 Christmas victories, breaking a tie with Dwyane Wade.

The Bucks, Lakers, Celtics, Nets, Warriors and Nuggets all played on Christmas last season. Utah and New York return for the first time since 2018, and Phoenix is getting its first Christmas game since 2009.

OPENING WEEK

The NBA also released the schedule of nationally televised games for opening week, and this season will begin where last season ended – in Milwaukee, with the Bucks celebrating a championship.

Ring night in Milwaukee, as expected, is Oct. 17, when the Bucks will open the season against Brooklyn and with NBA Commissioner Adam Silver expected to be in attendance, as per tradition, to hand out the jewelry. Milwaukee won a Game 7 in the Eastern Conference semifinals on the Nets’ home floor during its run to its first championship in 50 years.

The other game on the slate for Oct. 17 has Golden State playing at the Lakers.

The nationally televised games on Oct. 18 are Boston at New York and Denver at Phoenix. On Oct. 19, it’ll be Dallas at Atlanta and the Los Angeles Clippers visiting Golden State. And the national doubleheader on Oct. 20 has Brooklyn visiting Philadelphia and Phoenix playing at the Lakers.
