Thomas wins 2nd PGA title in playoff after 7-shot rally

TULSA, Okla. (AP) Justin Thomas didn’t pay attention to any score but his own Sunday in the PGA Championship, knowing he was seven shots behind but with only six players ahead of him on a Southern Hills course where anything could happen.

He never could have dreamed how it all played out, a chaotic final hour of pressure moments, clutch putts and unimaginable heartache for Mito Pereira.

Thomas hit a shank on the sixth hole. He made a 65-foot birdie putt that began his record-tying comeback. He missed a 10-foot birdie putt on the final hole that he feared would cost him. He never led until one hole remained in his three-hole aggregate playoff with Will Zalatoris.

And when Thomas tapped in for par to capture another PGA Championship title, he stood erect on the 18th green with a mixture of joy and disbelief.

“I was asked early in the week what lead is safe and I said, `No lead,'” Thomas said. “I can’t believe I found myself in a playoff.”

Thomas closed with a 3-under 67 that turned out to be enough for a playoff when Pereira, the 27-year-old from Chile in his first PGA Championship who never trailed all day, drove into a creek and made double bogey on the 18th hole to finish one shot behind.

It was the first time since Phil Mickelson at Winged Foot in the 2006 U.S. Open that a player gave away a one-shot lead on the final hole to lose a major.

“Sad to hit it in the water,” Pereira said. “I mean, I wish I could do it again.”

Just like his first PGA title at Quail Hollow in 2017, the signature shot for Thomas came on the 17th hole. It was the second hole of the aggregate playoff. He drilled a 3-wood on the 301-yard par 4 to 35 feet for a two-putt birdie, his first lead of the day.

Zalatoris, whose must-make 8-footers for birdie and par on the final two holes of regulation got him into the playoff with a 71, couldn’t deliver in overtime. His 8-foot birdie putt on the 17th in the playoff missed, and he couldn’t catch Thomas at the end.

Zalatoris looked like he had thrown away his chances for a first major – and first PGA Tour victory – when he three-putted from just outside 20 feet on the 16th hole. But he responded with a birdie from the bunker at the 17th and holed an 8-foot par putt on the 18th for a 71.

He joined Thomas at 5-under 275, and they played on when Pereira faltered.

Thomas, who had gone 14 months since his last victory at The Players Championship last year, now has a PGA Tour win in each of his last eight years and moves to No. 5 in the world.

His second major came when he least expected it.

None of the six players ahead of him had ever won a major. Thomas knew that. He was in the longest drought since his first PGA Tour title. He was aware of that, too.

“I remember how tough it is now to win, so I knew I was going to be nervous and I knew they’d be feeling the exact same thing,” Thomas said. “You just don’t know what’s going to happen.”

John Mahaffey in the 1978 PGA Championship at Oakmont was the other player to come from seven shots behind on the final day. He also won in a playoff over Tom Watson and Jerry Pate.

Thomas was still seven shots behind when he made his remarkable run, a mixture of key birdies and keeping mistakes off his card. It started with an improbable birdie putt from just short of the green to a back pin on the par-3 11th. He edged closer with an 18-foot birdie on the next hole.

He was lurking, while the leading pack behind him was leaking oil.

Zalatoris and Cameron Young each caught Pereira, ever so briefly. All of them found trouble in the rough and the sand and the greens.

Pereira was on the cusp of becoming Chile’s first major champion, and giving South America the career Grand Slam.

Even after five bogeys, he never lost the lead and delivered clutch par saves from the bunker left of the ninth green and from well behind the 10th green. None was bigger than his 12-foot putt on the 16th to stay one shot ahead.

It all came undone with one swing.

His sawed-off swing with the driver, so effective on the previous hole, peeled to the right and into the creek down the right side of the 18th fairway. After a penalty drop, his approach up the hill started left and never cut back, landing in the rough. His chip rolled off the back edge of the green.

His double bogey gave him a 75, a hard-luck end to such a promising week.

“On Monday, I just wanted to make the cut. On Sunday, I wanted to win,” Pereira said. “I’ll take this to learn for the future.”

Young, whose father is a longtime PGA professional, also will look back at missed chances. Playing with Zalatoris, a former roommate at Wake Forest, Young was in the mix all day and was briefly tied for the lead. His hopes ended on the 16th when he found a bunker right of the green, blasted out weakly to 30 feet and three-putted for a double bogey. He closed with a 71.

Rory McIlroy made a brief run with four straight birdies on the front nine, putting him at 4-under par for the tournament. He was 2 over the rest of the way and finished eighth.

In eight majors at Southern Hills, it was first time a player rallied from any margin to win, and it was only the second playoff. Retief Goosen won the other in the 2001 U.S. Open after he three-putted from 12 feet on the final hole. At least he got another chance, unlike Pereira.

Six of the seven previous major champions at Southern Hills are in the World Golf Hall of Fame. The 29-year-old Thomas, now with two majors among his 15 career PGA Tour victories, is surely headed there one day.

Wiggins, Warriors dunk Mavericks 109-100 for 3-0 series lead

DALLAS (AP) Stephen Curry shimmied for the TV crew, Andrew Wiggins shook Luka Doncic with a posterizing dunk and the Warriors are thinking sweep.

Curry scored 31 points, Wiggins’ playoff career high 27 points included the dunk that was originally called an offensive foul and Golden State beat the Dallas Mavericks 109-100 Sunday night for a 3-0 lead in the Western Conference finals.

“He’s looking like Dominique Wilkins out there,” Klay Thompson said of Wiggins after scoring 19 points as the Warriors moved to the brink of the NBA Finals, three years after the end of a five-year run that yielded three championships.

Golden State, which swept Portland in its most recent West finals in 2019 before Toronto won the title, goes for the sweep in Game 4 on Tuesday in Dallas. No team has rallied from 3-0 down to win an NBA playoff series.

“I love the position we’re in,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “I love the fact that our team came in and got the win tonight. This was the one we felt like we had to get. Coming here up 2-0, you’ve got to take advantage of your momentum.”

Doncic scored 40 and beat the first-quarter buzzer with a 32-footer that got the crowd going with the Mavericks again at home trailing 2-0, as they did against top-seeded Phoenix before winning the West semifinal series in seven games.

But that shimmy-inducing bucket from the young superstar was a blip on an otherwise rough night from 3-point range for the Mavericks, who missed their first seven and finished 13 of 45.

Reggie Bullock and Maxi Kleber, two long-range specialists for Dallas, missed all 12 of their 3s combined and were 0-15 overall. Both went scoreless, offsetting Spencer Dinwiddie’s 26 points off the bench. Jalen Brunson scored 20.

Wiggins’ one-handed dunk over Doncic midway through the fourth quarter was called a foul because his elbow made contact around Doncic’s neck as Doncic jerked backward and fell. But the replay ruling after Kerr challenged was incidental contact, giving Golden State a 93-83 lead.

“I got hit a little bit, but that was impressive,” Doncic said. “I’m not going to lie. I saw the video again, and I was like, `Oh …’ That was pretty incredible. I wish had those bunnies.”

About a minute later, Wiggins, who matched his playoff career high with 11 rebounds, moved quickly down the right baseline for a follow dunk on a miss by Curry.

“Just feeling the energy,” Wiggins said of his dunk over Doncic. “That’s the main thing when I seen the rim. That’s all I seen. They tried to take it away from me, but …” Wiggins said, interrupting himself with a laugh before thanking Kerr for the challenge.

Curry scored 11 points in the third quarter, giving the Warriors their biggest lead at 78-64 with a step-back 3 in the final minute and turning to the national TV crew for a close-up view of his shoulder shimmy.

Doncic scored 21 points in the fourth quarter as the Mavericks tried desperately to close the gap, but fell to 2-6 in his three playoff seasons when the 23-year-old, three-time All-Star scores at least 40 points.

One of Dinwiddie’s 3-pointers got Dallas within five points with 1:15 remaining, but Jordan Poole answered with one from the left wing just inside the final minute.

The Mavericks, playing past the first round since first-year coach Jason Kidd was the point on the Dirk Nowitzki-led team that won the 2011 title, lost a nine-point lead in the final four minutes of the first half two nights after failing to hold a 19-point lead on the road in a Game 2 loss.

“This is just the beginning of this journey,” Kidd said. “I know you guys have us winning the championship before the season started. And that’s a joke if you didn’t get it. This is a lot bigger than just this one game or this series. This is huge for our franchise because none of you guys had us here.”

WHAT JUST HAPPENED?

The most tense moment of the series came late in the first half after a corner 3 from Curry capped an 8-0 run that put the Warriors in front by a point and helped them to a 48-47 halftime lead. And it left Curry confused.

Curry ran the length of the court with his tongue hanging out after Dallas called timeout. As he circled back toward his bench, Curry walked by Doncic with teammate Juan Toscano-Anderson nearby.

Doncic appeared to take issue with something Toscano-Anderson said and started toward the Golden State bench before officials along with coaches and players from both teams intervened. Meantime, Draymond Green and injured Dallas guard Tim Hardaway Jr. exchanged unpleasantries about 45 feet apart.

After the timeout, Curry could been seen saying, “What happened?” and approached Doncic to talk about it. The exchange ended with Green as the peacemaker with Doncic.

HOLDING HIS TONGUE

Green got a technical foul, his second of the series, after an extended conversation with official Marc Davis when he was called for a backcourt violation when he hurriedly tried to step back over the midcourt line to catch a long, unexpected pass from Curry.

The crowd was howling for a technical and finally got it, after plenty of Twitter chatter following Game 2 on whether refs should have given him a second tech. Soon after, Green was called for his first foul and didn’t like the call. But he directed his complaint at his own bench instead of the officiating crew.

TIP-INS

Warriors: Otto Porter Jr., who averaged 10.5 points on 82% shooting the first two games, limped to the locker room in the first half and was ruled out with left foot soreness. … The Warriors extended their NBA record with a 26th consecutive series in which they won at least one road game.

Mavericks: Bullock won the Kareem Abdul-Jabbar social justice award. He has been active in the LGBTQ+ community. His sister, a transgender woman, was killed in 2014. Bullock worked with several organizations in the Dallas area after signing as a free agent in the offseason and has long been active in similar pursuits in his native North Carolina. … Dorian Finney-Smith got a technical early in the second half for an elbow to the back of Green after a made Dallas free throw.

Stamkos, Kucherov lead Lightning past Panthers 5-1 in Game 3

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) Steven Stamkos scored two goals and Nikita Kucherov had a goal and three assists and the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Florida Panthers 5-1 to move to the brink of another trip to the Eastern Conference final on Sunday.

Corey Perry and Erik Cernak also scored, and reigning Conn Smythe Trophy winner Andrei Vasilevskiy had 34 saves to help the two-time defending Stanley Cup champions take a commanding 3-0 series lead over the Panthers, who had the NHL’s best record during the regular season.

Game 4 is Monday night at Amalie Arena, where the Lightning have won three of four games this postseason. One more victory will send them to the Eastern Conference final for the sixth time in eight years.

Vasilevskiy allowed just one goal for the fourth straight game after allowing at least three in each of Tampa Bay’s first six games this postseason. He’s been helped in that dominating stretch, as his teammates in front of him have helped by playing excellent team defense.

Sam Reinhart scored Florida’s lone goal in Game 3, snapping a puzzling 0-for-25 start to the playoffs for the Panthers’ power play.

Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 31 of 34 shots, with Perry and Cernak both scoring only moments after Florida killed off penalties in the first and second periods. Stamkos’ one-timer off a pass from Kucherov made it 3-1 midway through the second.

Kucherov and Stamkos added empty-net goals in the final four minutes after the Panthers removed Bobrovsky in favor of an extra attacker.

Perry, who signed with Tampa Bay as a free agent after being part of teams that lost to the Lightning in each of the past two Stanley Cup Finals, re-directed Ryan McDonagh’s shot past Bobrovsky to get the defending champs an early lead.

The Panthers, 0-for-25 on the power play through their first nine playoff games, finally broke through to tie it 1-all with Jonathan Huberdeau and Aleksander Barkov setting up Reinhart to beat Vasilevskiy from in front of the net.

Ultimately, though, Florida paid for its inability to capitalize on other opportunities.

Barkov just missed answering Cernak’s goal that put the Lightning ahead 2-1, sending a shot from the right circle off the post. The Panthers also narrowly missed pulling even during a second-period power play that produced several chances, including Huberdeau’s wide-open look that McDonagh deflected up over the net with his stick.

Florida finished 1-for-3, dropping to 1-for-28 in man-advantage situations this postseason.

NOTES: With his 50th career playoff goal, Perry moved ahead of Brad Marchant and Patrick Bergeron into sole possession of sixth place among active career playoff goal leaders. … The Lightning are 9-0 in best-of-seven series in which they’ve won the first two games, including last year’s first-round victory over the Panthers. … Lightning C Brayden Point missed his third consecutive game because of a lower body injury suffered during Tampa Bay’s Game 7 victory over Toronto in the first round.

Zibanejad leads Rangers to 3-1 win over Hurricanes in Game 3

NEW YORK (AP) After two tough losses on the road put them in another series deficit, the New York Rangers again bounced back with a big home win.

Mika Zibanejad had a goal and an assist, Igor Shesterkin stopped 43 shots, and the Rangers beat the Carolina Hurricanes 3-1 Sunday in Game 3 of their second-round playoff series.

“It was a tight battle again,” Rangers coach Gerard Gallant said. “Igor was outstanding for us, and that was they key. … We defended pretty good and guys did the right thing with the puck.”

Chris Kreider and Tyler Motte also scored as the Rangers cut their deficit to 2-1 in the best-of-seven matchup. Game 4 is Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden.

“It’s a terrific environment … so much energy throughout the entire game,” Kreider said. “It’s easy to feed off the energy the crowd brings.”

It was just New York’s second win against Carolina in the teams’ last 10 meetings, dating to the qualifying round of the 2020 playoffs in the bubble in Toronto. The Hurricanes swept that best-of-five series in three games and won three of four in the regular season.

The Rangers, who came back from a 3-1 series deficit in the first round against Pittsburgh, improved to 4-1 at home. They got a much-needed win against the Hurricanes after losing 2-1 in OT in Game 1 and 2-0 in Game 2.

“I liked the way we battled in those two games in Carolina,” Gallant said. “We felt like we were going to win the hockey game. Our goalie was outstanding in the first half of the game and made some big key saves for us. I thought we played well enough to win.”

Nino Niederreiter scored for Carolina, and Antti Raanta finished with 30 saves. The Hurricanes, 6-0 at home, dropped to 0-4 on the road this postseason.

“We definitely had our opportunities to win,” Carolina coach Rod Brind’Amour said. “It felt good the way we were going. We couldn’t get pucks through the net.”

The Hurricanes were 0 for 3 on the power play, falling to 0 for 7 in this series. The Rangers were 1 for 2 and are now 1 for 7.

“We have to find a way just to bear down when we have the chances,” Niederreiter said. “Our penalty-kill is, for the most part, terrific. The power play, we just can’t seem to find a way to get a goal.”

Shesterkin had 17 saves in the first period, 17 in the second and nine in the third.

“They were really just trying to shoot from everywhere, feel out the game,” Shesterkin said through an interpreter. “But none of those shots were really that dangerous.”

The Rangers had a 2-on-1 breakaway 5 1/2 minutes into the third period, but Ryan Reaves’ shot from the right side was stopped by Raanta. Motte, who started raising his arms in anticipation of a goal, couldn’t corral the rebound.

Raanta then made a stellar save to deny Kaapo Kakko’s attempt from the right side three minutes later to keep it a one-goal game.

The Hurricanes pulled Raanta for an extra skater with 2 1/2 minutes to go. Less than 30 seconds later, Kreider missed a chance at the empty net, but Motte sealed it with a backhander from the defensive zone with 1:23 remaining.

Kreider pushed the Rangers’ lead to 2-0 as he got the puck from Zibanejad behind the Hurricanes’ net, brought it around to Raanta’s right, and fired a shot past the goalie top shelf from the left circle at 5:55 of the second. It was Kreider’s sixth of the postseason.

Niederreiter got the Hurricanes on the scoreboard 8:18 into the second as he brought the puck up the right side and put a backhander past Shesterkin for his fourth of the playoffs. It was a harmless-looking shot that got past the goalie.

“You miss a goal, you get a little disappointed for a second, you say a few mean words and you forget about it,” said Shesterkin, who improved to 7-1 this year when facing 40 or more shots, including 3-1 in the postseason. His lone loss in such games was Game 1 of the first round against Pittsburgh, when he faced 83 shots in a 4-3 loss in triple overtime.

Zibanejad opened the scoring with the Rangers’ first power-play goal of the series. He got a pass from Artemi Panarin and fired a shot from the left circle past Raanta with 8:06 left in the first for his fourth of the postseason. It was New York’s first goal since early in the first period of Game 1.

SHUFFLING LINES

Looking for a spark, Gallant shuffled lines to start the game. Andrew Copp opened centering a line with Kakko and Frank Vatrano. The second line in was Filip Chytil centering Kreider and Zibanejad. Panarin centered a line with Alexis Lafreniere and Ryan Strome. The fourth line was Kevin Rooney, Motte and Reaves.

Gallant went back to the team’s usual lines to start the third period.

CLIMBING

Kreider’s goal gave him 47 career postseason points, tying Ron Duguay for ninth place in franchise history.

Kane’s 2nd-period hat trick helps Oilers top Flames 4-1

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) Evander Kane had three goals in a six-minute span in the second period, Leon Draisaitl set an NHL record with four assists in one playoff period and the Edmonton Oilers defeated the Calgary Flames 4-1 on Sunday night to take a 2-1 lead in their second-round playoff series.

Zach Hyman had the other goal for Edmonton and Connor McDavid had three more assists. Mike Smith, who was briefly replaced by Mikko Koskinen in the third period after getting run over by Milan Lucic, made 31 saves. Koskinen wasn’t forced to make a stop in just over four minutes.

Oliver Kylington scored the lone goal for Calgary. Jacob Markstrom allowed four goals on 34 shots before getting pulled for the Flames, who have been outscored 8-1 since taking a 3-1 lead in the second period of Game 2. Dan Vladar made seven saves in relief.

McDavid now has 23 points (six goals, 17 assists) through 10 postseason games. The only players in NHL playoff history with more points in the same span are Wayne Gretzky (29 in 1983; 25 in 1985), Mario Lemieux (25 in 1992) and Rick Middleton (23 in 1983).

The Oilers will look to take a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven series Tuesday night at Edmonton.

In the first playoff meeting in Edmonton to feature the Oilers and Flames since April 14, 1991, the Oilers scored four goals in just over 12 minutes in the second period – including Kane’s second hat trick of the month.

Hyman opened the scoring 52 seconds into the period off a setup from Draisaitl and McDavid for his sixth goal of the postseason.

Kane, who signed with the Oilers in January after having his contract terminated by the San Jose Sharks following a string of off-ice incidents, scored his first of the night at 6:58 off a feed from Draisaitl.

Kane made it 3-0 just 53 seconds later after an impressive rush by McDavid after stepping past Calgary defenseman Noah Hanifin.

Kane completed his hat trick – the seventh-fastest in NHL postseason history – with his 10th goal of the playoffs at 12:58 on a 2-on-1 with McDavid.

The 30-year-old Kane is the third Edmonton player to score three straight goals in a postseason game, joining Gretzky (1983) and Petr Kilma (1991). Draisaitl’s fourth assist of the second period, meanwhile, set the playoff record for any period.

Markstrom, who allowed 11 combined goals in Games 1 and 2 after posting a .941 save percentage in the opening round against the Dallas Stars, got the hook in favor of Vladar to start the third.

Lucic ran over Smith behind the Oilers’ net midway through the third to kick off a melee involving all 10 skaters. The Edmonton netminder was subsequently removed in favor of Koskinen, but returned shortly later.

Kylington got a consolation goal for the visitors – his first of the playoffs – with under five minutes to go.

Votto hits tiebreaking HR in 8th, Reds beat Blue Jays 3-2

TORONTO (AP) Joey Votto hit a tiebreaking homer in the eighth inning and the Cincinnati Reds held on to beat the Toronto Blue Jays 3-2 on Sunday, avoiding a three-game sweep.

Votto, who is from suburban Toronto, went deep for the fourth time in 12 career games at Rogers Centre.

The one-out solo drive to right field off Yimi Garcia (0-3) was Votto’s first home run of the season, and his third extra-base hit in three games since being activated off the injured list following a bout with COVID-19.

“Of course it’s great to be back here,” Votto said. “Playing in this city has great meaning to me, but I’m so locked in on performing well that, whether it’s here or elsewhere, I’m dialed in on making sure I perform well.”

Red manager David Bell said he “couldn’t be happier” to see Votto come up big north of the border.

“Being around him every day, I know how meaningful it is for him to do good things here in his hometown, but also how important it is for him to be a great player, to be a contributing player and to help us win a game,” Bell said.

The one-run win was the second of the season for the Reds. Cincinnati has won nine of 15 following a 3-22 start.

Toronto failed to complete a sweep after winning the first two games of a series for the fourth time this season and the second time this homestand. The Blue Jays dropped last Wednesday’s series finale to Seattle after victories Monday and Tuesday.

Toronto is 22-19 but has scored 147 runs, ahead of only last-place Baltimore (140) in the AL East.

“The positive is we have been winning games without our offense being where it was expected to be,” manager Charlie Montoyo said.

Alexis Diaz (2-0) worked two scoreless innings and Art Warren finished for his second save in four chances.

Making his major league debut in place of right-hander Connor Overton (back), Reds right-hander Graham Ashcraft allowed two runs and four hits in 4 1/3 innings. He walked two and struck out three.

Ashcraft’s first pitch was his hardest of the day, a 99.7 mph strike to George Springer.

“That definitely gave me a little `All right, you’re good, just do your thing,'” Ashcraft said. “It for sure helped a lot.”

Blue Jays left-hander Yusei Kikuchi walked three of the first four batters he faced, and five of the first seven Reds reached safely to begin the game, with Cincinnati taking a 2-0 lead on Aristides Aquino’s two-run double. Kikuchi escaped his second bases-loaded jam of the inning by striking out Taylor Motter.

Toronto answered in the second when Santiago Espinal hit a leadoff double and scored on Matt Chapman’s single, then tied it by scoring without a hit in the third. George Springer was hit by a pitch to start the inning, went to second on a wild pitch from Ashcraft, and scored on Bo Bichette’s RBI groundout.

SOMETHING TO DECLARE

Votto is 11 for 44 with four doubles, four homers and nine RBIs in his 12 games at Toronto.

RUNNING GAMES

Blue Jays pinch runner Vinny Capra was thrown out at second with Springer batting to end the sixth, while Cincinnati’s Tyler Stephenson was picked off first after his two-out single moved a runner into scoring position in the seventh.

GREAT GRAB

Springer raced into right center field to catch Kyle Farmer’s deep drive in the sixth.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Reds: LHP Mike Minor (shoulder) will make a fourth rehab start at Triple-A Louisville before rejoining the Reds. Minor allowed four runs and nine hits over 4 2/3 innings in a loss to Nashville Friday.

UP NEXT

Reds: Cincinnati has not named a starter for Monday’s home game, the opener of a four-game series against the Cubs. RHP Marcus Stroman (1-4, 4.88) starts for Chicago.

Blue Jays: RHP Jose Berrios (3-2, 4.83) will start at St. Louis Monday night as Toronto begins a two-game series. RHP Miles Mikolas (3-2, 1.68) goes for the Cardinals.

Wisdom, Schwindel homer as Cubs rally past Diamondbacks 5-4

CHICAGO (AP) Patrick Wisdom grinned as he pulled on a gray T-shirt that read SCHWISDOM across the front.

Nothing more needed to be said.

Wisdom and Schwindel hit consecutive homers against Ian Kennedy in the eighth inning, and the Chicago Cubs beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-4 on Sunday to avoid a four-game series sweep.

Wisdom had a bouncer go just foul right before he connected for his ninth homer, sending a leadoff shot deep to center field. Schwindel then drove a 1-0 pitch from Kennedy (3-3) into the bleachers in left for his fourth homer.

“I was riding the momentum right there,” Schwindel said. “So I think that was the intent on the swing.”

Schwindel and Wisdom also hit consecutive homers during Chicago’s 7-6 loss on Saturday. The last time the same two Cubs hit back-to-back homers in consecutive games was Hall of Famer Ernie Banks and Jim Hickman on Aug. 23-24, 1969, according to the team.

“We feed off each other’s energy, so it’s been great,” Wisdom said.

P.J. Higgins drove in three runs with his first career triple for Chicago. Keegan Thompson (4-0) worked three innings of one-run ball for the win.

The Cubs had dropped four in a row, blowing a 4-0 lead on Saturday.

Ketel Marte and Pavin Smith each had two hits for Arizona, which was trying for its first sweep at Wrigley Field since Aug. 9-11, 1999. David Peralta snapped a tie with a fielder’s choice that drove in Geraldo Perdomo in the seventh.

The Diamondbacks had lost six in a row before they arrived in Chicago, including a four-game sweep at the Dodgers.

“I thought overall these past four games, I was proud of the way we came back after what we did in (Los Angeles),” manager Torey Lovullo said. “We were in a position to sweep a team on the road. We just couldn’t get it done.”

Chicago grabbed the lead in the second. With two out and the bases loaded, Higgins lined his second big league hit into the corner in right and used a headfirst slide to beat the throw into third.

Before Higgins’ clutch swing, it looked as if Merrill Kelly might escape the inning unscathed. After the first three batters reached – including Wisdom’s infield single on a popup that dropped in front of third baseman Drew Ellis – Alfonso Rivas struck out looking and Andrelton Simmons fouled out.

“Huge knock for us,” manager David Ross said. “Huge.”

The Diamondbacks rallied in the sixth, tying it at three on two-out RBI singles for Marte, Smith and Jake McCarthy. Marte’s hit drove in Ellis, who led off with a double to center for the team’s first extra-base hit against Wade Miley.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Diamondbacks: 3B Josh Rojas (left hand contusion) was held out. Lovullo said he doesn’t think Rojas will need a stint on the injured list. Ellis was recalled from Triple-A Reno and INF Yonny Hernandez was sent down. … Lovullo said he talked to SS Nick Ahmed on Saturday, and he has a text chain going with C Jose Herrera, LHP Kyle Nelson and OF Cooper Hummel. Herrera, Nelson and Hummel are on the IL because of COVID-19 protocol, and Ahmed also is on the IL with an unspecified issue. Lovullo said all four players are doing well.

Cubs: C Willson Contreras (right hamstring) is day to day after he left Saturday’s 7-6 loss in the third inning. Higgins was promoted from Triple-A Iowa, and INF Ildemaro Vargas was designated for assignment. … INF Nico Hoerner (right ankle) hit on the field, and Ross said he planned to take some ground balls. INF Nick Madrigal (low back strain) played catch. Ross said he thinks Madrigal will need a rehab stint in the minors, but Hoerner could return as soon as the team’s upcoming series at Cincinnati.

UP NEXT

Diamondbacks: RHP Zach Davies (2-2, 4.35 ERA) starts Monday night against Kansas City in the opener of a nine-game homestand. RHP Zack Greinke (0-2, 3.48 ERA) takes the mound for the Royals.

Cubs: LHP Drew Smyly (1-5, 3.97 ERA) pitches Monday night at Cincinnati in the opener of a four-game series. The Reds have not announced their starter.

Tigers top Guardians 4-2 for Faedo’s first big league win

CLEVELAND (AP) Rookie Alex Faedo allowed two runs in 5 1/3 innings for his first major league win and Miguel Cabrera had an RBI double as the Detroit Tigers beat the Cleveland Guardians 4-2 on Sunday.

Faedo (1-1) struck out two in his fourth appearance since being called up from Triple-A Toledo on May 4. The right-hander missed all of 2021 after undergoing Tommy John surgery and began this season at Class A Lakeland.

“You’re only going to get your first win once, so you’ve got to celebrate it,” said Faedo, whose teammates gave him a laundry cart ride into the shower. “It was a good time. I got hit with a lot of baby powder, ketchup via (Tarik) Skubal, all sorts of liquids.”

Cabrera’s double in the first inning scored Robbie Grossman and was the 603rd of his career, tying Cal Ripken Jr. for 16th all-time. It also was hit No. 3,022, one short of Lou Brock in the 28th spot.

Detroit took a 3-2 lead in the fifth when Tucker Barnhart scored on an error by first baseman Josh Naylor. Grossman hit a sharp grounder that went under Naylor’s glove, allowing Barnhart to come around from second.

“When we got the lead, I felt like I had to hold it,” Faedo said. “It’s a prestigious thing to be up here in the majors. I understand that.”

Javier Baez added a solo homer in the eighth for the Tigers, who snapped a three-game skid and are 5-4 since falling a season-low 14 games below .500 on May 12. Gregory Soto pitched the ninth for his seventh save.

“With Miggy and me, you’ve got to show the experience you’ve got to help the team,” Baez said. “The support of my teammates has been pretty important.”

Guardians righty Shane Bieber (1-3) struck out a season-high 10 in seven innings, giving up six hits and three runs, two of them earned. The 2020 AL Cy Young Award winner has not won since April 20 against the White Sox, six starts ago.

Naylor homered in the fourth and Owen Miller had an RBI single in the first. Cleveland did not record a hit in the final 3 2/3 innings against four Detroit relievers, losing for the sixth time in its last eight games.

“I was able to find my rhythm early, but I felt like there is a lot more there,” Bieber said. “It’s frustrating because the team lost, but you’ve got to take the good and the bad and go forward.”

Daz Cameron had an RBI single and made the play of the day for the Tigers, robbing Amed Rosario of a potential two-run homer in the fifth. Cameron snow-coned the ball at the yellow line atop the wall in center, then turned it into a double play at first base.

“He smacked it pretty well and after I read the ball, I realized I had a pretty good chance,” Cameron said. “I just went up and got it.”

The first pitch was delayed by 20 minutes due to light rain. The teams’ scheduled game Saturday was postponed because of thunderstorms and will be made up on July 14.

MANAGER MANIA

Guardians manager Terry Francona and Tigers counterpart A.J. Hinch were back in their respective dugouts after missing the series opener Friday for medical reasons. Francona underwent a minor procedure, while Hinch fell ill and remained at the team hotel.

“I still don’t feel good, so personally, the rainout yesterday was the best thing ever,” Hinch said. “I was in bed by 6 p.m. and slept well.”

Cleveland coaches Sandy Alomar Jr., Mike Sarbaugh and Joe Torres also rejoined the team after clearing MLB’s health and safety protocols for COVID-19.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Tigers: RHP Tarik Skubal (lower left leg bruise), who was struck by a liner off the bat of Ernie Clement in the fifth inning Friday, will be given an extra day before making his next start. “The injury isn’t a major concern, but he is sore,” Hinch said.

Guardians: RHP Aaron Civale (left gluteal cramp) will not require a stint on the injured list, but is likely to be pushed back in the rotation. Civale fell awkwardly while pursuing a ground ball on Friday, forcing him to leave after 6 1/3 innings.

UP NEXT

Tigers: RHP Elvin Rodriguez (0-0, 13.50 ERA) is scheduled to make his first major league start Monday at Minnesota. He worked 2 2/3 innings in his April 10 debut against the White Sox.

Guardians: RHP Triston McKenzie (2-3, 2.97 ERA) takes the mound Monday at Houston. The 6-foot-5, 165-pounder is 2-1 in three May starts, striking out 17 over 19 1/3 innings with a 2.33 ERA.

Pujols hits 2 HRs, Molina pitches, Matz hurt, Cards top Bucs

PITTSBURGH (AP) Albert Pujols hit two home runs, then caught the warmup tosses when star catcher Yadier Molina made his first pitching appearance to close out the St. Louis Cardinals’ 18-4 romp over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Sunday.

Molina gave up a pair of homers and four runs while working the ninth inning, eventually completing the Cardinals’ three-game sweep.

But it was not all fun and games for St. Louis. Starter Steven Matz lasted only four pitches before being pulled with stiffness in his left shoulder.

“Sometimes stuff comes up,” Matz said. “I felt it a little bit in the bullpen. I was trying to work through it a little bit. … Just try to get through this, get some outs.”

Pujols boosted his career home run count to 683. Pinch-hitting for Nolan Arenado with St. Louis up 11-0 in the fifth inning, Pujols launched a 425-foot drive off the left-field rotunda.

The 42-year-old slugger added a three-run homer in the ninth off Pirates infielder Josh VanMeter in the ninth. Pujols is fifth on the all-time homer list, 13 behind Alex Rodriguez in fourth, and his 32 at PNC Park are the most by an opposing player.

“I’m here to try to help this ball club as much as I can,” Pujols said. “This is not about me. It’s never been about me. It’s always been about this Cardinals organization and the impact I can make on the players in the organization.”

Exactly a week after Pujols took the mound for the first time in his big league career, Molina got his turn with St. Louis ahead 18-0. Pujols was behind the plate to warm up his longtime teammate between innings.

A perennial All-Star and Gold Glover at catching pitches, the 39-year-old Molina didn’t do quite as well throwing them. He gave up a solo homer to Yoshi Tsutsugo and a three-run drive by Jack Suwinski. His velocity topped out at 69 mph.

“I feel like Yadi had more command of his fastball (than Pujols),” Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol said. “It didn’t go his way. Missed middle-middle too much.”

Overall, Molina allowed four hits in his one inning, throwing 14 of 20 pitches for strikes, without a strikeout or walk.

Pujols also permitted four runs and two homers in one inning while finishing out a rout of San Francisco last Sunday night. Pujols gave three hits, walked one and struck out none.

Naturally, the two stars poked each other over who threw it best. Both currently have a 36.00 ERA, by the way.

“Mine was better; I didn’t give up a double like he did,” Pujols told St. Louis media.

Retorted Molina: “I didn’t walk anybody.”

Michael Chavis flied out against Molina to end the game.

“I wish it was a real pitcher,” he said. “It was just awkward. But he was having fun on the mound. … It’s fun to see. I’m glad he got to enjoy it. He’s a Hall of Famer, so you have to pay your respect and everything. Good for him.”

After Matz exited, Angel Rondon (1-0) entered to strike out Ke’Bryan Hayes with his first pitch. Rondon allowed just one hit in five innings for his first win in the majors, striking out four and walking three.

After being recalled from the taxi squad before the game, Rondon made his third major league appearance and first since June 12, 2021.

“I can’t say enough about that performance today,” Matz said. “For him to come in, not even knowing when he was coming in, to throw five innings. It was impressive. That was huge for the team. He picked me up, he picked the team up.”

Highly touted prospect Nolan Gorman doubled in the first, putting the Cardinals ahead with his first major league RBI. He got three hits and went 5 for 10 with two doubles in his first series in the majors.

Tommy Edman also had three of the Cardinals’ 20 hits. He hit two doubles and helped key a six-run second against Bryse Wilson (0-3).

Harrison Bader also homered off VanMeter, who made his first pitching appearance in the majors and gave up five runs in the ninth. Usually a second baseman and outfielder, VanMeter was pressed into duty as a catcher for the first time in an emergency situation.

ROSTER MOVE

Cardinals LHP Matthew Liberatore was optioned to Triple-A Memphis. He gave up four runs on seven hits with three strikeouts and two walks in 4 2/3 innings during his major league debut Saturday.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Pirates SS Kevin Newman had a setback while rehabbing a left groin strain with Triple-A Indianapolis. The new injury is in the hamstring area, general manager Ben Cherington said.

UP NEXT

Cardinals: RHP Miles Mikolas (3-2, 1.68) will take the mound Monday as St. Louis heads home for the first of two games against the Toronto Blue Jays. Mikolas has not allowed more than two earned runs in any of his eight starts this season.

Pirates: RHP JT Brubaker (0-4, 5.50) is expected to start Monday in the first of a three-game set against the Colorado Rockies. His most recent win came Aug. 24 of last season.

Nats win 8-2; Brewers’ Peralta exits with shoulder tightness

MILWAUKEE (AP) Lane Thomas hit two RBI doubles and the Washington Nationals broke out of their hitting slump Sunday in an 8-2 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers, who lost Freddy Peralta to shoulder tightness in the fourth inning.

Peralta (3-2) left after allowing a run-scoring double to Thomas during the Nationals’ six-run outburst in the fourth inning. That marked the Nationals’ highest-scoring inning of the season and matched the biggest run total the Brewers had allowed in a single inning this year.

The Nationals entered the day having dropped seven of their past nine, and they had scored a total of six runs in the seven losses. But they had an early 8-0 lead Sunday and cruised to the win.

Milwaukee didn’t retire anyone in the fourth until Nelson Cruz – the eighth batter of the inning – got thrown out trying to stretch a bloop single down the right-field line into a double. The Nationals first eight batters of the inning all got hits, tying a Washington franchise record for consecutive plate appearances with a hit.

The Nationals led 3-0 and had runners on second and third when Peralta’s injury forced his departure. Peralta, a 2021 All-Star, entered the day having allowed just one run over 12 2/3 innings in his previous two starts.

Dee Strange-Gordon and Cesar Hernandez greeted reliever Brent Suter with consecutive RBI bunt singles to make it 5-0. That was the first time the Nationals have produced bunt RBIs in consecutive at-bats, according to Elias Sports Bureau.

Keibert Ruiz followed with an RBI double before Juan Soto hit a two-run single through a drawn-in infield.

Nationals manager Dave Martinez had altered his lineup Sunday by moving Soto from second to third and moving Ruiz into the No. 2 spot. Ruiz had gone 8 of 16 in his past five games going into Sunday, while Soto was 2 of 20 over his past six games.

Washington wasted little time getting its offense going.

The Nationals took a 1-0 lead in the second inning when Maikel Franco reached on a two-out infield hit and came home on Thomas’ double to right. They extended the lead to 2-0 in the third as Cruz hit a two-out single to drive in Hernandez.

Milwaukee got a solo homer from Tyrone Taylor and an RBI single by Andrew McCutchen in the fifth.

Nationals starter Aaron Sanchez (3-3) struck out one and gave up seven hits, two runs and two walks in five innings.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Nationals pitchers Stephen Strasburg and Joe Ross will begin rehabilitation assignments Tuesday.

Ross will pitch for Double-A Harrisburg and Strasburg will join Class A Fredericksburg. Martinez said they’re planning for each of the right-handers to work four innings and throw 60-plus pitches.

Martinez said Ross got the Double-A assignment because “I think Joe’s a little bit further along, so we pushed him up. And we want to keep close eyes on Stras, being that he’s going to be a little closer.”

Strasburg is recovering from thoracic outlet syndrome surgery and has pitched a total of 26 2/3 innings since the start of the 2020 season. Ross hasn’t pitched in a major league game since Aug. 10 because of a partially torn elbow ligament.

UP NEXT

Nationals: Begin a seven-game homestand Monday in the opener of a three-game series with Los Angeles. Scheduled starters are RHP Joan Adon (1-7, 6-38 ERA) for the Nationals and LHP Tyler Anderson (4-0, 4.04) for the Dodgers.

Brewers: Open a season-long 11-game trip Monday at San Diego. RHP Adrian Houser (3-4, 3.22) will start for the Brewers.

Anderson’s HR hushes Yankees, lifts Chisox to twinbill sweep

NEW YORK (AP) Tim Anderson said everything he had to say with one swing of the bat – and a commanding trot around the bases.

Anderson hit a three-run homer in the eighth inning and then put a finger to his lips to silence fans booing and chanting “Jackie” at him, capping a tumultuous weekend and helping the Chicago White Sox beat the New York Yankees 5-0 Sunday night for a doubleheader sweep.

“What a day,” White Sox manager Tony La Russa said.

A day after Anderson, who is Black, accused Yankees slugger Josh Donaldson, who is white, of making a racist remark by calling him Jackie Robinson, the All-Star shortstop didn’t play in the first game. AJ Pollock hit a tiebreaking homer off Aroldis Chapman in the ninth inning as the White Sox won 3-1.

Anderson was jeered during pregame introductions and prior to each at-bat in the nightcap. White Sox starter Michael Kopech said he heard fans chanting “Jackie” at Anderson in the second game.

Anderson had already hit two singles when he homered over the right field wall with two outs, finishing off a five-run inning.

Anderson took a slow trot and put his hands to his lips in a shushing gesture as he rounded the bases. He clapped his hands several times upon crossing home plate and pointed skyward before again making a silencing motion.

“I think that was just one of the cooler things I’ve seen – watching an entire crowd that’s shown low class towards him, booing him, calling him `Jackie’ and then hitting a homer and putting us in a good position to win,” Kopech said. “Have nothing but respect for him.”

Anderson did not speak to reporters before or after the doubleheader.

“When you talk about how special he is, just think about the game he had under those circumstances,” La Russa said. “It’s special.”

Donaldson also did not speak to reporters. Through a Yankees spokesman, Donaldson said he had not talked to Major League Baseball about the situation and didn’t talk speak to Anderson on Sunday.

There didn’t appear to be any carryover on the field in either game from the previous afternoon’s anger and tension when the benches and bullpens emptied. Donaldson acknowledged Saturday he called Anderson “Jackie” – a reference to the pioneering baseball icon that elicited criticism from both managers.

Donaldson said it was part of an inside joke with Anderson. MLB is investigating the incident.

“He deserves the recognition and he deserves the respect,” La Russa said of Anderson. “If somebody disrespects him, he should get upset. I know I would.”

La Russa said Donaldson’s comment was “racist” following Saturday’s game, a 7-5 Yankees win. Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Sunday he believed Donaldson didn’t mean any harm with his words, but thought using such a term was “.somewhere he should not be going.”

Kopech returned from paternity leave Friday after going home to witness the birth of his second child. He retired the first 17 batters before Rob Brantly doubled in the sixth.

“To be honest, my mind hasn’t been on baseball until yesterday, and that probably helped me quite a bit,” Kopech said.

Kopech (1-1) allowed just the one hit and two walks while striking out six over seven innings.

Luis Severino scattered eight hits over seven scoreless innings. Jonathan Loaisiga (1-2) lost in relief.

“They outpitched us today,” Boone said. “They were able to hold us down today.”

Donaldson sat out the finale after going 0 for 4. With two on and one out in the eighth, he flied out to the track in right-center.

White Sox catcher Yasmani Grandal, who confronted Donaldson on Saturday, went out to talk to reliever Kendall Graveman as the Yankees third baseman approached the batter’s box. Donaldson stepped back out of the box as Grandal returned to the plate.

Aaron Judge’s eighth-inning homer off Graveman (1-1) cost Johnny Cueto a win in the opener. The resurgent 36-year-old righty allowed six hits, walked two and struck out five in his second major league outing of the season.

Liam Hendriks, who used an expletive earlier Sunday to describe how he didn’t believe Donaldson’s explanation, struck out two in a perfect ninth.

Hendriks pumped his fist and yelled loud enough to be heard three levels away after whiffing Jose Trevino for his 13th save.

Yankees starter Jameson Taillon allowed one run on five hits in a season-high seven innings. Chapman (0-2) took the loss.

EARLY EXIT FOR BLAKE

Yankees pitching coach Matt Blake was ejected for arguing with home plate umpire Greg Gibson in the third inning of the nightcap, when Anderson hit a ball off his foot but was credited with an infield single when Severino stumbled while trying to set to throw to first.

TRAINER’S ROOM

White Sox: LHP Aaron Bummer (right knee strain) was activated from the 15-day injured list and served as the 27th man for the doubleheader.

Yankees: RHP Chad Green (elbow), long one of the Yankees’ top setup men, will undergo Tommy John surgery. Green was hurt while pitching against Baltimore on Thursday night. . OF Joey Gallo and C Kyle Higashioka were each placed on the COVID-19 IL. Boone said neither player has tested positive but both were showing symptoms of the coronavirus.

UP NEXT

White Sox: After an off-day Monday, RHP Dylan Cease (4-1, 3.09 ERA) is slated to start against the Boston Red Sox as the White Sox begin a five-game homestand.

Yankees: RHP Gerrit Cole (4-0, 2.89 ERA) pitches Monday in the opener of a three-game series against visiting Baltimore.

Boone: Donaldson shouldn’t make ‘Jackie’ remark to Anderson

NEW YORK (AP) Yankees slugger Josh Donaldson was wrong to make a remark referencing Jackie Robinson when speaking to White Sox star Tim Anderson, New York manager Aaron Boone said Sunday.

A day after the comment called “racist” by Chicago manager Tony La Russa – an assessment that Anderson agreed with – Major League Baseball continued to investigate the incident.

Anderson, one of baseball’s leading Black voices and an All-Star shortstop, and Donaldson, who is white, did not speak to reporters before the start of Sunday’s doubleheader.

Boone said he talked to Donaldson after Saturday’s game and believed his player’s explanation for why he said it – but he also said he thought Donaldson shouldn’t have used the term.

“I think with what’s going on between the two players and between the two teams over the last week or two, I certainly understand how that would be sensitive and understand the reaction,” Boone said. “I also understand Josh has been very forthcoming with the history of it and the context of it. So I don’t believe there was any malicious intent in that regard.”

“But this is just my opinion – (that’s) somewhere he should not be going,” he said.

Donaldson said he twice called Anderson by “Jackie” – as in Robinson, who famously broke MLB’s color barrier in 1947 – during the Yankees’ 7-5 win. The benches and bullpens emptied as tensions escalated.

“He just made a, you know, disrespectful comment,” Anderson said after the game. “Basically, it was trying to call me Jackie Robinson. Like, `What’s up, Jackie?'”

Donaldson said he was trying to defuse the situation. The benches also emptied on May 13 after Anderson shoved Donaldson following a hard tag in Chicago.

Donaldson said he’s used the “Jackie” reference in the past with Anderson, who had said he viewed himself as a potential modern-day Robinson in a 2019 interview with Sports Illustrated.

“My meaning of that is not any term trying to be racist by any fact of the matter,” Donaldson said Saturday.

“Obviously, he deemed it disrespectful,” he said. “And look, if he did, I apologize. That’s not what I was trying to do by any manner and that’s what happened.”

White Sox catcher Yasmani Grandal confronted Donaldson before a fifth-inning at-bat, leading to a benches-clearing incident in which no punches were thrown and no one was ejected.

“In this clubhouse, we have TA’s back in everything,” White Sox closer Liam Hendriks said. “And that was just a completely unacceptable thing.”

Hendriks, who is white, used an expletive in saying he didn’t believe Donaldson’s explanation.

“And then trying to whip it out as being an inside joke? No, that’s …,” he said.

Boone said he spoke Saturday to MLB senior vice president of on-field operations Michael Hill, who let him know the league would investigate the matter.

“Whenever they reach a conclusion, I’m sure you’ll hear about it,” La Russa said.

A pair of brown shoes sat in front of Donaldson’s locker, located diagonally from a display honoring Robinson and including his quote “A life is not important except the impact it has on other lives” hanging above the entrance to the Yankees’ clubhouse.

Grandal appeared briefly in the White Sox’s clubhouse but didn’t speak to the media.

Anderson, with the locker next to Grandal’s, sat at his stall, wearing a T-shirt that said “Family.”

Anderson was originally in the lineup for the opener before being scratched by La Russa, who said he wanted the shortstop to play only one game and that appearing in the second game “.preserves his body better than playing in the heat.”

Grandal started the opener at catcher and batted sixth. Donaldson started at third base and batted fifth. He also received the usual “Donaldson” chant from the Bleacher Creatures in the top of the first.

Hendriks, who said he didn’t get along with Donaldson when the two were teammates with the Toronto Blue Jays in 2015, wasn’t sure if there would be additional issues Sunday, which marked the final scheduled meetings of the season between the Yankees and White Sox.

“We’ll wait and see,” Hendriks said. “I think the way it left off, I don’t think it’s ever going to be necessarily complete. This is a yearslong thing between us and that’s something that I don’t think’ll ever necessarily die down. But I think it’s something that MLB should handle on MLB’s end.”

AP source: Clowney re-signing with Browns for 2022 season

CLEVELAND (AP) Jadeveon Clowney’s running it back with Myles Garrett and the Browns.

The free agent defensive end, who revived his career last season with Cleveland, agreed Sunday to re-sign with the team for 2022, a person familiar with the deal told the Associated Press.

Clowney, who had nine sacks while playing opposite Garrett, will sign a one-year contract worth up to $11 million, according to the person who spoke on condition of anonymity because the team has not announced the agreement.

The Browns had remained optimistic – and cautiously confident – about bringing back Clowney.

The 29-year-old and 2014 No. 1 overall pick had his most sacks since 2018 with Houston while playing in 14 games last season for Cleveland. He signed a one-year, $10 million deal with incentives last April with the Browns.

Clowney’s presence forced offenses to commit an extra blocker at times to his side, which in turn freed up Garrett, who had a career-high 16 sacks in 2021 and was an All-Pro. Garrett also enjoyed playing with Clowney and had expressed hope they could team up again.

In April, Garrett posted a photo on his Instagram page of him slapping hands with Clowney during a game last season along with the caption: “Job not finished.”

Back with the Browns, Clowney will also be reunited with quarterback Deshaun Watson. They played together for two seasons with the Texans.

It makes sense for Clowney, who has been slowed by injuries during his career, to return to the Browns. Not only does his pairing with Garrett give the team two elite edge rushers, but the Browns know how to best utilize his strengths as well as when to give him time off to keep him healthy.

Clowney has always been an intriguing talent with his unique blend of size and speed. Before signing with Cleveland, he was limited to eight games with Tennessee in 2020 because of a knee injury and surgery. He spent 2019 with Seattle after four years in Houston.

Unsure if they’d get Clowney back, the Browns added some new defensive line pieces during the offseason by acquiring end Chase Winovich in a trade from New England and drafting Alex Wright (UAB) and Oklahoma teammates Isaiah Thomas and Perrion Winfrey.

Indy Homers to Take Down Toledo

INDIANAPOLIS – Jared Oliva, Oneil Cruz and Mason Martin each launched home runs as the Indianapolis Indians offense came alive to clinch a series victory over the Toledo Mud Hens on Sunday afternoon, 7-1.

Both of the Indians’ season-high three-homer games have come against Toledo this week. On Friday night, Ji-Hwan Bae, Martin and Travis Swaggerty each homered to set the single-game high.

With both teams scoreless through four innings, Oliva sparked a three-run Indians (21-19) frame with a leadoff home run. Hoy Park and Cruz scored with two outs on a Swaggerty RBI single and subsequent fielding error by right fielder Brendon Davis.

After Toledo (21-19) scored its lone run on an RBI double in the top of the sixth inning, Indianapolis tacked on four insurance runs courtesy of two homers and an RBI double off the bat of Cal Mitchell. With one out, Cruz sent the third pitch of his at-bat 449 feet onto the concourse beyond right-center field. Following Mitchell’s double to score Swaggerty from second, Martin launched his eighth home run of the season to extend the lead, 7-1.

The Indians were firing on all cylinders in the contest, with six Indians pitchers combining for a season-high tying 14 strikeouts of the Mud Hens offense and only three hits allowed. Cody Bolton got the start for Indy and surrendered just one hit with six strikeouts over 3.1 innings. Eric Hanhold (W, 2-0) gave up the only Toledo run of the afternoon.

Garrett Hill (L, 0-1) held the Indians without a hit through the first four innings before surrendering all three runs in the fifth.

Martin has now recorded an extra-base hit in seven of his last eight games, the last three of which have left the yard. Cruz and Swaggerty each notched multi-hit performances, and Canaan Smith-Njigba extended his on-base streak to a league-leading 24 games.

The Indians travel to St. Paul for a Tuesday afternoon game at 12:07 PM ET. Neither team has yet to name a starter.

Ramos Takes 4th at U.S. Senior World Team Trials

CORALVILLE, Iowa – Rising Purdue sophomore Matt Ramos placed fourth at 57 kg at the 2022 U.S. Senior World Team Trials Challenge Tournament, hosted at Xtream Arena in Coralville, Iowa on Saturday and Sunday. Ramos went 2-2 over the two-day competition, his first career senior level world team trials.

Ramos opened the tournament with a 12-7 victory over No. 9 seed Aiden Reeves of the Viking Wrestling Club, rallying from an early deficit with a pair of four-point moves to earn the victory. The Boilermaker’s next match would go the other way, however, as he fell to fourth-seeded Jakob Camacho of the Wolfpack Wrestling Club 11-7 in the semifinals. After trailing 3-0 at the break, Ramos scored a four-point move, and then picked up another point on a failed challenge to take a 5-3 advantage with 2:30 left in the match. Camacho scored six straight points, posting two with a minute left in the match and four at the 30-second mark to retake the lead 9-5. Ramos closed the gap with two pushouts, but gave up two more as he rallied late for the final score.

Ramos took a forfeit win to start Sunday’s round, passing Timothy Levine of the New England Regional Training Center, and advanced to face No. 3 seed Zane Richards of Titan Mercury Wrestling Club for third. Richards took a 4-0 lead with a takedown and gutwrench on the edge about midway through the first. Ramos answered with a takedown of his own before the end of the first period, making it a 4-2 deficit at the break. Ramos pushed ahead with a takedown, followed by a caution-and-one call on Richards for fleeing the hold, giving Ramos a 5-4 advantage with 33 seconds left. Richards scored the decisive takedown inside the final five seconds as he got to a leg and Ramos couldn’t hold him off on the edge with a leg-pass attempt.

Ramos and his Purdue teammates will return to action in the first week of June at the U20 & U23 World Team Trials, hosted at SPIRE Academy in Geneva, Ohio.

Matt Ramos – 57 kg – FOURTH PLACE

Quarterfinals: Aiden Reeves (Viking WC) – W, 12-7

Valpo Baseball to Open MVC Tournament on Tuesday

Valparaiso (16-31, 5-15 MVC)
at MVC Tournament
Hammons Field | Springfield, Mo.

Tuesday, May 24, 5:30 p.m. CT vs. Indiana State – RHP Colin Fields
Wednesday, May 25, 11 a.m. CT vs. Southern Illinois
May 26-28, TBD

Next Up in Valpo Baseball: The Valparaiso University baseball team will open up the 2022 Missouri Valley Conference Tournament on Tuesday with an elimination-round game against Indiana State. The winner of the game will advance to the double-elimination portion of the event. Head coach Brian Schmack will give the ball to right-handed pitcher Colin Fields with the season on the line on Tuesday. If Valpo wins, the team’s next game would be on Wednesday morning against MVC regular-season champion Southern Illinois. The winner of the tournament, which is hosted by Missouri State, will receive an automatic NCAA Regional berth.

Recently in Valpo Baseball: After dropping the series opener 9-2 on Thursday night, Valpo bounced back with an 8-4 victory on Friday in the second game of a regular-season-closing set at Evansville. The Beacons used a 16-hit attack to help lefty Jake Miller earn his sixth win of the season after allowing one run on three hits over three innings. The Beacons had four runs on six hits in the first inning alone. Another big first inning helped Valpo to a 3-0 lead in Saturday’s series finale, but play was halted in the top of the second due to lightning and inclement weather and was eventually called a no contest.

Following the Beacons: Every game of the MVC Tournament will air on ESPN+ with broadcasters Scott Warmann, Shane Dennis, Art Hains and Connor Onion on the call. Hains and Onion will be on the broadcast for Tuesday’s game against Indiana State. Links to live video and stats will be available on ValpoAthletics.com. For in-game updates, follow @ValpoBaseball on Twitter.

Head Coach Brian Schmack: Brian Schmack (168-266), the 17th head baseball coach in Valparaiso University history, is in his ninth season in charge of the program. This year, he moves into sole possession of third in program history for number of seasons coached with nine, surpassing Donald Warnke (1946-1953). Entering the season, Schmack’s win total ranks fourth in program history after he surpassed Rick Ferchen (1982-1987, 147) during the 2021 campaign. Also in 2021, Schmack joined Paul Twenge (1988-2006), Emory G. Bauer (1954-1981) and Tracy Woodson (2007-2013) as the only head coaches to reach the 150-win threshold. The former big-league pitcher led Valpo to 25 wins in his inaugural campaign in 2014, a school record for victories by a first-year skipper. Schmack, a member of the 2003 Detroit Tigers, served as pitching coach/associate head coach at Valpo for seven seasons prior to his promotion.

Series Notes: Valpo holds a 30-53-1 all-time record against Indiana State, Tuesday’s first-round opponent. Now would be a good time for the team’s first win over the Sycamores since joining the Missouri Valley Conference as Valpo is 0-13 against Indiana State since joining The Valley. The Beacons are attempting to end an 18-game head-to-head losing streak that dates all the way back to March 31, 2007, an 11-2 win in Terre Haute. Tuesday’s game will mark the first MVC Tournament matchup between these two teams.

Valpo in The Valley Tournament: This will represent Valpo’s fourth MVC Tournament appearance as the team attempts to build on its best conference tournament showing since joining the league. The Brown & Gold survived a pair of elimination games with wins over Missouri State and Illinois State to finish as one of the final four teams standing in the event, joining a pair of NCAA Regional qualifiers in Indiana State and DBU and a 40-win Southern Illinois club. Valpo made a strong entrance in its first MVC Tournament back in 2018, beating a DBU team that went on to earn an NCAA at-large berth by a score of 13-10 in the tournament opener before incurring tight setbacks to Bradley (11-9) and DBU (7-5). The only season where Valpo did not win at least one MVC Tournament contest was 2019, when the team bowed out after an opening-round setback to Missouri State.

Tucker Continues Tear: Nolan Tucker notched his third four-hit game of the season in Valpo’s 8-4 victory over Evansville on May 20. He also had four-hit showings against Southern Illinois and St. Bonaventure. Tucker accounts for three of the team’s five four-hit games this season. The day helped Tucker finish the week with a slash line of .625/.667/.875 as he posted five hits in eight at-bats over two games. Tucker finished with a .384 batting in MVC play this season after entering the season with a .188 career batting average over two injury-riddled seasons. Furthermore, Tucker is hitting .374 overall and is in position to finish with Valpo’s best batting average since Ryan O’Gara hit .388 in 2010.

Sophomore Jump: Valpo shortstop Alex Thurston enjoyed a sophomore jump rather than a sophomore slump this season. After hitting .158 last season, Thurston finished the regular season with a .306 batting average, the second-best on the team and one of two Beacons to finish the regular year above the .300 line. Thurston missed the final game of the regular season at Evansville with an injury.

Renfro’s Rise: After finishing with a .231 batting average last year both overall and in MVC play, Brady Renfro has hit for Valpo’s second-highest batting average in league play this year. He ranks fifth on the team with a .252 nonconference batting average, but has done his best offensive work in league play, where he ranks second on the squad with a .319 average.

Lockwood Locked In: Over his final three appearances of the regular season, freshman RHP Connor Lockwood has hit his stride. The rookie righty allowed two runs on nine hits while striking out eight and walking five during that stretch, posting a 1.80 earned run average. That marked a significant step forward for Lockwood, who entered that stretch with an 0-5 record and 8.90 ERA.

16-Hit Effort: Valpo matched a season high with 16 hits in the final game of the regular season, an 8-4 victory at Evansville on Friday night. Six of those hits came as part of a four-run first. The 16-hit output equaled the team’s season high (March 25 vs. St. Bonaventure) and represented the team’s highest total in MVC play this year. The Beacons posted double-figure hit totals in three of their final five regular-season games and also did so in all three games of a road series at Southern Illinois in late April and early May.

Beacon Bits: Valpo has played 15 games this season decided by two runs or fewer and holds a 6-9 record in those contests. The Beacons are 3-4 in games decided by the slimmest of margins. Despite the number of close games, very few have flipped in the late innings. The team leading the game through six innings is 42-2 in Valpo games this year. The team leading after seven innings is a perfect 35-0 in Beacon games in 2022. Valpo is 2-21 when scoring three runs or fewer, but when scoring four runs or more, the team is 14-10.

A Look at the Leaderboards: Valpo ranks second in the Missouri Valley Conference in strikeouts per nine innings at 9.6 and leads the league in strikeout-to-walk ratio at 2.56. Bobby Nowak ranks 44th nationally and tied for first in The Valley with eight saves. Colin Fields leads the MVC and ranks 10th in the nation with 109 strikeouts. He leads the MVC and ranks third nationally with 14.08 strikeouts per nine innings. Jake Miller ranks seventh in the MVC in strikeouts with 75 and fourth in strikeouts per nine innings at 11.42. Nolan Tucker ranks second in the league in hitting at .374 and ninth in on-base percentage at .440. Alex Ryan is tied for second in the league with four triples.

Fields on the Single-Season Strikeout List: Colin Fields struck out nine on May 13 vs. Bradley, his 12th time in 13 starts with seven strikeouts or more this season before he had a season-low one strikeout in a one-inning start on May 19 at Evansville. Entering the MVC Tournament, Fields has 109 career strikeouts. In the game against Bradley, he became the first Valpo hurler to rack up 100 strikeouts in a single season since Bryce Shafer in 2010. In addition, he climbed into the top 5 in program history in single-season strikeouts by surpassing Richard Scheub’s 103 in 1949. Fields is just the second player since 1972 to crack the program record book in single-season strikeouts. He is 18 strikeouts away from tying the program’s single-season strikeout record. Furthermore, if Fields logs at least five innings in his first-round MVC Tournament start, he will reach 200 career innings pitched.

TODAY IN BASEBALL HISTORY

1890       The Giants and the Pittsburgh Alleghenys established a National League record when the teams combine to steal seventeen bases in a single game. New York will win the Polo Grounds contest, 17-10.

1901       Scoring nine runs in the bottom of the ninth at Cleveland’s League Park, the Blues, later known as the Indians, stun the Senators, 14-13. The incredible comeback, which consists of six singles, two doubles, a walk, a hit batsman, and a passed ball, comes after two outs.

1901       Clark Griffith, the White Sox’s pitcher-manager, working in relief for his club, decides to walk Philadelphia’s Napoleon Lajoie intentionally with the bases loaded. The strategy proves successful when he induces the next three batters to ground out to complete the 11-9 victory at Chicago’s South Side Park.

1910       In the top of the ninth inning in a game against Boston, Cincinnati’s outfielder Dode Paskert steals second base, third base, and home plate. The thievery proves to be the margin of victory when the Reds edge the Doves, 6-5.

1918       Provost Marshal Enoch Crowder issues a “work-or-fight” order, initially setting July 1 as the deadline for players to enter the needed war workforce or face induction into military service. Secretary of War Newton D. Baker, ignoring Woodrow Wilson’s letter stating that the President saw “no necessity” for curtailing play, allows the major leaguers to compete through Labor Day, with rosters staying intact for the shortened season and the World Series.

1924       Senator right-hander Walter Johnson strikes out 14, including six consecutive batters to tie an AL mark, en route to tossing a 4-0 one-hitter over Chicago. A fourth-inning single by Harry Hooper spoils the Big Train’s bid for his second career no-hitter.

1935       In Cincinnati, rain postpones the first-ever scheduled major league night game, but the team will face the Phillies tomorrow night. The Reds will play eight evening contests this season, including one against every club in the National League.

1936       With the Reds trailing by three runs and the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth inning at Crosley Field, Sammy Byrd hits Cy Blanton’s pitch for a game-ending home run, giving Cincinnati an incredible come-from-behind 4-3 victory. The 29-year-old outfielder becomes the third major leaguer to hit an ultimate grand slam, A round-tripper in the home team’s final at-bat, and erases a three-run deficit, resulting in a one-run victory.

1945       The Braves send pitcher Red Barrett along with $60,000 to the Cardinals for Mort Cooper, who had threatened to leave St. Louis over a salary dispute. After the early season swap, the newest Redbird goes 21-9 for his team, while Boston’s newcomer, a twenty-game winner for the previous three seasons, posts a modest 7-4 record for the sixth-place club.

1948       Yankees’ slugger Joe DiMaggio hits three consecutive home runs, the first two off future Hall of Famer Bob Feller. The trio of round-trippers helps the Bronx Bombers defeat the Tribe, 6-5.

1954       The White Sox send infielder Grady Hatton, obtained from Cincinnati in April, along with $100,000 to the Red Sox in exchange for George Kell, the 1949 American League batting champion. Chicago acquires the 31-year-old six-time All-Star third baseman, who started the season with a .311 lifetime batting average, as a significant upgrade, both defensively and offensively, at the hot corner.

1962       Joe Pepitone homers twice to become the second player in Yankee history to hit two home runs in the same inning when the Bronx Bombers score nine times in the eighth inning of a 13-7 rout of Kansas City. In 1936 as a rookie, Joe DiMaggio became the first pinstriper to accomplish the feat.

1963       Mets’ first baseman Gil Hodges is immediately named as the Senators’ manager, replacing Mickey Vernon when the teams complete the deal that sends Waterbury (CT) native Jimmy Piersall to New York. The 33 year-old part-time outfielder, who will bat only .194 in 40 games for his new team, will be released in July after drawing the ire of manager Casey Stengel for running the bases backward to celebrate his 100th career home run.

1965       Mets’ outfielder Ron Swoboda takes his position wearing a batting helmet – on his foot. After kicking the protective headgear, which gets stuck on his spikes, manager Casey Stengel ordered the young player to go out to the field.

1965       In the first inning of a 5-2 loss to San Francisco, Jimmy Wynn cannot catch Jim Ray Hart’s two-out routine fly ball when he loses the ball in the glare of diffused Texas sunlight streaming through plastic panes of the newly-opened Astrodome. The base-clearing inside-the-park three-run home run results in the painting of the ballpark’s ceiling the next day and will lead to Astroturf’s use next season because the grass will be unable to be grown due to the reduced amount of sunlight.

1970       After a 17-16, 15-inning loss, the Giants replace manager Clyde King with Charlie Fox, their Phoenix PCL affiliate skipper. With a 19-23 record at the time of the Goldsboro, NC native’s dismissal, San Francisco recovers to go 14 games over .500, finishing third under their new field boss.

1980       In the early morning hours of the players’ planned walkout, the MLBPA and the owners reach a preliminary four-year agreement, allowing the matter of free agency to be reopened the following season. The unresolved issue over free-agent compensation will lead to a 50-day strike next year that results in the loss of 712 games.

1984       The Tigers win their 16th consecutive road game, defeating the Angels, 4-2. Detroit’s victory ties an American League record established by the Senators in 1912.

1991       In front of a sparse Olympic Stadium crowd of 8,833, Tommy Greene, making his 15th start as a major leaguer, no-hits the Expos, 2-0. The Phillies’ right-hander joined the rotation replacing Danny Cox, who had suffered a pulled groin in his last start.

1991       At the Metrodome, Kirby Puckett strokes five singles and a triple in the Twins’ 10-6 loss in 11 innings to Texas. The outfielder’s performance marks the second time he collects six hits in a game, making him the fourth post-1900 major leaguer, along with Doc Cramer, Jim Bottomley, and Jimmie Foxx, to have accomplished the feat twice during their career.

1991       With his fourth-inning swipe of second base at Shea Stadium, Andre Dawson becomes the third member of the 300/300 club, with his 300th stolen base. The 36-year-old Cubs outfielder, who has also hit 354 home runs, joins Bobby Bonds and Willie Mays in reaching the milestone.

1993       The Royals Hall of Fame inducts team owner Ewing Kauffman. The public appearance at the stadium will be the philanthropist’s last trip to the Kansas City ballpark, which will be renamed in his honor shortly before his death on the first day in August.

1998       Carl Pavano pitches seven strong innings in his major-league debut for the Expos, allowing two runs, one earned, on three hits and strikes out six in the team’s 3-2 walk-off win over the Phillies at Olympic Stadium. Montreal acquired the 22-year-old Southington, Connecticut native in the Pedro Martinez trade with the Red Sox along with a player to be named later (Tony Armas).

1998       David Wells extends his American League record consecutive outs streak to 38 when Boston leadoff hitter Darren Lewis grounds out to begin the contest. The Yankee southpaw, who authored a perfect game in his last outing, had also retired the final ten Kansas City batters he faced in the start before the ‘perfecto.’

1999       Brady Anderson gets hit twice by a pitch in the same inning to set an American League record. The Oriole leadoff man, the third major leaguer to accomplish the feat, scores twice when the Birds tally ten runs in the first inning, routing the Rangers at Camden Yards, 16-5.

2000       Mariners’ outfielder Rickey Henderson draws his 2,000th career walk, becoming only the third player in baseball history to reach the milestone. Hall of Famers Babe Ruth and Ted Williams are the only other major leaguers to have accomplished the feat.

2002       Shawn Green hits four home runs in one game to become the 14th player in major league history, the second this month, to accomplish the feat. The Dodger right fielder’s 6-for-6 performance in Milwaukee’s Miller Park, which also includes a single and double, breaks Joe Adcock’s 1954 mark for total bases by one, with a total of 19.

2002       The Dodgers set a franchise mark when the team hits eight homers in one contest, bashing the Brewers, 16-3. Shawn Green’s four round-trippers account for half of the record-breaking barrage, and Brian Jordan, Hiram Bocachica, Adrian Beltre, and Dave Hansen contributing four-baggers in the Miller Park contest.

2004       Kaz Matsui, who surpasses Tommie Agee’s 1969 team record, sets a franchise mark with his fifth leadoff home run of the season, becoming the first Mets player to accomplish the feat in consecutive games. The 28-year-old Japanese shortstop is also the first big leaguer to have his first five career round-trippers be hit batting first in the first inning of a game.

2004       The River City Rascals, a member of the independent Frontier League, announce a ‘Sports Criminals Night,’ which will turn T.R. Hughes Ballpark into a giant cell block, with complete with a ‘dugout jail’ for fans during the June 2nd game against the Rockford Riverhawks. The team cancels the event, intended to humorously poke fun at the media’s coverage of athletes in trouble, after the community’s protests.

2008       Six weeks after his successful thyroid cancer surgery, Diamondback hurler Doug Davis allows just one run over seven innings in an 11-1 win over the Braves at Turner Field. The 32-year-old southpaw joins Red Sox starter Jon Lester, who threw a no-hitter earlier in the week to serve as an inspiration for cancer patients and their families.

2008       Giving up just one run in 6.1 innings in the Giants’ 8-2 victory over the Marlins, southpaw Barry Zito avoids becoming the first starter in franchise history to start a season 0-9. The former Cy Young Award winner, who signed a $126 million deal with San Francisco before last season, has posted a 12-22 record since donning the orange and black.

2009       At Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, Jason Giambi hits his 400th career home run. The A’s designated hitter goes deep off Dan Haren leading off the fourth inning in an 8-7 loss against Arizona to become the 44th major leaguer to reach the milestone.

2011       In a profile piece written by Jeffrey Toobin for The New Yorker, Fred Wilpon makes some very candid comments about some of the ‘stars’ on his payroll. The embattled Mets owner is critical of the often injured Jose Reyes and Carlos Beltran, and calls David Wright a nice kid, but “not a superstar.”

2011       Chasing a sixth-inning foul pop near the Rangers dugout in the sixth inning, A.J. Pierzynski nearly makes contact with George W. Bush, who is sitting in the owner’s box with his wife, Laura. The ball drops harmlessly into the stands, but the former president takes the opportunity to converse with the startled White Sox catcher.

2011       In the Brewers’ 11-3 win over the Nationals at Miller Park, Corey Hart hit his first three homers of the season and drives in seven runs, tying both franchise records. The Milwaukee right fielder goes deep with two-run blasts in the first and fifth off Washington starter Tom Gorzelanny to reach the 100th career homer run milestone and then adds a two-out three-run shot in the eighth, becoming the tenth Brewers player to hit three in one game.

2020       The Nationals scrap their virtual World Series ring ceremony, planned for airing on television and streaming online when the players decide they would rather wait to be together in person to receive their championship jewelry. The team will still unveil the ring’s design tomorrow, the day initially selected for the presentation, because the date marks the anniversary of Washington’s turnaround from a 19-31 record to a Game 7 victory in the Fall Classic.
