US loses to France 83-76, 25-game Olympic win streak ends
SAITAMA, Japan (AP) The final buzzer sounded and France barely celebrated.
To them, beating the United States again wasn’t really a surprise. And that might be the biggest indicator yet that the Americans – even after three consecutive Olympic gold medals – are no longer feared by other top international teams.
A 25-game Olympic winning streak for the U.S. is over, ending Sunday when France closed the game on a 16-2 run to beat the Americans 83-76 in the Tokyo Games. Evan Fournier’s 3-pointer off a broken play with just under a minute left put France ahead for good, as the Americans simply fell apart in the final minutes.
“They are better individually,” Fournier said of the Americans, “but they can be beaten as a team.”
That’s been proven with alarming regularity in the last two years. Starting with France’s win over the U.S. in the Basketball World Cup quarterfinals at China two years ago, the Americans are merely 3-5 in their last eight games with NBA players in the lineup.
The U.S. missed its final nine shots, five of them coming in a 21-second span in the final minute shortly after Fournier – who led all scorers with 28 points – made the go-ahead 3-pointer. Rudy Gobert wildly missed a layup on that play, but Guerschon Yabusele chased down the bouncing rebound and just before he dove into the U.S. bench he made a desperation swipe at the ball in an effort to knock it into Fournier’s direction.
Fournier turned Yabusele’s dive into a dagger, and just like that the Americans are in Olympic trouble.
“I think that’s a little bit of hubris if you think the Americans are supposed to just roll out the balls and win,” U.S. coach Gregg Popovich said. “We’ve got to work for it just like everybody else. And for those 40 minutes, they played better than we did.”
The Americans lost for only the sixth time in 144 games at the Olympics all-time, and fell to 53-4 in the Olympics with NBA players on the roster. The 2004 team at the Athens Games lost the other three, and won bronze. Every other U.S. team in the era that started with the “Dream Team” in 1992 won the gold and this one still can – but it’s far from a certainty.
“When you lose a game, you’re not surprised,” Popovich said. “You’re disappointed.”
Fournier had 28 points for France, while Rudy Gobert scored 14 and Nando de Colo had 13. Jrue Holiday had 18 points for the U.S., Bam Adebayo had 12, Damian Lillard 11 and Kevin Durant had 10 for the Americans – who are just 2-3 in their games this summer, the first four of them exhibitions in Las Vegas that weren’t supposed to mean much.
The Olympics, they were supposed to be different.
They weren’t. They lost, again.
“I mean, it’s great,” Gobert said. “But until we have what we want to have around our neck it doesn’t really matter.”
The idea of anyone else leaving an Olympics with gold hasn’t been all that realistic in recent years. Now, it’s very real.
A 10-point U.S. lead in the third quarter was wasted, and so was a 12-point barrage from Holiday in the opening 4 + minutes of the fourth quarter as the Americans went from six points down to start the period to six points up with 5:23 remaining.
The U.S. lead was seven with 3:30 left. France outscored the U.S. 16-2 from there, and the Americans missed all nine of their shots – five of them in a 21-second span on the same trip down the floor in the final minute, three of those from 3-point range.
“Evan was amazing,” France coach Vincent Collet said. “I don’t want to use big, big, big words, but he made some very big shots.”
The loss doesn’t knock the U.S. out of medal contention, but it essentially eliminates the margin for error. The Americans play Iran on Wednesday and then the Czech Republic on Saturday in its final two Group A games; win both of those, and the U.S. will be in the quarterfinals. Lose another one, and the Americans might not even finish in the top eight of this 12-team tournament.
The Americans scored three points in a seven-minute span of the third, Durant picked up his fourth foul – the FIBA limit is five with 16:45 left in the game, and that once-comfortable lead was soon gone. De Colo’s 3-pointer with 2:42 remaining in the third put France up 55-54, its first lead since the game’s first four minutes.
France led 62-56 going to the final quarter. Holiday – who arrived in Tokyo on Saturday, less than a week removed from helping Milwaukee win the NBA title – did all he could to will the U.S. to a win in the fourth, but simply didn’t get enough help.
“He was outstanding,” Popovich said.
It was the first time the U.S. and France played since the quarterfinals of the Basketball World Cup two years ago, a game that the Americans lost on the way to a seventh-place finish – the worst ever by a USA Basketball team with NBA players.
The U.S. got outscored 22-5 in the final 7 + minutes of that game, losing 89-79. This time, the final run was 16-2 in the final 3:17 to lose by seven.
That loss in China ended World Cup medal hopes. This one doesn’t end the Americans’ Olympic chances – but another loss almost certainly will.
“We have to defend better down the stretch,” U.S. forward Draymond Green said. “And close the games out.”
Russians top Biles, Americans in gymnastics qualifying
TOKYO (AP) The trouble started early. A step out of bounds on floor exercise here. A short landing there.
Over the course of two hours on Sunday, the mistakes – some almost imperceptible, some laid bare for the world to see – kept piling up, chipping away at the aura USA Gymnastics has built over the past decade. Not even the greatest of all time was immune to the realities of a sport where perfection is unattainable.
For 11 years, the Americans flirted with it, at least from a competitive standpoint, flying all over the globe, then flying back home with their suitcases stuffed with gold.
It still might happen at the Tokyo Olympics. But for the first time in a long time, it appears it won’t happen without a fight.
Russia pulled off a stunner in qualifying, posting a top score of 171.629, more than a full point ahead of the U.S. total 170.562. While reigning Olympic champion Simone Biles topped the all-around with teammate Sunisa Lee close behind in third, the Americans ended their session looking up at another name on the scoreboard in the team standings for the first time since the 2010 world championships.
“This was not the finals,” U.S. high-performance director Tom Forster said. “This was getting into the finals. So this might be a great awakening for us and we’ll take advantage of it.”
China, France, Belgium, Great Britain, Italy and host Japan also advanced to Tuesday night’s final. Olympic legend Oksana Chusovitina’s journey is over. The 46-year-old from Uzbekistan did not qualify during the vault final at her record eighth Olympics.
Athletes, judges and administrators rose to their feet to salute Chusovitina as she made her way off the floor. She waved to the crowd with tears in her eyes before posing for pictures with whoever wanted one.
“I’m saying goodbye to sports,” Chusovitina said. “It’s kind of mixed feelings. I’m alive, I’m happy, I’m here without any injuries, and I can stand on my own.”
Something the Americans have done in the team competition for 10 years. After going largely unchallenged over two Olympic quads, they suddenly have company.
Forster raised eyebrows following the Olympic Trials last month when he said taking the top four finishers in the all-around in rank over a squad that could potentially score a bit higher by taking a specialist didn’t matter. He reasoned sacrificing a tenth or two here or there wasn’t going to matter based on the history of blowout wins by the Americans at world championships since he took over in 2018.
“We thought it was a good order, and I still feel good about it,” Forster said, who later added, “it will all work out.”
It always has since Biles joined an already dominant program in 2013. Everything will be reset for the finals, when the format changes to three-up/three-count. The pressure will be greater. And the Americans have found a way to thrive under it.
Inside a largely empty Ariake Gymnastics Center, they finally faltered. At least by their towering standards.
Not even Biles was immune.
While the 24-year-old star topped the all-around with a total of 57.731 and advanced to the finals in all four events, it didn’t come easy. She backpedaled all the way off the mat following a tumbling pass on her floor exercise, then basically did the same on vault. She responded with a solid set on uneven bars, but a spectacular beam routine ended with her temporarily reeling following her dismount, something Forster said he’s never seen her do.
Biles, who came to Japan as the face of the U.S. Olympic movement and possibly the Games themselves, saluted the judges then walked off the podium with a smile that looked like a combination of relief, sarcasm and frustration.
There was plenty to go around.
Jordan Chiles’ relentlessly consistent run that carried her to a spot on the team ended with a major mistake on bars and a fall on beam. Grace McCallum stepped out of bounds on floor. Lee had two of her scores (vault and floor) dropped in the team competition, though her electric bar set helped her surge into third behind Biles and Brazil’s Rebeca Andrade.
The biggest bright spot for the Americans may have been the spectacular performance by Jade Carey. Competing as an individual after earning a nominative berth through the World Cup circuit, Carey earned a spot in the vault and floor exercise finals and only missed out on the all-around due to the rules that limit finals to two athletes per country.
Carey’s decision to pursue an individual berth is symbolic of the depth the Americans have enjoyed during their rise to supremacy. Yet they no longer appear to have the market cornered on excellence.
ROC’s performance’s offered proof that the former gymnastics superpower is in the midst of a resurgence led by 21-year-old Angelina Melnikova. Even better, the Russians survived the balance beam relatively unscathed.
The 4-inch piece of wood set 4 feet off the ground has been the place where the country’s gold-medal hopes have gone to die in recent years, yet there were no major issues during qualifying. The only serious miscue came when Lilia Akhaimova fell off during the end of an acrobatic series. No biggie. The Russians were allowed to drop her score.
Things will be different in the finals, when the margin for error disappears. While Melnikova stressed she didn’t want to forecast what might with a medal on the line, she believes what has long been a walkover for the Americans will turn into something far more compelling.
“We hope that (we win),” Melnikova said. “We’re also going to struggle and fight. We have to. That’s the expectation for us.”
And suddenly, it looks doable.
Dressel wins US Olympic swimming gold; Aussie beats Ledecky
TOKYO (AP) Caeleb Dressel got started on his quest for six gold medals in swimming, while Katie Ledecky found herself in a very unusual position.
Dressel led off a U.S. victory in the men’s 4×100-meter freestyle relay Monday at the Tokyo Olympics, easing a bit of America’s sting from Ledecky’s first Olympic loss.
Australian Ariarne Titmus – nicknamed the “Terminator” – lived up to her billing when she chased down Ledecky in the 400 freestyle to win one of the most anticipated races of the Summer Games.
Titmus, who trailed by nearly a full body-length at the halfway mark of the eight-lap race, turned on the speed to touch in 3 minutes, 56.69 seconds. It was the second-fastest time in history, surpassed only by Ledecky’s world record of 3:56.46 from the 2016 Rio Games.
The defending Olympic champion settled for the silver this time in 3:57.36 — the fourth-fastest time ever recorded and her best performance in three years.
Just not good enough.
“I fought tooth and nail,” Ledecky said. “She definitely swam a really smart race. She was really controlled up front. I felt pretty smooth and strong going out and flipped at the 300 and it was like, `Oh, she’s right there.'”
And then she was gone.
For the first time in her brilliant Olympic career, Ledecky felt the sting of defeat, dished out by a rival from Down Under who made it clear she was not intimidated by the American star.
“It’s probably the biggest thing you could pull off in your sporting career,” Titmus said, “so I’m over the moon.”
No one else was even close. The bronze went to China’s Li Bingjie in 4:01.08.
Then the spotlight shifted to Dressel, who has been hailed as the successor to Michael Phelps.
Dressel put the U.S. out front, and the three who followed him in the relay made sure it stood up.
“I felt good the whole way, I knew I had to get my hand in the wall first and get some clean water,” Dressel said. “And everyone did their job. It’s a relay for a reason, it’s four guys for a reason, it’s certainly not just me. It’s certainly not just one guy.”
The 24-year-old, tattooed Floridian swam the first leg in a blistering 47.26. Blake Pieroni and Bowe Becker kept the Americans out front before Zach Apple turned in an anchor leg of 46.69 to leave no doubt at the end.
The U.S. won in 3:08.97, the third-fastest time in history. Italy took the silver in 3:10.11, with the bronze going to Australia in 3:10.22.
“The scariest part was my leg for myself, because I had control over that,” Dressel said. “I knew they were going to get the job done, I wasn’t scared at all. Especially when Zach hit the water. I saw him break out and I knew it was over.”
Apple climbed from the pool to an embrace from Dressel, who is set for a grueling schedule of three individual events and three relays in Tokyo.
One down, five to go.
Ledecky’s disappointment was a downer for the Americans, who won six of 12 medals on Sunday but were shut out in the first two finals Monday.
Torri Huske and Michael Andrew just missed medals with fourth-place finishes, then it was Ledecky settling for the second spot on the podium – a stunner for perhaps the greatest women’s freestyle swimmer in history.
Ledecky lost an individual Olympic final for the first time after winning the 800 free at the 2012 London Games, then capturing three more golds in the 200, 400 and 800 free at Rio de Janeiro five years ago.
“I knew it was going to be a battle to the end,” Ledecky said. “I didn’t feel like I died. She just had that faster 50 or 75. Can’t get much better than that.”
Titmus was every bit the Terminator at the end.
“Honestly, at the 200 I was a little bit worried,” the Aussie said. “I knew she would be there. No one is going to come to the Olympics and catch a Katie Ledecky unprepared. I guess I just had to trust myself.
“I tried to stay as composed as I could and use the easy speed that I have. And to pull it off in the back end against someone who has an amazing second half of her race, I’m really proud of that. “
Ledecky will get another crack at Titmus in the 200 free, and the American is heavily favored to repeat in the 800 and add another gold in the 1,500 – a new event for the women at these games.
After racing each other right in the middle of the pool, the swimmers clasped hands when it was over.
They climbed out of the pool together, giving each other a hug.
“I just thanked her,” Titmus said. “She’s set this standard for middle-distance freestyle. If I didn’t have someone like her to chase I definitely wouldn’t be swimming the way I am.”
Perhaps the surest bet at the pool, Britain’s Adam Peaty repeated as Olympic champion in the men’s 100 breaststroke.
Peaty was the world-record holder and the first man to break both 58 and 57 seconds in his signature event. He posted the fifth-fastest time in history (57.37) to blow away the field.
Arno Kamminga of the Netherlands claimed the silver in 58.00, while the bronze went to Italy’s Nicolo Martinenghi in 58.33. Andrew was next in 58.84.
In the first final of the day, Maggie MacNeil captured gold for Canada in the 100 butterfly.
The reigning world champion touched first in 55.59, beating Zhang Yufei of China (55.64) for the top spot. Emma McKeon of Australia took the bronze in 55.72, edging the 18-year-old Huske by one-hundredth of a second.
Huske went out fast, as is her style, and appeared to be in front with about 10 meters to go. But she faded on her final strokes and just missed a spot on the podium.
Defending champion and world-record holder Sarah Sjostrom of Sweden was seventh.
‘”‘I knew the challenge for me would be win one race then get ready for the next one,” said Sjostrom, who had a metal plate and six screws inserted to hold her right arm together after a February fall.
“I did everything I physically could, all the mental preparations. I couldn’t do anything more.”
Stewart’s walkoff HR lifts US over Japan 2-1 for 5-0 record
YOKOHAMA, Japan (AP) Kelsey Stewart has a knack for walkoff hits in Japan.
Stewart hit a game-ending home run leading off the seventh inning, and the United States rallied late to beat Japan 2-1 Monday and win the Olympic softball group stage – and with it the right to bat last in the gold medal game.
“It’s like you dream about when you’re a little kid, about hitting a home run at the Olympics, let alone a walkoff,” Stewart said.
In August 2018, Stewart’s single capped a three-run 10th inning off Japan ace Yukiko Ueno that gave the U.S. a 7-6 win at the Women’s Softball World Championship in Chiba, earning the Olympic berth.
She had been 1 for 12 with no RBIs at the Olympics before she drove the 98th pitch from Yamato Fujita (0-1) just over the glove of leaping right fielder Yuka Ichiguchi for the first U.S. home run of the tournament.
“She was starting to wear down because she had so many pitches on her arm,” Stewart said.
American players ran onto the field to celebrate their second straight walkoff win.
“I knew she was strong,” Fujita said through a translator, remembering Stewart from 2018. “I think the ball was too easy for her.”
Trying to bounce back from their 3-1 loss to Japan in the 2008 gold medal game, the Americans finished the group stage 5-0 while Japan dropped to 4-1.
Stewart’s first-inning error had led to Japan’s run. She bobbled Saku Yamazaki’s leadoff grounder to third, and following a sacrifice and Hitomii Kawabata’s single, Yamazaki scored on Aubree Munro’s passed ball.
Japan rested Yukiko Ueno, the 39-year-old who beat the U.S. in the 2008 gold medal game started by Cat Osterman, and Miu Goto. Fujita and catcher Yukiyo Mine lost track of the outs, starting to run off the field after Michelle Moultrie struck out for the second out of the third.
Fujita, a 30-year-old right-hander who had pitched just once before in the tournament, didn’t allow a hit until Haylie McCleney (an Olympics-best 9 for 14) singled to left leading off the sixth.
Janie Reed, whose husband Jake was claimed by Tampa Bay off waivers from the Los Angeles Dodgers earlier in the day, reached on an infield hit with a bouncer to shortstop for just her second hit in 13 at-bats, and Valerie Arioto hit a two-out RBI single.
Ally Carda, a 28-year-old right-hander, allowed an unearned run and four hits over 5 1/3 innings in her Olympic mound debut, striking out nine and walking none.
Monica Abbott and Osterman had combined to throw all 29 inning in the first four games.
“Ally Carda has had tremendous success against them,” U.S. coach Ken Eriksen said of Japan. “Ally was scheduled for this game as soon as the Olympic team was named, because we knew the schedule. … If we had to win this game to get into the gold medal game, Ally Carda was still going to get the ball.”
Osterman, a 38-year-old lefty, faced two lefties in the sixth and struck out both.
Abbott (3-0) pitched a perfect seventh, adding to two complete game wins and two saves.
“It was a great opportunity for us to be able to experience all three pitchers today before the gold medal game tomorrow,” Japan coach Reika Utsugi said through a translator.
A 6-foot-3 lanky left-hander, Abbott is likely to start the gold medal game scheduled for Tuesday, a day before her 36th birthday. Rain is in the forecast.
“I wouldn’t doubt that you might see four pitchers tomorrow,” Eriksen said.
AP source: Pirates trading All-Star 2B Frazier to Padres
(AP) — The Pittsburgh Pirates have agreed to trade All-Star second baseman Adam Frazier to the playoff-contending San Diego Padres for three minor leaguers, a person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity Sunday because the deal had not been announced. The trade is pending physicals. Pittsburgh is sending approximately $1.4 million to the Padres in the deal.
Frazier was the National League starter in the All-Star Game this month. He leads the majors with 125 hits and is batting .324. He’ll join a potent Padres infield that includes Fernando Tatis Jr., Manny Machado and Eric Hosmer.
Pittsburgh is receiving infielder Tucupita Marcano, outfielder Jack Suwinski and right-hander Michell Miliano in the swap. The MLB trade deadline is this Friday.
The Padres are 58-44 and third in the NL West, and hold a cushion for the second wild-card spot. The Pirates have the second-worst record in the NL.
Frazier was pulled in the eighth inning as part of a double switch in Sunday’s 6-1 loss at San Francisco.
“Nothing’s final yet. I’m sure we’ll have that sometime later tonight,” Pirates manager Derek Shelton said after the game.
“He was taken out of the game out of the abundance of caution because there are some things that are possibly going down.”
While the Pirates said nothing is official, pitcher JT Brubaker seemed to confirm a deal.
“I’m happy for the guy,” Brubaker said. “He’s going to go to a team that’s going to be in a playoff push down the stretch. Much deserved for him. All the hard work he’s put in, he’s going to go down there and continue to do the same thing. Going to give it his all. That’s who Adam Frazier is.”
Marcano is San Diego’s No. 5 prospect, according to MLB Pipeline. The 21-year-old shortstop made his big league debut this year, hitting .182 in 44 at-bats with the Padres. He was sent down to Triple-A El Paso in early June. He’s hit .272 with six home runs and 26 RBIs in 44 games for El Paso this year.
Suwinski, a 15th-round draft pick by the Padres in 2016, has hit .269 with 15 homers and 37 RBIs for Double-A San Antonio this season. The 21-year-old Miliano has made 22 relief appearances this year with two Class A teams, going 2-2 with a 3.60 ERA.
Bader, Carlson HR in 7-run 4th, Cards batter Gray, Reds 10-6
CINCINNATI (AP) Harrison Bader and Dylan Carlson homered during a seven-run burst in the fourth inning and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Cincinnati Reds 10-6 on Sunday.
Nolan Arenado hit his 20th home run and tripled, and Tyler O’Neill also connected for the Cardinals.
Cincinnati starter Sonny Gray (2-6) was tagged for a career-high eight runs, allowing eight hits and a walk in 3 1/3 innings.
“The fourth inning was more about myself,” Gray said. “I walked the first guy and it continued from there. In that moment I need to stay out there. I put the guys in a bit of a hole but the support of my teammates were there. The fight was there.”
Joey Votto homered for the second straight day as the Reds finished 3-6 on their nine-game homestand while playing all but three innings without starting All-Star right fielder Nick Castellanos, who was hit by a pitch in the third inning of the first game on July 16.
The teams combined for 18 walks, two hit batters, two ejections and four wild pitches. At 4 hours, 4 minutes, it was Cincinnati’s longest nine-inning game of the season.
The Cardinals trailed 3-2 in the fourth before the first five batters reached base, including Bader’s three-run shot halfway up the lower deck in left-center field. Bader raised his right fist in triumph as he rounded second base.
Andrew Knizner followed with a double and Carlson hit a drive deep into the visitors’ bullpen.
“Everybody put together good at-bats,” Bader said. “That’s all there is to it. The offense has the ability to click. Everybody plays their own game, but being able to wear a pitcher down is big. Everything clicked in that inning. It’s all about slowing the game down, putting together good at bats and passing the baton.”
Cardinals starter Johan Oviedo was in position for his first career win before Cincinnati loaded the bases with one out in the fifth, prompting bench coach Oliver Marmol to bring in Ryan Helsley (5-4), who got the final two outs.
Marmol was managing because Mike Shildt had been ejected in the third by umpire crew chief Ron Kulpa for arguing too long after the crew refused a request for a video review.
Oviedo finished 4 1-3 innings, allowing five hits, three runs and six walks with six strikeouts.
Cincinnati got a two-run double from Max Schrock to cut the Cardinals’ lead to 9-6, but no closer.
Bryant, Rizzo, Bote homer as Cubs beat Diamondbacks 5-1
CHICAGO (AP) Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo and David Bote homered, Trevor Williams pitched effectively into the seventh inning, and the Chicago Cubs beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-1 on Sunday.
Bryant and Bote each hit two-run shots as Chicago took two of three in the series.
Williams (4-2) struck out six and allowed five hits with no walks over 6 1/3 innings in his first scoreless outing of the season. It was the right-hander’s second start (and third appearance) since missing five weeks following an appendectomy.
“I’ve been wanting to pitch in front of a full Wrigley,” said Williams, who was making his first home start since crowd restrictions were lifted. “It’s special and I felt the energy on the mound.”
Andrew Young had a pinch-hit RBI single and Pavin Smith had two hits for the Diamondbacks, who had won five of six.
Arizona starter Caleb Smith (3-7) allowed five runs on three hits in six innings.
“I thought I threw the ball well; the results aren’t what I wanted,” Smith said. “The two walks (before the homers) are something you can’t defend.”
After Willson Contreras led off the bottom of the first with a walk, Bryant stroked an 0-1 pitch into the center-field bleachers. It was Bryant’s 17th homer and first since July 3. He is one of several Chicago players who could be traded before Friday’s deadline.
Rizzo followed with a solo shot for a 3-0 lead. It was his 240th homer with the Cubs, passing Aramis Ramirez for sixth place on the team’s career list.
“You don’t know what’s going to happen. This could be it,” Rizzo said of breaking up the core of the 2016 World Series team. “If that happens, we’ll face it. Until then, we’ll enjoy the wins.”
Bote, who was activated from the 10-day injured list before the game, added a two-run blast in the fourth to make it 5-0. Bote had been sidelined since May 30 with a dislocated left shoulder.
Young singled in David Peralta in the ninth to break the shutout.
Craig Kimbrel, another likely trade target, came on to get the final out for his 23rd save.
“These next few days, the trade market will be heating up and there’ll be a lot more rumors,” Rizzo said.
Indians rally for 3-2 win, end 11-game losing skid to Rays
CLEVELAND (AP) The Indians showed the Rays they can mount a comeback, too.
Bobby Bradley’s sacrifice fly in the eighth inning capped Cleveland’s late rally and sent the Indians to a 3-2 win on Sunday, snapping their losing streak against Tampa Bay at 11 games.
On the verge of being swept and dropping under .500 for the first time since May 1, the Indians, who managed just one run in seven innings against Rays starter Ryan Yarbrough, rallied in the eighth off reliever Matt Wisler (3-4).
“It shows character,” said Indians bench coach DeMarlo Hale, who filled in for ailing manager Terry Francona for the second straight game. “They’re not going to give up. There’s some resiliency with these guys.”
The win closed a memorable weekend for Cleveland, which included the team announcing its name will change to Guardians after this season.
The Indians also turned the tables on the Rays, who have 30 come-from-behind wins and lead the majors with 192 runs after the seventh inning.
Cesar Hernandez opened the eighth with a single before Wisler hit Amed Rosario on the hand. Harold Ramirez delivered a game-tying RBI single before Bradley hit a fly to center deep enough to score Rosario ahead of Kevin Kiermaier’s throw.
“It’s really exciting, not only for the win,” Ramirez said through a translator. “But also because over the last couple of losses they took away from our pocket, it’s very exciting to do it and for us to do it in the late innings like we did.”
Hernandez also homered for the Indians, whose playoff hopes have been fading quickly.
James Karinchak (7-2) pitched one inning and Emmanuel Clase worked the ninth for his 12th save – and first since June 16 – as the Indians improved to 6-16 in their last 22 games.
Nelson Cruz hit his second homer in three games for Tampa Bay, which fell a game behind first-place Boston in the AL East.
Cruz, who joined the Rays on Friday after the club acquired him a trade with Minnesota, connected in the sixth off Triston McKenzie for his 438th homer to tie Hall of Famer Andre Dawson for 45th place on the career list.
Cruz put the Rays ahead 2-1 in the sixth with his 21st homer of 2021, a lined solo shot to straightaway center.
“Man, he hits the ball hard,” said Rays manager Kevin Cash. “That ball is not supposed to be driven out to dead center.”
Hernandez led off the first with his 17th homer. It was the second baseman’s 18th career leadoff homer, and his fifth in 2021.
Lynch, Soler and Perez lead Royals over Tigers 6-1
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Jorge Soler hit two home runs, Salvador Perez added a three-run blast and Daniel Lynch pitched eight scoreless innings for his first major league win as the Kansas City Royals beat the Detroit Tigers 6-1 Sunday.
The Royals grabbed a 4-0 first-inning lead as Perez hit his team-leading 23rd home run and Soler followed with his 11th for the Royals, who have won fifth straight games.
It was the second straight game Perez has hit a three-run homer.
Soler hit his second home run of the day in the third inning, his fourth blast in five games.
Jarrod Dyson collected an RBI single in the seventh. The Royals finished the afternoon with eight hits and only two left on base in sweeping the three-game series.
“You don’t pitch eight major league innings without having confidence in your stuff,” Royals manager Mike Matheny said. “For him to step in against a team that has been swinging the bat really well, I am just impressed with him.”
After being recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Sunday morning, Lynch (1-2) gave up five hits and struck out four. He was the first Kansas City starter this season to toss eight innings.
“I just told myself to just go out and make pitches.” Lynch said. “Cam Gallagher caught a great game and my team played great defense.”
Eric Haas tacked on the lone run for the Tigers off of Ervin Santana in the ninth. Jake Brentz came on and closed the door on Detroit.
Tarik Skubal (6-9) gave up five runs on five hits in five innings of work with four strikeouts.
“They were aggressive on Skubal’s fastball early,” Tigers manager A.J. Hinch said. “They did a lot of damage with it.”
The longball has punished Skubal all season. He had allowed 19 entering the game.
Ohtani’s MLB-best 35th HR lifts Angels past Twins 6-2
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Shohei Ohtani hit his major league-leading 35th home run and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Minnesota Twins 6-2 Sunday.
Ohtani, who had two hits, lasered a line drive into the right-field seats for a solo homer in the sixth inning that broke a 2-all tie. The Angels overcame an early two-run deficit to take three of four games in the series.
“He just always responds. He likes the spotlight. He likes the big moments,” Angels manager Joe Maddon said.
Ohtani had four hits in his previous 17 at bats.
Max Stassi had three hits and drove in three runs for the Angels.
Max Kepler and Brent Rooker led off with back-to-back home runs for the Twins, now a season-worst 16 games under .500.
Rooker’s 436-foot drive went to the third deck in left field for a 2-0 lead.
Jaime Barria (1-0), recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake for his first start of the season, quickly put the rocky beginning behind him, allowing just two more hits in his
“He had the start the way he did, and I could sense or feel that he was starting to settle down. When we started seeing 94, 95, that’s territory I have not seen with him in the past,” Maddon said.
Through an interpreter, Barria credited the minor league staff for helping him work on the mental side of the game and staying focused
“Day by day, just trying to go out there and attack,” Barria said.
Stassi hit his first career triple in the second, homered in the fifth and singled as part of a three-run ninth. He is the fourth Angels catcher to have a home run and a triple in the same game, and first since Mike Napoli on Sept. 19, 2008.
Brandon Marsh and Jack Mayfield added final-frame RBI doubles.
Bailey Ober allowed three hits and two earned runs in a season-high 5 1-3 innings before left-handed Danny Coulombe (1-1) came on to face Ohtani. His second pitch was Ohtani’s homer.
“We probably lost a little focus as the game went on in the middle innings and didn’t have the kinds of at-bats that we aspire to,” Twins manager Rocco Baldelli said. “. It started well, but you’re not going to usually win too many games hitting solo home runs.”
Red Sox end Germán’s no-hit bid in 8th, storm past Yanks 5-4
BOSTON (AP) Domingo German was simply dominating the Boston Red Sox. Never more so than in the seventh inning, when the Yankees right-hander struck out stars J.D. Martinez, Rafael Devers, Xander Bogaerts and rookie Jarren Duran.
As German walked off the mound then with a no-hitter intact and a solid lead, there was no way to envision what was on deck.
Held hitless into the eighth by German and looking feeble, Alex Verdugo and the Red Sox suddenly erupted for five runs to shake Fenway Park and storm past New York 5-4 on Sunday.
The old ballpark was almost silent all afternoon until Verdugo opened the eighth with a long double for Boston’s first hit, and he raised his arms in celebration at second base.
By the time Kike Hernandez slid home headfirst on Xander Bogaerts’ sacrifice fly with the go-ahead run to cap the rally, fans were in a frenzy.
“I felt like just getting that hit out of the way had everybody just take that big deep breath, didn’t have to worry about getting no-hit anymore,” Verdugo said. “That inning was crazy. From going no-hit to seven innings, to putting five up in the eighth, that’s one of the craziest comebacks I’ve ever been a part of.”
With their major-league leading 32nd come-from-behind victory, the Red Sox reclaimed first place in the AL East, a game ahead of Tampa Bay. It was their 10th win in 13 games this year against their rivals, and erased a tough 4-3 loss on Saturday when New York scored four times in the eighth.
What a difference a few hits made. Before those, Red Sox manger Alex Cora, it was pretty glum in the Boston dugout.
“Not great, to be honest with you,” Cora said. “Whoever says, `we’re a hit away or a baserunner away from getting this going’ … I didn’t sense that. I sensed a lot of frustrated people. (German) was amazing.”
The Yankees, meanwhile, absorbed another brutal loss in a season full of them. They dropped three of four in the series and fell nine games behind Boston.
“Really tough one, obviously. Domingo was terrific,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. “It’s a tough one we’ve got to get past. Another extremely tough one.”
Boston trailed 4-0 when Verdugo doubled to deep right, and German was lifted after the hit by Boone.
“You know to pitch a no-hitter is one of the hardest things to do in baseball,” German said through a translator. “I knew I had a no-hitter going. I was executing pitches to try and be as careful as possible. Verdugo was able to connect there. I thought it was a good pitch.”
Jonathan Loaisiga (7-4) relieved, and Boston broke loose with four straight hits. Hunter Renfroe had an RBI double, Christian Vazquez singled home a run and Hernandez followed with an RBI double, cutting it to 4-3.
Zack Britton relieved and pinch-hitter Kevin Plawecki’s groundout plated the tying run. Hernandez hustled hard and beat right fielder Greg Allen’s throw home on Bogaerts’ sacrifice fly.
“It’s a bad day for me. It’s tough,” Loaisiga said through a translator. “It hurts because you had the starter pitching strong. You come into the game hoping to do your job and it doesn’t work out.”
German was trying for the first no-hitter by an opponent at Fenway since Detroit’s Jim Bunning in 1958, when he retired fellow future Hall of Famer Ted Williams on a fly for the final out.
Mixing his well-spotted fastball in the mid-90 mph range with a changeup and curveball, the 28-year-old German struck out 10 and walked just one.
With a 3-0 lead, he began the seventh by fanning Duran. Bogaerts also struck out, swinging at a passed ball that prolonged the inning. German struck out Devers and Martinez, with four all strikeouts coming on third-strike swings.
There have been seven no-hitters in the majors this year, one short of the big-league record set in 1884, the first season that overhand pitching was allowed.
There were two near-misses on Saturday night: Patrick Sandoval of the Angels got his bid broken up with one out in the ninth at Minnesota, and Framber Valdez and the Houston bullpen took a try into the eighth.
Brandon Workman (1-2) earned the win and Matt Barnes got the final three outs for his 21st save.
“It was a pretty special comeback,” Hernandez said.
Rougned Odor had a solo homer and RBI single for New York. He popped up with a runner on second to end it.
Yankees infielder Gio Urshela, activated from the COVID-19 injured list before the game, had an RBI single to make it 2-0 in the fourth after Gleyber Torres doubled and advanced on a sacrifice.
Odor’s bloop, run-scoring single had made it 1-0 in the third.
Boston starter Martin Perez gave up three runs over six innings, striking out six and walking two.
Alonso, McNeil lead Mets past Blue Jays 5-4 in Hill’s debut
NEW YORK (AP) Rich Hill gave the New York Mets the reliable start they were seeking. Pete Alonso and Jeff McNeil took care of the rest.
Alonso homered again, McNeil broke a tie with a pinch-hit, two-run double and the Mets beat the Toronto Blue Jays 5-4 on Sunday in Hill’s successful debut.
Acquired from Tampa Bay in a trade Friday, the 41-year-old lefty stepped right into New York’s injury-thinned rotation and delivered for the NL East leaders.
“Today was a great win and I was happy that I was able to contribute,” Hill said.
Five relievers followed him and held Toronto to one run over four innings. Edwin Diaz struck out three in a hitless ninth, fanning cleanup batter Bo Bichette on a full-count slider with a runner on second for his 21st save.
Hill threw only 49 pitches over the first five innings and worked around three leadoff doubles, taking a four-hit shutout into the sixth before running into trouble the third time through Toronto’s power-packed lineup.
The veteran curveballer, pitching for his 11th team in 17 major league seasons, let the first three hitters reach in the sixth and was removed. He walked off the mound with the bases loaded to a warm ovation from the Citi Field crowd of 23,675.
“It was a crazy couple days,” said Hill, whose wife and son are still in Tampa, Florida. “It’s kind of a whirlwind.”
Seth Lugo (3-1) allowed all three inherited runners to score, two on Bichette’s single, as the Blue Jays took a 3-1 lead. But then Lugo limited the damage, and Alonso tied it in the bottom half with a two-run drive off reliever Ryan Borucki.
The slugger looked at teammates with palms up as he began rounding the bases, and playfully celebrated by carrying the club’s stuffed home run horse through the dugout.
Alonso hit three homers to help New York take two of three in the series. He has five home runs since the All-Star break, when he repeated as Home Run Derby champion.
“I don’t know if the derby played a role in it, but he’s very, very confident right now,” Mets manager Luis Rojas said.
McNeil gave New York a 5-3 lead later in the inning and extended his hitting streak to a career-high 12 games with a shot to right-center off Jacob Barnes (1-2), traded by the Mets to the Blue Jays last month.
Toronto trimmed it to 5-4 in the eighth on an RBI single by Teoscar Hernandez off Trevor May, who combined with Aaron Loup to escape a bases-loaded, one-out jam. Loup retired Cavan Biggio to end the inning.
J.D. Davis doubled for the Mets in the second and scored on Jonathan Villar’s single.
Toronto stranded nine runners, finished 14-4 in interleague play this season and fell to 2-14 against the Mets in Queens.
“It’s funny ’cause when you see a guy like Rich Hill, it looks like you should be able to hit him. But that’s what he does,” Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo said. “He’s a good pitcher and he keeps guys off balance and he makes big pitches when he has to.”
Dodgers put star OF Mookie Betts on IL with hip inflammation
LOS ANGELES (AP) The Los Angeles Dodgers placed All-Star right fielder Mookie Betts on the 10-day injured list Sunday with right hip inflammation.
In a corresponding move, the Dodgers activated right-hander Jimmy Nelson from the injured list after he recovered from a left lumbar strain.
Betts’ IL move is retroactive to Thursday and was made just before the start of Sunday’s game against the Colorado Rockies. He last started on July 17 at Colorado and last appeared in a game Monday when he made a pinch-hit appearance against the San Francisco Giants.
The Dodgers had been avoiding an IL move for Betts, initially projecting him to return on Tuesday for the start of a three-game road series against the San Francisco Giants.
Betts is batting .270 this season with an .876 OPS and has 14 home runs with 40 RBIs.
Nelson, who has been on the IL twice this season, is 1-1 with the Dodgers in 20 appearances and has a 2.00 ERA.
INDIANAPOLIS INDIANS: Homers Bury Indians In Homestand Finale
INDIANAPOLIS – A pair of long home runs bookended the Toledo Mud Hens scoring frames on Sunday afternoon as the Indianapolis Indians were handed their fourth loss of the six-game series, 7-3.
Aderlin Rodriguez sparked the Mud Hens (40-30) in the first inning with a two-run, two-out home run to left field. In its next trip to the plate, a two-run ground-rule double by Renato Nunez capped a three-run second inning to give Toledo a 5-0 lead.
The Indians (34-36) scored a pair of runs in the bottom of the second inning with back-to-back sacrifice flies off the bats of Chris Sharpe and Joe Hudson. Ethan Paul then singled home Fabricio Macias as the final Indianapolis run in the fourth.
Christin Stewart tacked on insurance runs for Toledo with a dinger out to the right-field concourse in the fifth inning and ended the scoring between both teams.
All seven Mud Hens runs were scored off starter James Marvel (L, 3-3) in his 4.2-inning outing. Matt Eckelman, Indianapolis native Dillon Peters, Blake Weiman and Braeden Ogle combined for 4.1 hitless innings with just two walks surrendered.
Nolan Blackwood (W, 2-0) tossed two hitless innings as the fourth of seven pitchers used by Toledo. The Indians were held to just four baserunners in the final five innings.
The result moved Indy two games under .500 for the first time this season while Toledo improved to a season-best 10 games over the .500 mark.
The Indians embark on a 13-game road trip starting Tuesday at 8:05 PM ET at St. Paul. Neither team has named its starters.
Cameron Champ fends off heat to win 3M Open by 2 strokes
BLAINE, Minn. (AP) Cameron Champ was struggling mightily through the first half of this year, a frustrating series of performances that pointed him back to his state of mind more than any mechanical flaw.
Like many newlyweds, the 26-year-old was distracted by the delicate balance of passionately pursuing his career while still trying to carve out a healthy personal life at home. He found himself becoming much too upset by a bad round.
There sure wasn’t much for Champ to be mad about at the 3M Open.
Champ fended off dehydration and crisply putted his way to a 5-under 66 on Sunday, winning by two strokes for his third career victory.
“I just took a complete 180 in how I’m waking up every morning and how I’m reacting to certain things and adjusting to certain things,” said Champ, who had five birdies in a bogey-free round to finish at 15-under 269 at TPC Twin Cities.
Louis Oosthuizen, Jhonattan Vegas and Charl Schwartzel tied for second. Keith Mitchell was fifth at 12 under, and behind him were five players tied for sixth.
Champ joined Collin Morikawa, Jon Rahm and Bryson DeChambeau as the only under-28 players to win in each of the last three seasons on tour. He jumped from 142nd to 49th in the FedEx Cup standings, with the top 125 qualifying for the playoff opener.
This month has brought quite the turnaround for the Texas A&M product, after nine missed cuts and one withdrawal over his first 16 starts of 2021. The best finish in that stretch was a tie for 17th at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.
Champ hit the reset button after missing the cut at the Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit three weeks ago, though, and emerged with a tie for 11th at the John Deere Classic in Illinois.
“After Detroit, I just took a step back and said, `You know what? This is enough. I can’t keep going on this way. I’m not enjoying the game,'” Champ said.
His wife, Jessica, was surely happy to hear that.
“It’s more so realizing what I want to do in the game of golf and then who I want to be at home. It’s a balance you have to find, and if you don’t, it can really haunt you and it can cause a lot of issues,” Champ said. “So I just feel like the last two months I’ve been in a lot better head space.”
During another 90-degree day, Champ was far from his physical best. He felt some dizziness along the back nine, putting his hands on his knees at one point as he hung his head to try to regain some composure. He had plenty of it on the last hole, after his safe strategy with the tee shot to stay away from the lake landed way left in a trampled, sandy area directly behind a clump of trees.
Champ managed to chip out onto the primary rough, then scoot up the fairway. His approach was a beauty that landed perfectly and rolled back toward the pin. He sank the easy par putt and had enough energy to pump his arms in celebration of his first top-10 finish since last October.
“The Gatorade definitely helped, I think, keep me going,” said Champ, who won the Sanderson Farms Championship in 2019, the year he turned pro, and the Safeway Open in 2020.
He had the best putting performance of the 3M Open field, with an average of 8.48 strokes gained.
Oosthuizen shot 66, too, in a much stronger finish than the previous weekend at the British Open, where his 54-hole lead turned into a tie for third after a fourth-round 71.
Playing six pairs ahead of Champ, Oosthuizen birdied three of the last four holes to give himself an outside chance. His approach to the 18th green almost yielded an eagle on the PGA Tour’s hardest par-5 hole, but the ball lipped out. Oosthuizen made a 2 1/2 foot putt for birdie instead and his fourth runner-up finish in seven starts. Schwartzel, his fellow South African, posted a 68 to match Vegas in the final round.
“We had a good time here this week, and I’m just trying to see if I can go one better than all these seconds and thirds,” Oosthuizen said.
Cameron Tringale, a one-stroke leader after the third round, took a triple bogey on the par-3 13th hole right after consecutive birdies had brought him back into contention. He shot 74 and finished six strokes behind Champ, leaving PGA Championship winner Phil Mickelson as the only 54-hole leader or co-leader to win in the last 13 tour events.
Matthew Wolff (2019) and Michael Thompson (2020), the first two winners of the 3M Open, each finished in a tie for 39th place at 5-under.
Newly minted Olympian Patrick Reed tied for 34th at 6 under, before heading home to Texas to get ready for Tokyo. He found out Saturday he’d been added to the U.S. team after DeChambeau tested positive for COVID-19.
“Once I start an event,” Reed said, “I’m definitely going to finish the event.”
