Randy Bell pitches complete game in South Alabama's 6-3 win Randy Bell pitches complete game in South Alabama's 6-3 win
- June 06, 2017

We made them swing at our pitches with two strikes in the count. "I'm just trying to barrel something up and do what I can to help the team win". It took a few extra days but fans will finally get the matchup they've been clamoring for. Cody Brown tripled in a run in the sixth for Mississippi State (36-25) and later scored. Paul Russo later singled off Bulldogs reliever Peyton Plumlee to put runners on the corners with one out, but Carter Perkins grounded into a double play to end the inning ... (more...)
Australia-Bangladesh cricket match abandoned due to rain
- June 06, 2017

Twenty overs needed to be completed for a result and with David Warner (40 ) and skipper Smith (22) at the crease, a win seemed a formality under the Duckworth/Lewis system. "It was nice that we were able to turn things around". A top-edged pull off Hazlewood evaded mid-on when he had 76 - as had a similar miscue on 16 - and the weight of Australia's greater resources began to bear down as Adam Zampa, held back until the 35th over, struck twice in 11 balls.

Danny Lee has picked up his second top-10 finish this season on the US PGA Tour in finishing sixth at the Dean & Deluca Invitational in Fort Worth, Texas . He reeled off birdies on Nos. "It's very hard for me to commit every shot". "I let Damon down today". "I didn't play well at Byron my first couple of years, so I just made a decision to stay out of Texas", Simpson joked.

Andy Murray not holding out much hope for a tennis-loving daughter Andy Murray not holding out much hope for a tennis-loving daughter
- June 06, 2017

Murray's wife Kim and Sophia are with him in Paris as he continues his French Open campaign, which on Monday brought a 6-3 6-4 6-4 win over Karen Khachanov in the fourth round. The three-time Grand Slam champion has never won at Roland Garros, and never faced unseeded Russian Karen Khachanov , either. Rohan Bopanna and his Canadian partner Gabriela Dabrowski stormed into the semi-finals of the mixed doubles event of the French Open with a straight-set upset win over the duo of Sania ... (more...)
Cavaliers hope to make U-turn with return home
- June 06, 2017

But as I said here on Friday , a 20-point and 10-point win hit the books with equal force, if not the same optics. "It was probably the key to the whole game". And if Thompson's shot is falling like it did in Game 2 there may be no answer. But so far, it's not. "If you make a mistake". Green famously lost his cool in Game 4 a year ago, pulling out the rug from the Warriors' march to the title. (more...)
JJ Watt finally has a good tweet JJ Watt finally has a good tweet
- June 06, 2017

There's no doubt that Texans' defensive star J.J. Watt is a force to be reckoned with, but he didn't make an impact at all last season. After missing out nearly the entire 2016 season due to injury, Watt was included on the list at No. Watt, a three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year, missed 13 regular-season games and two playoff games last season because of a back injury that required surgery.

Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant Take Turns at LeBron James

Yet Durant , Andre Iguodala , Klay Thompson and the others kept the pressure on the Cavs. He's Kevin Durant , who followed up his impressive Game 1 performance with an equally impressive Game 2 performance: 33 points, 13 rebounds , six assists , five blocks and three steals. (more...)

Nadal, en route to a possible 10th Roland Garros championship, has been almost invincible in the tournament so far, breezing through the first four rounds without dropping a set. Meanwhile, reigning women's champion Garbine Muguruza had to leave her press conference in tears yesterday following a feisty encounter with French No 1 Kiki Mladenovic. (more...)
Senators bounce back to beat Penguins, force Game 7
- June 06, 2017

There. Now that I got that out of my system. "You know, if you think the right way and you go into games knowing how to execute, knowing what you want to do, good things can happen". The nervousness grew through the second period as Pittsburgh controlled the play . "We're going to try to do our best to deny scoring chances". May 22: Predators bounce the Ducks with a 6-3 win in Game 6. (more...)

Gareth Bale celebrates UEFA Champions League title at home Gareth Bale celebrates UEFA Champions League title at home
- June 06, 2017

Our passing and movement was fantastic. In assists, last term's joint leader Neymar finished top outright this time with eight assists, having a hand in 12 goals overall as well as scoring four himself. I'm a happy man to win the 12th and we'll enjoy this moment now. Kick-off at the Principality Stadium was delayed by two minutes due to an elaborate pre-match ceremony involving American pop act the Black Eyed Peas and when play got under way, Juve settled first.

PK Subban is pretty confident the Nashville Predators will win Game 3 PK Subban is pretty confident the Nashville Predators will win Game 3
- June 06, 2017

It was easy for Guentzel to be overlooked during the regular season on a team full of superstars, elite scorers, and Stanley Cup champions. Then it's way too much. The Predators bounced back from that and eventually tied it in the third period before Rinne allowed the game-winner. This was the downfall of the Preds, as Guentzel scored his second goal of the game a mere ten seconds into the period. (more...)
Dubs take 2-0 lead to Cleveland Dubs take 2-0 lead to Cleveland
- June 06, 2017

After 13 turnovers in the first half, the Warriors simplified their offensive attack and stopped turning the ball over (only 3 in the third quarter and 7 total for the second half). And we forced them to 20 turnovers, and they still beat us pretty good. "He's a reason why we're able to be who we are", Warriors teammate Shaun Livingston said. (more...)

We offer our thoughts, prayers and condolences to his parents, Rose and Earl; his fiancée, Jackie; his brothers, Tommy and Roger; his sisters, Jenny and Kathleen; and to all his friends, teammates and legions of fans around the world. A number of tributes have been paid to Hayden. Pedrosa wrote: "Always in my heart, champ".

Ko has been No. 1 for 84 consecutive weeks and 103 weeks overall. Projections released last week by the LPGA showed that second-ranked Thai golfer Ariya Jutanugarn , also absent in New Jersey, would move ahead of Ko if Korea's world No.3 So Yeon Ryu finished fourth or worse at the three-round tournament.

Murray ousts del Potro and his 'very manly grunt' at French
- June 06, 2017

Yet two days on and the towering Argentine national hero, a former US Open victor whose career has been blighted by a wrist injury and a series of unfortunate ailments, was requiring his own comfort blanket after his spirit was broken and bruised by Andy Murray recapturing the opulent levels that make him the world number one he is.

Garcia sets up all-French 4th round in Paris Garcia sets up all-French 4th round in Paris
- June 06, 2017

Eighth seed Kei Nishikori led Hyeon Chung by two sets to one, but appeared likely to lose the fourth with his opponent a double-break up. Play has been suspended for the day at the French Open because of rain. He whipped 31 winners past the helpless Spaniard, who at 35 was the oldest player left in the draw and whose big serve lost some of its edge due to humid and cloudy conditions. (more...)

Each also has been fined an undisclosed amount, Major League Baseball announced on Tuesday. Both are appealing their suspensions, meaning they are eligible to play Tuesday night. Harper, 24, pointed his bat at Strickland and charged towards him, throwing his helmet to the ground as he ran. If they want to keep talking about it, then can. (more...)

- June 06, 2017

Novak Djokovic says the decision to begin working with Agassi came after he realised something had to change if he was to maintain a level of success throughout his career. The defending champion, making his 50th successive Grand Slam appearance, eased into the second round at Roland Garros with a 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 victory over Spain's Marcel Granollers . (more...)
