Indians' Corey Kluber placed on 10-day DL


The Indians turned a rare 6-3-5 double play in the fourth. Hamels was scratched from his scheduled start for Texas against Houston because of tightness in his right oblique. Miguel Cabrera retuned from the DL and launched a 2-run home run in the third inning. He's struck out 20, including four on Wednesday night. He has 34 strikeouts with just seven walks in 35 innings of work. Read More »

Warriors throttle Spurs to take 2-0 series lead


Pachulia has gotten a reputation for being a dirty player throughout his National Basketball Association career, though Popovich wasn't all that concerned with whether or not the center tried to injure Leonard. It's been happening forever, since I've been in the league. "Zaza's not a dirty player. I just love this game, and I play hard". You ever hear of manslaughter? Popovich lost to good friend and old pupil Mike Brown, filling in as Warriors acting coach for the ailing Steve Kerr - ... Read More »

Craig Shakespeare says he expects to be told within days whether he will remain as Leicester manager. Read More »

LaVar Ball: Lonzo Ball will only work out for Lakers

The Suns have the second best odds at the No. 1 pick (19.9 percent) and the Lakers have the third best odds at the No. 1 pick (15.6). While Brown made an impact this season with his athleticism and high basketball I.Q., the other two could be far removed from their chance to play on an NBA roster. Read More »

Richie Towell to go out on loan from Brighton


Former Irish global Hughton, however, plans to send the 25-year-old Dubliner on loan to a Championship club next season to give him some valuable game time that was so lacking this season. However, Hughton has stated how impressed he is with Towell, and with the 25-year old having a point to prove to his parent-club, Barnsley could benefit from signing the Irishman. Read More »

Browns statements on DL Caleb Brantley


The original complaint stemmed from an April incident involving a Florida student, Chelsea Austin, who accused Brantley for punching and knocking her unconscious. Everyone will have their own opinion on the witnesses and the investigation, but Brantley will indeed be competing for a roster spot this fall. Cervone also noted that a neutral witness supported Brantley's version of events. Read More »

Real Madrid, Barca set up final day title showdown

Paul Merson states his prediction for Arsenal v Sunderland

The Gunners are now one point above Manchester United and three behind Manchester City in fourth. The away side have been at the bottom for most of the season, losing 24 of their 36 matches, winning just six. "Unfortunately for us it's not the case now but the only thing we can have a chance is to influence our own results and keep going". But while Wenger's name was sung out heartily by supporters inside Stoke's stadium early in the game a plane flew overhead carrying a banner calling ... Read More »

Swanson hits tiebreaking HR, Braves beat Blue Jays 9-5


Colon's ERA is now 7.22 - which is bad. Travis added his second double of the game in the sixth giving him the most doubles in a month by a Blue Jays second baseman. "We haven't had a clunker in a while, and if we did, we haven't had many of them". Nick Markakis and Freddie Freeman drove in six runs to lead the Braves as Atlanta defeated the Toronto Blue Jays 10-6 on Monday night at Rogers Centre. Read More »

Celtics Win Draft Lottery for #1 Pick in the June Draft


The Celtics will go from No.1 seed to No.1 pick after their 25 per cent chance of winning came through today. One imagines they will eventually move on from Isaiah Thomas, though they probably won't be in a hurry. This year's pick should yield a backcourt partner for Ben Simmons, already anointed the point guard by coach Brett Brown despite his 6-10 frame and the fact that, you know, he has yet to play an National Basketball Association game.

Celta Vigo v Real Madrid


Dave Thompson/APWhile Real are in sublime form, Celta come into the match on the back of the disappointment of Europa League defeat in the semi-finals against Manchester United and not having recorded a victory in LaLiga since April when they beat struggling Granada 3-0 away. Read More »

Manchester United's Paul Pogba to miss Southampton clash following father's demise


All the extra minutes logged by so many players led to numerous injuries, including season enders for Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Marcos Rojo and Luke Shaw. When you have one team prioritizing the Europa League and the other team having one of the bluntest attacks in the entire Premier League, the match is going to be a tiresome one and end in a stalemate, unlike their previous encounter in the League Cup final.

Warriors' Andre Iguodala ruled out for Game 2


Now, this is Gregg Popovich and San Antonio we're talking about, the team that historically takes pride in not allowing 3-point specialists to get comfortable beyond the arc. Scoring has to come from some place. I don't think as a group they really did, which means probably a little bit feeling sorry for themselves psychologically, subconsciously, whatever psycho-babble word you want to use. Read More »

Warriors Become Just The 5th Team To Start NBA Playoffs 10-0


Curry scored 26 of his 40 points after the break while Durant, who was hounded by Leonard for the first 28 minutes of the contest, saw things open up on the offensive end in the second half as well. Meanwhile, the Spurs are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 Conference Finals games and 7-2 ATS in their last nine games playing on three or more days' rest. Klay Thompson still didn't have a breakout game - scoring only 11 after mustering only six points in Game 1 - but he did plant a pair of 3s. Read More »

Bautista homers as Blue Jays blank Mariners 4-0

At this point, it's hard to know exactly how well Smoak will sustain the adjustments he's made so far. "I'm just getting good pitches and I'm not missing them", said the six-time all-star when asked about his hot streak. "Our bats. As good as we were going the last couple of games at home, and then picked it up in Philly...we just didn't have that (production)". Scott Schebler homered for Cincinnati, which swept a three-game series against San Francisco last weekend. Read More »

Barcelona or Bayern Munich would have sacked me by now - Guardiola


He will also end the campaign without a trophy for the first time as a coach. If I were Chelsea, they don't have to qualify for the Champions League, so it's our fault, it's not because of the opponents. I'm happy it's in our hands to finish third. "I am not going to be [wondering] all summer: 'Oh what will happen next season if I don't win some titles'". Read More »

Man United held by Southampton in 0-0 stalemate

Man United: United out to spoil Spurs' big farewell

I probably worked this season harder than ever. "If they are motivated I think we can be Manchester United because, even losing like we did against Arsenal , there are certain levels of performance and attitude that we have to keep". "I think that his dad's funeral has to be between Tuesday and Wednesday in France". 'The boys gave everything they had, I'm really pleased for them. Read More »

Rockies-Twins game postponed by stormy weather


These days, though, it doesn't seem to matter which road venue Colorado plays in. Ervin Santana and German Marquez, who had been scheduled to start on Wednesday, will face off in Game 1 of that doubleheader. Signed in February after seven pro seasons in Mexico, Velazquez is 2-1 with a 1.55 ERA in five starts with Triple-A Pawtucket. He yielded five runs on eight hits in five-plus innings. Read More »
