MLB – Major League Baseball Last Night Detroit Tigers 7, Texas Rangers 3 Houston Astros 4, Chicago White Sox 3 Atlanta Braves 6, Chicago Cubs 0 Tigers 7, Rangers 3 – Grossman leads Tigers past Rangers 7-3 for series split Robbie Grossman homered and drove in four runs as the Detroit Tigers beat the Texas Rangers 7-3 to split the four-game series. The Tigers and their league-worst offense scored five or more runs in consecutive games for the first time this season. Detroit had lost six straight before winning 14-7 Saturday. For the second day in a row, the Rangers hit a homer in the first — this time, it was Corey Seager — only to let Grossman homer during a three-run reply in the bottom of the inning. Astros 4, White Sox 3 – Matijevic homers for 1st MLB hit, Astros beat White Sox 4-3 Rookie J.J. Matijevic homered for his first major league hit and Mauricio Dubón added a two-run shot to power the Houston Astros to a 4-3 win over the Chicago White Sox. The Astros bounced back from a 7-0 shutout Saturday to get a 2-1 series win. The victory breaks a tie between Houston manager Dusty Baker and Chicago manager Tony La Russa, giving the 73-year-old Baker a 106-105 edge against the 77-year-old La Russa in regular-season matchups dating to 1996. Braves 6, Cubs 0 – Anderson, Olson lead Braves over Cubs, avoid 1st 3-game skid Ian Anderson pitched three-hit ball into the seventh inning, Matt Olson hit three doubles and the Atlanta Braves beat the Chicago Cubs 6-0. Travis d'Arnaud and Michael Harris II homered for the defending World Series champion Braves, who avoided their first three-game losing streak of the season. The Braves, who arrived in Chicago with a 14-game win streak, went 21-8 in a stretch of 29 straight games against teams that were under .500 at the time of the matchup. Tonight Chicago Cubs (Kilian 0-1) at Pittsburgh (Brubaker 0-7), 7:05 p.m. Detroit (Faedo 1-3) at Boston (Winckowski 1-1), 7:10 p.m.                  WSJM/WCSY 6:50 Toronto (Berríos 5-2) at Chicago White Sox (Lynn 0-0), 8:10 p.m. NHL – National Hockey League – 2022 Stanley Cup Finals Tonight Colorado Avalanche at Tampa Bay Lightning, 8:00 p.m.       (COL Leads 2-0) NHL – Lightning may be running out of gas vs fresher Avalanche It's no secret Tampa Bay has played more hockey over the past two years than any other team in the NHL. That may finally be taking a toll on the two-time defending champs against the Colorado Avalanche, who took a much shorter route to the Stanley Cup Final. The Avalanche now lead the best-of-seven series 2-0 going into Game 3 Monday at Tampa Bay. The Lightning have played 67 postseason games since Aug. 1, 2020. That is the most by one team over the span of three playoffs. Players and coach Jon Cooper refuse to use that as an excuse. WNBA – Women's National Basketball Association Yesterday Indiana Fever 89, Chicago Sky 87 Fever 90, Sky 87 – Smith scores career-high 26, Fever rally, beat Sky 89-87 NaLyssa Smith scored a career-high 26 points — including a go-ahead three-point play in the closing seconds to help the Indiana Fever erase a 15-point second-half deficit and beat the Chicago Sky 89-87. Smith was fouled as she hit a turn-around jumper from the left block and made the free throw to give the Fever an 88-87 lead with 39 seconds left. Chicago missed two shots on the other end before Victoria Vivians was fouled with 7.8 seconds remaining. She made 1-of-2 free throws to give the Fever a two-point lead. After the Sky called a timeout, Courtney Vandersloot missed a short baseline jumper and the Fever held on. Chicago's Candace Parker missed her second consecutive game due to an knee injury. Golf – US Open – Fitzpatrick a winner again at Brookline as US Open champion Matt Fitzpatrick is a champion again at The Country Club. And this time he has one of the grandest trophies in golf.

Harold Castro went deep twice earlier as Tigers dodged another sweep and broke a six-game winning streak by the Twins. The Tigers have 25 homers in 43 games for the fewest in baseball. Trevor Larnach hit a two-run homer for the Twins in the fourth inning to spoil an otherwise-stellar start by Rony García pieced together by Tigers relievers. White Sox 3, Red Sox 1 – Burger's homer off Hill lifts White Sox over Red Sox Jake Burger hit a three-run homer off Rich Hill, Lucas Giolito overcame a shaky first inning and the Chicago White Sox beat the Red Sox 3-1 to end Boston's six-game winning streak.

Burger, recalled Tuesday from Triple-A Charlotte after Luis Robert was placed on the COVID-19 injured list, hit an 0-2 breaking pitch in the fifth inning that traveled an estimated 444 feet.

Harold Castro went deep twice earlier as Tigers dodged another sweep and broke a six-game winning streak by the Twins. The Tigers have 25 homers in 43 games for the fewest in baseball. Trevor Larnach hit a two-run homer for the Twins in the fourth inning to spoil an otherwise-stellar start by Rony García pieced together by Tigers relievers. White Sox 3, Red Sox 1 – Burger's homer off Hill lifts White Sox over Red Sox Jake Burger hit a three-run homer off Rich Hill, Lucas Giolito overcame a shaky first inning and the Chicago White Sox beat the Red Sox 3-1 to end Boston's six-game winning streak. The White Sox won for the fourth time in six games. Burger, recalled Tuesday from Triple-A Charlotte after Luis Robert was placed on the COVID-19 injured list, hit an 0-2 breaking pitch in the fifth inning that traveled an estimated 444 feet. Giolito threw 27 pitches in the first but still allowed fewer than two runs for the fourth time this season. Hill held the White Sox hitless through four innings but lost his lead quickly. Reds 4, Cubs 3 – Votto homers, triples, shouts at reliever as Reds beat Cubs Joey Votto homered and tripled, then shouted at Cubs reliver Rowan Wick during a tense ending to the Cincinnati Reds' 4-3 win over Chicago. Votto had a solo homer in the second inning off Kyle Hendricks and a two-run triple in the third as Cincinnati ended a two-game skid. Wick brushed back the 16-year veteran in the eighth, then walked him. Votto barked at Wick as he made his way to first base, and he also had words for Chicago's dugout. An inning later, Reds reliever Hunter Strickland plunked Patrick Wisdom. Cubs manager David Ross was ejected by plate umpire Dan Merzel after leaving the dugout to protest.

Rodriguez lasted just one out and averaged 91.9 mph for his fastball, 2.4 mph below his season average, and left the mound with Tigers head athletic trainer Doug Teter. Drew Rasmussen allowed four hits in five shutout innings with seven strikeouts and no walks, improving to 4-0 with a 1.01 ERA in his last five starts. Royals 6, White Sox 2 – Witt homers off Giolito, Melendez connects as KC tops Chisox Bobby Witt Jr. and MJ Melendez homered and fellow rookie Emmanuel Rivera hit a go-ahead triple to lead the Kansas City Royals over the Chicago White Sox 6-2. Witt, Melendez and Rivera each had two hits. Rivera's sinking liner escaped a diving Adam Engel for a triple that drove in Melendez with the tiebreaking run in the sixth. In his return from the COVID-19-related injured list, Giolito labored early, needing 54 pitches to complete the first two innings, allowing four hits and two walks. After Witt's leadoff homer in the third, Giolito struck out six of the next seven batters and permitted only a pair of singles before being lifted after five innings. Pirates 3, Cubs 2 – Chicago-born rookie Suwinski homers, lifts Pirates over Cubs Rookie Jack Suwinski, who attended high school 20 minutes from Wrigley Field, hit a tiebreaking home run and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Cubs 3-2, ending Chicago's four-game winning streak. Suwinski made his major league debut this season and began the day hitting .183 with two homers. With the score 2-all, the 23-year-old outfielder from Taft High School opened the fifth inning with a drive off Drew Smyly that barely cleared the center field wall. Michael Chavis' single in the third snapped the Pirates' scoreless streak of 20 innings. They scored in the eighth inning of Sunday's 1-0 win over the Reds despite being no-hit by Hunter Greene and Art Warren, then lost 9-0 and 7-0 earlier this week at Wrigley Field.

The Most Memorable Sports Moments of 2021

In some ways, 2021 might have felt a bit like a reboot of 2020, but there were so many moments to be excited about. Let's look back before diving headfirst into 2022.1. The college sports landscape changed forever with the July ruling that allowed athletes to be paid for their name, image and likeness (NIL). Athletes like the Cavinder twins who play women's basketball at Fresno State were the first to take advantage of the ruling. Some athletes like Michigan running back Blake Corum and Iowa lineman Tyler Linderbaum used their NIL money to benefit a good cause, not just their wallets. 2. Mental health became a dinner table topic thanks to athletes like Simone Biles (gymnastics), Naomi Osaka (tennis) and Lane Johnson (NFL). Johnson took a leave from the Philadelphia Eagles to face his battle with depression head-on. Osaka withdrew from the French Open and Wimbledon to focus on her well-being. But the world saw just how the pressure impacted an athlete when Simone Biles battled the "twisties" in the Summer Olympics. She put her safety and her team first, withdrawing from the women's gymnastics all-around competition. 3. Sports fans continued to realize what so many already knew, women's sports are the place to be. Not only did viewer ratings soar for the WNBA (Women's National Basketball Association), women's college basketball championship game and the NWSL (National Women's Soccer League), but we saw the first college softball game on a major national network. The NFL and MLB (Major League Baseball) added more female coaches and front-office executives. In 2022, look for the women's college basketball tournament to use the coveted "March Madness" title for the first time. 4. The year brought us athletes who seem to get better with age. Tom Brady won the Super Bowl with his new team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (NFL – National Football League), in February at age 43. (And then celebrated with maybe one too many shots at the championship boat parade). At 46, Helio Castroneves won the Indy 500, and Phil Mickelson showed off his impressive 50-year-old calves on his way to a PGA (Professional Golfers Association) Championship win.   5. The delayed 2020 Summer Olympics gave the world the positivity and excitement we'd all been missing. COVID precautions meant athletes' families had to watch from the comfort of their couches, too, but the stories of athletes like Caeleb Dressel, Suni Lee and Katie Ledecky all brought us to our feet. The US topped the medal count with 113 total medals, 39 gold, including one from the US Men's Basketball Team, who continued their medal streak. Bonus: If you're a fan of F1 (Formula One) Racing, then you likely caught the race of the century when Max Verstappen beat out seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton for the 2021 championship. But did you know that Hamilton, the only Black F1 driver, is also a fan of fashion? He purchased a table at the Met Gala, which runs around $275,000, and filled it with three emerging Black designers to grow their reach.

Life As An NBA Referee

Sports Curious

If you like being the boss, following the rules and look good in black and white stripes, then maybe a career shift is in order? 1. While you're going to have to work your way up through the system, NBA (National Basketball Association) referees take home anywhere between $150,000-$550,000, depending on experience. NBA referees have the potential to make more than the highest-paid WNBA – Women's National Basketball Association - player. (Highest annual salary in the WNBA is $221,450). Refs receive bonuses for officiating playoff games and the dollar amount depends on the importance of the game (i.e. you make more money working the finals). 2. Remember Billy Crystal traveling the nation as an NBA referee in the movie Forget Paris? It wasn't his best flick but like his character, referees travel for work 25 days a month for eight months. That equates to calling 65-70 games in an 82-game season, not including playoffs. 3. Imagine being called out by your boss every time you present in a meeting. That's what happens to the referees in the NBA's two minute reports. The public report critiques the referees' calls within the last two minutes of the game and overtime. The refs also review tape after games to make sure they're at the top of their game. 4. It's not all mental. They have to be physically fit too because they're running up and down the court for the entire 48 minutes alongside the players. Referees work on their fitness regimen in the off-season as any athlete would and they train their brains by utilizing virtual reality. And unlike the players, referees have a vaccination mandate. 5. Look out men, the women are taking the court, and technically, they're in charge. Danielle Scott, the daughter of a college basketball official, becomes the sixth full-time female referee this season. That's the most women the NBA has ever had on its officiating staff at one time.

NFL – National Football League – Week 6 Last Night Cincinnati Bengals 34, Detroit Lions 11 Green Bay Packers 24, Chicago Bears 14 Indianapolis Colts 31, Houston Texans 3 Bengals 34, Lions 11 – Joe Burrow throws 3 TDs as Bengals rout Lions 34-11 Joe Burrow tied a career high with three touchdown passes, helping the Cincinnati Bengals rout the Detroit Lions 34-11 Sunday. The Bengals already have four wins to equal last year's total and to double their victories from 2019 during coach Zac Taylor's debut season. Detroit is the NFL's only winless team. The Lions could not rally as they did in closely contested setbacks against San Francisco, Baltimore and Minnesota. They failed to score until Austin Seibert made a 35-yard field goal midway through the fourth quarter. Packers 24, Bears 14 – Rodgers throws 2 TDs, runs for 1 as Packers beat Bears 24-14 Aaron Rodgers threw for two touchdowns and ran for another, leading the Green Bay Packers to a 24-14 victory over the Chicago Bears. The Packers (5-1) beat the Bears (3-3) for the 20th time in 23 games counting the playoffs and improved to 22-5 with Rodgers as the starter against Chicago. They also prevented Chicago from tying them for the NFC North lead. Rodgers shook off a sluggish start, throwing a 1-yard touchdown to Allen Lazard in the second quarter and a 12-yarder to Aaron Jones in the third. Rodgers put the Bears away after Justin Fields threw a 5-yard touchdown to Darnell Mooney as he scored from the 6 to cap a 75-yard drive. Colts 31, Texans 3 – Indianapolis gets in sync with 31-3 victory over Houston Carson Wentz threw two touchdown passes and Jonathan Taylor ran for another score for the Colts in a 31-3 dismantling of the Texans. Wentz threw a 28-yard TD pass to Mo Alie-Cox for a advantage in 17-3 third-quarter. The Colts have followed an 1-3 start with consecutive wins, and Houston has dropped five in a row since a season-opening win.

Courtney Vandersloot added 10 points and 15 assists for the Sky, who won the series 3-1, rallying from a 72-65 deficit with 4:42 left. Chicago scored the next nine points to take a two-point lead on Stefanie Dolson's layup. She added another basket to make it 76-72 with 45.8 seconds left. Vandersloot then scored in the lane to seal the win setting off the celebration. As the final buzzer sounded, Parker sprinted to the corner of the court and hugged her family with tears in her eyes.

NHL – National Hockey League – Season Opener Last Night Colorado Avalanche 4, Chicago Blackhawks 2 Avalanche 4, Blackhawks 2 – Byram gets first NHL goal, Avalanche beat Blackhawks 4-2 Bowen Byram scored his first NHL goal and added an assist to lead the short-handed Colorado Avalanche to a 4-2 win over the Chicago Blackhawks. Nazem Kadri and Gabriel Landeskog each had a goal and an assist for Colorado, which played without star center Nathan MacKinnon and head coach Jared Bednar. Both are in the COVID-19 protocol and away from the team. Assistant coaches Ray Bennett and Nolan Pratt led the team. Darcy Kuemper stopped 32 shots in his Avalanche debut and Jack Johnson added a goal. Kuemper, acquired from Arizona in the offseason, wasn't tested early but made two big saves on Kirby Dach in the second period. Dach had a breakaway at 12:02, but Kuemper closed the pads on his shot. Minutes later, he had another wide-open chance from the left circle that Kuemper stopped. Tonight Tampa Bay Lightning at Detroit Red Wings, 7:30 p.m. NFL – National Football League – Week 6 Tonight Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Philadelphia Eagles, 8:20 p.m. NFL – Lions coach Campbell says Ragnow feels guilty about surgery Detroit Lions coach Dan Campbell says center Frank Ragnow feels guilty about having season-ending toe surgery. Campbell says Wednesday that the surgery went well, adding Ragnow does not need to feel bad about doing the right thing for his long-term future. Ragnow was hurt earlier this month at Chicago and went on injured reserve last week. Center Evan Brown made his first career start in Sunday's loss at Minnesota. The Lions signed Ragnow to a $54 million, four-year extension in May that keeps him under contract through the 2026 season. The Lions host the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. NFL – Fields understands rivalries going into game against Packers Chicago Bears rookie quarterback Justin Fields is getting his first taste of the rivalry against the Green Bay Packers, a lopsided one since Aaron Rodgers became a starter, and it's not a new situation for him considering Fields played in the Michigan-Ohio State rivalry. Fields' passing numbers haven't been up to the kind his counterpart has put up, but he said he's more interested in getting the win than statistics as the Bears try to end a four-game Green Bay winning streak in the series. MLB – Major League Baseball – Division Series – (Best of 5) Tonight Los Angeles Dodgers at San Francisco Giants, 9:07 p.m.             (Series tied 2-2) MLB – After another early exit, White Sox shift focus to future The Chicago White Sox are shifting focus toward next season after they were eliminated in convincing fashion by Houston in an AL Division Series. Another early exit wasn't what they envisioned. The White Sox thought they were in position to make a run in October with stars like José Abreu and Tim Anderson and Hall of Fame manager Tony La Russa back for a second stint. Chicago ran away with the AL Central, only to get pushed around by the Astros. Abreu says the White Sox “did our best" and Houston was “better.” MLB – Playoff series for the ages as Dodgers, Giants go to Game 5 Everybody expected a playoff series for the ages between the century-old rival Dodgers and Giants, and now they've got it. Anything less than a winner-take-all Game 5 would have been a baseball travesty, leaving the sport short-changed on the October stage. It's the 107-win, NL West champion Giants vs. the defending World Series champ Los Angeles Dodgers for a place in the NL Championship Series against Atlanta starting Saturday night. It all comes down to Game 5 on Thursday night, back at the San Francisco's Oracle Park after the Dodgers staved off elimination with a 7-2 victory at home Tuesday night.

Detroit scored the go-ahead 2-point conversion try with 37 seconds left. Joseph made four field goals as the Vikings casually played the field position game until the extra-safe strategy nearly cost them. Alexander Mattison fumbled on a third-and-7 run from the Minnesota 21 right after the 2-minute warning with Detroit out of timeouts. The Lions took the lead on a TD and Campbell's gamble. Bears 20, Raiders 9 – Fields throws 1st TD pass, Bears' defense dominates in Vegas Justin Fields threw his first career touchdown pass, and the Chicago Bears' defense largely shut down the Las Vegas Raiders' high-powered offense in a 20-9 victory.

The Vikings then moved in position for the winning field goal on the final play for a 19-17 victory. Campbell held back tears in his postgame news conference as he discussed the disappointment of defeat. The winless Lions lost to Baltimore by an identical score two weeks ago.
