Hyun Jin Ryu allows three hits and an earned run, striking out six over five innings for the Blue Jays against the Rays
Imagine being able to walk around with two of golf's best for what felt like a casual round of golf. In their case, it also looked like a casual round. Woods used his putter to go over a steep slope from behind the 18th green, and he made a 6-footer coming back to end with a birdie.
Martin Truex Jr. called Aric Almirola an “idiot” and blamed his late-race blocking for Truex losing Saturday's Cup race at Dover International Speedway to Denny Hamlin. After getting caught behind Almirola, Truex lost the lead to Hamlin with nine laps to go and Truex finished second, ending a stretch of five races with third-place finishes. “Really, I think if the 10 (Aric Almirola) car just wasn't pinning on the bottom in front of me I would have been fine,” Truex told NBCSN after the race.
The 2020 NBA Draft is coming… eventually. While it is scheduled for Oct. 16, there is a growing chance it — along with free agency and the start of the next NBA season — could be pushed back again. NBA owners discussed just that in a call on Friday, but there is no decision yet.
More rumors began circulating on Friday that Lonzo Ball may be included in trade talks this off-season after Jay Williams reported as such on his radio show. I'm hearing things around New Orleans that Lonzo may be used as a trading asset in New Orleans…, Jay Williams of ESPN. For a variety of reasons, Ball will likely not be traded.
This week, it arrived in one of the strangest and most amazing ways yet ... with legendary Cincinnati Reds broadcaster Thom Brennaman spitting a gay slur so very casually into a mic he didn't know was hot ... and then apologizing many hours later in the most awkward way possible ... by stopping mid-apology after saying “I'm a man of faith” to hear the crack of a bat ... and interrupting the broadcasting of what might have been the end of his career ... with the most somber, funniest home run call you will ever hear in your life. This isn't even yet the politics I'm talking about, of course, because being gay isn't supposed to be politics just like wearing a mask isn't supposed to be politics.
One of the most fun storylines for the Washington Football Team over the summer is now over, as news has broken that rookie TE Thaddeus Moss has been waived from the squad. Moss was a member of the National Championship-winning LSU team in 2019, but he went undrafted in April and signed with Washington shortly after the draft came to a close on Saturday. After working out with the team throughout the summer and the start of training camp, Moss has been released, and will now look to sign with another team that may want him.
When the Sixers acquired Al Horford last July, their excitement was double-layered. In addition to acquiring a five-time All-Star they thought could solve the backup center problem behind Joel Embiid, the team plucked a key player from a rival - one who happened to defend Embiid quite well. Now, as Horford's first season as a Sixer surely nears its end, there's a double whammy to consider.

''He said, 'Bro, what am I supposed to be working on again?''' Claude Harmon said Saturday as he watched his pupil set another personal record in The Northern Trust. Johnson was an astounding 11-under par through 11 holes Friday and had the golf world curious if he would go as low as 57 to set the PGA Tour record. Instead of the fast start, it was a big finish.
The No. 2 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft is a nice place to be for the Warriors. Like every team in the league, the Warriors have plenty of needs, especially after a down season. There is a good chance that the Warriors shop this pick hard to find veteran help for their planned return to the NBA Finals, but if they don't move the pick then their priorities should include the center position, depth in the backcourt and, most importantly, NBA ready talent.
Tiger Woods was – to use a popular expression – today years old when he made a putt on the green with the flagstick in the hole. Since the rule change, there have been several studies conducted to determine whether it is an advantage to leave the flagstick in or not, and Adam Scott and Bryson DeChambeau were among the early adopters. The spread of COVID-19 and golfers not wanting to touch the flagstick has made leaving the flag in a popular choice among recreational golfers, but most professionals seem to be set in their ways.
Former Boston Red Sox utility man Brock Holt has been designated for assignment by the Milwaukee Brewers, the team announced Saturday.

Coach Jon Gruden was impressed as well, but so far, his favorite part of Allegiant is its location. The Raiders are indeed in the entertainment capital of the world, near the world-famous Las Vegas Strip, and Gruden seems to love it. Incredibly, it wasn't long ago that having an NFL team in fabulous Las Vegas, with all its glitz and glamour, was unthinkable due in part to the city's legal gambling.
