    The Orioles have pledged that they show up to the ballpark each night expecting to win. Friday night brought a reminder that the other teams in the American League East feel the same way. A 5-4 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays ended Baltimore’s 10-game winning streak — their longest since 1999 — each leg of which came against a team outside of their division. The defeat, which of opened the final series of the first half of the season, brought the Orioles (45-45) back to .500. They are 15-20 against the AL East’s other four teams, all of whom entered Friday in playoff position, and 30-25 against the rest of the league. They have particularly had trouble at Tropicana Field. Friday marked their first visit here since a series-opening sweep, one manager Brandon Hyde said before the game “feels like a long time ago.” Although the Orioles are playing much better than when they last left, the result was the same, as they’ve lost 10th straight and 16 of 17 their past games in St. Petersburg. Trey Mancini’s solo...

    TORONTO — Everything’s coming up Yankees these days. After being mowed down for five innings by Alek Manoah, the Bombers jumped on the Blue Jays bullpen and took advantage of their defense to beat Toronto 9-1. The Yankees extended their winning streak to 11 behind a home run and two-run double by Aaron Judge at the Rogers Centre Tuesday night.

    DENVER (AP) — Alex Galchenyuk was the only scorer in the shootout, and the Arizona Coyotes rallied to beat Colorado 3-2 on Tuesday night, snapping the Avalanche’s 18-game home winning streak. Galchenyuk had a second-period goal and Lawson Crouse also scored for the Coyotes. Scott Wedgewood stopped 38 shots in regulation and overtime. He made a game-sealing save on Nazem Kadri on Colorado’s last shootout try. The Avalanche had won 10 in a row since an overtime loss in Nashville on Jan. 11.

But, the Avs stumbled on the first day of February. The loss ended a run of success that dated to Nov. 6, when...
    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Derrick White scored 25 points, Dejounte Murray had 22 points and 12 rebounds and the San Antonio Spurs held off a furious rally to beat the Golden State Warriors 112-107 on Saturday night. The Spurs closed the game with an 8-1 run to win their fourth straight. Stephen Curry scored 27 points and Jordan Poole added 15 for Golden State, which was playing a night after snapping Phoenix’s 18-game winning streak in a matchup of the NBA’s top teams.

    SAN FRANCISCO — Steve Kerr made a point to note the circumstances to his players during their walkthrough before facing the Spurs: it had all the makings of a trap game. His words proved prescient only hours later, as the Golden State Warriors lost 112-107, struggling to show the same fight they did to get revenge against Phoenix a night earlier. The loss snapped an 11-game home winning streak. Golden State came to life after halftime, erasing a deficit that grew as large as 22, to take a brief lead but the burst of energy proved to be too little and too late. Steph Curry ignited the Warriors offense — and the sold-out crowd inside Chase Center – by pulling up at halfcourt as the final seconds ticked off the clock in the third quarter. On his second dryspell of the week, this one was wet. Over the ensuing 8 minutes, 45 seconds of game time, the Warriors limited San Antonio to a single field goal to finally pull even at 101 on a Curry foul...
    SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) — Chris Driedger was the winning goalie when Florida’s home-ice winning streak started last season. The streak ended Saturday — and Driedger was the winning goalie again. READ MORE: Officials: Man On American Airlines Flight From Guatemala Hitched Ride To Miami Inside Plane's Landing GearDriedger made 33 saves against his former team, helping the Seattle Kraken defeat Florida 4-1 on Saturday night to deny the Panthers what would have been a record-setting 12th consecutive home win to start the season. “Honestly it was a bit of a challenge trying to just keep my head in the game,” Driedger said. “And, you know, it’s so familiar being in this barn. Just seeing those guys on the other side of the ice is a bit different.” Jordan Eberle scored twice in his 800th game, Ryan Donato and Jamie Oleksiak added goals and Joonas Donskoi had two assists for the Kraken, who were facing the Panthers for the first time. Patric Hornqvist had the goal for Florida, and Spencer Knight stopped 23 shots for the Panthers. Florida was bidding to...
    SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) — Chris Driedger made 33 saves against his former team, helping the Seattle Kraken defeat Florida 4-1 on Saturday night to deny the Panthers what would have been a record-setting 12th consecutive home win to start the season. Jordan Eberle scored twice in his 800th game, Ryan Donato and Jamie Oleksiak added goals and Joonas Donskoi had two assists for the Kraken, who were facing the Panthers for the first time. Patric Hornqvist had the goal for Florida, and Spencer Knight stopped 23 shots for the Panthers. Florida was bidding to become the first team in NHL history to start 12-0-0 at home; the Panthers will merely have to share the record of 11 consecutive home-ice victories to open a season with Chicago, which had such a start in 1963-64. It was also Florida’s first home-ice regular-season loss since last season. The Panthers had won 15 consecutive games at home since last April, excluding playoffs, a span that included two coaches, two arena names and obviously two seasons. And there was some irony that Driedger — who...
    MADRID (AP) — Radamel Falcao was held scoreless as Rayo Vallecano’s winning run at home was halted by Celta Vigo in the Spanish league on Monday. The veteran Colombia striker scored the winner in Rayo’s win against Barcelona in the previous round, but couldn’t capitalize on his chances in drawing with Celta 0-0. The result ended Rayo’s five-match winning streak at its Vallecas Stadium this season, keeping the promoted Madrid club in sixth place, five points behind leader Real Sociedad after 12 matches. Rayo, back in the top-flight after two consecutive years in the second division, was trying to win six in a row at home for the first time since the late 1970s. It had won 10 straight first-division league matches at home against Celta. Celta stayed in 14th place, only two points from the relegation zone. It had lost three of its last four league matches. Falcao’s best chances came in the first half with a shot from inside the area and a close-range header. He was substituted in the 73rd minute. “We had the most significant chances...
    Nebraska shooting: 2 dead after a former employee opens fire at a grain services facility in Superior Virginia Guv Hopeful Glenn Youngkin Plays Footsie With the Far Right For nearly two years the U.S. women’s national team won every time it stepped on the field on American soil. That streak of 22 straight home victories came to an end Thursday with a 0-0 draw against a spirited South Korea side, ranked No. 18 in the world, that ran step for step with the No. 1-ranked U.S. women and did enough to keep them at bay. The shutout wasn’t for a lack of trying: The Americans took 18 shots. But stellar goalkeeping by South Korea’s Yoon Young-Geul (eight saves), compact defending by her teammates in front of her and erratic execution in the final third meant the U.S women were held goalless at home for the first time in 60 matches, since a 1-0 loss to Australia on July 27, 2017, in Seattle. The scoring trouble comes with just one match remaining in the U.S. women’s national team career of legend Carli Lloyd, who...
    TORONTO (AP) — Bo Bichette homered twice, including a tiebreaking home run off Clay Holmes in the eighth inning that lifted the Toronto Blue Jays over the Yankees 6-5 Wednesday night, tightened the AL wild card race and ended New York’s seven-game winning streak.

    Team USA softball has had a thrilling run through the Olympics and its round-robin schedule ended Monday with another heroic walk-off home run – this time from Kelsey Stewart.

    Rudy Gay scored 19 points, Drew Eubanks added 13 points and 13 rebounds in his first start of the season and the short-handed San Antonio Spurs had a surprisingly dominant 111-85 win over the Phoenix Suns on Saturday night.

    Oakland A’s manager Bob Melvin did not sugarcoat anything during a health-focused press conference earlier this week. He acknowledged that his team has been battered by injuries in the early going of the 2021 season and it has been one of the A’s biggest hurdles to overcome. From closer Trevor Rosenthal to outfielder Chad Pinder, the A’s have already been without some of their most important players this year. In all, they have six on the injured list. But as of Saturday morning, it appears some of them are making significant strides towards an eventual return to game action, Melvin said Saturday several hours before the A’s play the Detroit Tigers in search of their seventh straight win and a winning record for the first time this year. Pinder, who hit .300 with a home run and two RBI in four games to start the season, sprained his left knee when he crashed into the padded right-field wall on April 4 in the A’s opening series finale at home against the Houston Astros. He was subsequently shut...
