    ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — While the Texas Rangers struck out 14 times overall, they made Zack Wheeler throw a lot of pitches, took advantage of an error and beat the Philadelphia Phillies again. Brad Miller hit a two-run single against his former team, with two outs after an error in the second, and Kole Calhoun also drove in two runs as the Rangers won 4-2 for their ninth win in a row over the Phillies since 2014.

But at the same time, we actually had really quality at bats to get those runs.” Wheeler (6-4) lost for the first time in his last 10 starts, since losing his first three starts this season after finishing second in the NL Cy Young Award voting last year. The right-hander...
    DENVER (AP) — José Ramírez doubled for his eighth straight game with an extra-base hit and the Cleveland Guardians matched a season high with their fourth win in a row, beating the sloppy Colorado Rockies 4-2 Thursday. Ramírez hit an opposite-field grounder that hugged the third-base line against an exaggerated shift in the first inning. He is the first major leaguer with extra-base hits in eight consecutive games since Cincinnati’s Joey Votto in 2020. Amed Rosario extended his hitting streak to 10 games with an RBI single to cap a three-run third inning. He is 18 for 42 (.429) during his hitting string and was 6 for 13 with three extra-base hits in the three-game series at Coors Field. Triston McKenzie (4-5) gave up one run in six innings. He worked around seven hits, striking out six and walking one. Emmanuel Clase gave up a pair of singles to begin the ninth before earning his third save of the series. All three came on game-ending double plays. Brian Serven, who tripled, and Connor Joe each had a career-high four hits...
    DENVER (AP) — Max Fried pitched eight scoreless innings, Matt Olson hit a two-run single in the 10th and the Atlanta Braves beat the Colorado Rockies 3-1 on Friday night to become the last major league team to win three straight games this season. In only the second game in Coors Field history to be scoreless after nine innings, Carlos Estevez (1-2) walked and hit a batter to load the bases in the 10th. His wild pitch allowed automatic runner Adam Duvall to score. Olson then hit a liner to left field off Lucas Gilbreath, making a winner of A.J. Minter (1-0), who worked the ninth. Kenley Jansen gave up an RBI single to Yonathan Daza before earning his 13th save for the up-and-down Braves, who moved within a game of .500. It spoiled a striking turnaround through nine innings for Colorado’s struggling pitching, as Chad Kuhl and three relievers combined to hold the defending World Series champions off the scoreboard. Fried used a mix of four pitches that led to Rockies hitters often lunging. The...

    No. 4 Oklahoma (9-0, 6-0 Big 12, No. 8 CFP) at No. 18 Baylor (7-2, 4-2, No. 13), Saturday at noon EST (FOX). Line: Oklahoma by 6 1/2, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

    NEW YORK (AP) — Jean Segura had his first multi-homer game in almost five years and Aaron Nola snapped a nine-start winless streak, leading the surging Philadelphia Phillies over the New York Mets 5-3 Saturday. Bryce Harper drove in two runs to help Philadelphia win its fourth in a row and hurt the Mets’ flickering playoff hopes. The Phillies began the day two games behind Atlanta in the NL East. They stayed 2 1/2 games in back of St. Louis for the second NL wild-card spot. The Mets lost their fifth straight and tied a season high by falling five games under .500. Segura homered in the first inning and again in the third off Carlos Carrasco (1-3) for his sixth career two-homer game and first since Sept. 26, 2016, when he went deep twice for the Arizona Diamondbacks against the Washington Nationals. Nola (8-8), who was 0-2 with a 5.10 ERA since his previous win July 25, allowed four hits and walked one with nine strikeouts in 5 2/3 innings. He carried a shutout into the sixth, when Brandon...
    PHOENIX (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Hopefully it’s the start of a trend… Jordan Lyles pitched seven smooth innings in relief, Jason Martin hit a two-run single and the Texas Rangers beat the Diamondbacks Tuesday night.

    Emma Raducanu shone on the US Open's centre stage with another thumping win over Shelby Rogers to become the youngest British player to reach the quarter-finals in New York in the Open era. Rogers defeated world number one Ashleigh Barty on Saturday but it was a very different experience for the American here as Raducanu reeled off 11 games in a row in a 6-2 6-1 victory to book a last-eight date with Olympic champion Belinda Bencic. Raducanu was the first woman since Jennifer Capriati in 1990 to reach at least the fourth round of her first two grand slam tournaments and she is only the third qualifier to reach the quarter-finals in New York.

A third defeat in a row, against Chelsea last night, accounts for the club's worst run since 2012. 3Jose Mourinho has pointed to Tottenham's years without a trophy amid his own bad spellCredit: Guardian News & Media But the combatant coach stated afterwards that Tottenham's issues go back much further.

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Mike Yastrzemski hit a three-run homer as the San Francisco Giants defeated the Seattle Mariners 10-1 for their fifth straight win Wednesday night under skies turned orange by raging wildfires in Northern California. Players took batting practice with the lights turned on at Oracle Park on a late-summer afternoon.
