    BOSTON (AP) — Toronto’s Raimel Tapia sprinted around the bases for an inside-the-park grand slam Friday night after Boston Red Sox center fielder Jarren Duran lost the ball in the Fenway Park lights and then didn’t hustle after it. Tapia hit the second inside-the-park slam in Toronto’s history — both of them at Fenway. This one came as part of a seven-running inning that helped the Blue Jays take a 10-0 lead. With two outs in the third and Toronto leading 6-0, Tapia lifted a two-out fly ball to center against reliever Austin Davis. Duran took a couple steps back, then a couple in, then put up his hands in confusion. Fans groaned when the ball landed on the warning track behind him. Duran walked slowly toward the ball while left fielder Alex Verdugo raced over, slid to scoop it up and fired it toward the infield. The relay home wasn’t close to nabbing Tapia, who picked up speed when he realized Duran had lost the ball. The 25-year-old Duran, in his second major league season, came into the game...
    Ravens punter Sam Koch is retiring from the NFL after 16 seasons in Baltimore, the team announced Thursday. Koch, who appeared in a franchise-record 256 regular-season games, including a team-record 239 consecutively from 2006 to 2020, holds several franchise records. He holds team marks in punts (1,168), punt yardage (52,868), career gross average (45.3), career net average (39.7) and punts inside the 20-yard line (453). His 1,168 career punts are the most by a punter with a single team in NFL history. “Sam has revolutionized the game of football,” special teams coach Randy Brown said. “He introduced the idea that punters could have different types of punts, as well as have punts designed to place the ball inside the 10-yard line and to keep the ball away from returners – who have become much more dynamic in recent years. As a whole, every punter in the NFL owes Sam Koch a debt of gratitude for being the pioneer of change on how punting is executed in this league.” Koch was a sixth-round pick in the 2006 NFL draft out of...

    HE was the no-nonsense bowler with an arm like lightning on the field and an equally explosive personal life off it. Yesterday, Australian cricketer Shane Warne died from a suspected heart attack on the tropical island Koh Samui, Thailand, at the age of 52. 7Shane Warne has tragically died at the age of 52Credit: Getty Fox Sports, who he commentated for, reported that he was “found unresponsive in his villa” and “despite the best efforts of medical staff, he could not be revived”. Tributes have poured in to mark the legend’s passing including from Gary Lineker, who said he couldn’t “quite believe it”. The Match Of The Day star added: “Terribly saddened and shocked to hear the news that Shane Warne has died. The greatest spin bowler of all time.” Sun columnist Piers Morgan tweeted: “He was a genius cricketer, a supreme entertainer, a fantastic bloke and a great loyal friend for many years.”  Widely considered one of the greatest cricketers of all time, Shane’s iconic ‘Ball of the Century’ at Old Trafford in 1993 is to this day the...
    The blame game over Novak Djokovic's bungled visa approval is in full swing.  But as Djokovic awaits his extradition hearing on Monday - stuck in a small $104 a night hotel room around the corner from the airport alongside refugees and detainees - a clearer picture is starting to emerge of who dropped the ball. And it doesn't look good for the tennis bosses who organised his visa. So desperate were they to have their major drawcard play in Melbourne, they reportedly failed to let the Victorian Government know the world's No.1 - a prominent anti-vaxxer - would not be allowed into Australia unless he was double vaccinated against Covid.  The 34-year-old was under the impression he was medically exempt and free to play in the Australian Open when he touched down in Melbourne on Wednesday night. There has been back and forth between the state and federal governments in the days since regarding who is responsible for the decision The Serbian world No.1 was under the impression he was medically exempt and free to go about his business when...
    SAN FRANCISCO — Draymond Green recently found himself in an unfamiliar situation: he needed to calm down Steve Kerr. The Warriors coach admitted after Wednesday’s win, “I was pouting and my body language was terrible” during the opening stretch of the game that featured six turnovers in as many minutes and more giveaways than buckets. The Warriors have emphasized ball control — to little avail, with the sixth-most turnovers the league — early on this season as they integrate newcomers and young players into new roles. The ball movement is there — an NBA-leading 29.3 assists per game — but it’s been a little too nonchalant, as witnessed in the opening stretch Wednesday night. Worse yet, it came after a pregame conversation about that exact topic. It had Kerr in a fury. “We had spoken about it, and then we came out in that first quarter flipping them like hot cakes. The ball was all over the place,” Green recalled Friday before tipping off against New Orleans. “He took the first timeout, and we spoke about it again....
    20 facts you might not know about The Matrix The 4 Top Reasons Americans Want to Retire Early Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford combined his own experience and athletic ability with his team's analytical insight to produce a game-saving play against the Dodgers. View the original article to see embedded media.LOS ANGELES — Just before the play that won the Giants Game 3 of the National League Division Series, shortstop Brandon Crawford went where he was told. Then he went somewhere else. The Dodgers’ best hitter, rightfielder Mookie Betts, loomed at the plate with two on and two out. Lefthanded reliever Jake McGee hunched on the mound. Crawford made eye contact with the rest of the infielders and with bench coach Kai Correa, who handles their positioning. They planned to play Betts to pull the ball toward leftfield, which he did 45.2% of the time this season. But something was bothering Crawford. “I know Mookie’s been a really good hitter for a really long time, a professional hitter,” he told SI after it was over and the Giants...
    SANTA CLARA — One good thing about the 49ers’ offensive struggles in their win at Philadelphia: Mitch Wishnowsky’s prolific punts. The NFL announced Wednesday that Wishnowsky won the NFC’s Special Teams Player of the Week award for his services in Sunday’s 17-11 win at Philadelphia. Wishnowsky, an Australian who got nicknamed “The Booomin’ Onion as a 2019 rookie, is indeed off to a booming start this season. So what merited his second-career player of the week honor? Tight end George Kittle campaigned for it in his postgame address to reporters: “With three punts inside the 20 and two inside the 10, that’s pretty elite.” Trenton Cannon and Trent Sherfield downed those punts inside the 10, by the way, in an overall outstanding game by the special teams. Wishnowsky’s net average was 42.6 yards per punt. Wishnowsky also excelled on kickoffs, with 3-of-4 producing touchbacks and the other being returned to only the 20, where Cannon made the tackle. Of course, the 49ers would prefer more kickoffs than punts, meaning they’re scoring more, but...
    Any Eagles fans regretting Philadelphia’s decision to part with Carson Wentz should feel better after watching this horrific interception.  There was a time when Carson Wentz looked as if he was on a path to become one of the best handful of quarterbacks in the NFL. That period of the Colts’ quarterback’s career feels like it was decades ago. His horrific interception against the Rams in the first quarter of Week 2 makes Wentz look like he’s totally lost at the game’s most important position. The play call appeared to be an inside screen of sorts designed to take advantage of Los Angeles’ aggressive defensive line. Wentz dropped back to pass to create the necessary space required to complete the flip pass, but things went horribly wrong from there. Instead of hanging onto the ball when the pass wasn’t open Wentz elected to flip the ball into traffic. Carson Wentz tossed a hilariously bad interception against the RamsThe result was all too predictable. Troy Reeder stepped in front of the ugly backhand flip to notch the interception. Instead of taking...
    A VIDEO from a supposedly haunted hotel shows a child's ball rolling on its own across a bedroom. Some people say the footage is evidence that spirits roam the halls of the Magnolia Hotel, where a brutal murder took place in the 1800s. 3The mysterious footage was captured Saturday night 3The historically haunted Magnolia Hotel is located in Seguin, TexasCredit: Larry D. Moore/Wikipedia Erin Ghedi, who owns the hotel with her husband, said her cameras captured the footage at 10pm Saturday night. The video shows a ball rolling across the floor, along with rem pods that light up. Meanwhile, a dress shifts in the upper right corner of the frame. “The most exciting thing is watching the shadow figure enter the room on the top left corner by the door. It goes under the table,” Ghedi told KSAT-TV. Ghedi said she can see a "shadowy figure" enter the room in the footage. The figure is a spirit named Mrs. Read, who watches over the children, Ghedi explained. “That is our children’s room where all of our...
    Biden administration, Gov. Newsom open California coast to offshore wind farms Pentagon accelerates withdrawal from Afghanistan When you pick up a special ball in Knockout City, you are looking to have a true weapon in your hands. A dodgeball that can completely change the course of a battle if used right. Something that makes you a force to be reckoned with. That is definitely the case if you are playing with a Cage Ball.

    (CNN)One Illinois man has bowled a perfect game more than a dozen times -- but the last time he went for the perfect 300, there was more at stake.Earlier this month, John Hinkle Jr., of Peoria, Illinois, honored the memory of his father, John Hinkle Sr., by achieving that perfect score while using a bowling ball that contained his father's ashes.Hinkle Jr., a school counselor, comes from a family of bowlers. He and his twin brother, Joe, started leagues when they were four years old. Their parents bowled as well."He (John Hinkle Sr.) never had a perfect game until NOW," Hinkle Jr. wrote in a Facebook post on April 12, where he shared video of the moment.Once you bowl a perfect game, doing it again is far less daunting because you've done it before, Hinkle told CNN.

    Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wades Kids Once Thought She Should Just Stay Home Because Dad Is Rich Hertz Picks Centerbridge-Backed Plan to Exit From Bankruptcy An Arizona baseball player got one of the most serendipitous inside-the-park home runs on Friday when the opposing Arizona State outfielder who was chasing the ball got stuck in the outfield fence while trying to retrieve the ball. The bizarre play helped shift momentum in the Wildcats' favor against their in-state rivals and helped propel them to an eventual 7-6 victory over the Sun Devils. © Provided by CBS Sports The play happened in the top of the sixth with Tanner O'Tremba at the plate for Arizona. The sophomore hit a liner down the third base foul line which would have been good for extra bases on its own, but ASU left fielder Hunter Jump inadvertently assisted the batter when his left foot got stuck on the fence while trying to make a play. Jump threw his arms in the air as if to try and get the umpire's attention to call time, but...

    A cricket fan has turned into an instant Australian legend by catching the ball in his beer cup at a Big Bash League cricket match. The amazing fluke came as the Melbourne Stars snatched defeat from the jaws of victory against the Hobart Hurricanes at Bellerive Oval, Hobart on Saturday.

    The nonsense is out there, and it’s unstoppable. Even analyst Boomer Esiasion of CBS, who should know better as a former NFL quarterback and one-time MVP, seemed to be suggesting the New York Jets lost to the Raiders on purpose. “I have a headache thinking about this…the fact that Gregg Williams would play that coverage in that situation? It’s almost like the Jets drew that up to lose the game,” Esiason said Sunday in the aftermath of a 31-28 win by the Raiders on a 46-yard touchdown pass to Henry Ruggs III with five seconds remaining. Social media went further. A tank job. Losing for Lawrence. Tanking for Trevor. That would be Trevor Lawrence, the Clemson quarterback and alleged sure thing in the NFL draft. Why else would the Jets send the house when all they needed to do was keep the Raiders from crossing the goal line? Neither Williams, the Jets defensive coordinator, or head coach Adam Gase are that diabolical. If they were that smart, they wouldn’t be 0-12. To buy the tanking B.S.,...
    ATK Mohun Bagan continued their all-win start in the 2020-21 Indian Super League (ISL) following a narrow win against Odisha in their third match of the season at the Fatorda Stadium on Thursday. The teams fought toe-to-toe right until Roy Krishna’s header decided the fate of the game in the final minute.  Antonio Lopez Habas and Stuart Baxter made a change each to the lineups. Manvir Singh replaced David Williams and Diego Mauricio came in for Manuel Onwu for ATK Mohun Bagan and Odisha respectively. The first major goal-scoring chance fell to Roy Krishna in the 24th minute when he found himself one-on-one with Kamaljit Singh after receiving a long ball from Tiri inside the Odisha box. The Fijian blasted the ball over the crossbar.  The easiest chance of the half was squandered by Jacob Tratt in the 35th minute. Premjit Singh played a short corner to Marcelinho who found Cole Alexander at the edge of the box. Alexander lobbed a cross into the box for Tratt who headed wide with an empty net available.  The first half was a cagey affair and an...
    The first time Jon Gruden and Andy Reid were head coaches on opposite sidelines was in 2001. Gruden was in his fourth year as head coach of the Raiders. Reid, who worked with Gruden on Mike Holmgren’s staff with the Green Bay Packers, was in his third year with the Philadelphia Eagles. Both teams would win their respective divisions and go to the playoffs, and Gruden and Reid were considered among the brightest young offensive minds in the NFL. Even then Gruden was miscast as a proponent of the “West Coast offense,” which was the foundation of the system Holmgren imported from the 49ers and ran in Green Bay. Gruden, borrowed heavily from the offense, but would laugh at the connection, noting his use of extra tight ends and a smash-mouth running game. “You know how many plays we use three tight ends?,” Gruden said at the time. “If that’s West Coast, I’m Jimmy Carter.” The Raiders beat the Eagles at Veteran’s Stadium 20-10. Playing without the injured Tyrone Wheatley, the Raiders ran the ball 47...
    Entertainment : From the Editorial Office La Jornada newspaperMonday, November 9, 2020, p. 5 Chivas took second place in the general table by beating Puebla 5-0 at the start of matchday 15 of the Liga Mx Femenil. The rojiblancas reached 38 points, only two behind the leader Tigres, while the Puebla squad lagged behind in the fight to reach the league by staying in 13th place. The duel was simple for the tapatías, who took the victory with a double from Nicole Pérez (13 and 43), as well as goals from Carolina Jaramillo (32), Anette Vázquez (63) and María Sánchez (89, penalty). With just a few minutes on the field of the Cuauhtémoc stadium, the Chivas imposed their game by reaching the nets when María Sánchez leaked through the left side and sent a cross for Nicole Pérez to open the scoring. While the Puebla squad suffered to generate danger, Guadalajara remained calm and about half an hour rocked the networks again. Alicia Cervantes rescued the ball inside the area and sent a cross...
    The Tampa Bay Rays have crossed the desert on some no-name horses. Advancing from the AL playoffs in San Diego to the World Series in Arlington, Texas, manager Kevin Cash leaned hard on his bullpen — a group he described as “a whole damn stable of guys who throw 98 miles per hour” during a memorable spat with the Yankees in September. The tagline has come to define the small-market Rays. The relief corps has no thoroughbreds, no All-Stars, no big-money headliners — Aaron Loup is the highest-paid reliever on the roster after signing a $1.65 million, one-year deal. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM Yet the bullpen has dominated all year. Twelve different pitchers converted at least one save during the regular season, matching the major league record despite the compressed schedule, and the group had a 3.37 ERA, third in the majors. They've been just as overpowering in October. Cash has the utmost confidence in the crew, a fact that showed when he gave notably early hooks to starters Blake Snell and Charlie Morton in Games...
    The NFL world is astonished and amazed because Derek Carr, the quarterback who never met a 5-yard pass he didn’t like, started flinging it long against Kansas City as if the Raiders were the Greatest Show on Turf reincarnated. Even Kurt Warner, the Hall of Fame downfield thrower for the Rams when they were the original Greatest Show on Turf, listed Carr as his top Week 5 quarterback during his weekly NFL Network feature and cited his willingness to “push the ball down the field.” It was impressive, with Carr completing 4 of 7 passes thrown 20 or more yards in the air, for 219 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Yet the Chiefs win had another development that will have more bearing on a potential run at a division title or playoff berth. The long strikes, featuring rookie Henry Ruggs III, as nostalgic as they were for those who long for Al Davis’ “vertical game,” take a backseat to the way the Raiders bewitched, bothered and bewildered Chiefs quarterback and NFL standard bearer Patrick Mahomes...
    The Raiders got everything they wanted out of Derek Carr in Week 1. He was efficient, avoided sacks and interceptions and spread the ball to nine different receivers. More than that, Carr was at one with coach Jon Gruden, operating as the CEO quarterback and ball distributor the Raiders head coach hasn’t had since Rich Gannon from 1999 through 2001. In other words, Carr looked at least a little like Drew Brees, and that is no accident. “We model a lot of what we do as quarterbacks based on what he does,” Carr said Wednesday in a Zoom interview. “He’d rather throw a completion than throw a 40-yard pass for an incompletion. And he has a Super Bowl ring, so he doesn’t care much about it. So I love his game. He keeps the ball moving. He’s efficient. They stay on schedule.” Brees, meanwhile, looked almost mortal at age 41 in the Saints’ 34-23 season-opening win against Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He was 18 of 30 for 160 yards and a pair of...
    Derek Carr was speaking the truth again Tuesday, one that he won’t be able to put aside until leading the Raiders to an endless procession of touchdowns. The goal line is all that stands between Carr and being considered one of the NFL’s top quarterbacks. “My vision is that we’ll just score more points,” Carr said during a Zoom teleconference. “If we don’t finish in the red zone everyone is going to be hanging their head and bummed out again. I think my vision for us is that we would be a top offense in the red zone and usually the top offenses in the red zone are taking care of the football, and those are the teams that are in the playoffs and making runs.” Josh Dubow, the Associated Press statistical savant who has fueled Carr’s detractors and angered his supporters, pointed out on Twitter that the Raiders are 28th in the NFL in scoring since Carr’s rookie season in 2014 and have only once been above average. That was in 2016, an outlier that included, among other things,...
