    Getty Austin Bryant excited on the field for Lions vs. Eagles in 2022. The Detroit Lions did not manage to grab a win in Week 1 of the 2022 season, and a big reason as many saw it was the team’s defense. The Lions allowed 38 points on the day in the loss and could not get off the field or get a stop when they needed in crunch time. That helped fuel the frustration some have with the team. Defensive end Austin Bryant, however, has a different approach. In spite of the fact that the team gave up plenty of yards and four touchdowns on the day, there was some building blocks. Bryant admitted when speaking to the media on Monday, August 12 that moral victories are hard to find, but insisted that his team was not beaten at the point of attack, and nearly made a run at the end, facts he takes heart in.

    After a shaky first inning, Orioles pitchers blitzed through Friday’s next seven frames. Then came the ninth. Byron Buxton’s walk-off, two-run home run off Baltimore closer Jorge López gave the Minnesota Twins a 3-2 victory to open their series with the Orioles. Baltimore had been 29-0 when leading after eight innings. Luis Arraez opened the ninth with a single after a nine-pitch at-bat and Buxton followed with the walk-off blast. McKenna’s big game An injury to the hand of one of the Orioles’ core offensive pieces created an opportunity for McKenna. He showed off his arm, glove and legs. With Trey Mancini continuing to nurse a right hand injury first suffered more than two weeks ago, McKenna drew the start in left field and ended a long bottom of the first by throwing a runner out at the plate. The Orioles’ pitchers followed that throw by retiring the next 21, with McKenna contributing a diving catch to that effort. He began the eighth with a double, eventually scoring the go-ahead run. It’s been a second straight year of sporadic major...
    Q: Do you think the Heat will consider John Collins? He is young, athletic, plays defense, can shoot the 3 and fits what the Heat need. Plus, he seems to be available. – Jeffrey. A: Available . . . for the right price. So the question with the entire offseason rumor mill is whether the Heat have such a price available. Yes, you could make an argument that John Collins and Bam Adebayo would provide ultimate power-rotation versatility, with the needed stretch-ability, if you will. But also consider that the prime asset the Heat could offer would be Tyler Herro. And does a team with Trae Young necessarily also need a Tyler Herro? Certainly, that could be a potent one-two punch, with Herro off the bench. But is that where Tyler would want to trend? Yes, for years the Heat have been linked to John Collins and his South Florida roots. I get it. But in order to play the trade game, you have to be able to pay in the trade game. Plus, you are talking about division rivals,...
    The Orioles twice took late-inning leads Tuesday night in the Bronx. Neither survived the bottom half of the frame. The New York Yankees walked off the Orioles, 7-6, to even the teams’ three-game series, with the Yankees answering Baltimore’s seventh-inning rally with one of their own before Jose Trevino’s game-winning single in the 11th inning after the Orioles plated a run in the top half. Baltimore (18-26) put together its second four-run inning of the series thanks to home runs from Austin Hays and Rougned Odor to Yankee Stadium’s short right field porch, only for New York to even the game in the bottom half. Starter Bruce Zimmermann’s outing ended after a home run by Gleyber Torres, his second of the night after going without a longball against the Orioles in 2020 and 2021 following his 13-blast barrage in 2019. Orioles manager Brandon Hyde then turned to rookie Logan Gillaspie, making his third major league appearance, in a one-run game and he was unable to hold the lead. Keegan Akin and Dillon Tate got the game to the 11th, where...
    Just like the weather, Gleyber Torres is starting to heat up. The Yankees’ second baseman has hit two big home runs in the last four games. Wednesday, it was a three-run shot and he finished with five RBI to power the Bombers past the Blue Jays, 5-3, at the Stadium. The Yankees (22-8) swept the two-game series from their American League East rivals and have won six of the nine games they have played this season. Nine of the 11 runs they scored off the Blue Jays (17-15) in the series came off a three-run homer. Giancarlo Stanton had one Tuesday night and Aaron Judge won that game with a walk-off, three-run homer. Torres had his three-run shot in the fourth. He then doubled in two runs in the sixth inning. It was his second career game with five RBI or more, the last being in his break-out 2019 season. He had six RBI Aug.s 12, 2019 against the Orioles. He snapped an 0-for-11 streak with that fourth-inning at-bat and had been hitless in five of his last six games...
    TORONTO — Aaron Judge smiled when he heard the story. It was simple, really. A grown man wearing a Blue Jays cap just happened to be in the right spot at the right time when Judge crushed a 427-foot, sixth-inning home run Tuesday night. After catching the ball, he turned and saw a young boy in a Yankee cap and Judge shirt, so he gave him the ball. The boy burst out in tears and hugged the man. “That’s special right there,” Judge said when told the story. “Yankees fans are all around the world. They’re passionate about this game, and to have a little one like that, he’s starting out the right way.” When told it was a Blue Jays fan who gave the boy the ball, Judge was impressed. “No way,” Judge said. “That’s what’s special about this game. It doesn’t matter what jersey you wear. Everybody appreciates this game. That’s pretty cool. I’ve got to check out that video.” The video, shown on the YES Network, was all over social media before the Yankees wrapped up their 9-1...
    Getty New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson scrambles with the football during Week 12. The New York Jets won in Houston but as many fans pointed out, Zach Wilson did not play very well. While this is true, it’s easy to overlook the small improvements that the rookie made. The decisions to throw a ball away when the receiver isn’t open, the attempt to flip to a playmaker rather than run the ball himself, the quicker release time on passing snaps, and so much more. You can also take into account that his knee didn’t look 100% and playmakers like Corey Davis, Michael Carter, Denzel Mims and Tyler Kroft were missing on offense. You could, but the purpose of this article isn’t to make excuses and Wilson was harder on himself than anyone after the game. The purpose is to focus on what the quarterback learned, and one Q&A answer from Robert Saleh accidentally revealed that Wilson’s best play of the game came off an improvised pre-snap read.

    Postseason elimination is, essentially, just hours away for the Oakland A’s. A season that began with so much promise — off winning an American League West crown, running it back with a group of proven talent and some young players eager to prove the hype — is ending in utter disappointment with a scarily uncertain future for the franchise in store. What went wrong? With the postseason going on without the A’s for the first time in three seasons, the dust of this 2021 season is starting to settle. And key turning points have emerged in which this season started to point south. Here are just a few. Ramón Laureano suspension: Aug. 6 News of Laureano’s 80-game suspension after testing positive nandrolone, a performance-enhancing drug, was practically shrugged off by the team.

It was clear the team didn’t want to dwell on the loss, “You’re forced to move on,” manager Bob Melvin said at the time. “Everybody feels bad for what happened...
    The Giants found a bit of magic to beat the Dodgers on Friday night at Oracle Park. Or should I say that the Dodgers found a bit of misfortune? Either way, San Francisco — despite having a 1-0 lead going into the ninth inning — improbably won Friday’s series opener. (Be honest, you expected the Dodgers to at least tie against Jake McGee — they weren’t going to make that win easy.) And after Buster Posey could have ended the game with a tag in that ninth inning, but tagged the wrong Dodger, it was fitting that his hustle down the line was part of the equation on the game’s deciding play, when shortstop-turned-second baseman Trea Turner threw errantly to catcher-who-never-played-first-base-in-his-life Will Smith, perhaps pulling him off the bag and allowing Posey to “drive home” the winning run in a 2-1 Giants victory.

    DYERSVILLE, Iowa -- Tim Anderson hit a two-run homer in the ninth inning into the cornfield to end the Field of Dreams game in cinematic fashion, as the Chicago White Sox outslugged the New York Yankees 9-8 Thursday night in the first Major League Baseball game in Iowa.Anderson, who was clearly having as much fun as anyone in attendance and had an earlier RBI double, danced his way around the bases and wiggled his hands around his neck as he headed for home and the celebratory dousing at the plate from his teammates.

    To be a legitimate postseason threat, the A’s added three offensive players to help boost a somewhat average offense into, at least, an above average one. A 8-3 win over the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday afternoon in Anaheim showed how big of a difference those additions can make on this offense. Yan Gomes, Starling Marte and Josh Harrison, the newest A’s, were penciled into the lineup all together for the first time. Marte and Gomes were at the center of what’s become a rare outpouring of runs and helped turn the A’s bad habit of hitting solo home runs into a handful of demoralizing multi-run home runs. Down three runs heading into the third inning, Marte’s first hit of the game followed a leadoff single by Elvis Andrus and set the table for Matt Olson, who just cleared the center field fence for a game-tying, three-run home run. His 28th of the season. In the sixth with the A’s up 6-3, Mark Canha singled and Marte collected his second hit of the game and stole second...

    It has taken Rutgers 30 years to dance the March Madness dance again, and the last man to take the Scarlet Knights to the NCAA Tournament will be cheering them on from his Florida home. “Clemson’s a good team,” Bob Wenzel told The Post, “but Clemson wasn’t the best team in the ACC. They’re kind of similar in style of how they play. They’re not overly big, which is a good thing for Rutgers.

    The Buffalo Bills Were One Of The Most Dominant Teams In The NFL This Season; But How Will That Translate In The Playoffs? By: Olivier Dumont January 8, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditSince the year 2000, the Buffalo Bills never managed to attain more than 10 wins in a single season up until now.  After three straight Super Bowl visits from 1991-1993 and a handful of dominating playoff appearances in the years to follow, the Bills fell from grace once the 2000s rolled around and struggled to figure out how to put together a winning season for the next 15+ years.  Ending their 17-year playoff drought in 2017 with a 9-7 record to show for, it was uncertain whether this was a sign of hope or merely just a fluke. But ever since 2017, a lot has surely changed.  Following a disappointing exit in the playoffs, the Bills decided to launch a full scale rebuild and invest in a new franchise quarterback, selecting Josh Allen out of the University of Wyoming with the 7th overall pick...

    The New York Jets-New England Patriots showdown on “Monday Night Football” features AFC East rivals desperate for a victory. The Patriots (2-5 straight up, 3-4 against the spread) have lost four straight, most recently falling to the Bills, 24-21, although they were covered as four-point road underdogs. The Patriots never have lost five straight games in the Bill Belichick era. The Jets (0-8 SU, 1-7 ATS) are the only winless team in the NFL. They are coming off a 36-9 loss to the Chiefs, failing to cover as a 20-point road underdog. This line opened with New England listed as a 7.5-point road favorite. The public knows the Patriots are struggling but can’t stomach backing the winless Jets. However, despite roughly two-thirds of bets taking the Patriots, we saw the line fall from New England -7.5 to -7. That signaled some smart money buying low on the Jets at home getting the points. The line jumped back up, all the way to 9.5, when the Jets announced Sam Darnold would not start, due to a shoulder injury. Joe Flacco will...

    Throw it back, sure. But what is the “it,” exactly? It’s never been an existential or philosophical question: you catch a home run ball, you throw it back. Such is rule. Such is baseball law, as the baseball gods intended it. This is the way. There’s never been much confusion surrounding the ritual to “Throw It Back” — at least not until World Series Game 2, when one of the few fans in attendance grabbed a Will Smith home run and proceeded to throw “it” back to the field. The “it” wasn’t the ball though, it was the fan’s glove. In the words of Fox broadcaster Joe Buck (and Stone Cold Steve Austin): “…What?” The man in the video was clearly remorseful for chucking the glove. Maybe he panicked. Maybe he just didn’t know what to do after catching a home run, and the pressure got to him. Maybe he’s one (or five) brewskis a bit too deep. Luckily for him, Randy Arozarena tossed the glove back up to him, the fan securing a second catch. Let’s break it...

    The Rays were bailed out in the eighth inning with a key double play. The Tampa Bay Rays held a narrow 2-1 lead late in Game 1 of the ALCS against the Houston Astros. Fans then witnessed the Astros load the bases in the top of the eighth with only one out, putting that lead on thin ice. Manager Kevin Cash called upon reliever Diego Castillo to save the day and he did so with just one pitch. One pitch, two outs. Diego Castillo is clutch. #ALCS pic.twitter.com/w2H47HEeCB — MLB (@MLB) October 12, 2020 Rays turn a clutch play into a victoryThe Rays offense wasn’t exactly dominating Sunday night and even a single by the Astros could have given Houston a commanding 3-2 lead. But Castillo forced that weak grounder from Yuli Gurriel and the lead was preserved. But the drama didn’t end there. That 2-1 lead stayed the same heading into the top of the ninth and Castillo stayed in for the save. Josh Reddick reached with one out, was pinch-run for by Myles Straw, who was pushed to...
    If you were working on the screenplay, you would have Gerrit Cole starting in ALDS Game 5. Starting on short rest for the first time in his career. Starting to get his new team to the ALCS against his old team. The Yankees got the ball to Cole. They did that by surviving a do-or-die Game 4 thanks to a cast of heroes. Jordan Montgomery provided four quality innings Thursday night, when the Yankees had to be on red alert from the outset just in case the lefty didn’t have it. Chad Green began a strong relay race of bullpen arms followed by Zack Britton and Aroldis Chapman. Brett Gardner and DJ LeMahieu had terrific at-bats, Luke Voit and Gleyber Torres went deep, and Kyle Higashioka delivered an insurance run. Add it all up and the Yankees played a thorough game to beat the Rays 5-1. So now there will be a decisive game Friday between these hostile rivals, both attempting to play against an organization — the Astros — they both hate more than they hate one another. Houston...

    The Chicago Cubs are in the postseason again for the fourth time in five years, but could this be on their final runs as currently constructed? There hasn’t been much change for the Cubs since 2015. The most obvious change was hiring first-year manager David Ross, who came in to replace the future hall of fame manager Joe Maddon. “I’m not going to shy away from this,” Rizzo said Thursday of his rare blend of having fun and taking each game seriously. “This could be (our) last year together. We all know that, especially with the state of the game and who knows what’s going to happen. “This could be our last run with all our guys. This could be my last year. Who knows?” With the Cubs preparing for what could be their final postseason with this current core, it’s hard not to look back on that late July night back in 2015. Kris Bryant, who had been seen as the Cubs savior is now an NL MVP winner, Anthony Rizzo has won a Gold Glove at 1st base...
    LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — Getting big leads has been relatively easy for the Boston Celtics in these Eastern Conference finals. This time, they also found a way to finish the job. And just like that, the East title series got a whole lot closer. Jaylen Brown scored 26 points, Jayson Tatum added 25 and the Celtics got right back into the East finals with a 117-106 victory over the Miami Heat in Game 3 on Saturday night. Kemba Walker added 21 to help Boston pull to 2-1 in the best-of-seven series. Marcus Smart scored 20 points for Boston, going 9 for 9 from the foul line in the fourth quarter. The Celtics — who also got 14 rebounds and eight assists from Tatum — outscored Miami 60-36 inside the paint, led by as many as 20 and never trailed. The Celtics held Miami to 39 percent shooting. Bam Adebayo had 27 points and 16 rebounds for the Heat, who fell for just the second time in 12 games in these playoffs. Tyler Herro scored 22 points, Jimmy Butler had...
    Homer barrage is not enough. It doesn’t do it. We have seen homer barrages before. So it is inadequate to use those two words to describe what the Yankees did for three days to the Black and Blue Jays. For the Yankees earned their Bronx Bomber moniker with a century of clout. Yet, no Yankees team had ever done what this one did for three days. Pretty much every night, it would have been easier to make a list of the Yankees who did not homer than the ones that did. If you thought the backup catcher, Kyle Higashioka, going deep three times Wednesday was what would drop a jaw or raise an eyebrow, then you should have seen the three-pitch, three-homer assault the Yankees delivered in what turned out to be a five-homer fourth inning Thursday in a 10-7 victory. The Yankees hit 19 homers, a record not just for a three-game series but a series of any length. Those homers traveled nearly 1 ¹/₂ miles combined. The Yankees became the first team ever with at least six homers...
    Scott Mayfield has made big strides this postseason for the Islanders By: Rob Taub September 17, 2020 ShareTweetFlipRedditThere’s been a lot to be excited about as the New York Islanders during their run in the playoffs. That includes the progression from one player who has been a big part of the steadfast defensive core they’ve built in recent years, Scott Mayfield. Mayfield, despite a few setbacks (or broken sticks to be specific), has made some big strides since the Isles have started bubble play at both ends of the ice. In 21 games, Mayfield has recorded five points and is a +13 overall, which is the best on the team. Three of those five points too came at the tail end of the previous series against the Flyers. He’s totaled 23 shots, showing he hasn’t been afraid to try and get in on the offense. Mayfield’s lone goal in the playoffs — the game-winner in game seven against Philadelphia — was a beautiful wrister and a shooters shot. The ICEBREAKER from...
    MILWAUKEE (CBS/AP) — Alec Mills cruised through baseball’s second no-hitter this season, shutting down the Milwaukee Brewers for the Chicago Cubs’ 16th no-hitter in a 12-0 victory Sunday. The White Sox had the first no-hitter of the season thrown by Lucas Giolito against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Aug. 25. This is the first time the Cubs and White Sox have both had no-hitters in the same season. Mills got Jace Peterson — who replaced star slugger Chritsian Yelich late in the blowout — to hit a routine grounder to shortstop Javier Baez with two outs in the ninth. Baez completed the play, and the Cubs swarmed around Mills, tearing off his cap and pulling at the smiling right-hander’s uniform. Mills (5-3) threw 114 pitches and hardly had any close calls. Avisail Garcia nearly got to him twice, hitting a line drive to right in the first and nearly legging out an infield hit to shortstop in the sixth. Garcia crossed first and immediately called to the Brewers dugout for a review, but after a very brief stoppage, the Brewers opted...
    Ron Hassey, a Yankees catcher in the mid-1980s, was asked how he was feeling. “Physically, I’m fine,” he replied. “Mentally, I’m day-to-day.” We get it. Monday, the Marlins led the Mets, 4-3, in the seventh. Brandon Nimmo was on first for the Mets, none out, Jeff McNeil at bat. The Marlins went into a radical shift toward first. A bunt or anything close to a tapper toward third would give the Mets at least two on. But not even a try or a feint. On a 3-2 pitch, McNeil lined into the shift, double play. Although the Marlins struck out 13 times, they won this thoroughly modern, dreadful game, 5-3. With The Game in horrible fundamental decay due to home-run-or-strikeout “strategies” and managers who pull effective pitchers in search of arsonists, the simplistic cry has been renewed: ban the shift! In other words, MLB should continue to legislate changes to artificially treat badly eroded skills while sustaining or worsening the abandonment of smart, winning baseball. Even by this season’s farcical standards, this past weekend’s Yanks-Mets series offered a continuum of...
