    Illinois's July 4 massacre which saw six people killed in another day of horrific violence in the US took place in a state which has the sixth strictest gun laws in the country. The midwestern state enforces universal background checks, red flag warnings and safe storage requirements yet it has not imposed a ban on assault weapons. Gun control groups say many of the weapons that fuel the horrific gang violence in Chicago flood in from nearby states which have much more relaxed gun laws. More than 60 per cent of the weapons used in shootings in Chicago in 2016 came from outside Illinois.  And this year, analysis shows less than half the total guns in Illinois actually come from the state, at 49.8 per cent, with nearly 17 per cent from Indiana. It is not yet known what weapon was used by the alleged gunman Robert 'Bobby' Crimo III, 22, who picked off passersby at random from a roof in Highland Park yesterday. But authorities said they recovered a high-powered rifle from the scene of the massacre in Highland...
    Seiya Suzuki sprinted around the bases at American Family Field. He planned to keep running until told otherwise. Chicago Cubs third base coach Willie Harris did not hesitate, emphatically waving him home. Suzuki dodged the Milwaukee Brewers’ relay throw and tag attempt by catcher Victor Caratini as his hand swiped the plate while eluding Caratini’s mitt. The inside-the-park home run in the ninth inning Monday marked a thrilling return to the lineup for Suzuki, who was activated from the injured list before the 5-2, 10-inning loss to the Brewers. Suzuki had not played since suffering a sprained left ring finger May 26. So as he sprinted during the ninth, he had one thought. “Stop me,” Suzuki joked through interpreter Toy Matsushita. “My legs were getting pretty tired. I was getting ready for somebody to say, ‘Stop.’” The Cubs, however, wasted Suzuki’s hustle. They were on the verge of pulling out a late victory thanks to the go-ahead inside-the-park homer with one out in the ninth. Ahead 2-0 in the count against tough Brewers lefty Josh Hader, Suzuki sliced a 95...

    OAKLAND — Just moments away from a satisfying victory Wednesday, the Athletics instead took another gut punch in a 5-4 loss to the Houston Astros at the Coliseum. Yordan Alvarez drove in three runs with a bases-loaded double to cap a four-run ninth against Dany Jimenez and Sam Selman as the A’s suffered a sweep at the hands of the A.L. West leaders before a crowd of 5,189. The A’s were being no-hit by Justin Verlander going into the seventh, only to strike for two runs on an RBI double from Elvis Andrus and a two-run home run from Christian Bethancourt for a 3-1 lead they took into the ninth. Jimenez (2-3) gave up two walks and two singles, walking in a run before Selman came on to face Alvarez. He worked the count to 0-2, but Alvarez got one he liked and put it in the gap to drive in three runs. Houston improved to 33-18, with the A’s falling to 20-33. Ryan Pressly pitched the ninth inning for Houston and picked up his 10th save, giving up an...
    Jed Lowrie singled home Cristian Pache with two out in the ninth inning Sunday as the Athletics avoided a four-game sweep with a 6-5 win over the Texas Rangers before a crowd of 8,342 at the Coliseum. Pache opened the ninth with a single to right against losing pitcher Brett Martin. After Tony Kemp popped up a sacrifice bunt attempt, Pache went to second when Ramon Laureano hit a grounder off Martin, who retired Laureano at first. Lowrie then delivered the game-winner to left center as the A’s improved their record to 20-30. Texas, hoping to reach .500, instead fell to 22-24 Pinder, hitting for Seth Brown, drove in the tying run against reliever John King. Then, with one out, Marcus Semien, playing second base, threw a ball in the dirt with the infield in and the bases loaded enabling Ramon Laureano to score the lead run. The Rangers tied it against Dany Jimenez, however, when the reliever uncorked a wild pitch with two out that enabled Semien to score the tying run. Jimenez (2-2) ended up the winning pitcher...
    PHILADELPHIA — The Mets took the phrase “never say die” to a completely different planet. Down six runs in the ninth, the Mets put together a seven-run rally against two Phillies pitchers, including closer Corey Knebel, to mount the comeback of all comebacks. It was pandemonium in the City of Brotherly Love as the Mets beat the Phillies, 8-7, at Citizens Bank Park on Thursday night in the unlikeliest win of their season to date. “I’m trying not to be giddy,” said the typically business-as-usual manager Buck Showalter. “That’s a good club over there. We’ll make everybody know that as long as we got some outs, we got a chance. “A night like tonight makes you realize what could be.” Starling Marte began and ended the rally when he led off the ninth inning with an infield single to short. When the Mets batted around the order, Marte put the punctuation mark on the game with a go-ahead RBI double off the centerfield wall to score a hustling Brandon Nimmo from first. But, in the clubhouse after the game, Showalter...
    Dylan Cease was in command against the entire Los Angeles Angels lineup Monday — and Mike Trout was no exception. Cease struck out the three-time American League MVP three times in the Chicago White Sox’s 3-0 victory, part of an 11-strikeout performance that matched the right-hander’s career high. He got Trout swinging in the first inning, retired him on a 98 mph fastball in the fourth and struck him out looking in the seventh. “That was the best start of my career by far, from execution to stuff to results,” said Cease, who allowed just one hit in seven innings. “That’s definitely a good one to build on.” Cease and relievers Kendall Graveman and Liam Hendriks limited the Angels to two hits and struck out 15 as the Sox gained a split of the four-game series in front of 13,112 at Guaranteed Rate Field. “I don’t think you can say enough about what Cease has been able to do the whole year,” said Hendriks, who struck out the side in the ninth and collected his fifth save. “He’s been unbelievable.”...
    The Chicago White Sox couldn’t get much going offensively for eight innings Sunday against the Los Angeles Angels. The ninth was a different story. The Sox sent 11 batters to the plate and scored five runs. It still wasn’t enough as they fell 6-5 in front of 27,664 at Guaranteed Rate Field. “I was pleased with them not only just in the ninth, we had a bunch of hits against a guy (Angels starter Michael Lorenzen) who really pitched well,” Sox manager Tony La Russa said. “Give him a lot of credit. It’s just what we did in the ninth inning was very special. Could have been real special. We took our shot.” Down a run, the Sox loaded the bases with two outs. Ryan Tepera, the third Angels pitcher of the inning, got Gavin Sheets to groundout to first to end the game and hand the Sox their 11th loss in the last 13 games. “We fought in the ninth,” Sox center fielder Luis Robert said through an interpreter. “That’s a positive. We were able to come back in...

    The Chicago White Sox lost pitcher Lucas Giolito to an injury and then lost a lead on opening day, falling to the Detroit Tigers 5-4 on Friday at Comerica Park. Javier Báez drove in Austin Meadows with a single with two outs in the ninth, handing the Sox a tough loss to start the season. The Tigers scored two in the eighth to tie the game at 3.

    BRIGHTON finally landed a winning Prem punch thanks to some Boxing Day stunners. The Seagulls had gone 11 league games without a victory before Brentford arrived on the south coast – scoring just seven goals in the process. 4Brighton comfortably beat Brentford at the Amex to move back into the top-half on Boxing DayCredit: PA 4Leandro Trossard opened the scoring after 34 minutesCredit: Rex 4And Neal Maupay's peach sealed the Seagulls' first win in 12 before half-timeCredit: Getty To say a touch of class has eluded them is a serious understatement. But Santa must have treated Brighton’s goal-getters to some shooting boots as they delivered at the 12th time of asking to end the division’s longest winless streak. Leandro Trossard got the party started with real panache – a first time volley outside the box to lob Bees keeper Alvaro Fernandez in the 34th minute. And eight minutes later Neal Maupay fired a rocket from range into the top corner. At last, a killer instinct from Brighton. Where has this been since their previous three points on September 19th against...
    Wednesday, October 20, 2021. 12:34 p.m. Summary BOSTON – Jose Altwe scored a draw in the eighth inning and the ninth Houston offense on Tuesday night arose with seven runs. The American Championship Series is tied with two wins on each side. “Now it’s a three-game series with two home games,” Alway said after the game. In a series dominated by Boston offense in particular, the teams traded home runs in the first inning, and then both pitchers hit six zeros in a row on the Fenway Brock scoreboard. Carlos Correa doubled Jason Castro’s single after two strikeouts in ninth place. But it was a start for Houston, with Boston intimidating his pitchers with 10 home runs from the start of the series, including three Grand Slam records in two matches. “They’ve been doing it for us throughout this series,” said Astros manager Dusty Baker. We can do the same. “ After Alex Breckman scored a solo Homer in the Green Monster seat in the first inning, Sander Bogarts sent a ball down Lance Town Street to...

The winner of 20 tennis grand slam tournaments, who announced on Friday that he is ending the season due to foot problems, shot 79 strokes, the same score as his friend Joan Suasi, who works on the organization chart led by Carlos Costa. , Rafa’s representative. Nadal is six strokes away in scratch mode -without applying hndicap- from the leader, Nicols Gonzlez-Camino.

The Balearic Middle Handicap Championship concludes tomorrow. Nadal was already sixth eleven months ago in the autonomic for professionals.

    Last night, Alec Manova hoped to echo his magic from the first game at the Bronx, but it didn’t happen. Why? No, not because the starter went without luck. Not because he underestimated Marlins. That’s because you don’t get the Majors pitcher overnight. The big problem is that his effect is not the usual bite to the bullets. Manoah hung up a few balls, which pleased Corey Dickerson, Jazz Sisholm Jr. and Jesus Aguilar, who all hit a long ball against Manoah. The result? From 0.00 ERA, he is at 3.86 due to the three runs he has scored in 3.1 innings. “It’s a wonderful feeling to know you can go out there and give the ball to anyone. They ‘re going to give it all to you.” Alec Manova on Blue Jasmine Bulb: pic.twitter.com/5s4MrlSy6q – Sportsnet (p Sportsnet) June 3, 2021 I’m going to go home after he recalls: he can throw in the Majors, but I do not know if he can suffer in the Majors because he never did in the Milbore.

    The A’s had all the pieces in place to, at least, extend Friday’s game. But the Baltimore Orioles escaped with a tense 3-2 win over Oakland in the A’s homecoming at the Coliseum. The A’s ninth inning threat came with a leadoff single from Sean Murphy and a desperation single from Matt Chapman. But Mitch Moreland’s lineout and fly outs from Seth Brown and Elvis Andrus ended the possibility. Mike Fiers looked promising in his 2021 debut against the Orioles. But the hard hits escalated, the A’s offense didn’t have many answers, and Fiers was on the short end of the A’s loss. Fiers’ command was strong in the first and second innings. He painted the black with his high-80s fastball with a nice changeup and curveball. But Cedric Mullins and Austin Hays tagged Fiers for back-to-back home runs in the third. Mullins’ groundout RBI scored another run in the fifth. Fiers ate six innings, collecting three strikeouts with two walks. He kept the A’s in the game, which has been his calling card during his...
    Matt Chapman was the hero of the day for the A’s, hitting a go-ahead double in the ninth inning off closer Diego Castillo to score Jed Lowrie from first base and secure the A’s 3-2 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday. With the win, the Oakland A’s split a close four-game series with the Rays at Tropicana Field. Of the four games, the largest margin of victory was the Rays’ two-run win on Wednesday. The rest came within one run. Chapman had given the A’s a 2-1 lead earlier off Rays starter Shane McClanahan. In his first Major League start, Tampa’s top pitching prospect McClanahan first inundated the A’s with a fastball that, at times, reached 101 mph with movement and a mid-90s mph slider. But the A’s lineup fought fire with fire. Tony Kemp singled off him to lead off the third and moved to second on a wild pitch, but he was tagged out at home from second on Mark Canha double. Ramón Laureano scored Canha on a first-pitch double into the...

    Carlos Rodón was one slider away from perfection. On Wednesday, the White Sox starting pitcher pitched a no-hitter, but not since Armando Galarraga’s imperfect game has there been such a heartbreaking closing inning: While Rodon ended up with the no-no, he plunked catcher Roberto Perez on the foot on a slider that just got away from him, ending the perfect game bid with one out in the ninth. MORE: The most recent no-hitter for all 30 MLB teams Rodón, though, wasn’t too broken up about it. “All you can do is laugh about it. It wasn’t meant to be,” he said after the game. “… I’d have let it hit me, too.” White Sox pitcher Carlos Ródon hits Indians catcher Roberto Pérez in the foot with one out in the ninth to break up his perfect game.

    Michael Cohen will meet for the ninth time with Manhattan prosecutors this week, it was revealed Monday, in their continued criminal investigation into Donald Trump and his namesake business. The meeting will add to the more than 300 hours Trump's former fix-it man has already spent coordinating with various inquiries, a source familiar with the investigation told New York Daily News. As Cohen meets with Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr.'s team he is still arguing the court should let up on his house arrest sentence due to his continued cooperation against his former boss and participation in several rehabilitation programs. Vance's team probing Trump Organization is led by white-collar prosecutor Mark Pomerantz. Cohen was convicted in 2018 of campaign finance violations while working as Trump's personal attorney – he was sentenced to three years in prison after pleading guilty to nine charges. Former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen (pictured left on March 19) will meet with prosecutors for the ninth time this week in his continued cooperation with their investigation into the Trump Organization.

    SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — In a condensed 60-game season in which the Giants won 29 games, five different pitchers recorded a save for first-year manager Gabe Kapler. Four of those pitchers –Trevor Gott, Tyler Rogers, Sam Coonrod and Tony Watson– had multiple saves, but for much of the season, the Giants didn’t have a reliever emerge as the preferred candidate to preserve a ninth-inning lead. Kapler’s closer-by-committee approach wasn’t necessarily popular with fans, but it did allow the Giants to learn a lot about a young bullpen and which relievers were capable of handling the stress of high-leverage situations. What exactly did a front office led by Farhan Zaidi determine? The Giants needed more veteran arms. As the club prepares for the 2021 season in which ending a four-year playoff drought is the team’s primary objective, left-hander Jake McGee has become the front-runner to be the Giants’ closer. “I’d be very comfortable with Jake McGee in the ninth inning based on his track record, his composure, his track record, his success so far this camp,” Kapler...

    Today it would be unthinkable that some other actress gave life to these roles, but at the start of the production one of the pillars that supports the plot, Anne was not the first option to embody ‘Andrea’, it was nothing less than the ninth, thus He revealed it during his virtual visit to the ‘RuPaul Drag Race’ show. “No matter who it is, I still get hives (from my nerves before appearing in front of people)”, shared with fun Hathaway, who also accepted that contrary to expectations, “it makes me very nervous to speak in public”, so she used her formula for calming down when this happens: getting her hair done. The question was very specific for the expected revelation to arrive: “Have you fought tooth and nail for a character?”, To which Anne answered more seriously: “How much time do you have (to talk)?” And he assured that he has had to fight for many of the roles he has obtained in his career but for one more in particular. In ‘The Devil Wears Prada’, he said: “I...

    Retired All-Star pitcher and conservative firebrand Curt Schilling is lashing out at 'coward' baseball writers after his ninth Hall of Fame rejection, and now he's demanding to be removed from the ballot in 2022 so that his candidacy can be considered by committees comprised of former players and managers.  'I'll defer to the veterans committee and men whose opinions actually matter and who are in a position to actually judge a player,' Schilling wrote on Facebook. 'I don't think I'm a hall of famer as I've often stated but if former players think I am then I'll accept that with honor.' He later wrote on Facebook that he has asked the Hall of Fame to remove his name from next year's ballot. Hall of Fame Board Chairman Jane Forbes Clark said in a statement that the board 'will consider the request at our next meeting.'  Schilling, a right-handed ace who won World Series titles with Boston and Arizona, finished 16 votes short of the 75 percent threshold necessary for enshrinement. He got 71.1 percent this time after coming up 20...
    Few moments are as exciting as scoring on the last play to win a game. For Alexander Ramos, that joyous feeling can also be compared to getting the opportunity to attend college after becoming a Bright Futures Scholar. This is his story. There’s an old saying in sports that goes: “Even the last minute has 60 seconds.” And when you’re an up-and-coming student looking for an opportunity to succeed in life, that last minute, with all of its 60 seconds, can be the difference between winning and having to go through the struggle all over again. For Alexander Ramos, a student from Miami currently attending the University of Florida in Gainesville, getting his ACT score high enough to obtain a Bright Futures Scholarship was like scoring on the last play of the game. “When I got back my ACT score, I saw that I met the 100% requirement and I was just ecstatic. I would definitely compare that to hitting a home run in the ninth inning.” The sports analogies suit Alexander well, as he spent most of his teens...
