Detroit lost its ninth straight, matching a streak from September.

The Tigers haven’t dropped 10 in a row since their 119-loss season in 2003. This is a learning process for a lot of our young guys, Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire said. We’re not swinging the bats great, and we’re playing some very good teams right now. That combination will do some damage to you. Lowrie […]

NBA Draft 2018: LiAngelo Ball goes undrafted

Translation: We don’t need LaVar Ball around any more than he already is. LiAngelo could still latch on to a different summer league squad or NBA G League team, but his lackluster skillset and family baggage make that seem unlikely. Standing 7-2 with a 7-6 wingspan and a 9-6 standing reach, Bol immediately piques your […]

NBA Draft 2018 trades: Tracking draft-night deals

NBA Draft night marks the unofficial start of the league’s offseason, and trades are always a major part of the proceedings. Teams work to improve current sent and future rosters as they exchange picks and players. Sporting News is tracking all the deals announced Thursday at the 2018 draft in Brooklyn, N.Y. Two other trades […]

The Orioles get on the board in the first inning as Manny Machado hits a RBI single and makes it to second on an error.

On a steamy day that proved too daunting for Angels starting pitcher Tyler Skaggs, 38-year-old Albert Pujols coolly delivered the game’s pivotal hit. Pujols’ RBI double highlighted a five-run eighth inning, and Los Angeles beat the Orioles 6-2 Saturday to extend Baltimore’s latest losing streak to seven games. Gametime temperature was 93, and the humidity […]

Adalberto Mondesi doubled to open the ninth and Moustakas delivered a two-out single to center field to drive home the only run of the game for the Royals.

Outfielder Jorge Bonifacio was recalled and back in the lineup for the Royals on Friday after completing an 80-game suspension for testing positive for a performance-enhancing drug. Bonifacio was suspended in March after testing positive for Boldenone, which is an anabolic androgenic steroid. Bonifacio started the game in left field and went 0 for 3 […]

Brooklyn seemingly got better value with Davis, one of the league’s top backup bigs during his three years in Portland.

In his one full season, he played in 40 games but averaged only 2.2 points. More than a decade after he was drafted, King told the Seattle Post-Intelligencer he knew the Sonics’ orthopedic surgeon better than he knew coach George Karl. King lasted four years with the Sonics but spent a lot of that time […]

The Mariners added two more runs on five hits in the third inning to take a 6-3 lead.

It was another impressive win for the Mariners on a night of uniforms that were supposed to represent the year 2027. Dee Gordon wore his hat backward and Nelson Cruz showed off his giant biceps in the sleeveless attire. Dee put so much effort into it, so it was his night, Healy said. But Nelson […]
