Milwaukee never trailed after Thames hit an opposite-field homer to snap a 3-3 tie in the third inning. Braun's 651st extra-base hit moved him into second place with Paul Molitor on the Brewers' all-time list. RHP Junior Guerra (strained right calf) began workouts on a treadmill.

    New York Yankees Trade Johnny Barbato To Pittsburgh Pirates

    Sport

    The Pirates have, in the past, acquired players like Arquimedes Caminero under similar circumstances and ended up taking them seriously, so it's possible they could do the same with Barbato. He also owned a 45.7 percent ground ball rate at the Major League level. The 24-year-old began the year as a starter in Triple-A, but he has extensive experience out of the bullpen.

    Mathieu Debuchy and Carl Jenkinson have been restricted to U23 outings, and clearly the Bellerin we're watching at the moment is a long way from the one who so excited fans last season. The side that started against Palace was the best we had available but the whole lot of them deserve to be dropped. Henry is now an assistant to Roberto Martinez with the Belgium national side and a Sky Sports pundit.

Fourteen Capitals have more than 20 points including T.J. Oshie and Ovechkin, who both scored 33 goals this season.

  • Bucks steal Game 1 from Raptors thanks to stifling defense

    Sport

    For whatever reason, postseason Lowry is nothing like regular season Lowry and I don't understand why. "A lot of that led to tough shots, challenged shots". For a awful nine-minute stretch, the Raptors failed to score a field goal while the Bucks built an 85-71 lead. After that stellar second quarter by the Raptors, Milwaukee just muscled up and took the game over.
