The Giants closed within 6-5 on Hundley’s one-out double in the seventh, but the Nationals got it back on Spencer Kieboom’s RBI double in the bottom half of the inning.

I feel it right now, Tanaka, speaking through a translator, said in front of his clubhouse stall a half-hour after the final out. I think we’ll probably have a clearer picture tomorrow.

The Yankees, a big league-best 41-18, already lost No. 5 starter Jordan Montgomery to Tommy John surgery on Thursday. Tanaka is 7-2 with a 4.58 ERA in 13 starts.

Tanaka allowed one hit, a home run into the second deck in right by Brandon Nimmo on his second pitch. Just 1 for 24 with a walk and a sacrifice at the plate in his big league career, he reached when his grounder bounced off the heel of first baseman Adrian Gonzalez’s glove for an error. Tanaka took second on Gleyber Torres’ single and advanced when Gardner walked.

It was shallow, so I wasn’t sure if I was going to go or not, Tanaka said of Judge’s opposite-field fly.

We’ve been playing good baseball since the end of last week, right-hander Aaron Sanchez said. To finally scratch out some wins, it’s good for us. It keeps guys a little bit loose in here. We don’t play as tight out there.

The Orioles have lost three straight and 10 of 12. Baltimore is 9-26 on the road and 19-44 overall, both worst in the majors.

Smoak drew a one-out walk in the 10th and went to second on Kendrys Morales’ single. One out later, Givens hit Grichuk to load the bases.

Grichuk broke a 2-2 tie when he homered on Kevin Gausman’s first pitch of the seventh inning. It was Grichuk’s fifth homer of the season and his second in two games.

Toronto’s lead was short-lived. Baltimore tied it 3-3 without a base hit in the eighth, using a hit batter, an error, and a walk to load the bases before Jonathan Schoop scored from third on Tyler Clippard’s wild pitch.

Josh Rosen adds twist to bizarre story of Browns exec who met UCLA’s volleyball team

One of the most bizarre stories that came out after the NFL Draft came last week when Browns executive Alonzo Highsmith was asked about the top quarterbacks in the draft.

During an interview with the Canton Repository, Highsmith had some very reasonable explanations for why he liked certain quarterbacks and why he didn’t really care for a few other ones. For instance, Highsmith was high on Baker Mayfield because the former Oklahoma quarterback lost two receivers in 2017 and was still productive. That makes sense.

Well, for one, we now know that Highsmith didn’t take the volleyball coach’s advice and speak to Rosen’s girlfriend. During an interview on The Rich Eisen Show this week, Rosen revealed a twist to the story: Highsmith didn’t try to get a single detail about Rosen from the quarterback’s significant other.

I thought it was interesting that he didn’t talk to my girlfriend, Rosen said. Maybe he was scared of someone actually saying something good about me? I don’t know, I thought it was funny.

Also, Rosen was just as befuddled as everyone else by the entire situation.

I will not talk about him after this interview, OK? Bradshaw said in the NFL Network’s A Football Life: Chuck Noll documentary. Did I respect him? Of course I did. Like him? No, I didn’t like him.

One of the best quotes that applies to Brady-Belichick actually comes from a Cowboys player in the 1970s who was asked to describe the relationship between Tom Landry and Roger Staubach. Landry was a stone-faced Belichick before Belichick.

Tom punches the computer, calls the play, does everything but hand the ball off, said guard John Niland in 1978. And Roger is a great lieutenant.

In this case, Belichick is the computer, and Brady is the lieutenant. They are the best duo in NFL history.

And it doesn’t matter if they don’t always get along.

By Saturday, the officials said, Haspel had agreed to continue with her nomination. tigers_055-115x115

Sources within the UCLA program praised Rosen’s attention to detail.

Again, though, does he win? And shouldn’t it matter how his teammates see him, since they’ll be the ones spending every day with him in-season?

Former teammates we spoke with who asked not to be named said it might have taken a while to warm up to Rosen, but by the end of this last year, we loved the guy.

And that matches with what one senior-level executive for an NFC team told me.

Should we judge a man by how he acted as an 18-year-old? Is that predictive of how he’ll be in the pros? Perhaps…if the same characteristics persist in his game.

At the end of the day, your teammates will like you if you win, one scout said. Period.

Philip, he’s still playing like a young man , Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn said, per Chargers .com. This is going to be his squad. If we bring in another quarterback, it’s definitely a guy we feel like can sit for a couple of years and play behind Philip and learn, and maybe be the future.

Yes, Lynn also gave the obligatory mention of the backups on the roster — Cardale Jones and Geno Smith — adding I wouldn’t look past those two right now. Eventually, though, a replacement must arrive for Rivers, whether its Jones, Smith or a draft pick. Rivers knows this, but he’s also not conceding his job anytime soon.

I’m on the board of New Jersey-based Write on Sports , which promotes writing, critical thinking and self-esteem in mostly at-risk middle-school students. The students are encouraged to become better writers by interviewing athletes and sports media people and writing stories about sports (which theoretically would interest them more than some other topics) in both after-school programs and in 11 summer camps.dolphins_079

After regaining the lead, the Bolts opt to squib kick and that gives the Raiders good field position.

Jones has long championed Bryant and went out of his way to support him this offseason, but team executive VP Stephen Jones — in a crafty bit of father-and-son good cop/bad cop — emphasized in February that keeping Bryant around at his current cost would be “a tough one.”

In many ways, the Cowboys have made it clear this was a possibility, but it remains a stunning move for fans to digest. Bryant has been the lively, volatile, loyal beating heart of the Dallas offense since the start of the decade.

The Timberwolves, who won despite 12 lead changes, blew a nine-point lead the final minute of regulation last Saturday’s overtime home loss to. Both players have options free agency.Hartline seems bitter that Pryor is having some degree of success after just now switching from QB, something Hartline did high school.-‘s World Baseball participation is more difficult for the Twins than they initially believed.

Appeared seven playoff as the Indians advanced to the SHL semifinals before falling to Vaxjo.But its association with the progression of ALS inspired us to increase our efforts this field the past years.We did some walk-throughs, got some reps there and went against the defense warm-ups.

Dallas is sitting on 10 total draft selections as they try to rebound from a 9-7 season that kept them short of a return to the NFC playoffs. Although they are not too desperate at any one position, the Cowboys need to keep getting a jump on the eventual changes tied to age and expiring contracts.

We take a deep dive into what Jerry Jones and Dallas will and should be thinking come NFL Draft weekend.

Wide receiver: Dez Bryant, who turns 30 in November and has seen his play fade, was cut. Terrance Williams, a shaky No. 2, anyway, turns 39 in September and is coming off a broken right foot. With Cole Beasley, Ryan Switzer and newcomer Allen Hurns, the Cowboys have plenty of options in the slot, so the focus should be on a big-target replacement for Bryant and a big-play upgrade from Williams on the outside.dolphins_020

Landon Collins confirms he will undergo second surgery to heal fractured forearm

New York Giants star safety Landon Collins is facing a second surgery on the right forearm he fractured in late December that will likely sideline him until training camp.

Collins insisted Wednesday that he was not lying with that assessment of how he felt, and was surprised when doctors broke the news to him. He had been training without limitation, but tests showed his forearm is not healing properly around the plate put there in December.

And considering his physical style of play – he was injured while making a tackle – Collins could risk further injury if he continues to train without correcting the issue.

Collins has topped 100 tackles in each of his three previous seasons, earning All-Pro status in 2016. He said Monday he is not focused on his contract status.

“I’m just letting it just work itself out. I’m not really going through the negotiating part,” Collins said of his contract status. “I’m going to leave that between [general manager] Dave Gettleman and my agent and then go from there. From that point on, I’m just here trying to make new friends with my boys, new relationships and be a captain like I’ve always been.”

Collins and the Giants might have to wait until the summer to see him back on the field.

Jackson has sometimes been an afterthought in the draft’s quarterback conversation, which Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, Baker Mayfield and Josh Allen headline. However, he remains a legitimate option for teams looking for QB help.

Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reported Monday multiple scouts believe he will be taken in the first round.

The 2016 Heisman Trophy winner is known for his running ability, finishing his career with 4,132 rushing yards and 50 touchdowns. However, he has also done damage as a passer with 9,043 career passing yards and 69 scores.

His 57.0 percent completion rate has been in question, but it is higher than Allen’s 56.2 percent.la_kings_015
