Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner went went 3 for 5 with three runs scored

It’s been a rough year for the Mets, but ace Jacob deGrom turned in a brilliant performance in a 2-1 win over the Phillies. The Mets righthander allowed just one run in seven innings, while serving up just three hits with 12 strikeouts. This was deGrom’s third game this season with at least 12 strikeouts, which is tied with Chris Sale for most in MLB.

Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner went went 3 for 5 with three runs scored, a home run (15) and six RBIs in a 13-4 win against the Astros. Gardner became the first Yankees leadoff hitter with six-plus RBIs in a game since Hank Bauer in 1952.

Braves pitcher Mike Foltynewicz took a no-hitter into the ninth inning in Oakland, but lost it in the bottom of the ninth inning. Foltynewicz still struck out eight with four walks and just one hit over eight-plus innings

Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo was back batting third in the lineup Friday in a 5-0 loss to the Reds. After serving some time at leadoff, Rizzo struggled in his old old spot. He went 0 for 4 with a strikeout, dropping his average to .258 on the season. The Cubs desperately need Rizzo to hit with Kris Bryant injured.

Yes, left end Akiem Hicks is a beast who should produce even better in a contract year. But he’s the only sure bet on the front of the Bears’ 3-4 under Fangio. Nose tackle Eddie Goldman has all the potential in the world, but his shaky injury history forced Chicago to sign John Jenkins for depth in the wake of Will Sutton’s departure.

Kids J.J. Jansen Jersey The Bears hope their savior in this position group will be second-year right end Jonathan Bullard, who provided flashes last season but struggled with consistency. He and Mitch Unrein again will split time unless Bullard improves and earns the vast majority of snaps. Without Cornelius Washington and Ego Ferguson, depth on the defensive line is an issue.

Le’Veon Bell reveals release date of ’26 Savage’ rap album

Le’Veon Bell is staying busy off the field this offseason.

The Steelers running back announced Wednesday his second rap album titled “26 Savage” will be released July 21.

After playing through a groin injury for weeks then aggravating it during the AFC Championship Game in January, Bell underwent a procedure on his core muscle in March and has been in recovery mode leading up to training camp.

Bell, who is set to earn $12.7 million if he doesn’t reach a long-term contract agreement with the Steelers by July 15, has rushed for 4,045 yards and 26 touchdowns since being drafted in 2013 despite missing 14 games because of injuries and suspensions.

Loomis is keeping the band together — Sean Payton and Drew Brees — and trying to wring one more good run out of it. A lot is riding on Adrian Peterson’s addition: not that much money, but how he affects the offense. Moving Brandin Cooks before they had to pay him was a major gamble, so the remaining receivers and the return from that trade have to do well.

When the Glazers surprisingly fired Lovie Smith last offseason, a lot was lifted onto Licht’s shoulders. Dirk Koetter improved as head coach as the season went on. The additions on defense have been good enough to complement Jameis Winston and his growth. But Licht is still on the hook for the trade-up to draft kicker Robert Aguayo … who’s already being challenged for his job by Nick Folk. The competition is already making the Bucs look bad — imagine if Folk wins.warriors_007-115x115

All should be selected by Francona for the AL All-Star team.

The Colts fired Ryan Grigson, understandably so, but not until late January, weeks after teams had made decisions with coaches and, seemingly, their front offices. The only one gone before then was Trent Baalke of the 49ers, again not unexpectedly.

Aside from Michael Vick’s prime, I can’t think of a time where I had enjoyed watching the Dirty Birds more than I did at the end of the season. The Falcons went on a tear from Week 14 throughout the rest of the season. Their lowest-scoring game for the rest of the year happened to come in the Super Bowl, despite scoring 28 points in 36 minutes and 29 seconds of game time (yes, I counted). Every other game, they posted at least 33.

Karl Joseph Youth Jersey Houston’s Dallas Keuchel, who is 9-0 with an AL-best 1.67 ERA, is the favorite to start the All-Star Game on July 11 in Miami, though he hasn’t pitched since June 2 because of neck discomfort. Kansas City’s Jason Vargas is 10-3 with a 2.27 ERA and Red Sox ace Chris Sale is 8-3 with a 2.82 ERA and a league-high 136 strikeouts.

All should be selected by Francona for the AL All-Star team. It’s just a matter of who the Indians manager picks 鈥?his own guy or someone else. It’s a good thing Francona still has about three weeks to make that decision.

Teague probably will fall off this list soon. But between Towns and Butler, this team has some MVP candidates on deck. Remember, Butler was the seventh-best player by RPM this past season. If Towns’ defense improves, he’ll make this a no-doubt super duo in no time. But only five SuperPoints keep them from the upper echelons.

How they move up: You don’t have to squint hard at all to see a superteam consisting of Towns, Butler and Wiggins, but the third piece is probably further away than most would think. If another team is higher on Wiggins, don’t be surprised if the new Minnesota regime, which did not draft him, puts Wiggins in a trade for a win-now player — for the second time in his career.

McCants did explain how he got involved in the Big3

There were already serious issues across the league that were destined to go unresolved by the end of camps. Andrew Luck wasn’t going to be back from offseason shoulder surgery. Kirk Cousins was almost a sure bet not to be re-signed. Clearly, at least in hindsight, nobody seriously intended to sign Colin Kaepernick.

Tanner Pearson Limited Jersey Since his last NBA game in 2009, McCants has played professionally in Brazil, Lebanon, Venezuela and the Dominican Republic. He said fans in those countries are definitely a little more enthusiastic than what he had been used to.

They’re more involved and more hands on, McCants said. They have a sense of passion that’s really only been seen in the soccer world. They’re just deeply passionate about their teams, to an extent that, we as Americans haven’t seen as much. It’s one of those things you just have to kind of see for yourself. It’s kind of hard to explain.

McCants did explain how he got involved in the Big3, which has former NBA player Roger Mason as its president and features several high-profile former NBA players like Allen Iverson, Charles Oakley, Gary Payton, George Gervin, Julius Erving, Clyde Drexler, Rick Barry and Rick Mahorn as coaches.

In seven years, he amassed 385 receptions, 5,253 receiving yards, and 35 touchdowns. Decker only missed four games in his career before last season, so durability was never an issue with him.

The Titans’ passing game ranked just 25th in yards last season, but Mariota has shown promise in his young career. Decker could be the reliable target that Mariota hasn’t always had. Matthews led the team in receiving last year but was inconsistent. Tennessee also has Delanie Walker, a veteran tight end who was the second-leading receiver last year.
