    PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Freddie Freeman singled three times and drove in two runs, Julio Urías pitched five shutout innings and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Philadelphia Phillies 4-1 on Friday night for their sixth straight victory. Trea Turner doubled and had an RBI for the NL West-leading Dodgers, who opened a 10-day, 10-game road trip. The Phillies continued to struggle without slugger Bryce Harper, who missed his fifth straight game after having a platelet-rich plasma injection in his injured right elbow on Sunday. Philadelphia lost for the fourth time in the last five and avoided its third shutout defeat over that stretch when J.T. Realmuto hit an RBI double with two outs in the ninth. The RBI snapped a 21-inning scoreless skid for the Phillies, who have totaled just four runs in four games since returning home Tuesday after winning five of seven on a West Coast trip. The Dodgers got on the board in the first on Justin Turner’s RBI groundout off Ranger Suarez (4-2) and made it 3-0 in the second on Freeman’s two-out, two-run single to...
    DENVER (AP) — David Perron scored twice as St. Louis switched up its line combinations, Jordan Binnington made 30 saves and the Blues beat the Colorado Avalanche 4-1 on Thursday night to tie their second-round series at a game apiece. Jordan Kyrou added a goal and Brandon Saad sealed it with an empty-netter for the Blues as they rode another stellar performance from Binnington. The Blues goaltender stopped 51 shots during a 3-2 overtime loss in Game 1. Binnington’s flashing his 2019 form, when as a rookie he led the Blues to a Stanley Cup title with a 16-10 mark and a 2.46 goals-against average. Gabriel Landeskog scored on a power play early in the third for Colorado to make it 2-1. But Perron answered right back with his seventh goal of these playoffs. Darcy Kuemper stopped 28 shots. Two of the goals he allowed were redirected off the stick of a defenseman. Nathan MacKinnon and the Avalanche found open ice a scarce commodity against a physical, hard-checking and more determined Blues squad. Game 3 is...
    CHICAGO — With Tim Anderson on third base, Aroldis Chapman gave up a ground-ball single to Luis Robert as the White Sox rallied for a 3-2 walkoff win over the Yankees at Guaranteed Rate Field on Saturday. Anderson hit a one-out single off Chapman, who was clearly bothered by Anderson’s threat to steal second. Chapman then walked Yoan Moncada. It was the Yankees (24-8) first loss in six games. They have already assured at least a split of this four-game series with the White Sox (16-16) and will go for their 10th series win Sunday in the series finale. The Yankees dropped to 2-7 when they score two runs or fewer this season. It was the first game in the last five the Bombers did not hit a home run, after hitting 11 in their last four games. It’s nothing new for the Yankees lefty Jordan Montgomery. Montgomery came into the start averaging just 2.33 runs of support per nine innings. The Yankees have won two of his five starts and scored at least five runs just once — but only...
    Getty Jaylen Brown, Boston Celtics As their post-season hangs in the balance, the Boston Celtics are making their way to the Fiserv Forum for game six of their playoff series against the Milwaukee Bucks. Following their May 11 loss, the Celtics are now one game away from elimination and will need to win their next two contests if they wish to progress and face the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference finals. When a playoff series is tied, game five is often considered the most pivotal meeting of the entire round because whoever tastes victory then gains the momentum moving forward. And according to Nick Wright of Fox Sports, the Celtics’ latest loss has all but sealed their fate, with the analyst expecting Boston to fall short in their bid to win a championship this season.

    DETROIT (AP) — Seth Brown hit a tiebreaking, two-run homer in the eighth inning and the Oakland Athletics beat the Detroit Tigers 5-3 on Thursday. Michael Fulmer (1-2) got the first two outs of the eighth, but Jed Lowrie drew a walk and Brown homered to right. The Tigers have lost nine of 10. Oakland came to Comerica Park this week with a nine-game losing streak, but won four times in an unusual five-game series. The Athletics’ only loss came when they were the official home team in the first game of Tuesday’s doubleheader — a game they were originally supposed to host before the season’s first series was postponed by the lockout. A.J. Puk (1-0) pitched two scoreless innings for his first win since topping Kansas City on Sept. 17, 2019. He missed the 2020 season with shoulder issues and was limited to 13 1/3 innings in 2021. Dany Jimenez pitched the ninth for his sixth save in six opportunities. Miguel Cabera made it 3-all in the Detroit sixth with his 601st career double, tying Barry Bonds for 17th...

    SAN FRANCISCO — Alex Cobb’s precision pitching, Joey Bart’s clutch hitting and Brandon Crawford’s third home run of the season paced the Giants to a 7-1 win Wednesday that secured a series sweep of the Colorado Rockies. A sun-splashed crowd of 23,341 watched the Giants notch their first series sweep this season, via their 10th straight win against the Rockies, dating to last August. It also extended the Giants’ win streak to five after losing their previous five. Next up is a Thursday flight to St. Louis, where they’ll play Friday through Sunday before a three-game series in Colorado. Cobb and previously unbeaten Rockies starter Chad Kuhl kept things scoreless through three innings before the Giants broke through offensively. That shouldn’t have been too surprising. The Giants outscored the Rockies 24-8 over the three-game set. It was Bart’s RBI single that highlighted a three-run, go-ahead rally in the fourth inning. His clutch hit came on an 0-2 pitch, and it came an inning after he struck out 33rd time in 58 at-bats this season. Crawford’s third home run of the...
    DENVER (AP) — Jose Iglesias had a two-run double and Connor Joe a two-run triple in consecutive at-bats in the fourth inning after a crucial error by shortstop Alcides Escobar, and the Colorado Rockies rallied to beat the Washington Nationals 5-2 on Wednesday night. Charlie Blackmon added an RBI groundout in the five-run inning, while Austin Gomber (2-2) pitched 6 2/3 strong innings in the Rockies’ fourth win in five games. Lane Thomas hit his first homer and Cesar Hernandez went 2 for 4 with an RBI to extend his hitting streak to 10 games for the Nationals, who committed three errors. Escobar also struck out three times and Washington hit into four double plays as its two-game winning streak was stopped. With the Nationals up 1-0, Escobar booted a grounder that could have been an inning-ending double play for his second error of the game to load the bases. Iglesias followed with a liner to right off Patrick Corbin (0-5), and center fielder Victor Robles then couldn’t make a diving catch of Joe’s hard-hit ball. ...
    TORONTO (AP) — All members of the New York Yankees’ active roster were permitted to cross the border into Canada for a three-game series in Toronto against the Blue Jays beginning Monday night, indicating they are vaccinated against COVID-19. “This is obviously what I had hoped for,” manager Aaron Boone said. “Fortunate that we’re in the position that we’re all able to be here.” Canada’s government requires a person must have received a second vaccine dose — or one dose of Johnson & Johnson — at least 14 days prior to entry. During spring training, Yankees slugger Aaron Judge refused to directly answer a question about his vaccine status. Boone had previously said he would speak to unvaccinated players to stress the importance of being available for games against the Blue Jays this season. Boone acknowledged having such conversations, but would not elaborate on them. “I had some conversations at times with guys, I’ll just kind of leave it at that,” he said. “I feel strongly that this is very much a personal choice. Certainly, whatever happened, I was going...
    MIAMI (AP) — Logan Gilbert kept up his run of impressive starts, Julio Rodríguez hit his first major league homer and the Seattle Mariners ended Miami’s seven-game winning streak, beating the Marlins 7-3 Sunday. J.P. Crawford also homered while Jesse Winker had three hits and two RBIs for the Mariners, who snapped a four-game skid. READ MORE: AAA: Florida Gas Prices On The Rise AgainMaking his first start against an NL club, Gilbert (4-0) held the Marlins hitless until Jon Berti’s two-out single in the fifth. The 24-year-old righty was lifted after allowing Brian Anderson’s solo homer with two outs in the sixth. “I just wanted to finish strong, he had a good swing,” Gilbert said of Anderson’s shot. “That stuff happens, but yeah, I wasn’t too happy with it.” Gilbert allowed three hits, walked four and struck out five. He exited with a 0.64 ERA through five starts. The blast by Anderson was the first earned run Gilbert allowed since season debut against Minnesota April 9. “They had some good at-bats, long at-bats,” Gilbert said. “Made me work out...
    KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Gerrit Cole pitched six sharp innings, the Yankees resorted to manufacturing runs against sloppy Kansas City pitching, and New York went beat the Royals 3-0 Saturday night for its eighth straight win. Cole (2-0) allowed five hits and two walks while striking out six in another dominant start at Kauffman Stadium. The Cy Young runner-up a year ago has allowed only two earned runs in 21 1/3 innings in the pitcher-friendly ballpark. Aroldis Chapman worked a perfect ninth for his fifth save, helping the Yankees improve to 15-6 — just the fifth time since 1959 that the 27-time World Series champions have won at least 15 of their first 21 games. Normally a power-hitting team, the Yankees saw Gleyber Torres and Isiah Kiner-Falefa manage sacrifice flies off Carlos Hernandez (0-1). New York had 18 homers in its previous seven games. Hernandez walked five of the first 15 batters he faced and, at one point, had thrown more balls (37) than strikes (36). But the right-hander limited the damage against a lineup that loves to inflict...
    If the Nets don’t win Game 3, there’s no point in playing Ben Simmons in Game 4. In fact, it would be negligent, irresponsible and downright destructive for them to play him in an elimination game given the circumstances. No team in NBA history has ever come back from a 3-0 playoff deficit, and the Nets, who have so far been unable to solve the Celtics’ league-best defense, have lacked chemistry and cohesion all season, and have been thoroughly outcoached by their former assistant Ime Udoka, don’t look like a team positioned to become the first. Yet the Nets, who the Celtics have bullied with their physicality through Games 1 and 2, think Game 4 — facing a potential 3-0 deficit — is the best time to put Simmons on the floor. Let me remind you that the Sixers rushed Simmons back from a nerve impingement in his lower back in February 2020, a decision that ultimately cost him about a little less than a month of action and would have cost him the entire season had the NBA not...
    MIAMI (AP) — Jazz Chisholm Jr. tripled, doubled and drove in three runs, and the Miami Marlins beat Zack Wheeler and the Philadelphia Phillies 11-3 Sunday. Jesús Sánchez had three hits and two RBIs for the Marlins, who won three of four against Philadelphia in the weekend series. Brian Anderson reached base four times on two walks, a single and hit by pitch. Miami starter Elieser Hernández allowed a run and five hits in six innings. Hernández (1-1) struck out five, walked one and hit a batter. National League MVP Bryce Harper homered for Philadelphia, a solo blast off Hernández in the fifth, and had an RBI double in the seventh. The Phillies have lost five of six. The Marlins chased Wheeler (0-2) in the fourth inning. The 2021 NL Cy Young Award runner-up allowed seven runs and eight hits, struck out three, walked three and hit a batter. Run-scoring triples from Chisholm and Miguel Rojas highlighted a four-run second. Bryan De La Cruz and Sánchez hit RBI singles that scored Chisholm and Rojas. Wheeler (0-2) was removed after a...

    SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Donovan Mitchell scored 29 points and Rudy Gobert had 25 points and 17 rebounds as the Utah Jazz snapped a five-game losing streak with a 122-109 win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday night. Jordan Clarkson scored 19 points, Mike Conley added 18 and Bojan Bogdanovic 11 in his return from injury as the Jazz continued their fight to stay out of a Western Conference play-in game. Utah led wire-to-wire, the fourth game of the season in which it never trailed. But, the Lakers stayed within striking distance until Gobert slammed down Mitchell’s miss to make it 120-104 with 2:54 to play. Russell Westbrook scored 24 points and Dwight Howard had 21 points and 14 rebounds for the Lakers, who were without LeBron James (ankle sprain) and Anthony Davis (foot sprain). Howard even hit a step-back 3-pointer as he reached double figures for the second time in his last 12 games. Lakers have dropped five of six and are 4-14 since beating the Jazz on Feb. 16. Utah’s losing streak included a demoralizing defeat...
    ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Kevin Fiala scored 15 seconds into overtime to send the Minnesota Wild to a 3-2 win over the Colorado Avalanche on Sunday night for their sixth straight victory. Kirill Kaprizov and Ryan Hartman also scored for Minnesota, which is the only NHL team this season with at least three six-game winning streaks. Hartman’s tying goal with 5:27 left in regulation sent the game into overtime.

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — RJ Barrett scored 30 points and the New York Knicks made 20 3-pointers to beat Charlotte 121-106 on Wednesday night, snapping the Hornets’ five-game winning streak. Obi Toppin had 18 points and 11 rebounds, and Alec Bunks chipped in with 17 points for the Knicks, who have won three of five. Playing without Julius Randle, who sat out with right quadriceps tendon soreness, the Knicks shot 20 of 45 from beyond the arc against a Hornets team that was slow on closeouts. LaMelo Ball had 32 points and nine rebounds and Terry Rozier scored 18 points for the Hornets. Charlotte entered the night one game behind the Brooklyn Nets for the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference but never led against the Knicks, who are 11th in the East. New York opened a 40-24 lead in the first quarter, shooting 68.2% from the field while making eight 3-pointers. The Hornets couldn’t recover. New York entered the fourth quarter up 12 before Isaiah Thomas’ 3-pointer cut the lead to eight with 7:07 left, giving Charlotte some momentum....
    CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — Azar Swain scored 23 points and Yale held on for a 66-64 victory over Princeton to win the Ivy League tournament on Sunday. The Bulldogs will play in the NCAA Tournament for the sixth time. Yale last went to the NCAAs in 2019 and was to be the league representative for the cancelled 2020 event. The Ivy League cancelled its 2020-21 season. Second-seeded Yale, which led nearly the entire game, was up by nine with a minute left. But Ethan Wright hit a 3-pointer and Jaelin Llewellyn added two more, the final one with 24 seconds remaining, to get the top-seeded Tigers within two after Yale’s Bez Mbeng had made a pair of free throws for Yale. After Yale’s Isaiah Kelly missed two free throws with 14.4 seconds to go, Llewellyn drove inside but his effort to kick out a pass went off the bottom of the backboard and struck him as he went out of bounds with 1.5 left. Yale, which had two five-second violations in the final minutes, threw a long inbounds pass...
    DALLAS (AP) — Julius Randle scored 26 points against his hometown team and the New York Knicks won for the fifth consecutive time in Dallas, blowing out the Mavericks 107-77 on Wednesday night. RJ Barrett added 18 points for the Knicks, who won their third straight following a seven-game losing streak and improved to 3-2 on a season-long seven-game road trip. The Mavericks missed their first 19 3-point shots while falling behind by 28 in their lowest-scoring first half of the season. Dallas trailed 61-34 at the break as a five-game winning streak ended. Luka Doncic scored 17 of his 31 points in the third quarter, when the Mavericks got within 14 before consecutive buckets from Randle steadied the Knicks. New York, which is chasing the final play-in spot in the Eastern Conference, swept the two-game season series from the playoff-bound Mavericks, winning by an average of 26.5 points. The Mavericks shot a season-worst 13.6% from long range (6 of 44) and 31.4% overall. The previous low from beyond the arc was 13.8% (4 of 29) in a...
