Stephen Piscotty and Jedd Gyorko both homered for the Cardinals. The Cubs got five innings out of their bullpen tonight and the only blemish was a somewhat cheap solo homer from Randal Grichuk . Bryant hit another RBI double in the second and Contreras sent his seventh homer halfway up into the bleachers in left-center to make it 7-0. Wainwright gave up seven runs in a career-low two innings in the start.
The men's team reportedly unofficially broke the world record in training in Newport, Wales, shortly before flying to Rio. Dane Bird-Smith has claimed Australia's sixth medal in walking in the past four Olympics with bronze in the men's 20 km walk.
Anthony scored 31 points on the night he became the US men's Olympic career scoring leader, combining with Irving for all the Americans' baskets in the fourth quarter of a 98-88 victory over Australia on Wednesday night. He led all scorers with 31 points, including a bunch of huge three-pointers, and set a big Olympic record in the process. Coach Geno Auriemma said the team did nothing special during that stretch other than just play hard defensively.
But New Zealand's poor form at the tournament continued as they were knocked out of medal contention by number one seeds Fiji 12-7. "You're asking me?" he said. "They're incredibly disciplined people and if they get told to do a job and stick to a game-plan they do". Switching off their phones is one thing the Japanese have in common with their semi-final opponents Fiji, who have also imposed a social media ban.
The Herd & Horns was just one of the many watch parties. It was one of those big-boy type of plays down in the red area and Ryan finished it off. "We have to beat the guys, especially the guys up front". I'll focus on the two guards for a second. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers lost their preseason opener against the Philadelphia Eagles 17-9 . The 6-foot-5 Wentz was able to spot receivers and get the ball out quickly to them.
Whether Guardiola's unique possession orientated style will be compatible with the physical, dynamic nature of the Premier League remains to be seen. Keeping Calum Wilson healthy would be huge. They will create more chances. Signing Sinclair was a good pickup, as well as Zuniga. The latter has won a league title in six of his past seven seasons, after all, so is hardly an ineffective purist, not least because of his discipline and demanding work ethic.
The scoreboard added an exclamation point. Simone Biles and Aly Raisman take first and second in the all-around. Without skipping a beat, Biles tweeted back that North merely needed a Simone Biles leotard from company GK Elite to be "my mini me!" "I'm really, really happy".
More substantially, she became the first African-American swimmer to win individual Olympic gold. In 2008, Jeff Wilste, the author of Contested Waters: A Social History of Swimming Pools in America, talked to NPR's Rachel Martin about how "black Americans were typically relegated, if a pool was provided at all, to a small indoor pool that wasn't almost as appealing as the large, outdoor resort pools that were provided for whites".
A downpour limited the Cincinnati Bengals to a 30-minute practice Tuesday afternoon. He really is a good athlete. "We don't want anybody getting hurt here". They were teammates at MS and there were eyes made when the Vikes picked Treadwell at No. 23 just before the Bengals picked No. 24. "I think he's matured quite a bit, and I think he's got a lot of good football left in him".
Brazil finally found its scoring touch in the men's soccer tournament at the Olympics, the host country advancing to the quarterfinals by beating Denmark 4-0 and avoiding an embarrassing elimination in front of the home fans. The dominating U.S. teams are back on the court. Whether the locals tune in when men's play begins Thursday is anyone's guess. After being tested by Australia, the US men's basketball team takes on Serbia, which lost to France by a point.
It has so far been a frustrating summer in the transfer market for Arsenal and Wenger conceded yesterday that his prudent approach might have to give way to pragmatism before the August 31 transfer deadline. With a dire injury crisis hitting the heart of defense, Arsenal may be forced in starting fullback Nacho Monreal in central defense against Liverpool as they open the Premier League season this Sunday.
And now it's time for Phelps to get his own flashback moment - back in 2001, Phelps was just another pimply 15-year-old boy (granted, one who'd competed at the 2000 Olympics already) who just wanted to get his learner's permit. Lochte still holds the world record at 1:54:00. Today , he's one of the greatest athletes of all time . Those little tiny things I've been saying to Bob every day.
After winning the Premier League with Leicester , N'Golo Kante has joined Chelsea for £32 million. Then there's my pick to win it all, Manchester City. 8'500 seats are being added to the Main Stand. Ayew scored an impressive 12 league goals for the Swans last term; don't be surprised if he hits at least 15 this season.
The lefty hit.305/.378/.463, with 23 home runs, over 693 plate appearances. Prince Fielder missed only 13 games over eight seasons from 2006-'13. Looking back, was Fielder a good signing for the Tigers in the two seasons he played? After being traded to the Texas Rangers before the 2014 season, Fielder's campaign was cut short because of a season-ending neck surgery.
Will he be booed? Instead, Rodriguez will be the designated hitter in his final game before being released and transitioning into a role as special adviser and instructor. He will enter his final game with 696 home runs. In 64 games he's batting just 199 with 44 hits and nine home runs. On Friday, his fans will say goodbye.
I saw that today and I thought, 'Oh, thanks Ryan! Having led by 0.01 seconds at half-way, and in third place after the breaststroke, Lochte struggled on the final freestyle lap and finished without an Olympic medal for the first time in the event.
King has been in the water since she was 7, but they say her moves weren't always Olympic ready. With two past doping suspensions, the Russian was initially excluded from the Rio Games but succeeded in a last-minute appeal last week to be allowed to compete.
USA's Katie Ledecky competes in a Women's 800m Freestyle heat during the swimming event at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games at the Olympic Aquatics Stadium in Rio de Janeiro on August 11, 2016. Ledecky said she had got to bed at about 3.15 a.m and, not being one for sleeping in, was up again at about 9 a.m. It's a disappointment, but the support that I've received has shown me so much more than I could have ever expected about - you're so much more than just the number of medals, you're so ...
But at a North Carolina rally on Tuesday, he told a crowd of supporters that gun rights proponents could do something to prevent the selection of the kind of judges preferred by Hillary Clinton. "We're going to get everyone at the table, not just Republicans and Democrats but businesses and labor unions and experts and most importantly, Americans like all of you".
United States' Michael Phelps, top, and Singapore's Joseph Schooling compete during a men's 100-meter butterfly heat during the swimming competitions at the 2016 Summer Olympics, Aug. In Friday's final, Ledecky beat her own world record by two seconds, with a time of 8 minutes, 4.79 seconds. Maya DiRado gave the Americans another gold, pulling off a furious rally on the final lap to upset "Iron Lady" Katinka Hosszu of Hungary.
That proved more than two per cent clear of the field and hauled the British team of Dujardin, Carl Hester, Fiona Bigwood and Spencer Wilton from fourth to second. The U.S. were back in the medals thanks to a high score of 80.644 from Florida-based Laura Graves, who abandoned a career as a hair stylist to train her horse Verdades.
The Mercury News , based in San Jose, California, published an article on their Olympic coverage with the headline "Olympics: Michael Phelps shares historic night with African-American". Their talent and performances are undeniable - particularly after Biles won all-around gold by a landslide, while Raisman atoned for a fourth-place finish in 2012 to take silver in 2016.
Left-handed Moeen, who was dropped on 9 and 15 by Azhar Ali, cashed in on the chances by sharing half century stands with Jonny Bairstow (55) and Chris Woakes (45). Vince, still playing at The Oval but stationed away from the bat, saw his place at third slip taken by James Anderson when England's all-time leading wicket-taker wasn't bowling.
African-American swimmers have won medals before. When the first public pools were established in America's Northern cities at the turn of the 20th century, class prejudices fueled decisions of where municipal pools were built to keep out poor and working-class people, regardless of race.
It would seem likely the historic moment will come in the pool or athletics stadium with those two sports accounting for more than half the USA gold production. Then, he'll close out these Olympics in the 4x100 medley relay. I want to be an inspiration, but I would like there to be a day when it is not 'Simone the black swimmer'.
Phelps is expected to resume his rivalry with South African Chad le Clos in a battle for gold in the 100 meters butterfly. "It hasn't really sunk in yet", Schooling said. Ledecky was barely breathing hard. "Right now, I'm taking it one race at a time", said Franklin, who is struggling to understand her puzzling lack of form this year.
Cozart, who had two hits, scored when Joey Votto followed with a triple. Tyler Holt's double off Matt Bowman (1-4) broke a 4-4 tie in the eighth. Yadier Molina started and ended a five-run rally in the ninth inning as the St. "We just weren't able to do much with Garcia". Molina walked in the fourth inning to extend his streak of reaching base safely to 21 games. The Reds lost to the Cardinals on August 19, 2014, when J.J.
It's not normal that we can win the league. "I think the bookies have to pay 6,000/1 now", he said. All the world is curious (about) what will happen with Leicester. "Riyad will stay with us". He has a settled, cohesive group, which is more than many clubs can say, and even with the added Champions League requirements, it is hard to imagine Leicester will go quietly into the night.
Brazil's interim president Michel Temer spoke briefly to the crowd to officially open the Olympics, but he was greeted by boos from a section of the crowd, reflecting the dissatisfaction of the Brazilian people with the government. Brazil welcomes the world with open arms. I was not one of them. "I'm honored to be chosen, proud to represent the U.S., and humbled by the significance of carrying the flag and all it stands for", said Phelps, a 22-time swimming-medal victor.
Payet, meanwhile, played alongside Ayew during their time with French Ligue 1 side Marseille, from where they both headed for England last summer albeit different destinations. "I said we would add five players to the squad", he added. We were lacking options there and we really wanted to do it. "I think we have a good balance".
Michael Phelps celebrates winning the men's 200-meter individual medley final at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games at the Olympic Aquatics Stadium on August 11, 2016 in Rio de Janeiro . Phelps and Lochte have dominated the 200 IM race internationally since they both swam it in 2004 at the Athens Olympics. Coming into the race, the American had already won three golds and clearly had no reservations about winning a fourth.
Take a bow, folks! In AoA, we are introduced to new players in the Task X Force viz. KGBeast, Black Spider, King Shark and Killer Frost, all of whom having significant roles to play. The depths of the characters were the only redeeming factor in this movie . Most of the character development occurs between Deadshot and Flagg.
Amanda wasn't dumb in assembling her team; she readily gives them what she herself worked for, but only enough to satiate their addiction temporarily and then she takes it all back, leaving them dependent and willing. As many have commented recently, the Joker and Harley are most definitely not #RelationshipGoals. Apparently, even Warner Bros couldn't figure it out either, and so he was 86'd.
Biles won gold and teammate Aly Raisman took the silver medal. When the floor exercise judges validated what Raisman and every other gymnast has known for years - that Biles is the greatest of her generation and perhaps of all time - the U.S.
Chasing a wide delivery from Alzarri Joseph, the wicketkeeper-batsman edged a catch to his West Indian counterpart Shane Dowrich to give the debutant fast bowler his third wicket of the innings. Earlier, Ashwin reached his century with a six off Roston Chase immediately after lunch to register his fourth century of his Test career. Hello and welcome to CricketCountry's live cricket blog and live cricket updates' post of the third day's play between India and West Indies , in the third ...
