MEXICO CITY - Ultimo Guerrero is one of the biggest names in Mexican wrestling - a world-famous star known for his punishing moves, long black mullet and silver-capped front tooth. He has toured Asia, South America and Europe, won dozens of championship belts and can't walk down the street here without fans pestering him for autographs. But in the months since the coronavirus struck and ...

With one week remaining in the 2020 season, the true magic number for the Chicago Cubs is still at zero. That's the number of positive COVID-19 tests from Cubs players, a perfect score for a perfectly imperfect season and a testament to their commitment to following MLB's health and safety protocols. The Cubs can take pride in that, especially knowing they did it while going through an ...

PITTSBURGH - In a race against a pitch count, Pittsburgh starter Mitch Keller sent a no-hitter into the seventh inning against the Cardinals but did not continue. So as the zeroes he lined up gave way to the walks that would undo them, manager Cards Mike Shildt saw more than a rally. He called it an allegory. Two walks and a hit batter that could prove costly by Sunday primed a five-run ...

All things considered, a six-game Bay Bridge Series sweep was unlikely. The A's had shut out the Giants in back-to-back games on the back half in Oakland after demoralizing their regional rivals at the Oracle Park half weeks ago. The Giants had their say, handing the A's a 14-2 loss Sunday, moving the series to a 5-1 Oakland win. The A's claimed the Bay Bridge trophy Saturday. For the A's, the ...

DETROIT - Detroit Tigers left-hander Matthew Boyd was perfect through four innings, thanks to ditching his slider and leaning heavily on his changeup and curveball. He was taking another step forward in a return from early-season troubles, but the Cleveland Indians got to him for three runs in the fifth inning, and then two more in the sixth. Boyd didn't recover, and the offense didn't help ...

NEW YORK – The Mets' season may have just gone up in smoke. Dark clouds hung over Citi Field and sirens could be heard in the distance as the Braves polished off a 7-0 win over the Mets on Sunday. Inside, the Mets dug themselves an even greater hole with only a week to climb out. Rick Porcello delivered one of his finest starts this year, but it wasn't enough to bail the Mets out of this one. ...

Brad Keller looked every bit the ace of the Kansas City Royals' pitching staff a week ago, pitching his first career shutout. This time out, he made two big mistakes. And the Milwaukee Brewers capitalized upon each of them. Keller allowed five runs on five hits, including two homers, and three walks in five innings. He struck out four. All five runs he allowed came on a pair of home runs by ...

ARLINGTON, Texas - This was a win that is hard to describe. You could say the Falcons choked. You could say the Cowboys were lucky. You could say who cares, the Cowboys won the game. In reality, winning the game is the bottom line, and the Cowboys overcame a 20-0 deficit to start the game to knock off the Atlanta Falcons, 40-39, at AT&T Stadium. Despite the horrendous start (four fumbles on ...

I've said it a million times, but I'll say it again. As much as we want to talk about talent and scheme and playmakers, football is really just a sport of attrition. The 49ers are reckoning with that fact in a big way following Sunday's game in New Jersey. San Francisco lost their top defensive player, defensive end Nick Bosa. A few snaps later, his backup, Solomon Thomas went down with a ...

CHICAGO - The Chicago Bears defense held off a last-minute drive by an opponent for the second straight week to secure a 17-13 victory over the New York Giants on Sunday afternoon at Soldier Field. Daniel Jones' pass from the 10-yard line to Golden Tate as time expired fell incomplete, and Tate was subsequently called for offensive pass interference. The Bears led by 17 points at halftime. The ...

GREEN BAY, Wis. - A red-hot start for the Detroit Lions ended in an even hotter seat for coach Matt Patricia. The team coughed up its second double-digit lead in as many weeks, getting obliterated on the road by the Green Bay Packers, 42-21 on Sunday. Through the first quarter, things were actually looking pretty good for the Lions. Taking the opening kickoff, Detroit efficiently drove down ...
