LUIS URIAS’ (OOH-RYE-US') RBI SINGLE IN THE BOTTOM OF THE TENTH INNING
WAS THE GAME-WINNING HIT FOR THE MILWAUKEE BREWERS……AS THEY

GAME SERIES IN MILWAUKEE. THAT LOSS ENDED A THREE-GAME WINNING
STREAK FOR THE TIGERS………

CENTRAL MICHIGAN ARE IN THE FIELD OF 64 FOR THIS YEAR’S NCAA
BASEBALL TOURNAMENT……AND BOTH WILL PLAY OUT OF THE SOUTH BEND
REGIONAL, BEGINNING ON FRIDAY. THE WOLVERINES WILL OPEN WITH A
GAME AGAINST UCONN, WHILE THE CHIPPEWAS WILL TAKE ON NOTRE
DAME…………


NAOMI OSAKA ANNOUNCES IN A RELEASE ON MONDAY THAT SHE’S
WITHDRAWN FROM THE FRENCH OPEN……BECAUSE HER STANCE ON NOT
DOING PRESS CONFERENCES HAS BECOME A DISTRACTION….AND THAT THE
TIME AWAY FROM TENNIS WILL BE GOOD FOR HER ‘MENTAL HEALTH’…………


FINALS FROM THE STANLEY CUP PLAYOFFS LAST NIGHT: THE TORONTO
MAPLE LEAFS COMPLETE THEIR EPIC COLLAPSE, WITH A 3 TO 1 LOSS TO

MEANWHILE, THERE WAS ANOTHER FAN INCIDENT IN THE NBA PLAYOFFS
LAST NIGHT……..AS A FAN RAN ONTO THE COURT - AND DISRUPTED PLAY -
LATE IN THE THIRD QUARTER OF THAT 76ers-WIZARDS GAME. THAT’S NOW
FIVE FAN-RELATED INCIDENTS OVER AN EIGHT-DAY SPAN………A NUMBER
THAT SHOULD CAUSE CONCERN FOR NBA OFFICIALS AND OWNERS…
