THE TIGERS ENDED A FOUR-GAME LOSING STREAK WITH A 5 TO 2 WIN OVER
THE WHITE SOX LAST NIGHT IN CHICAGO. IT WASN’T EASY FOR STARTER
JOSE URENA (OOH-RAIN-YAH)……..WHO GOT THE WIN, DESPITE THE FACT
THAT THE TIGERS COMMITTED FIVE ERRORS OVER HIS SEVEN INNINGS OF
WORK.....


MEANWHILE, IT WAS A HUGE NIGHT FOR THE TORONTO BLUE JAYS’ VLADIMIR
GUERRERO, JR…….WHO SLAMMED THREE HOME RUNS AND DROVE IN
SEVEN RUNS IN TORONTO’S 9 TO 5 WIN LAST NIGHT OVER THE WASHINGTON
NATIONALS……..


OFFICIALS WITH MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL BELIEVE THAT 70% OF PLAYERS,
COACHES AND MANAGERS HAVE BEEN VACCINATED AGAINST COVID-19, AT
THIS STAGE OF THE SEASON. THAT NUMBER, HOWEVER, FALLS SHORT OF
THE 85% MARK THAT OFFICIALS SET AS THE BENCHMARK BEFORE THE
START OF THE 2021 SEASON.........


OLIVER BJORKSTRAND’S GOAL IN THE SHOOTOUT ROUND WOULD GIVE THE
COLUMBUS BLUE JACKETS A 1 - NOTHING WIN OVER THE RED WINGS, LAST
NIGHT, IN COLUMBUS. IN HIS FIRST GAME WITH THE WINGS, ROOKIE JOE
VELENO (VUH-LAIN-NO) BLOCKED TWO SHOTS - BUT DIDN’T SCORE - IN HIS 15
MINUTES OF ICE TIME……


THE NCAA BOARD OF GOVERNORS ANNOUNCE IN A RELEASE LAST NIGHT
THAT THEY’VE EXTENDED THE CONTRACT OF CURRENT NCAA PRESIDENT
MARK EMMERT THROUGH 2025. THE 68-YEAR OLD EMMERT HAS SERVED IN
THAT ROLE SINCE NOVEMBER OF 2010………..


ITEM OF NOTE FROM BOXING THIS MORNING, AS IT’S BEEN CONFIRMED THAT
AN EXHIBITION BOUT BETWEEN FLOYD MAYWEATHER AND LOGAN PAUL WILL
OFFICIALLY TAKE PLACE ON JUNE 6th IN MIAMI……..


THE FAVORITE - ESSENTIAL QUALITY - WILL START FROM THE FAVORED 14th
POSITION FOR SATURDAY’S 147th RUNNING OF THE KENTUCKY DERBY……AS
OFFICIALS HELD THE DRAW TO DETERMINE POST POSITIONS
YESTERDAY…
