Game 7 in Toronto

Craig Custance ESPN Senior Writer 

Blues tried sitting on two-goal lead and it failed. Jamie Benn's goal with 2:36 remaining tied it and this game is headed to overtime in Dallas.

Doug Padilla ESPN Staff Writer 

The Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw has nine career games of 10 strikeouts with no walks, the most in baseball since the start of 2014. Through seven innings Sunday, he has exactly 10 strikeouts and no walks. The Dodgers hold a slim 1-0 lead over the Padres.

Valeri bends in long free kick

Diego Valeri put Portland ahead 2-1 over Toronto with a fantastic free kick from well outside the 18.


Curry: 'Pretty good' chance of playing Game 3

Although, Steph Curry did add that his knee is "still painful".


Wallace Matthews ESPN Staff Writer 

The Yankees are trying to avoid a sweep at the hands of David Price and the Red Sox tonight and Joe Girardi has shaken up his lineup a tad. Alex Rodriguez moves back up to 3rd in the batting order, Aaron Hicks and Ronald Torreyes get to start and Chase (.150) Headley bats sixth tonight. Why, you ask? He's hitting .421 against Price (8-for-19).

93-73 Warriors heading into the 4th. Somehow the Warriors must soldier on sans Anderson Varejao

Kevin Arnovitz ESPN Staff Writer 

Apparently the first set of double technicals wasn't enough to defuse the fracas between Anderson Varejao and Gerald Henderson. The pair are whistled for a fresh set of techs just before the end of the third quarter and were summarily tossed from the game.

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

You can't start a brutal 10-game road trip any better than the Nationals have. They won as many games in St. Louis this weekend (3) as they've won in the previous eight years combined.


Kevin Arnovitz ESPN Staff Writer 

Anderson Varejao and Gerald Henderson exchange words after the play after Henderson trips over Varejao's leg. Players on the floor instantly tilt their heads up to see replay on big screen. None follows, but they continue to check back, peering upwards. Double technical fouls are ultimately assessed to Varejao and Henderson.

Danica Patrick had x-rays on her chest but they showed no broken bones after what she called one of the hardest hits of her career in a crash at Talladega and one of the scariest with fire after she stopped. "Everything is fine. I saw my chest on the way out (of the care center). It looks very symmetrical."

Harper gets the golden sombrero

Bryce Harper has a rough day at the plate, going 0-for-4 with four strikeouts in a win vs. the Cardinals.


Doug Padilla ESPN Staff Writer 

A determined-looking Clayton Kershaw is perfect through four innings against the Padres. The Dodgers left-hander struck out the first four batters he faced and there has been nothing close to a hit. The Dodgers are in the midst of a six-game home losing streak and will be winless on the entire homestand if they fall today.

Brad Keselowski won the GEICO 500 at Talladega Superspeedway for his 2nd win of the season. Kyle Busch finished 2nd, followed by Austin Dillon, Chase Elliott, Jamie McMurray, Kurt Busch, Tony Stewart, Clint Bowyer, Ryan Blaney, and Trevor Bayne. Despite the threat of rain, the race was was run the full distance without any issues. There were 10 cautions, including one for a large wreck that collected 17 cars.

Thompson outscored Blazers in first quarter

Golden State's Klay Thompson got off to a hot start, scoring 18 points in the opening frame while the Trail Blazers only tallied 17.


Tony Stewart @TonyStewart

After watching today, you can understand why the Dr's wanted me to get out at the first caution. They definitely were right. Exciting race👍🏼

Kevin Arnovitz ESPN Staff Writer 

Portland made up some ground in the second quarter, and trails Golden State 65-51 at halftime. After a chilly first quarter, the Trail Blazers have started to hit a few shots. Ed Davis chipped in six points in the quarter as a presence down low, while Allen Crabbe (nine points) and Mo Harkless (seven points) have been bright spots. Portland's dynamic backcourt of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum continue to struggle from the field. They're a combined 3-for-19 for 14 points. Golden State is also abusing Portland on the offensive glass -- they've recovered 11 of their 25 missed field goal attempts.
