A Look at Sports: St. Louis Cardinals, Floyd Mayweather Jr., and More

Jun 15, 2017

   Eric Thames homered and drove in three runs, Matt Garza pitched five innings in his first start after a short stint on the disabled list, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the St. Louis Cardinals 7-6 last night.

   St. Louis second baseman Kolten Wong left last night's game against Milwaukee in the sixth inning after suffering tightness in his right forearm. Wong, who went 1 for 2 with an RBI double in the second inning, was replaced by Greg Garcia. Wong has hit safely in all six games since returning from the disabled list on June 6.

   Mike Moustakas hit his 18th home run leading off the second inning, Jorge Bonifacio and Lorenzo Cain followed with back-to-back shots in the third and the Kansas City Royals beat the San Francisco Giants 7-2 yesterday to complete a two-game sweep.

   Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant say they would seriously consider less money to keep the core of the champion Golden State Warriors intact. Curry said all the pieces they have are important to the equation of winning a championship and competing for a title every single year.

   The first pick in this year's NFL draft limped off the field yesterday with a left foot injury. Browns rookie Myles Garrett got hurt while rushing quarterback Brock Osweiler during a two-minute drill and stayed on the ground for about a minute. Coach Hue Jackson did not know the severity of Garrett's injury and was not going to speculate until the 21-year-old is examined by doctors.

   Floyd Mayweather Jr. will come out of retirement to meet UFC star Conor McGregor in an Aug. 26 boxing match. Mayweather would return at the age of 40 to face a mixed martial arts fighter who has never had a pro boxing fight. Oddsmakers immediately made Mayweather a big 11-1 favorite in a fight that will take place in a boxing ring and be governed by boxing rules.
