The 16 runs scored by the Cards were the most by an NL team this year, until the Giants game last night. San Francisco combined for 27 hits and 23 runs in their win against the Rockies last night. The 23 runs were the most by the SF Giants in franchise history.
Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman threw a 101 mph fastball near the head of pinch hitter Michael Brosseau while closing out his first save of the season, prompting the benches to empty after New York ended a six-game losing streak against the Tampa Bay Rays with a 5-3 victory Tuesday night. Chapman’s first pitch to Brosseau with two out in the ninth inning whizzed past his head, and umpires met before issuing warnings to both benches amid a budding rivalry that’s been dominated this season by Tampa Bay. The Rays are 7-2 against the Yankees and lead second-place New York by 3½ games in the American League East. Chapman struck out Brosseau to end it, and Brosseau began walking toward the visiting dugout before turning back to exchange words with someone on the Yankees. The dugouts and benches emptied and players gathered near home plate, but they mostly kept their distance before dispersing to their respective clubhouses, and umpires stepped in.

UFC President Dana White is ready and willing to make a fight between Jon Jones and Brock Lesnar happen. White told TMZ “he’s heard the rumors” and said “if Brock is ‘seriously interested’ in fighting Jones, he’s more than happy to put it together.” Lesnar has split time between WWE and UFC over much of the past two decades. He was most recently under contract with WWE and fought at WrestleMania 36, but he’s no longer under contract with the promotion. Therefore, he is hypothetically free to fight in the UFC, even if it’s for just one bout
