The Cardinals didn’t look great last night as they lost to the Brewers 18-3.  Jack Flaherty took the loss. The benches did clear after something was said from the Brewers locker room, luckily no players were ejected but both managers were.  It’s another double header for the Cards and Brewers tonight.  Adam Wainwright gets the start during the afternoon game and a starter for game 2 hasn’t been announced. 

Major League Baseball and the MLB Players Association reached an agreement to host most of the 2020 playoffs, including the division series, league championship series and World Series, in neutral-site “bubbles.” The league unveiled the locations for the postseason Tuesday, also noting the American League playoffs will begin Sept. 29, while the National League will open play one day later on Sept. 30.  The ALDS will be played in San Diego and LA while the NLDS will take place in Arlington and Texas.  The World Series will be played in Arlington.  Here is what we know the players will have to do…players on contending teams will have to quarantine at a hotel for the final 7 days of the regular season.  Get a COVID test daily and if their team is eliminated, the player can leave the hotel. 

The New York Islanders aren’t going home yet. Down 3-1 in the Eastern Conference Final, the Isles forced a Game 6 with a 2-1 victory over the Lightning. Game 5 saw a massive rebound from New York after blowing a 1-0 lead Sunday on their way to a 4-1 loss. Jordan Eberle scored the game-winning goal 12:30 into the second overtime period.

The Washington Capitals announced Tuesday they have hired Peter Laviolette as their new head coach. The two sides agreed to a three-year contract. Laviolette said the following about joining the Caps: “I’m thankful and excited for the opportunity to lead this hockey club. This is a winning organization with high expectations.”  Washington fired Todd Reirden in August after he spent two seasons as the team’s head coach. Washington was ousted in the first round of the playoffs in each of the past two seasons.

Don’t call it a come back…they clearly have done this before.  For the second time this playoffs, the Denver Nuggets have fought back from being down 3 games to 1 and eliminated the LA Clippers last night.  The Nuggets will now take on the Lakers in the Western Conference finals.  In the Eastern Conference Finals, the Heat picked up a game 1 win over the Celtics. 

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas is likely headed to the sidelines for a few weeks with an ankle injury.  The injury comes from a Week 1 win over the Buccaneers after which Thomas believed he could continue playing. Two days of attempted recovery have proven that tougher than originally thought.  The 2016 second-round pick has been durable to start his career and missed only one game in his first four seasons in the league. The three-time Pro Bowler is one of the best offensive weapons in the NFL and led the league in catches the last two years, as well as in receiving yards in 2019.

UFC star Conor McGregor responded to the latest allegations of sexual assault against him with a profanity-laden post on Facebook. “Try set me up all yous f–king want over and over and over the truth will always set me free! Be it baby father claims, rape, indecent exposure. You f–king name it. Never will I fold! The truth is the truth and it gives me wings. I know my character! God bless DNA! God bless Cctv! God bless Eye witness! God bless the truth! The truth is power! I am free! Never will a dime be paid to anyone coming at me with vicious lies! I will fight! And I am only beginning my fight!” The post comes in response to accusations of attempted sexual assault against McGregor in Corsica. He was taken into police custody and questioned but was not charged.

LSU football coach Ed Orgeron said that most of his team has contracted COVID-19. “Not all of our players, but most of our players have caught it,” Orgeron told reporters. “I think that hopefully they won’t catch it again, and hopefully they’re not out for games.” Orgeron later said he wasn’t sure the exact number of players had caught the virus, but said, “Hopefully that once you catch it, you don’t get it again.” The SEC says players who have tested positive don’t have to be tested again for 90 days. In related SEC news, the Florida Gators learned of six new positive tests on their team in their most recent round of testing.
