The Pittsburgh Pirates turned an infield single and a bunt into a rally that prevented Adam Wainwright from getting that 199th career win. A five-run fifth inning — all of those runs coming against Wainwright — led the Pirates to a 6-3 victory last night in Pittsburgh. Disagreements with where the strike zone is led to 3 Cardinal ejections including a career first for rookie outfielder Jordan Walker. He was tossed after his eighth-inning at-bat. Willson Contreras and manager Oliver Marmol were already in the clubhouse after being ejected an inning earlier. Let’s try it again today at 11:35 for a little day baseball. Pirates erupt, before Cardinals’ frustrations do, extending Adam Wainwright’s losing streak – LINK

Castillo, who gave up one run on five hits in seven innings of work to pick up his 10th win of the season, threw fastball after fastball after fastball against the White Sox in a move that had MLB fans both in awe and also howling in laughter at Chicago’s inability to do anything with the pitches.
James Harden‘s bank account is 5 zeros lighter this morning … the NBA slapped the perennial All-Star with a huge 100 grand fine for saying he wouldn’t play for the Philadelphia 76ers, despite being under contract. “The NBA announced today that Philadelphia 76ers guard James Harden has been fined $100,000 by the NBA for public comments on August 14 and 17 indicating that he would not perform the services called for under his player contract unless traded to another team,” the Association announced. “The league’s investigation, which included an interview of Harden, confirmed that these comments referenced Harden’s belief that the 76ers would not accommodate his request to be traded.” It was just last week when Harden blasted the Sixers exec while at an Adidas event, saying, “Daryl Morey is a liar and I will never be a part of an organization that he’s a part of.” Then James doubled down. “Let me say that again. Daryl Morey is a liar and I will never be a part of an organization that he’s a part of.” Harden is set to be a free agent after this season … but he’s made it clear, despite being owed over $30 million, he won’t play for the 76ers.
Like sports and ladies?! Now you can enjoy both at the same time — ’cause Holly Sonders just launched her very own TOPLESS competitive league!! The NSFW athletics organization will be called “Exposed Sportz” … She says she’s enlisted her most attractive friends to give viewers the ultimate viewing experience. “So, I had this crazy idea — a great idea, actually — of getting everybody together and creating a sports league just to show off everybody’s talents … and it’s going to be topless!!” Sonders said. “I can’t believe nobody’s ever thought of this before.” Sonders said she teamed up with respected creatives in the adult industry to make it happen … and there will be videos of “the hottest girls on the internet” participating in all different kinds of sports and activities — and yeah, there’s nudity. “This is almost like Jackass, but with the sexiest women you’ve ever seen. So you’re going to be horny, and you’re gonna laugh and it’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen.” Sonders says she’s pulling out all the stops with Exposed Sportz … hiring the best makeup artists and editors to put out the best product possible — and she sought inspiration from one of the most recognizable adult brands to ever exist. “I know what people want to see,” Sonders – who is dating boxing legend Oscar De La Hoya — added. “I mean, I built my life on TV. So, I know what people are looking for and I know what entertainment value is — especially competition. After doing sports as many years as I did, this is just a new kind of sports kind of inspired by ‘Girls Gone Wild.'” The league debuted hours ago … so go nuts
