Nats Blank Jays, Yanks Pound The O’s, ACC Announces Football Season
Asdrubal Cabrera’s 3-run triple in the 10th inning broke a scoreless
tie and propelled the Washington Nationals to a 4-0 win over the Toronto Blue Jays last night. Max Scherzer struck out 10 in 7 and 1/3 innings of shutout baseball, while Daniel Hudson picked up the win in relief. The 2-4 Nats take on the Jays this afternoon in DC. Air time is 3:35 on CBS Sports Radio 1450.
With Miami’s and Philadelphia’s season on hold, the New York Yankees
beat Baltimore last night 9-3 at Camden Yards. DJ LeMahieu went 4-for-5 for the Yanks, who were supposed to have played the Phillies last night. Gerrit Cole picked up his second win for New York. The O’s, who were scheduled to play Miami this week, will host the Yankees again tonight at 7:05.
The ACC announced an 11-game football season yesterday that will begin September 12th, and includes FBS independent Notre Dame playing a full league schedule. They will play 10 conference games and one non-conference contest of their choosing. The Irish will be eligible for the ACC title. All of this depends on if it’s allowed by public health guidelines.
And, the NBA restart begins tonight with 2 games at the league’s bubble in Orlando. A 16-team playoff bracket will be finalized next month, with 12 of the league’s 22 teams at Disney World already having clinched a spot in the postseason. The Wizards open up against Phoenix tomorrow at 4pm.
