๐Ÿ€Liberty: In yesterdayโ€™s final game ahead of the Olympic break, the Liberty lost 71โ€“54 to the Connecticut Sun. Though Kylee Shook and Michaela Onyenwere lead the team with 16 and 12 points, respectively, Sabrina Ionescu scored zero points in 21 minutes played โ€” not the young starโ€™s typical stat line. Sigh. 

โšพ๏ธMLB: The Yankees lost 8โ€“7 to the Houston Astros yesterday, but thanks to their earlier triumphs โ€” including pitcher Gerrit Cole only allowing three hits (!!!) in Saturdayโ€™s 1โ€“0 win โ€” the Pinstripes still took home the 2-1 series victory. That NY state of mind. 

  • Meanwhile, the Mets split their series with the Pittsburgh Pirates 2-2 after their 6โ€“5 loss yesterday. The Mets had a one-run lead until the ninth inning, when the Pirates came roaring back to score two runs and steal the win. Womp. 
  • Looking towards the future, the Yankees and Mets both selected studs in the first round of the 2021 MLB Draft last night. Keep up-to-date on all the picks here.

โšฝ๏ธGotham FC: Last nightโ€™s game against the Portland Thorns ended in a scoreless draw, a very good result against the reigning Challenge Cup champions.
