⚾️Nationals:  The best-in-the-league San Francisco Giants swept the Nationals with yesterday’s 3–1 beat down. The loss marked the Nats’ ninth in the last 11 games as they wobble into the All-Star break in fourth place in the NL East. Sadboi hours. 

  • Looking toward future (and hopefully better) seasons, the Nats selected shortstop Brady House with their 11th overall pick in last night’s MLB Draft. Keep up-to-date on all the picks here.

🏀Wizards: The Wizards interviewed more assistants for their head coaching position this week: the Nuggets’ Wes Unseld Jr., the Mavericks’ Jamahl Mosley, and the Bucks’ Darvin Ham and Charles Lee. Now three weeks into the hiring process, it’s clear they plan on hiring a first-time head coach, so why not the Spurs’ Becky Hammon? Asking for a friend. 

⚡️Rapid recaps:

  • 🏀Thanks to Tina Charles’ team-leading 34 (!!!) points, the Mystics beat the Chicago Sky 89–85 in overtime on Saturday in their final game before the Olympic break. Going out on top.

⚽️The Spirit snapped the North Carolina Courage’s four-game winning streak on Saturday, beating them 2–0 off the strength of Ashley Hatch’s two goals. Putting the team on her back!
