 ⚾️White Sox: The White Sox were swept by the Yankees in their weekend series, concluding with yesterday’s 5–4 loss. After starting out with a three-run deficit, the White Sox fought back with home runs by José Abreu, Yasmani Grandal and rookie Andrew Vaughn

  • Sadly, White Sox closer Liam Hendriks walked Yankee legend Aaron Judge in the bottom of the ninth with the bases loaded, giving New York the win. Not our best. 

⚾️Cubs: In the tenth inning, our bae...erm, Báez (Javier, that is), crushed a two-run homer to finally put the Cubbies on the board after nine scoreless innings against the St. Louis Cardinals. The North Siders won the game (and the series) 2–1. 

🏀Sky: With an ankle sprain keeping star Candace Parker out of the lineup, the Sky lost 93–85 to the NY Liberty in their home opener yesterday. The highlights? Diamond DeShields’ team-leading 22 points and Courtney Vandersloot’s 16 assists. We’ll get ’em next time.

⚽️Red Stars: The Red Stars played their first game at home with fans since before the pandemic on Saturday. But despite the energy from the crowd, the game turned out to be a snoozer, ending in a scoreless draw against Gotham FC. Sigh. 

🎓🥎🥍College: Both the Northwestern and Notre Dame softball teams’ seasons were ended by the bats of the Kentucky Wildcats in the NCAA tournament this weekend. The purple and white were eliminated on Saturday, while the Irish lost both games in the regional final yesterday. Womp.

On the field, the Irish men’s lacrosse team lost 14–13 in overtime to the Maryland Terrapins in the quarterfinals yesterday. At least we still have the Northwestern women’s lacrosse team to root for in their tournament’s semifinals. Go for that gold.
