 ๐Ÿ€Mystics: After a much-needed players-only meeting, the Mystics notched their third win of the season, defeating the Minnesota Lynx 85โ€“81 on Tuesday. Tina Charles continued her MVP-caliber season, scoring 31 points while Natasha Cloud recorded a career-high six (!!!) steals and added 11 points of her own to reach 1,000 career points. On cloud nine.

  • The Mystics play the LA Sparks tonight at 7 p.m. ET. Letโ€™s see if Washington can string together two consecutive wins for the first time this season.

โšพ๏ธNationals: The Nats snapped a three-game skid with last nightโ€™s 9โ€“7 victory over the American League (AL) leader Tampa Bay Rays in 11 tense innings. Third baseman Starlin Castro delivered a big RBI double in the 11th to help the Nats earn that curly W.

  • It doesnโ€™t get easier for the Nats: they begin a four-game series with the National League (NL) leader, the San Francisco Giants, tonight at 7:05 p.m. ET. Gulp.

๐ŸŽ“โšพ๏ธCollege: Odicci Alexander and JMU softballโ€™s historic run ended on Monday, but hopefully UVA baseball can channel their postseason magic. Unseeded UVA walked off into the best-of-three Super Regionals, and theyโ€™ll square off against Dallas Baptist on Saturday at 12 p.m. ET. โ€™Hoos ready?
