⚾️MLB: Things couldn’t be decided in nine innings last night, but in the bottom of the extra 10th inning, the White Sox’s Yasmani Grandal drilled a walk-off RBI to give the South Siders an 8–7 win over the Tampa Bay Rays. HYFR! Even with injuries mounting, the Sox sit atop the American League. Daydreaming about October yet, Sox fans?

  • Yesterday was a different story for the Cubs, who were swept by the NY Mets with a 6–3 loss. The North Siders’ batters have been in a funk and were kept there by Mets pitcher Jacob DeGrom. Sigh.

🏀Sky: Courtney Vandersloot earned her 2,000th assist and Allie Quigley scored a season-high 23 points in the Sky’s 105–89 win over the Minnesota Lynx on Tuesday. Vandersloot is only the fourth in WNBA history to reach that milestone. Proud.

  • The Sky head into tonight’s game having won three straight, while their opponent, the Connecticut Sun, are missing their top scorer, Jonquel Jones, as she represents Bosnia in the FIBA European championship. Is that...opportunity knocking?

⚽️What to watch: Both Fire FC and the Red Stars return to the pitch on Saturday, facing the Columbus Crew at 7:30 p.m. ET/6:30 p.m. CT and the Washington Spirit at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT, respectively.
