🎓🏀MBB: UCLA almost forced Saturday’s Final Four game into double overtime, but ultimately fell to the top-ranked ’Zags on a heartbreaking bank shot. Still, what a game. What a season.

  • Not only were Johnny Juzang and Jaime Jáquez Jr. clutch on the court, their impact on Asian-American and Mexican-American communities is immeasurable. Representation matters.

Dodgers: After dropping the season opener, the Dodgers won the last three games in their bizarre series against the Colorado Rockies. From centerfielder Cody Bellinger’s home run-turned-single to left fielder Zach McKinstry’s inside-the-park home run, there was no shortage of purr-fectly weird moments for the defending champs.

Angels: Heads up, the Angels won their series with the Chicago White Sox. Everyone was really looking forward to Shohei Ohtani both pitching and hitting in the same game last night...and he did not disappoint, throwing multiple pitches over 100 miles per hour and smashing a home run on the first pitch of his first at-bat. It’s Sho Time!

Speaking of pitchers, Ty Buttrey released a statement that he’s leaving baseball: “money and proving people wrong are short term motivators, especially when you never actually loved the game you dedicated the last 24 years of your life to.” Wishing you the best, Ty.
