🏒Hockey: Team USA’s 3–0 win over Finland last night wasn’t enough to get them to the top of the IIHF Women’s World Championship Group A leaderboard. Instead, archrivals Canada lead the pack, while the Czech Republic leads Group B. Team USA will go for three straight wins tomorrow when they face the ROC at 2 p.m. ET.

⚾️Baseball: While the Baltimore Orioles are coming dangerously close to breaking their club’s longest losing streak, a few players at the Little League World Series (LLWS) were setting records worth celebrating.

  • As for the offense, Texas’ Ella Bruning had two hits in her squad’s 6–0 win on Friday, making her just the third girl to have multiple hits at a single LLWS. The kids are alright.
