Wings, Stars, Rangers, FC Dallas
🏀Wings: After trading the No. 7 pick to the LA Sparks yesterday, the Wings still have three (!!!) top-10 picks in tonight’s WNBA draft and we’re stoked that expected No. 1 overall Texas’ Charli Collier is likely staying close to home. As for the No. 5 pick, keep your fingers crossed for two-time Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year Aari McDonald still being available.
🏒Stars: Following yet another tough overtime loss on Tuesday, Stars fans got more bad news yesterday with the announcement that goalie Ben Bishop and right winger Alex Radulov will miss the remainder of the season due to injuries. Is it October yet?
⚾️Rangers: Thanks to a five strikeout, 5.2 inning gem from pitcher Kohei Arihara, the Rangers picked up a 5–1 win over the Tampa Bay Rays yesterday to take a 2-1 series lead. Pitcher Jordan Lyles will look to keep the lockdown defense rolling tonight at 7:10 p.m. ET/6:10 p.m. CT as the Rangers hunt for the series win and their third straight.
⚽️FC Dallas: After advancing to the conference semifinals last season, FC Dallas is back this Saturday, taking on the Colorado Rapids at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT. With 2020 team-leading scorer Franco Jara returning for his second year and veteran goalkeeper Jimmy Maurer in net, this team is poised for another deep playoff run. !
