Revamped Mercury set sights on WNBA repeat

After a chaotic offseason, defending WNBA champ Phoenix is an almost entirely different team in 2015. But with a good nucleus still on the roster, the Mercury sure don't sound worried.

Now

All or nothing for the Mets
MLB 

Andrew Cashner struck out 12 New York batters, but the Mets chased him off in the top of the 5th after scoring 6 runs on 11 hits, including the past 2 runs with 2 outs in the inning. The Pads, meanwhile, have been completely blanked by Jacob deGrom so far as we head to the 6th. Follow live

Freeman on fire in Arizona
MLB 

Freddie Freeman, who hit a homer in the fifth inning, added another run in the sixth with an RBI single to right field to give the Braves a commanding 7-1 lead over the Diamondbacks. Freeman is 2-for-4 with 3 RBIs and a run.

Rays get two back with homer in 4th

With the Lightning in the Stanley Cup finals, it's only natural that a Tampa Bay player named Franklin would get electric. Nick Franklin, not Ben, hit a 2-run homer down the right field line, and the Rays trail the Angels 4-3 in the top of the 4th. Follow live

Gomez's single all Brewers need

Carlos Gomez drove in the game's only run in the 1st and Brewers SP Mike Fiers (6 inning, 0 runs) did the rest. Box score

Yankees tag King Felix for 2 in 4th inning

Brett Gardner scored on a wild pitch and Chase Headley scored on a double play to put the Yankees up 2-0 on the Mariners. Felix Hernandez has allowed more than two earned runs just twice this season. Follow live

A strike has broken out in San Diego

Or something like one, anyway. Of the first 30 batters, 16 went down on strikes, and Mets SP Jacob deGrom has seen 12 batters and retired them all as New York leads the Padres 2-0 in the 5th. Follow live

Dodgers dogging Rockies pitchers

It doesn't matter who the Rockies put on the mound. The Dodgers have scored 11 runs on 16 hits off four pitchers after Howie Kendrick's 3-run blast in the 8th inning. L.A. leads 11-2 in Colorado. Follow live

Astros ride 7th-inning rally to win

Houston scored 4 in the 7th to erase a 2-1 deficit in its 5-2 win over the Orioles tonight. The win guaranteed the Astros' AL West lead would not dip below 4 games. Box score

Angels @Angels

A man of the people that Mike Trout is. The Halo center fielder gives out his 13th souvenir of the year with a 3-run homer to left.

Big fish, big bat, big homer

If you're going to throw low and inside to Mike Trout, you better hit your spot. Rays SP Alex Colome didn't, and Trout homered to left center for a 3-run shot. The Angels lead the Rays 4-1 in the bottom of the 3rd. Follow live

UAB may not be bowl-eligible in 2016

The Blazers could be banned from playing in a bowl until 2017 at the earliest without an NCAA waiver, industry sources told ESPN's Brett McMurphy. Conference USA also has not determined if UAB will be able to compete as a C-USA full football member in its first year back.

After outcry, UAB football coming back

ESPN's Paul Finebaum on OTL: "I've never seen anything quite like this. The people won. The little people. The average guy on the street. Joe Schmo was finally heard."

Meet the Gators

They're a big part of the WCWS defending champs. They've won 14 straight tourney games, one shy of the all-time record. And Florida softball players Lauren Haeger, Alicia Ocasio and Kelsey Stewart want to share some fun facts about what they enjoy off the field.

Bradley's bad outing turns worse

It's not D-backs SP Archie Bradley's night. The Braves added two more runs on Freddie Freeman's eighth homer this season in the fifth inning. Bradley has allowed 5 ER on 8 hits, while Braves SP Alex Wood has allowed only 2 hits in 4 innings. Follow live

The Butler did it for the Rays

Joey Butler hit the very definition of a blooper to center field, and Erick Aybar was unable to track it down as Kevin Kiermaier came around to score. The Rays and Angels are tied 1-1 in the middle of the 3rd. Follow live

Pederson averages longest long ball

Including his 450-foot home run tonight, Joc Pederson's average home run distance is an MLB-high 422 feet (min. 8 HR). Lucas Duda's average ranks second (421 feet), and Giancarlo Stanton and Prince Fielder are tied for third (420 feet).

Hoiberg's college legacy untarnished

Fred Hoiberg rebuilt Iowa State, his alma mater, achieving plenty in a short stretch. Now it seems time for a new challenge with the Chicago Bulls. But "The Mayor" should leave Ames with a new nickname among Cyclones fans, Myron Medcalf writes: 'The Prince'

Seattle Mariners @Mariners

Another clean frame for King Felix. He has thrown 21 pitches in 3 innings, 18 for strikes. Pretty good.
