Keys lost...Yanks hope for better from Gray...Ginn goes to school
LONDON (AP) — Madison Keys has become the latest top-10 seeded woman to lose at Wimbledon after her comeback fell short. The American fought back from a set and two breaks down only to falter near the end as she lost to Russian qualifier Evgeniya Rodina in the third round.
LONDON (AP) — Fourth-seeded Alexander Zverev completed another five-set comeback to reach the third round at Wimbledon. Zverev beat American Taylor Fritz in a match that was suspended on Thursday after the third set. No. 8 Kevin Anderson also advanced, beating No. 25 Philipp Kohlschreiber of Germany after losing just eight of 61 points on his first serve.
TORONTO (AP) — In a season full of highlights for the New York Yankees, right-hander Sonny Gray has been one of the team’s biggest disappointments in his first full season with club. Gray will try and rebound from his worst start of the season when the Yankees begin a weekend series in Toronto tonight against the Blue Jays. After being acquired from Oakland last season, Gray is 5-6 with 5.44 ERA this season and is coming off an 11-0 loss to Boston last weekend in which he allowed six runs in only 2 1/3 innings.
CHICAGO (AP) — Two weeks ago, the Chicago Cubs suffered through an embarrassing four-game sweep in Cincinnati — beginning a stretch of six losses in seven games. Chicago has won six straight games since that rough patch, and has the opportunity to make amends with the Reds when the two teams begin a weekend series at Wrigley Field.
UNDATED (AP) — Right-hander J.T. Ginn says he will not sign with the Los Angeles Dodgers and will instead attend Mississippi State. The 19-year-old from Brandon High School in Mississippi was selected with the 30th overall pick in last month’s amateur draft. The deadline for draft picks to sign, unless they have exhausted college eligibility, is 5 p.m. Eastern time today.
