Indians get 100th win...LeBron James hurts his ankle...NHL player won’t protest
CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Indians have notched their 100th win, a 5-2 victory over the Minnesota Twins. Carlos Carrasco struck out 14 and Jason Kipnis and Roberto Perez hit two-run homers. It’s just the third time Cleveland has won 100 games in a season.
CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Cavaliers say LeBron James turned his left ankle during practice last night. A team spokesman says James had X-rays, which were negative. The three-time NBA champion didn’t practice today so he could undergo treatment. He’s expected to be day to day. The severity of the injury isn’t known.
CLEVELAND (AP) — Browns rookie defensive end Myles Garrett is back on the practice field. The top overall pick in this year’s draft returned today after being sidelined with a high right ankle sprain. Garrett has missed Cleveland’s first three games — all losses — but now that he’s been cleared to practice, there’s a strong chance he’ll make his NFL debut on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals.
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — San Jose Sharks forward Joel Ward says he has decided not to protest by kneeling during the national anthem. Ward had said he was considering a protest to raise awareness to the issues of racial inequality and excessive force by police against minorities in the United States. But he now says he doesn’t want the focus to be on the anthem and wants to work on bringing minorities and law enforcement together. Ward, one of about 30 black players in the NHL, is from Canada.
