    Mystics rout Storm 88-59
    August 15, 2019
    By The Associated Press


    WASHINGTON (AP) Aerial Powers led six Washington players in double figures with 16 points and the Mystics beat the Seattle Storm 88-59 on Wednesday night.

    The Mystics opened the third quarter on a 17-5 run for a 15-point lead as Seattle went without a field goal for four-plus minutes. The Storm pulled within 59-51 entering the fourth, but Washington scored 18 of the next 20 points.

    Elena Delle Donne and Tianna Hawkins each scored 14 points for Washington (18-7), which won its fourth straight to sweep the season series. Kristi Toliver, averaging 13 points and six assists, missed her second straight game with a knee injury.

    Natasha Howard led Seattle (14-12) with 24 points, eight rebounds, four assists and four steals. Mercedes Russell added 10 points.

    Howard scored Seattle's opening eight points and ended the first quarter with 13 as the Storm led 23-16. Seattle was held to 12 points in the second quarter and trailed 38-35 at the break. Howard had 15 points, six rebounds, four assists and three steals at the half.

    WINGS 84, SPARKS 78

    ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -Rookie Arike Ogunbowale scored a career-high 35 points, Glory Johnson added a season-high 20 and the short-handed Wings ended the Sparks' five-game winning streak.

    With Kayla Thornton and newcomer Kristine Anigwe suspended because of an altercation in Saturday's game at Phoenix, it was the rookie who stepped up for the Wings. She scored the last five Dallas points from the free throw line but also scored the Wings' only three field goals in the last five minutes. She also had six rebounds, one of her best, as the Wings outrebounded Los Angeles 37-27.

    Chelsea Gray scored 22 points and Nneka Ogwumike had 21 with nine rebounds for the Sparks. When Ogwumike was knocked to the court setting a screen in the last minute, L.A. coach Derek Fisher stormed on the court to demand a foul and was ejected with 31.3 seconds to play.

    The victory gave Dallas (8-17) a 2-1 series win over the Sparks (15-9). In the two previous games, Ogumbowale had a total of 20 points. This was her ninth 20th point game and first 30 point game for a Dallas rookie since 2014. The Wings have won back-to-back games for the first time since mid-June.

    SUN 78, MERCURY 71

    PHOENIX (AP) - Jasmine Thomas scored 18 points and the Sun held off the short-handed Mercury after giving up almost all of a 20-point lead.

    After the Mercury, playing without the league's leading scorer Brittney Griner, pulled within 69-66 midway through the fourth quarter, Thomas sandwiched a pair of layups around a basket by Jonquel Jones to stop the rally.

    Shekinna Stricklin followed up a pair of Courtney Williams baskets with a 3-pointer that pushed the Connecticut lead to 58-38 at the 6:50 mark of the third quarter. Without Griner, who was serving the first game of a three-game suspension because of a fight in a game last Saturday, battled back. The Sun missed 17 of 20 shots beginning late in the third quarter and the Mercury turned a 10-0 run into a 15-1 surge to make it a game.

    Jones finished with 12 points and 14 rebounds. Courtney Williams had 12 points and Bria Holmes and Alyssa Thomas had 11 each for Connecticut.

    The Sun (17-8) remain in second place after ending a two-game losing streak while Phoenix (11-13) has lost three straight and five of six while holding down the eighth and final playoff spot.

    DeWanna Bonner led the Mercury with 17 points and Yvonne Turner had 15.

    Armadillo: Friday's six-pack

    — Ravens 26, Packers 13— Aaron Rodgers sat this game out.

    — Phillies 7, Cubs 5— Bryce Harper hit a walk-off grand slam.

    — Mets 10, Braves 8— Pete Alonso was 5-5, knocked in six runs.

    — Raiders 33, Cardinals 26— At one point, total yardage was 234-12, Oakland.

    — A bettor at a William Hill sports book put $2,500 on the Cardinals Thursday to win the Super Bowl at 125-1 odds.

    — A’s 7, Astros 6— This was the 9,000th win in A’s franchise history; 5th game in MLB history where four players homered twice each.


    **********

    Armadillo: Friday's List of 13: Random stuff with weekend here…….

    13) In the 50 years of divisional play in baseball, only three times has a team won its division with a road record that was 10+ games under .500. This year’s Cubs are 23-38 on the road; they’re tied for first place in the NL Central.

    12) I’m guessing that these NFL joint practices where teams meet up for a couple days and practice against each other are more helpful than just a normal team practice. Breaks up the monotony of training camp- practicing against new faces increases whatever intensity there is.

    11) Marlins 13, Dodgers 7— If a baseball game was ever played in a library, it would’ve sounded like this; the 5,000 or so fans who were there didn’t make much noise, to the point where the Dodger TV guys were talking about how players/managers were more likely to be ejected on a day like this, because the umpires could hear every word they said.

    10) Interesting discussion on ESPN the other night on how catchers now value pitch-framing more than blocking low pitches or throwing out baserunners trying to steal.

    As long as there is no baserunner on third, catchers now often stay on one knee and focus on getting their pitchers called strikes. There has been an increase in wild pitches/passed balls in recent years, and this is the reason why, not because pitchers’ stuff is any nastier.

    9) When you look at stats for AAA pitchers this year, important to keep in mind that they’re using the major league (juiced) baseball this year for the first time.

    Last year, Lehigh Valley led the International League wth 145 homers; so far this year, eight of the 14 IL teams have hit more than 145 and the season still has a few weeks left.

    8) Last nine baseball seasons, the first player to get to 30 home runs has been a different player every year. Jose Bautista reached 30 homers first in both 2010-11.

    7) Baseball stuff:
    — Reds scratched 1B Joey Votto (lower back).
    — A’s signed P Matt Harvey to a minor league deal. I’m not sure having Harvey pitch in Las Vegas is an ideal situation, seeing how Harvey has had issues getting to the ballpark on time in his career.

    6) Michigan’s basketball program offered a scholarship to rising Class of ’20 recruit Jace Howard, an unranked forward prospect from Miami. Chances are the Wolverines will get him, seeing how Jace Howard is the son of new Michigan coach Juwan Howard.

    5) JT Realmuto caught only one game as a high school senior; he played shortstop mostly, but a wise scout projected him as a catcher and now Realmuto is a very wealthy catcher.

    4) If you’ve ever seen the reality show “Chrisley Knows Best,” on USA Network, you probably won’t be seeing it anymore. Todd and Julie Chrisley were indicted on tax evasion and fraud charges, and are in custody in Georgia.

    The 12-count indictment also alleges the Chrisleys committed bank fraud and wire fraud conspiracy, as well as other illegal stuff.

    3) DeMarcus Cousins hurt his knee Monday while working out in Las Vegas; fears are that he tore his ACL. He signed a one-year, $3.5M contract with the Lakers in July, has earned $83M+ in salary in his career, but he hasn’t had much injury luck the last few years.

    2) Former Oklahoma/Steelers QB Landry Jones became the first quarterback to sign a contract with the XFL, which begins play next February. Jones had recently worked out for the Detroit Lions after one of their backup QB’s got hurt.

    The XFL’s first player draft is in October.

    1) Great name for a racehorse: Tequila Sheila (25-1) ran in the 5th race at Gulfstream Thursday. Good name, slow horse; Tequila Sheila didn’t hit the board, or come close.

    Dallas stunned WNBA bettors – our staff included – with a 28-point fourth quarter to edge the L.A. Sparks with just eight available players on the roster Wednesday night.

    The Wings, who were as big as 7-point home underdogs, trailed 64-58 heading into the final frame before catching fire and knocking down 10 of 17 shots from the field, including four 3-pointers.

    Dallas is back in action tonight, still missing suspended forwards Kristine Anigwe and Kayla Thornton and playing without the injured Tayler Hill and Azura Stevens. With those depleted ranks, a short turnaround, and a potential letdown spot after knocking off the West Conference’s best team, Dallas is a tempting fade Friday.

    New York stumbled into Texas on a six-game losing skid but has been competitive in the opening 20 minutes of those contests. The Liberty are averaging 41.3 points per first half during this slide, while allowing 45.2 points against in the opening two quarters: a margin of minus-3.9 points.

    However, things fall apart for New York in the second half, averaging only 32 points in the final 20 minutes over those six losses and watching foes pour it on with 42.3 average points in that same frame. The Wings are the second-best second-half defense in the WNBA with an average margin of minus-1.2 points in the last two quarters but are getting outworked by a 3.3 points per first half.

    PREDICTION: New York first half +2.5


    LOS ANGELES SPARKS AT CHICAGO SKY (Pick, 162.5)

    These teams met just a few days ago, with Los Angeles squeaking out an 84-81 win at home over Chicago but failing to cover as 6.5-point home chalk. Tonight, the Sparks are coming off a disappointing loss at Dallas Wednesday, which snapped a five-game winning streak for L.A.

    The Sky have been off since that August 11 encounter, giving them plenty of time to reflect and review that close loss. Chicago is without center Jantel Lavender for the rest of the season after she broke her foot against Las Vegas on August 9 but starting guard Courtney Vandersloot, who missed the previous matchup with L.A. due to illness, is expected return to the lineup after plenty of rest between games.

    The Sky’s offense has been firing on all cylinders this month, averaging 89 points per game in August – more than seven points above its season average. The Sky run the fastest pace in the WNBA and have upped that intensity to a pace of 104.55 over its last four games.

    Los Angeles is no stranger to fast-paced games either, owning the fourth-fastest pace in the league. The Sparks have played Over the total in four straight games heading into Friday while the Sky bring a five-game winning run for Over bettors as well.

    PREDICTION: Over 162.5

    Sun rally late to stun Storm
    August 16, 2019
    By The Associated Press


    UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) Shekinna Stricklen scored 24 points and made a pair of free throws with 4.3 seconds left to help the Connecticut Sun rally from a late seven-point deficit and beat the Seattle Storm 79-78 on Friday night.

    Connecticut (18-8) was down 76-69 with 1:47 left before closing the game on a 10-2 run capped by Stricklen's two free throws. Alyssa Thomas added 17 points, 11 rebounds and five steals, including one to seal the game after Stricklen's free throws.

    Seattle (14-13) had its largest lead at 61-48 late in the third quarter, but Stricklen scored nine points during Connecticut's 10-2 run to close the period.

    Natasha Howard scored 27 points on 11-of-15 shooting and grabbed 10 rebounds for the Storm. Jewell Loyd added 15 points, Crystal Langhorne scored 14 and Alysha Clark 11.

    Jordin Canada missed the game because of a minor shoulder issue.

    MYSTICS 86, LYNX 79

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Ariel Atkins scored 18 points, Emma Meesseman added 17 points and the Mystics clinched a playoff berth with a win over the Lynx.

    The Mystics (19-7), who have the best record in the WNBA by a game over Connecticut, surged into the lead for good during a 13-4 run capped at 74-70 on LaToya Sanders' 19-foot jumper with 3:32 left in the game.

    Meesseman's 3-pointer with 51.8 seconds left made it 80-73 and Washington made all six of its free throws from there.

    Elena Delle Donne had 14 points and eight rebounds, Aerial Powers had 14 points and Natasha Cloud scored 13 for the Mystics.

    Sylvia Fowles had 16 points and eight rebounds to lead the Lynx (13-13). Damiris Dantas and Danielle Robinson added 14 points each. Napheesa Collier scored 13 and Odyssey Sims 10.

    WINGS 83, LIBERTY 77

    ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Allisha Gray scored 22 points and the Wings took the lead in the final minute to win their third straight, beating the Liberty.

    Isabelle Harrison's basket with 40.4 seconds left gave Dallas a 76-75 lead. Arike Ogunbowale, who added 21 points for the Wings (9-17), followed with three consecutive free throws and Gray added a pair to make it 81-75 with 17.4 seconds to go.

    Bria Hartley cut the deficit to four with a pair of free throws for the Liberty (8-17), but that was as close as they would get.

    Tina Charles led New York with 25 points.

    New York, which has lost seven straight, trailed by seven in the middle of the fourth quarter but rallied to take the lead at 73-71 with 1:43 to go.

    SKY 91, SPARKS 81

    CHICAGO (AP) - Allie Quigley scored 26 points to help the Sky beat Los Angeles to pull into a tie for fourth place with the Sparks.

    Courtney Vandersloot added 17 points and nine assists, Astou Ndour and Diamond DeShields had 11 points each, and Stefanie Dolson scored 10 for the Sky (15-10).

    Vandersloot scored six points while Chicago closed the game on an 11-2 run after Candace Parker's basket pulled the Sparks (15-10) within 80-79 with 2:56 left.

    The Sky led by as many as 17 in the first half, but the Sparks erased the deficit when Chiney Ogwumike's basket gave Los Angeles a 64-63 lead with 1:25 to go in the third quarter. Chicago retook the lead 21 seconds later and never trailed again.

    Chelsea Gray had 25 points for the Sparks.

    MERCURY 77, DREAM 68

    DeWanna Bonner had 27 points and 13 rebounds to help the short-handed Mercury snap a three-game skid with a victory over the Dream.

    Camille Little's jump shot in the final minute of the third quarter sparked an 18-4 Mercury run that ended at 67-62 with 6:24 left in the game. The Dream closed the deficit to 70-66 before Phoenix pulled away for good with seven straight points.

    The Mercury's Brittney Griner served the second of her three-game suspension. Diana Taurasi (hamstring), Essence Carson (calf), Sancho Lyttle (knee) and Alanna Smith (ankle) were out with injuries for Phoenix (12-13).

    The Dream (5-21) led most of the way and took control late in the third quarter with an 11-2 run capped at 58-49 on Brittney Sykes' pair of free throws.

    Renee Montgomery had 17 points to lead Atlanta, which lost its 11th in a row - the franchise's worst stretch since starting 0-17 in 2008.

    ************************************************** **********

    Tuesday’s Den: 13 of my all-time favorite TV shows…….

    13 of my favorite TV shows (in alphabetical order):
    — Batman— When you’re six years old, and in the opening credits every week, they show “WHAP!!! POW!!! BIFF!!!” and your name is Biff, this quickly becomes a favorite show.

    The villains were some pretty big stars back then (Burgess Meredith, Cesar Romero, Milton Berle, Vincent Price, Liberace, Ethel Merman)

    I haven’t seen much of the Batman movies that have been made over the years, but the TV show had some humor; one week there was a 3-foot Martian on the loose in Gotham City, and Robin blurts out “Holy interplanetary yardstick, Batman!!!” Good stuff.

    — Billions— Showtime series about a hedge fund manager who pushes the boundaries of the law while his marriage falls apart. His arch-enemy is a prosecutor in NYC who is into S&M and his wife is his dominatrix— the wife is also the psychiatrist for the hedge fund manager’s company.

    Small world. This show is really well-written- the next season will probably run after football season.

    Trivia: Paul Giamatti plays the prosecutor; he is the son of former baseball commissioner Bart Giamatti. I suggested a cameo role for Pete Rose, but so far, that hasn’t happened.

    — CSI— I spent a good chunk of my work career searching fingerprints and working for the NY State Division of Criminal Justice, so I enjoyed all the CSI shows, but especially the one set in Las Vegas— the actors seemed to have a chemistry working together.

    One of my weirder ideas (a teacher friend of mine scoffed at this) is that CSI should be taught to all high school kids, so they realize how difficult it is to get away with crimes, so maybe there would be fewer crimes. What could it hurt?

    — Green Acres— As a kid, I spent lot of hours watching Green Acres re-runs; my dad would walk into the room, say “Why the hell are you watching that?”, but within five minutes, he’d be sitting there laughing harder than me and would leave the room before my mother came in and saw the both of us laughing. She wasn’t a big fan of Hank Kimball or Arnold Ziffel.

    — Law and Order— 20 years, 456 episodes, a great launching point for lot of acting careers, not to mention the spinoff shows that branched off this original show.

    Take Billions; there are 32 actors who have appeared in 12+ episodes of Billons; 14 of those 32 actors appeared in at least one episode of Law and Order, and two others were in Law and Order SVU, and that doesn’t count Eric Bogosian, who was in Law and Order: Criminal Intent for 61 episodes, but was only in 10 episodes of Billions (so far).

    — Magnum PI— I’ve never been to Hawai’i, but if I ever went, would like to visit Robin Masters’ estate; I’m told you can visit there, it is kind of a museum or something.

    One of the best episodes was when Frank Sinatra played a retired New York City cop whose granddaughter was murdered— this was near the end of both the series and Sinatra’s career.

    The overriding themes of the show were that great friends will do all kinds of stuff for each other, and if you’re really good looking and drive a Ferrari, women will like you 🙂

    — M*A*S*H— Years later, after watching re-runs of this show on our local channel 10 and the Boston channel for hours at a time, it dawned on me that this was actually a very sad show, with humor/jokes masking the grotesque sadness of wartime Korea.

    The McLean Stevenson episodes were the best; he was Colonel Henry Blake for the first 75 episodes, and a lot of them were classics, just funny as hell.

    — Mr Ed— This show ran on network TV from 1961-66, so I never saw it until the re-runs came on at 4:30 weekdays on a local channel in the early 70’s. Mr Ed was a talking horse, but he only talked to Wilbur Post, an architect who worked at home but never actually seemed to work.

    Mr Ed was a big Dodger fan; his favorite player was OF Willie Davis. In one episode, the horse takes batting practice against Sandy Koufax, and hits a ball off the wall at Dodger Stadium, with the bat held in his mouth. A fun show, not necessarily a realistic one.

    — Odd Couple— As a kid, Oscar Madison was one of my heroes; a sportswriter who always spilled food on his clothes but was a good natured guy who somehow dated a doctor or one of the Pidgeon sisters.

    To this day when I see my cousin’s husband, we recite lines from Odd Couple episodes; when they owned a greyhound racing dog , or appeared on Password (a game show), or when Oscar dated a princess from some obscure European country “You bought her a salty pretzel; oh, boy!!!” Great stuff.

    — Ray Donovan— The most violent program on this list; just about everybody on this Showtime series that isn’t related to the Donovans eventually winds up dead.

    Ray Donovan is a fixer for rich people, but he can’t fix his own family; his wife passes away from cancer, and the last time we saw him, he was still struggling with that.

    Live Schreber plays Ray, Jon Voight plays his father (a genuine creep); they’ve had guest stars like Susan Sarandon, James Woods, Wendell Pierce, Hank Azaria. Alan Alda, C Thomas Howell.

    Very good show but also very violent.

    — Suits— This show is winding down its last season on USA Network; it is about a law firm that hired a young guy with a photographic memory who had one small problem— he is a college dropout who never went to law school, but he gets paid to take bar exams for other people.

    The show had to change directions because one of the actresses (Meghan Markle) moved to England after she married Prince Harry in real life. Her character was married to Mike (the fraudulent lawyer) so they got written out of the last couple years of the show.

    — West Wing— Martin Sheen plays the President in this show; his cabinet included Rob Lowe, Allison Janney, Richard Schiff, John Spencer— great cast.

    Actor Duke Hill was in both West Wing and Suits; Mary Louise Parker was in this and is also in Billions. Alan Alda was in this, Ray Donovan and of course, M*A*S*H

    Jimmy Smits, Mary MacCormack, Tim Matheson, Gary Cole, just a ton of excellent actors.

    In one episode, President Bartlet has to throw out the first pitch at an Orioles’ game, but he never played ball, so one of his aides has to teach him how to throw a baseball in a hallway in the White House, where an errant toss breaks an expensive vase.

    — White Shadow— Ken Howard plays a washed-up NBA player who becomes a high school basketball coach in Los Angeles. Show only lasted three years, because well, high school kids graduate so they would’ve had to turn most of the cast over every other year.

    The basketball scenes were really well-done; Gwyneth Paltrow’s father was the creator of the show. Lot of the issues they tackled in this show were issues that real high school in the inner city had to deal with. Ken Howard was great as Coach Reeves; he wasn’t some all-knowing guy; he had flaws but he fought for his kids and they respected him for it (most of the time).
