Sport: The only time in MLB history a team had two triple plays in a single game

Former All-Star SS Paul DeJong could be activated by Cardinals this weekend

  Former All-Star SS Paul DeJong could be activated by Cardinals this weekend The 28-year-old struggled to start the season with the Cardinals before eventually being sent down to Triple-A Memphis in May. In 24 games this season for St. Louis, DeJong batted .130/.209/.208 with a home run and seven RBI. DeJong has seemingly turned things around at the plate during his minor league stint. In 51 games for Memphis, DeJong batted .249/.313/.552 with 17 home runs and 54 RBI. An All-Star in 2019, DeJong has failed to regain that form since. After hammering 30 home runs and driving in 78 runs in 2019, DeJong has just 23 homers and 77 RBI over the past three seasons combined.

In the first prep game for both Greece and Spain, Giannis set the tone with 31 points, 10 rebounds, and three assists. The Greek national team in front of 15.000 fans got an easy 86-70 win.

Report: Teams closely tracking start of former Red Sox playoff hero Nathan Eovaldi

  Report: Teams closely tracking start of former Red Sox playoff hero Nathan Eovaldi Eovaldi is 4-3 with a 3.14 ERA during his postseason history and helped pitch the Red Sox to the 2018 World Series. His ability to pitch in big games makes him attractive to teams. But he is 0-1 with an 11.08 ERA in July and has allowed 23 hits and 17 runs in 13 innings. If he turns things around on Monday in Houston, contenders may want to take a chance on him.The 32-year-old pitcher has no interest in being traded, though.“I love the organization here,” Eovaldi said on WEEI Friday. “I want to be a part of this organization forever.”For the season, Eovaldi is 4-3 with a 4.43 ERA and 80 strikeouts in 81.1 innings.

Brewers designate veteran reliever Jake McGee for assignment
